We were there in July and stayed in The Bund Riverside Hotel. It's not a hostel and in fact we were upgraded to a suite but we managed to get a deal on it on Expedia or Booking.com and it worked out at about NZD70 per night. Not dirt cheap but a great price for somewhere so close to the Bund and all the action. We couldn't find a decent hostel anywhere near there. And the views across the city were fabulous.

Hi! I usually stay with friends when I go to Shanghai, but from what I've seen and heard most hostels are quite central. Shanghai isn't as big as other cities so getting around between main attractions shouldn't be a problem.

Hi,

You could have a look at TravellersPoint SHANGHAI Travel guide. And then move on to their Accommodation section - use the map there to see where the hotels are clustered.
Hotelscombined is my preferred site to research accommodation.

Hi hasbeen, yes im checking on it. But sometimes i consider more comments from people directly, i hope you understand what i mean. I love to hear feedbacks from people who give comments to your post cause sometimes those who were already posted on some sites are inaccurate (sometimes) ;) but thanks for reminding me about the travellerspoint accommodation section, i appreciate it, ;)

Hi,

About 100 KM due east from Shanghai is Suzhou. I had a very nice tour of the the Gardens & Canals there from Shanghai. It might be worth a few days there. One day was not enough for me.

In Shanghai, If you can afford it, take the ferries that cross the river. 1RM for the cheap ones & 2RM for the expensive.

You can see some photos & read about my take on Suzhou & Shanghai ( & Beijing, Xian & the Wall if you like ) on my TP Blogo.

Cannot help with accommodation in either place as I was on a cruise, where the hotel room traveled with me.

We had two nights but only one full day in Shanghai having toured from Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu, a boat down the Yangtse to Yichang and then the bullet train to Shanghai. We wandered about the Bund and across the river and up a couple of the giant skyscrapers there.

No plans to go back in January - we'll be in Central America then!
