Roon had nice furniture, mattress was quite hard. Bathroom was fine. Location is great. However it was very noisy during our stay! There is some kind of workshop on the 4th floor that is operated 24/7. So even at night in our room on the 3rd floor (left side) it was quite loud. Ask for a room somewhere else...

The location is good and very well communicated. The double room was comfortable but the windows were very bad, so we could hear all the noise from the exterior. It has a shared kitchen, but is poorly equipped and more dedicated to staff use than guests.

Really nice hostel, the staff are very friendly and helpful. It's a great location, very central and close to the metro, shopping area, food etc. The hostel is very clean and fresh. The only negative thing I have to say about this hostel is that there is no soap on the toilets, and toilet paper only in a few of... More

The hostel is a couple of minutes walk from the metro, about a 10 minute walk to the Bund and is just off East Nanjing road, so the location is perfect. The hostel itself is pretty good - the staff were helpful and the rooms and bathrooms were fine. The Wifi wasn't great. I'd recommend this hostel to anyone staying... More

Perfect location, 3-minute walk from a metro station, 10-minute walk to the Bund. Rooms were good, not big but clean and the shared bathrooms were clean. Staff staff's service is POOR! overall, I would stay there again!!

The accommodation is convenient, comfortable and clean. The location is excellent for walking about downtown with Nanjing walking street, People's Park and the Bund within strolling distance. Many foreign and Chinese guests. Very good English spoken.

The hostal is 1 minute walking from East Nanjing Rd metro station and 15 min walking for the Bund. The dorms are cozy and clean. I read here that the staff did not let you use the aircon but we had no such problem, actually our aircon was not working and one of the staff came immediately to solve the... More

The best part about YHA Mingtown Nanjing Rd is its convenient location, just a 2 minute walk from the main artery of East Nanjing Road, and 15 minutes walk to the Bund. However, the staff's service is poor. I booked a twin bedroom online from the YHA site, only to be told that it was a family room with 2... More

We booked this hostel for 3 nights having read the decent reviews. We arrived at 1pm and had to wait 30 mins before someone would speak to us as they were 'busy'. We were told our rooms would not have clean sheets until after 4:30pm. We checked in anyway and decided to clean the room ourselves and change the sheets... More

Staying in People’s Square

Neighborhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
