Captain Youth Hostel (Fuzhou Road. The Bund)
Lonely Planet review
Despite being hands down the least friendly youth hostel in Shànghǎi, this naval-themed backpackers favourite still reels in punters by the boatload with its fantastic location and fine rooftop bar. There’s a microwave and washing machine, but all bathrooms are communal. Wi-fi is in the communal area only.
Our independent authors have visited Captain Youth Hostel (Fuzhou Road. The Bund) and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Shànghǎi.
