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

The location is fantastic and there is a nice, open patio and clean facilities. Breakfast is a little expensive for China (35-45RMB) but just go to one of the many nearby vendors for food instead. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm. There was hot water and the wifi worked but was not fast (this is what you should expect... More

It's located nearby the tourist spots .. Therefore, you don't have to travel far . However the internet connection in the room wasn't stable and strong. Some of the rooms are a bit run down and room 323 got some kind if smell . I'll suggest strongly to do a bit of renovation for the rooms . The staffs are... More
