This is a large hostel located within walking distance of The Bund in Shanghai. It is ideally located for those who want to spend their time walking along the river admiring the architecture and skyline of Shanghai. It is a very large hostel with helpful...More
The hostel was excellent value for money, in a great location and large. Security was good as you needed a key to get up to the dorms and then into the rooms themselves. Each bunk had a light, a shelf and a locker. Only bad...More
Stayed 3 nights in a double room. Although a bit pricey, we were pleasantly surprised with one of the best room conditions we had during our trip to China: spacious room, nicely decorated, very clean, new bathroom. Location is also great, 5 min walk from...More

While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive
restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
