I loved the dorm rooms here, they were very big, with tables and chairs and so forth. They were clean and the other travelers were friendly. The unique ship theme was cute, with the staff dressed in sailor outfits and ship memorabilia around the building. The bar on the top of the building was fantastic, allowing us to look over the entire city. The location was perfect, steps away from The Bund, and only a few minutes from Nanjing Lu and the subway station.
I didn’t have any problems with the reception staff (despite some bad reviews on the internet), and it was no problem when we stumbled in at 6am. The showers weren’t the cleanest, nor were the bathrooms. Overall though, I enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hostel.
