Description - Hostel

Once an traditional home built in 1924, Sleeping Dragon Hostel is now the perfect stop for backpackers, hostelers and anyone else traveling through Shanghai on a budget. While the building was recently renovated in 2008, it maintains a distinctly classical feel, resulting in a quirky blend of Chinese tradition and modern flair and convenience. Think chandeliers meet bunk beds, elaborate columns meet Beijing opera masks and antique Chinese furniture meets funky, modern artwork.

Room amenities

The heart of our hostel lies in our warm and inviting dorm rooms. We encourage our guests to mingle and make new friends. The dorm rooms are an important contributor to this aspect of Sleeping Dragon.

Due to the classical nature of our building, our dorm rooms are rather large. However, they manage to be warm and cozy, with spacious high ceilings and ornate balconies. Each comfy bed has it's own light and shelf for keeping your stuff, as well as an electrical outlet. Linens are included in the bed price. Also included is a key to locker where all of your belongings will stay safe. The brand new toilets and showering room are just across the hall, for easy access.

We have both mixed dorms (¥45) and a 6-bed female dorm (¥50). We also have rooms for those who require a little more privacy. Prices are seasonal and per person per night. Ensuite rooms include a private bathroom.

How to get there

From Pudong Airport, or Honqiao Airport , simply hop in a taxi and give the driver our address in Chinese characters.

From Pudong Airport expect to pay about ¥150 and from Honqiao expect to pay around ¥100.

From the Shanghai Railway station, the metro is the most convenient mode of transportation.

If you happen to be coming by metro, take metro line 4 to Linping Rd. You will then have a 5 minute walk down Zhoushan Rd. until you arrive at the hostel. Look for our Sleeping Dragon sign out front, at number 394.

Once you've arrived, taxis and metro/ subway are the most convenient ways to navigate Shanghai. Taxis can be caught just in front of the hostel and there is only a short, 5 minute walk to the Line 4 subway stop at Linping Rd.
