Really great value for money
Staff know that high proportion of staff are International, but dont account for it, dont try, are rude to everyone, and just horrible in general. The rudest staff I have ever experienced in what is actually a good hotel except their current staff. Especially two men working there at the moment are actually terrible at their job and many european's told me they felt uncomfortable and will not be staying there again because of these two men.
Great location Bar with good food and great views Staff know English Wifi in lobby
Noisy (though I think this was more the guests than any fault of the hostel) No wifi in rooms Concrete floor for showers and mold growing in showers Don't know why I expected any different b/c this hostel is in China, but no soap in bathrooms or toilet paper Toilets weren't the cleanest
overall is good
it will be great if there is a refill water facility.
excellent location, self laundry available for 5 RMB, nice toilets and shower room, nice locker, unique bunk bed design
staffs are less friendly, noisy bar at night, wifi is weak at 4th floor
Very good location.
Bad staff, very rude. Not very much good but the location.
I was in Room 509 for five nights. It's a corner room on the top floor. Tall windows on both sides, so you can get cross-ventilation. I requested no room service, and they respected that request. Huge room, excellent bathroom, with plenty of sink-side counter space. Shower is enclosed. Despite Lonely Planet's assertion, the staff was friendly and very helpful. The bar on top has a fantastic city view. . Location couldn't be better. Less than 10 minute walk to nearest subway station. About 20-25 minutes to walk to People Sq. Also a comfortable walk to the Yuyuan Garden. Fast and efficient wi-fi in the room.
There's a little noise from the jazz and blues bar across the street, but I never found it hard to sleep. There's a nearby church that chimes the quarter-hours, which might bother some.
view from the bar
booked for 10 days, left after two days. people up in dorm room on computers till early hours. people smoking at 3am in room. Lots of noise from street, absolute debarcle. Moved to a 4 star for 12 quid extra a night, would never go back to captains again.
Price,location, clean & comfortable. Easy access from Airport by subway and short walk. Minutes from the bund and the street mall. Walking street
Restaurant no longer open for breakfast. And Chinese food options limited. However lots of places nearby
Near the bund.
It's a chinese style service, means no smile, no explanation of facility.
Overall a bad experience mainly due to poor sleep conditions. Windows, walls very thin; I could hear loud jazz club music til 2am. The bathroom smelt bad. Also, hotel staff wasn't quite courteous most of the time. Wifi was somewhat okay. But the bar and the Bund skyline are really nice.
Location was good Room was clean enough for China On arrival lady at reception was really rude, all the other staff were ok
- Perfect location right at the Bund - Easy to reach all the sights - Clean - Nice and spacious dorm room (nobody gets in each other's way) - Staff helped us when we needed them, we arrived really late and check-in was no problem - No problem to leave our luggage for the departure day - Even if it probably not the very greatest place to spend your whole day you cannot ask for anything better and cheaper to sleep
- Although the bathrooms were cleaned regularly they smelled a bit which is probably due to so many people using them
I like the good location,have been there before, and the staff is friendly.
It is not as it was 4 years ago.seemed to have aged a lot. There is no longer a restaurant providing breakfast and no little fridge in the room.
The room was very spacious and it was a good location just off the bund. The room came with free toiletries and a washing line which was useful, the hotel also had a lift which was handy.
The staff were not that warm and did'nt really have time to help. The bar was very expensive and there are many good places to drink and eat close by so we didn't use the bar which is a shame as the roof top location was a selling point of the hostel. If they made the prices more reasonable we would have used it.
Location is great!
The sewage smell came through the pipes.
Depending on where you want to stay in Shanghai, the location of the Captain Hostel to The Bund is superb, about 10 steps and you're on her pavement. Walking distance to Nanjing Rd, Metro stations, Ferry terminals (for the obligatory night cruise of Haungpu River or to cross to Pudong), Peoples Square and the Yuyuan Gardens. Many of the city's late night bars/clubs are in the area (fantastic Blues & Jazz right across the street), but if it's outside casual bars you're after, the old French Concession area might be more your style. Stayed private room with ensuite, spacious and clean, room serviced daily for bins and bathroom but not bedding change. It's an older style so some of what might not look clean is just age really. In another area, this would be cheaper, but you're paying for the location. ICBC ATM and 24hr convenient store on either side of hostel's entrance. City map free at reception by request. 100rmb deposit for use of a blowdryer.
Captain Bar on Level 6 is over-rated or resting on the laurels of its abundantly recommended view (which is as spectacular as has been said). However, with small beers at 50rmb it's massively expensive for the surrounds and service (which is pretty much nil) it provides. Better and more upmarket bars in the old French Concession charge less. Its pricing also precludes budget travelers (and thus occupants of the hostel) congregating here, so there's no real area to hang out and meet fellow travelers. Bar is open to public. Entry foyer, where you can sit, is soulless and not configured for interaction.
Clean room, relatively good facility, good location. The view of Capital bar is awesome. Highly recommended.
The view of the Bund from the bar is excellent.
The toilet seemed rather smelly.
Fantastic view of the bund Helpful English speaking staff. Comfy bed
Price of drinks was a bit steep.
The location is excellent! Nice view from the terrace (but the bar there is too expensive!!!) Good sheets. Free drinking water. Close to this hotel there is a place (N' 256 Fuzhou rd) where they prepare excelent dumpling soup!
The toilets have bad smell. The crew is so, so, unpolite. The rooms are not so dark on the morning. There isn't a chill out room. They should check the shower's floor.
Great location, 100 metres from the Bund Close to the metro - 50 metres from East Nanjing station Large roomy dormitories Great bar with a spectacular view of the skyline
Prices in the bar - 40yuan for a diet coke that costs about 4 in the market next door - give me a break!!!!!
Good sized rooms and clean. Freshened every day. Rooftop bar overlooking the Bund.
I really like the location of the hostel.
Poor wifi. U have to go to the lobby to enjoy internet. No soap and shampoo in the bathroom. The staff are not friendly.
Aside from the fact that the location is perfect, Captain Hostel provides you with everything you could ever want at a totally fair price. I live in Beijing and travel around Asia often, including Shanghai. As far as hostels go, this is one of the best! And the captain bar is amazing!
Absolutely zero complaints.
