English term or phrase: standby
This old budget stand-by has a great location off Huaihai Zhonglu. The pleasant strains of music practice waft around the campus courtyards, giving the surroundings a civilised air. The snag? It's often fully booked in summer so it's essential to ring ahead or come with a contingency plan.
