              I didn’t have high expectations of this place since it is really cheap, but I didn’t expect the bathroom to be very filthy. Location is the main reason to book this place. It is located near the subway and the shopping district.

              The hotel is in a great spot, less than 5 minutes walk to the nearest train station and Nanjing Shopping District. It is also close to The Bund, abou 15 mins walk. The standard double room has a lot of space and decent bathroom although there is no cleaning service. The staff will only replace towels and collect garbage but will not clean the room neither change the bedding. the staff are not too friendly but they can speak English. The restaurant next to the hotel serve great sea food in a decent price. Overall I will still recommend on the basis of price and location.

              From Pudong Airport just ride Line 2 (Green Line) then get off EAST NANJING the just walk 3-5 mins from station. We were able to check in early since the room was available, first impression of the room was so spacious for 3 people. It was a basic room with no cabinet , no ref or microwave in the room but we don't mind it. The bed sheets looks it was replaced, the bathroom has shower with hot/warm water.They don't provide free coffee but they have a cafe downstairs and No tooth brush, tooth paste, shampoo and soap.They provide towels for private room, they empty trash everyday but other than that they don't arrange the bedding so they don't touch your stuff but there was a little issue with ac. Receptionist understands and speaks well in English. The lift was small from usual but it was okay.

              This is my second time actually staying at this place. Super close to the Nanjing road metro station. Recommend to you if you stay in the dorms, bring your own slippers is kinda idea. Cause when you go out to shower you will get your feet dirty again and bring dirt to your own bed. However the sheet and bed was always clean. Will stay again next time.

              Walking distance from Nanjing Pedestrian street and The Bund. Also close to the train station. To reach the hostel, take subway line 2 to East Nanjing Station get off at exit 1. Turn right then right again. Upon reaching the stoplight/pedestrian, turn left then you will see the hostel.

              Fantastic location”

              I stayed in a private room. It was big, and the toilet/shower worked well. Staff came to take garbage and change towels whether I wanted them to or not (no "DO NOT DISTURB" signs for the door, unfortunately). Note that there are no in-room safes, so hide your valuables or take them with, but I had no problems at all with anything missing from the room, and the staff here is probably trustworthy. Bed linens on the comfortable bed were clean. I did not use the air conditioning. There is an elevator, but it is shut down from 11pm-8am, so be aware of that if you have big bags. I could not get internet to function on two of my devices, but I did not bother the staff about this as I had a SIM card that included data. It is Chinese internet anyway, so expect to be behind the Great Firewall. The location is what you're paying for here, and it is less than two minutes walk from the famous Nanjing Road Pedestrian Area and very close to Nanjing East Road subway station! 9.5/10

              It is alright.”

              Location is excellent as it is super close to Nanjing Dong Road (one block of walk), restaurants, grocery, department stores... and location is pretty safe. Staff weren't helpful at all though, if anything they ignored you completely even if you're speaking perfect Chinese. They were kind of rude. Cleanliness can be improved.

              Location is very good. It is near to Line 2 metro station. It is near to the pedestrian steet which you can linger until midnight. Staff was not very friendly. No smile and no eye contact. Air conditioner was dripping water and I told the management. But the management insisted that the air conditioner working just fine. Room smells awful with wet lingerie hanging around

              Good enough ”

              Location is good, so many restaurants where you can buy food. Easily accessible to MRT and sightseeing area. Just don't stay here in winter as the rooms are so cold, no heatpad in bed also. But overall I'll come back here in spring or summer maybe.

              Great location”

              The room is space enough, but the lighting inside the room is too dark. Near to nanjing road and easy to find eats nearby. The bed is too hard, not comfortable, room is clean but the water kettle that I get is dirty and can't clean it at all.

              Good value, Convenient location. ”

              I stayed in a 6 bed dorm that was a little cramped, but clean and comfortable. Bathroom facilities were clean and abundant and the cafe was good. Great location, very central and close to public transport.

              Good location. Rude staff!”

              It is near to MRT station and NanJing Road shopping district. Everything was fine except the staff was very rude. Not really helpful. Such a terrible customer service skill. Please take note and improve.

              Good location in Shanghai!”

              The location is pretty near from Shanghai Metro and accessible to walk to The Bund. Have a large living area and kitchen, I like it! Toilet and batroom are clean, they are really serious about that because I caught few times (in the same day) cleaner doing clean every toilet and that's good. Staff speaks English fluent and it's nice to stay there! They don't provide sandals as well but they sell it I guess in the reception.
