First of all, the location is really undesirable. Contrary to what the online directions are from the hostel, it's closer to a 15-20 minute walk from the nearest metro station, especially with a backpack. Not to mention the last part of the walk there is down the sketchiest alley- I was a bit nervous as a solo female traveler walking...

the hostel is fine if you want to spare money. The location if fine even if located near dirty homes. The welcome is so so. The stair to go to rooms is not convenient if you have big luggage. But good in a good place.

Shanghai Hidden Garden is 'hidden' in that it is about a 100 meter walk down a narrow road off of Pudong Avenue. It's got a great atmosphere, a friendly vibe. The staff is warmhearted and helpful. The owners are onsite. Metro is a ten minute walk away. Clean sheets. Great little noodle shops nearby. We stayed in a private room...

Hostel World rated this hostel as 61%. Now I see why. When I arrived at the entrance of the lane this hostel is located on, I saw slums for migrant workers. I thought "you've go to be joking, right?

We booked the 8 bed mixed dorms for 85 RMB / person, 1 room for us 8. Clean and enough space in the room, free locker, clean new white sheet & blanket for the bed, also clean bathroom. The location is about 10 minutes walk from the Pudong Avenue Metro station (line 4), also quite near to the World Expo...

There's not much to write. The quality of the hostel and the location are questionable. This is by far the worst hostel I have stayed in in China. Rooms and restrooms are not clean, the common kitchen is non-existent and dirty, it's hard to find a clean glass to drink water. This is a bit cheaper than other hostels but...
