We booked for 3nights 4 days for an adfordable price and we enjoyed our stay. What I like most is therpy have a free make up room service everyday just like in 5 star hotels. The bad side is you have to walk for about 5-10 mins to reach the hostel from caoyang rd station but that is not an issue. Pharma and 2 Lawson convenience stores are nearby but no other fastfoods nearby. If you consider budget yet a comfy olace to stay In. Imwoukd recommend this one and would like to go back if given a chance to visit shanghai again.
It was everything you would expect from a Youth Hostel, I was gladly surprised by the cleanliness of the room and the facilities in general. I would happily come back here. The location is not the most convenient, have to do some walking to reach a bus stop (between 500m to 1 km), no subway station around and a construction in the main street makes transit hellish. Also, the Hostel is hidden within a residential compound but once you get there the place is great.
location near train station, early check in is okay 😊 staff is friendly
I would rate my stay 7/10. Staff - 7/10 we were asking them to help us get a taxi but they kept on asking “are you sure that’s only your luggage?”. And I said, “yes ofcourse I am sure, that’s the only luggage we carry from airport to here and the taxi didn’t even complaint.” Instead of getting us a cab, they just let us leave without a cab. And its kinda rude. Specially the girl on the front desk. However they are fluent speaking in English. location - 5-8 min. from the subway Room - No Bidet. Sofa also smells. But its okay room rate 7/10 Housekeeper - Kind and helpful. 9/10
One of the best”
Very affordable Best location with 3 lines. One line goes straight to Disneyland Staff cleans the room every day Wifi is strong in the lobby but no wifi in the room Storage room after check out Great place!!!
Good Value for the money”
I just stayed here 1 night and it was a very good value for the money. I didn't spend a lot of time in the hostel itself so I can't say much outside of the value and the room. Your room card also acts as the switch for the electricity for the room so that can be annoying. Also the elevator was out of order during our stay so we had to take the stairs. It wasn't an issue for me, but it could be for someone with luggage and small children.
Sleep and go”
Room is clean / bathroom is also clean surprisingly - i feel it is quite inadequate since the entire floor would share such limited toilets and bathrooms / The guy was nice enough to let me check in despite of early arrival but that was pretty much the only time / not so far from train station not too hard to locate the place. What i really dont like the most would be that they do not provide towels they only up for sell 40 RMB.
That’s really a international guest house ”
You can see a lot of foreigners stay there and some of them can speak chinese. Quiet and toilet is only 50 % clean. Some locker was broken and you must bring the padlock yourself to keep your valuable thing safe. Receptionist is helpful and friendly.
Ok for budget traveller”
Great price for the room, but unfortunately the room had a very strong smoke smell that didn't go away for our stay and made us feel quite unwell, despite requesting a non-smoking room. Was easy enough to get around using the metro in Shanghai from this location though, and otherwise the cleanliness was ok for a budget hostel.
Overal is ok
Real nice location, good spot to be for exploring. ”
Cozy enough rooms, a.c. was a nice addition. Maybe a 5 min walk from the nearest train station, easy to get out of the city or into the city from there. Family Mart and Lawson are a couple minutes walk away as well. Comfy enough bed, clean bathrooms. Have their own bar so cooking food is a no go, but drinking is easy as pie if desired.
Location is okay. others is okay”
5-10 minutes walk to the metro. in front have snack store. But the room was used for smoking, but cleanliness is still acceptable. They have bar and pool game...library. Good atmosphere. I hope they can separate which room used for smokers and non smokers...
very close to train stn, nice quiet room”
Remember to check out the morning market at the back of the hostel and must have the local egg pancake with crunchy biscuit as filling. I'll also remember the cat lazing under the winter sun. They have a really nice cafe with games. Discount given for my stay when returning to Shanghai
Great location, mall and train station (Caoyang road, exit 7, line 11) are 5 mins away. Family Mart & Lawson are 3 mins away. It's train station is directly connected to Disney. Airport is 1.5 hours away. Staff's nice as well. Would definitely go back.
Value for money! Good location ”
It’s considered one of the budgetary hotel in shanghai. The location is great since it’s close to the line 4 of the metro! The room is abit tiny, but it’s worthit for money since it doesn’t have much dust!!! It is clean !!! However, it is abit hard to find great food to eat around that area, so it’s better to grab a full stomach before decided to lay in the hotel!
Ненавижу этот отель. Hate this hotel. ”
Пришлось жить здесь из-за расположения в центре. Интернет в номерах отсутствует, есть только в лобби, но и там с большими проблемами. Мало того, что 2 кровати в дорме стоят как отдельная комната с душем в Шеньжене. Цены на комнаты постоянно скачут и могут внезапно вырасти почти в 2 раза. Персонал лицемерный и противный. Изображают дружелюбие, но на самом деле встретил абсолютно наплевательское отношение к проблемам постояльцев. Никакой помощи от них можете не ждать. За 2 года путешествий по Азии - один из худших отелей, где доводилось останавливаться. Если можете заплатить чуть большую цену, лучше остановиться в любом другом отеле. Had to live here because of the location in the center. For 2 years of travel around Asia, it is one of the worst hotel I have stayed. There is have no internet in the rooms, only in lobby, but there work with problems. Prices for rooms always jump and can suddenly grow almost 2 times. The staff is hypocritical and nasty. Depict friendliness, but in fact I met absolutely disregard for the problems of guests. Any help from them you should not wait. Hate this hotel. If you have money enough, better to choose any other hotel.
The wifi is faster, front desk people are fluent in english, and they even have weight scale in the lobby to help you weight in your luggage, in case you take those low-cost airlines with baggage limit.
The only thing wrong was when I was departing, I asked if they could call a taxi to the airport for me, they then made me pay 250 at reception(no other option), then had to wait 25 minutes and as soon as I hopped in taxi it showed on his screen that he had received 170rmb from the Host. I though the place was great till they did that, I hope they change this policy.
not clean, no WiFi, loud ”
seems like they don't clean the room, there is no WiFi, no water boiler in room, you can hear nearly everything from the rooms next door, the restaurant looks good
It’s a great place to live! Peaceful and beautiful. The people there are friendly and helpful. ”
I’ve been traveling to Shanghai for a year almost every week and it’s the only place where I feel comfortable. You better give it a chance to visit 👍
