Probably the best value for budget traveling in Shanghai Feb 20, 2011
First off, the aesthetic of this hostel is one of the more eye-catching I've seen, with a pleasing dark-but-not-too dark ambience, and interesting if rather strange graffiti. There are decent activities there as well, including a pool table you need to pay a little for and a TV room with a selection of movies and channels that's not huge but has a little something for everyone. But my favorite thing about the hostel is simply the extensive lounging areas, from an outside swinging bench to benches and tables in the lounge room and one above the front desk, where there is a large selection of free-access books and magazines in Chinese, English and many other languages that the hostel's varied visitors leave there. The regular dorm rooms are by a considerable margin the cheapest in Shanghai, though there are two others that I know of in the same price range (one that's about 1 US dollar lower and the other about 50 cents highers), this one gives a better bargain than the others. The actual rooms are quite clean and provide adequate security, which was a surprising problem with some hostels in Shanghai (if you have too many things as I always do you can leave some behind the desk). For dorm users the outside showers are fine, always having hot water. But on some crowded days you may need to wait a bit for it. None of the staff is exactly fluent in English but two of them speak fully functional English and two more can communicate without too much trouble. So at almost all times there is someone who can do conversational English, and on most nights there is someone at the desk around the clock -- when there's not you can still enter at any time. Ordering the limited but perfectly decent food there is never a problem, as the staff often consults with foreigners for making sure their menus and instructions are right. Aside from English the staff is generally very helpful with any difficulties from finding tickets to giving directions. But Japanese and European tourists will probably find more difficulty as no one could do much in foreign language beyond English and Cantonese. A computer with net access is available there; on paper there's a fee but most of the time its usage is free, though you're usually urged not to stay on it too long if others are present. The location is definitely the best you can get at a hostel in Shanghai, as it's about 5 minutes walking to the Metro (just be warned that it's rather hard to find the first time) and quite close to many of Shanghai's star attractions (directly at a nice view of the Huangpu river). When I left they had just finished the bar there. I liked the atmosphere in it, but as I do not drink I'm not the one to judge that for you =)
