This hostel made our stay super comfortable. We loved almost everything about it - perfect location, awesome & spacious room (we took twin room 406 - it has a window and is very good), clean and had very good food downstairs. The cons - bad wifi, not so friendly staff, and the bed quality was not great. All in all,... More

We have been at the hostel a week while we were looking for an apartment in Shanghai and the place is amazing. The small street and the place contrast with the crowded and noisy streets. Staff at the reception and at the bar speak english (very useful if you do not speak chinese) and are really nice people. The place... More

This is the third Mingtown Hostel Ive stayed in, and it lived up to my expectations. It's got a lovely little cafe/dining/lounge are downstairs at the entrance. All the Mingtowns seem to go in for this kind of cottagey decoration with "antique" Chinese touches and big ceramic vases of flowers. It's really charming and doesn't feel like you're in a... More

Absolutely excellent location - unbeatable- very central - just what you need because getting around everywhere in Shanghai with all the crowds can be really stressful. Lots of restaurants near by. Very close to the metro stop which takes you straight to the airport. The room was clean and like a hotel - with a tv and airconditioning and nice... More

We stayed in a private double room for 5 nights. Pros: Large, clean room TV, air con and wifi all worked well Really good location - 1 minute walk from East Nanjing Rd & Metro stop, quite a few shops/supermarkets nearby (with 5RMB bottles of Tsingtao, everyone loves a cheap beer!), easy to find with directions given by hostel Staff...

Nothing flash but comfortable and very good location for checking out the sites. Room was bigger and better than expected (own dorm), staff were great and the bar / food well priced. Let's be honest, you're not staying there for the amenities, you're there to see the surrounds, so if you just need a bed and a little comfort, I'd... More

Location was amazing for me, right of the main drag and took no time to get anywhere but really - this place smelt funky. Ground floor always had a wiff of animal facies, and the room had a scent too it ... Wifi is horrendous, just give up now. Bed was OK and staff rather unfriendly but the shower was... More

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.

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.
