Overall a great experience at the hostel. I would definitely suggest some tips 1) there should be no hot water time restrictions for the use of rest room 2) the staff should work on the interaction of people living there every evening. Maybe hold help individuals get into groups to go around shanghai... 3) the kitchen definitely needs to be upgraded... Rest all is good

Certainement la pire auberge où il m'ait été donné de séjourner. Des draps tâchés, jaunis et troués. Le chauffage cassé (et une fois réparé, peu puissant) qui oblige à dormir avec son manteau et son écharpe, alors que l'on sait la dureté du froid en hiver à Shanghai. L'eau est régulée (pas d'accès à l'eau chaude de 12h à 17h, puis de 1h à 7h, et quand bien même on fait l'effort de s'asseoir sur sa grasse matinée, l'eau est n'est même pas tiède. Le seul point positif est la localisation, proche du métro People Square, et des magasins d'East NanjingLu. J'ai séjourné dans de meilleures auberges dans cette ville, à prix (environ 200rmb) et localisation équivalents. Pour ma part, je n'y retournerai pas.

Buena relación calidad-precio. A 10 minutos del metro. Única pega: horrible olor (era verano) en la entrada del hostal, pero dentro no hay problema.

We had a double bed room with a window. The bed was comfortable, which is unusual for China. The room is not sound proof, and there,is a lot of street noise early mornings from the meat and vegetable market below. We were happy with our room, but the other rooms without windows I did not like at all. Bin wasn't emptied every day which was unhygienic . Meals in cafe were nice and good value.
