This is a really nice, clean and conveniently located hostel. It is minutes away to Nanjing Road and the Bund and 5 minutes from the Metro. The rooms were in excellent condition, so everything is one big thumbs up! However, the wifi signal in the room was problematic and the service was horrible. The staff just made everything you asked... More

The only really great thing about this hostel is the location. This couldnt be better! Nice and central. Further on, the rooms were fine. Beds are good, aircon is nice. Bathrooms are clean. Lockers available. And on the fifth floor we had wifi in the room. However... The staff is really unfriendly and not helpful at all. * do you... More

Very chic youth hostel, clean, and just one minute walk from Nanjing East road subway station. Restaurants and Shopping places are just steps away. The Bund, People Square are also within walking distance. The hostel has a very cute yet cool cafe at downstair for you to relax a bit and plan your next trip.

Location: Excellent, right in the middle of the city, 5 minutes away from a metro, street food all around the block, decent restaurants around, in close proximity of shopping areas/touristy spots Atmosphere: It was alright.. the reception area is more like a restaurant setting, making it a bit more difficult to mingle with others, but there was still a cool...

It's located near the infamous Nanjing Road, just 5 minutes walk. The room size is okay for 6 people, and there is WiFi inside the room. From the entrance door there is a space for outside sink and separate toilet and bathroom, then there is another door to the beds. There is even an outside huge cozy bathroom in case... More

Got there after asking a friend for recommendation. I went online to hostelworld.com but it said that it's all fully booked, so I just stopped by and asked if they have any spare beds and they did - so don't rely only on hostelworld if your'e nearby. Pros: Clean bathroom and shower, price, great wifi availability in every floor, free... More

The hostel is close to everything, Nanjing Road, People's Square, The Bund, Shanghai Museum and the subway station. The mix dorm is ample enough for 3 bunk beds and very clean. Public bathroom booth is a bit narrow and I had nowhere to put my change clothes. Hallway is narrow, too. You can hear people walking by and talking all... More

We traveled to Shanghai with no hostel reservations, on a Chinese holiday, but we were able to find a private room for three nights at Mingtown. We arrived and were able to communicate with the staff, who gave us friendly and helpful service. The room was more than what we expected. The beds were big, there was a rack to... More

I was in Shanghai recently with my partner and we just needed a place to sleep for one night. We really wanted to save money, and this hostel was great for us. We booked a room with a double bed for 200 RMB. It wasn't the fanciest room, but it was clean, included a shower, and even had a TV.... More

The hostel is in an excellent location just a couple of minutes walk from East Nanjing Road subway exit 1. The rooms were a bit grubby but not the worst I’ve seen. The bed sheets were clean but the mattress itself was pretty stained (best to look away when putting your sheets on!) and the walls in the dorm had... More
