I spent 2 days, one night here. Loved the facilities. Ate breakfast in the restaurant which was pretty good. The bar, common areas and overall environment was very pleasant and well decorated and really a great vibe. Great environment to meet travelers. Very scenic indoors but my room was super moldy. The receptionist mentioned the first floor rooms tend to... More

As a first time solo traveller, this hostel did nothing in the likes of scaring me off unlike the stories I read on the internet of hostels in Shanghai pre-arrival. The first thing that settled my nerves was the energy at this place, so sincere and full of passion throughout both the guests and the workers. In my first hour... More

Pros Great location Bathroom always clean Good price Cons 1.Bed mattress needs to be replaced - you can feel the springs when you lie on it. 2. Although the bed linen was fresh, it didn't feel clean - needs to be upgraded. 3. The rooms could do with a coat of paint. 4. If it's raining, you get wet walking... More

I stayed in a 6-person dorm room. The bed was extremely lumpy and worn down, you can feel the springs of the mattress. The cafe area is very nice and pretty, but the only bad part about it was that you cannot bring food to eat inside the nice cafe. There are tables outside of the cafe where you can... More

As the other reviews have been saying, the location for this hostel is hard to beat. It is close enough to Nanjing Lu and People's Square you are right in the thick of it, but not so close it doesn't still feel like a chill place to hang out. The bar area was nice, but it was a bit on... More

I spent three very pleasant days at this youth hostel. This was the last place I stayed at during my stay in China, and having quite a bit of work to do I spent most of my three days around the hostel café/bar. The bar area is set in the out on two levels, with glass walls letting lots of... More

This hostel is placed perfectly : so close to Nanjing Road, but still in a small "normal" street. And the Young staff's English level is excellent, and they were so nice to help us finding accomodation in the next cities when we were screwed because of the Labor Day holidays. Also, the rooms are nice and clean, and all in... More

Mingtown E Tour Hostel was an okay place to stay. Excellent location. The staff were nice with reasonable English. Unfortunately our bed (403) did not come with a mattress and even after asking for one, staff failed to put one on the bed. Reason for this was because they didn't have a mattress that fit the bed? So instead we... More

My husband and I stayed in the Shanghai - Mingtown Etour YH for 7 nights in a single room and loved it. The location is superb. It is at the corner of Huangpi Rd and the JW Marriott Hotel, 5 minutes walk from the People Square subway station. The room was clean and spacious. The atmosphere was lovely; although the... More
