Without a doubt it is the best accommodation option for backpackers in the Bund, Shanghai's colonial tourist area. Located next to the river it offers stunning views of the sunrise. The hotel has double rooms, but also offers a YHA hostel, with "cabins", because the decor is entirely marine, and the rooms are shared. The reception staff speak English well and are very friendly, and the rooftop bar is one of the best options at night, with breathtaking views of the skyscrapers across the river (the Jinmao Tower and TV Tower). Pure Blade Runner scenery.
