Would stay again. Great common area, with restaurant/bar and pool table. Private room very small - large luggage a squeeze. Bed comfortable, shower good! Reception staff friendly and helpful. Good location - short walk to metro.

Ended up staying here longer than planned. Great hostel, far enough away from Nanjing road to be out of central Shanghai but easy to hop on the subway and be there within 20 mins. Would recommend to everyone!

I come to Shanghai from a nearby suburb and have stayed at a few hostels in Shanghai. This is hands down the winner. Location is mostly easy to get to, not the best best but manageable. Good spot to meet people when they aren't on their phones. Chilled out, decent food and lots of room. It's the right choice.

Lovely hostel. Great downstairs area with comfy sofas, relaxing music, and lovely staff. Really helpful to have washing machines and a large drying area. Beds were comfy. The only thing that lets this place down is the food. Breakfast is fine. The coffee is excellent. It's good that they offer food in the evening , so that you don't have...

A friend and I stayed here for only 2 days/1 night but wished we could stay longer! We loved the communal space where we spent most of our time relaxing after being out and about. They have WiFi throughout the hostel but for some reason it didn't work very well with my devices but I had a pocket WiFi to...

There really isn't a bad thing to say about this place! Rooms are VERY clean, fresh white sheets every morning. We travelled during the hot hot summer months and the air conditioning was definitely a bonus. The food is great and there was a large selection for all meals (cheap too!) We actually ate most of our meals here because...

Mostly large rooms (the basic rooms are smaller, with some like Hong Kong hostels) with mostly hot water. Cheap beer, and quiet hostel. Close to a metro station (around 5-10 min walk) and shops. Arrive by day, as the only way to get there from airport at night was taxi, which cost around 200rmb for two people.

We stayed for Chinese New Year 2017 in a 4 person dorm room. Pros: Warm room, nice staff, tasty food, hot showers, lockers and space to relax downstairs. Cons: Communal showers and gets cold downstairs in the evening. Also sucks when you're on the top floor with no lift. All in all it was great price and very clean so...

Staying in Zhongshan Park

Neighbourhood Profile
Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been considered particularly fashionable by a majority of Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw, providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious restaurants with food ranging from fancy to affordable, and great hidden bars. Rents are also cheaper here than in other neighborhoods with the same conveniences. Aside from the obvious attractions, with its neighborhood fix-anything shops and pop-up street stalls that sell anything you need, you’ll never sacrifice Western comforts.

“We like quiet so a basic double suited us as it was an internal room. Slightly more money would get you a larger room with window.”
