Traveler’s Insight: 
Whenever Kyle and I want to getaway to the city, this is always our accommodation of choice!  It is located perfectly on the MRT Line 2, which take us to all our favorite Shanghai locations (Shanghai markets, People’s Square, the Pearl Tower, etc…).  This hostel is very up to date, has spacious rooms, big beds, and nice showers.  In most ways it feels like a hotel that has a hostel atmosphere.  All in all, I would recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Shanghai.
