    Actually, the train travel time for Xiamen -- Shanghai has been reduced drastically with the new D trains.
    Xiamen -- Shanghai South:
    D3204 (1110--1905) 7h55min
    D3202 (1450--2241) 7h51min
    Fare is 358/429 RMB for 2nd/1st-class seats.
    For hostels, if you Google for "Shanghai hostel" you'll turn up a lot of results. Hiker IYH and Etour IYH are the most centrally located; stay clear of Captain's Hostel.
