Staying at Lab Hostel / Shengsha Hotel is pretty much what you would expect for budget accommodation. Nothing was amazing but everything was okay. The staff weren't overly friendly or enthusiastic, but were helpful and knowledgeable when questioned. The room and beds weren't the most comfortable, but were clean. The bathroom was slippery, with subpar water pressure, but the water was hot, the sink spacious, and the towels soft. 5 minute walk to the nearest subway station. Only major complaint was noise; while there didn't seem to be much coming from adjacent rooms, the windows are paper thin. Construction, traffic, local neighborhood morale officers... you will hear any and all of these starting at 7 am sharp. Would not recommend if you want to sleep in.
