Solo at Captain hostel”
I found that Captain hostel and Shanghai in general catered well for Chinese tourists but not so well for non-Chinese speaking. Traveling alone I expected more suggestions of things to do from the hostel itself, probably coloured by my experiences at hostels in other countries (first time in China). I asked staff for a map and got a good English one which was great. When I asked how I could book an airport shuttle, the staff member I talked to didn't understand/know (and the Internet wasn't much help either) so I ended up taking public transport. I wouldn't go back to China again on my own, it all felt very hard.
Good hostel! Very close to Waitan!”
I stayed 4 days at this hostel. It was 8 beds female dormitory room. The room was wide and locker was good. Also the location was very very close to the Bund(Waitan). The cost was very cheap. I think the room was a little humid, even though I turned on the air conditioner. I will use this hostel when I visit Shanghai next time.
great location, awesome hostel”
if you're on a tight budget and looking for an accommodation at the heart of shanghai, it's a place to choose. the stuff is friendly, place is easy to find, right on the bund. has the biggest rooms i've ever seen in hostels.
Great location with adequate rooms”
Room was clean and had basic ensuite facilities. Our room had comfortable twin beds. Check in and departure was easy and quick. Staff were friendly and helpful.The downstairs coffee bar and seating area was a welcome change from the more formal facilities found in larger hotels. Very close to the Bund and local restaurants, shops and bars. If all you need is a bed and a shower this is a nice alternative to many other types of accomodation in the area. The views of Pudong at night from the rooftop bar were brilliant.
Great Location and big room!”
the location couldn't be better. only hostel i've ever stayed at that gave you amenities like toothbrushes, soap, shampoo and slippers! the room was huge, could have invited 4+ others to stay with us! haha... cons - were pretty minor, and easily overlooked for the price. furnishings were a bit old, light carpet in room was pretty stained, bathroom occasionally had a funk smell, but closing the door prevented it from entering the room. shower was a bit dingy. elevators were small and bar upstairs was expensive...but there were many things around so this was easy to avoid. pros - super convenient for sight seeing, comfortable bed/room, walking distance to subway, convenient store and restaurants with in walking distance. walking distance to the bund and nanjing st. friendly staff and nice cafe on the 1st floor. would highly recommend to any budget traveler.
Comfortable, clean hostel in great location”
I have been drinking at the Captain Bar on Floor 6 for two years. The night time view is great. This was my first time staying in the hostel /hotel. My room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom and wc were clean and more than adequate. Toothbrushes, comb soap provided as it is in most Chinese hotels these days. Check in was efficient and the reception staff spoke good English. There is a coffee bar on the first floor. Local shops are close by. I will stay there again.
Great stay! Great location”
We stayed 4 Nights in this Hostel. Room was big and clean, great view (6F). Bar was nice but overpriced. Location very close to the bund which is perfect for a walk.
Can't go wrong for the price! ”
Def going to stay here again paid $10(usd) to stay for the night. Real close to Bund, and other attractions. Roamed around for a while to find a bar and did not realize they had a speakeasy on the rooftop. Great drinks, atmosphere, great staff, bar tenders knew what they were doing.
Great hostel directly at Bund”
great hostel, very clean, at 100m from the bund and 5minfrom the metro, and 40min from the airport. definitely a place to recommend.
If you're looking for an affordable hostel located in The Bund area, this is perfect for you. The rooms are clean but the toilet's are kinda smelly. We arrived around 2am and there's a grumpy guy sleeping at the lobby. We had to wake him up to call the sleeping receptionist to process our check-in. Overall it's a good hostel because of affordability and location.
Great location and friendly staff”
The hotel is just situated beside the Bunds and within 200metres' walk from the nearest metro station, Nanjing East Road Station. The main area is beautifully decorated and gives a cosy feeling. The room is clean and comfortable. The bathroom is clean as well. All in all, the stay was enjoyable.
Unfriendly staff and poor wifi”
We made a booking of 2 twin bedrooms. As we reached shanghai at midnight, we have informed and confirmed with the staff that we will be checking in late. However when we reached the hostel, we waited a while to be served (by an unfriendly guy), and we were told that only we can only be given 1 twin room and 1 queen bed room. The staff was unfriendly (even though we spoke mandarin) and didn't bothered to welcome us with a smile. We went up the very small lift to our rooms but were thankful that the (twin) room that we got was very spacious. No view to speak of, but comfortable enough. The toilet was clean with toiletries and towels provided, as good as a 3+ star hotel. Wifi is only available in the rooftop bar and you MUST order something (Cheapest is like 35 yuan for a soft drink??!??!) before the staff keys in the password for you into your phone. That is terrible. In the end, we all ordered food/drinks unwillingly to be entitled to the wifi. However, the rooftop bar offers a view of the bund, which is quite beautiful at night. Besides poor service and wifi, the rooms are generally comfortable to stay in and value for money.
Great location in the Bund”
Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The elevator for our 5th floor twin room was great. Rooftop bar/patio was very nice with a great view of the river and amazing buildings. However, beers were $9 and food was a little pricey. There was a minimart out the front door to the left and an ATM to the right. Only a 3 minute walk to the water and beautiful colonial buildings. About 15 minute walk to nearest subway stop. Room was clean and good size with daily maid service - nice for a hostel.
great location with affordable price”
it was all great, we could see the beautiful view across the river from the Bund.. Captain bar in the rooftop is a very nice place to just sit back and relax while enjoying the view.
Budget Hotel in a good location”
Excellent location. It locates at the bund, 15 min walk from the nearest Subway station (Nanking Road East). The lobby looks old however the room is surprisingly clean & tidy. I did not expect slippers provided in the room :). Pleasant stay for 1 night.
Great location, big room, average cleanliness”
The hostel was easy to find and very well located, near to the Bund and Nanjing Road. It was secure and my room was of a good size. Room functioned well and bathroom and bed linen was very clean. The carpet in the room was filthy though so I was very glad I had taken my trusty traveller flip flops!!
Excellent location, great staff”
We were very impressed by this Hostel, and found that the staff were very friendly and helpful. For the price, the room was great.
location, comfort quiet”
This hotel is in the best location ,minutes away from the bund . Nanjings walking street & the Lazer tunnel to the left and Yuyuan gardens & the fantastic shopping markets to the right . The beds were really comfortable and we loved the bar with its magnificent view on the 6th flooralthough it was a little expensive.
Goodish location, not too near metro but you can walk south to sites and local areas or East Nanjing Road. Bed OK, room 603 wall needs cleaning up and shower curtain needs replacing. Reasonably clean, fairly quiet but was next to the rather good Captains Bar. Not an issue for me. On the whole no issues and right on the Bund/ferry crossing. Good for budget travellers and students. Seemed popular with nice guests.
Nice View from the Bar and Near the Bund”
Great Location, Room Big and walking distance to the bund. Is abit distance from the happening road but is very comfortable to away from the people. You can walk around and have so many attractive building from here.
