I loved my stay in Mingtown Etour Youth Hostel in May 15. You can enjoy a beer on the terrace. Dormitory are pretty clean & you have wifi pretty much everywhere. Location is pretty convenient as well.

Location is perfect, right by People's Park (hardly Central Park NY - something lacking somehow - yet a great viewing greenish lung for some awesome skyscrapers.) You can walk to The Bund easily within half an hour; French Concession easy reach t'other direction. Metro connection to either normal trains (3 stops) or high speed - though further out, south -...

This Hostel was absolutely great. The rooms were clean, beds were OK, and the atmosphere in the hostel was wonderful. The location is perfect, it's located very central. Staff is helpful, nothing bad to say. I would definitely go again if I visit Shanghai again.

Great location, nice courtyard, good people, clean room, but the only one thing bothered me is the thin mattress of the bed. It is uncomfortable until I put another blanket on the top. However, I still recommend it. By the way, I live in the twin room with the private bathroom.

The location right off of People's Square couldn't be better. We weren't more than about 3 Metro stops away from anywhere we wanted to go. The hostel's courtyard is peaceful and pretty. The staff were quite helpful when we were there: one woman even called around to different theaters for us to see if they had tickets. Our double room... More

This hostel has a good location, just a short, pleasant walk from the People's Square subway station. Very convenient to a lot of sights and restaurant areas. Beds in the dorm was OK. Bathrooms were OK as well, rather inconvenient as it is located outside the room and used by a lot of guests. The laundry facilities were a godsend.... More

Mingtown Etour Youth Hostel is definitely a perfect place to stay in Shanghai. Located right next to people square (probably the best location you can get in Shanghai), and 5 minutes walk from the metro station, its a walking distance to all kinds of restaurants, cafes, the peoples park, and Nanjing road. You can also walk 30 minutes to the... More

The location of this hostel is absolutely perfect, right on People's Square and just a metro ride away from everything you need. The rooms were nice and the actual hostel itself is very pretty; theres a nice outdoor space, kitchen area and an onsite bar/restaurant. There are local shops nearby for all your essentials. The loos did have a tendancy... More

The hostel is perfectly located, walking distance from everything in central Shanghai. We arrived at 1:30am and the after-hours check-in was seamless. Only flaw was that there wasn't that much of an atmosphere of people hanging out etc, which was surprising because the hostel has amazing common spaces! Might be because a lot of the common spaces are outside and... More

First, I didn't have high expectation while booking this hostel. But apparently, I am wrong. The hostel is quite cute. It is near People Square. So basically it is close to the Bund and City God Temple. There a lot of dining places around, but unfortunately I don't have enough time to try them. The hostel decoration is, somehow, well,...
