Our room at 2nd floor and this hostel seems like an old building modified into a modern hostel. There is a cafe for dine in. Water filter is not available, and the kettle provided for boiling water. Shared bathroom is large for shower, and cleanliness...More

The hostel is nice and well located but the service is very poor. We had no AC in the room (it was broken and it was 40 degree inside) and spend the all night suffering. The night staff was not speaking English and didn't helped...More
We stayed at a female dormitory with my sister for some nights. Although the hostel has very good location the room we stayed was dirty. Toilets as well. The food in the cafe was nice and stuff was ok.

People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and
work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.

I'm sorry, I lived there for seven months, and somehow I don't remember whether it's 11:00pm or 1:00am, but it's somewhere in that window. After hours, there's a security guard who sleeps at the desk (always one of several males), but he doesn't speak English, and the hostel staff have told me that one of the night guards (if not more than one of them) doesn't even speak particularly proper Mandarin. You can come and go at the hostel at any hour, as the guard is always there to let you in, but check-in is computerized and involves registering your passport data with the local police, so you'd want to arrive on at least that first night prior to the evening hours. Try calling them to ask what to do about late-night arrivals; most of the front desk staff speak reasonably good English. Good luck!
