Great hostel in fantastic city, staff very helpful but need a little more practice with there English but they try very hard, located in quite lane with security coded gate, good wi fi connection and free internet for first 30 minutes on hostels own computers but they do not time you, they have free DVD's to use plus DVD players also free in lounge they also have cycle hire for 25rmb a day no deposit and with that they give you a bottle of water and map. hostel is a short taxi ride from main train station cost 10rmb and half an hour train ride to Shanghai on D train cost 31rmb each way 1st class, all in all a great time had by all. only negative they do not sell food or cold drinks but shops very close.
