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.

Really nice hostel, the staff are very friendly and helpful. It's a great location, very central and close to the metro, shopping area, food etc. The hostel is very clean and fresh. The only negative thing I have to say about this hostel is that there is no soap on the toilets, and toilet paper only in a few of... More

The hostel is a couple of minutes walk from the metro, about a 10 minute walk to the Bund and is just off East Nanjing road, so the location is perfect. The hostel itself is pretty good - the staff were helpful and the rooms and bathrooms were fine. The Wifi wasn't great. I'd recommend this hostel to anyone staying... More

Perfect location, 3-minute walk from a metro station, 10-minute walk to the Bund. Rooms were good, not big but clean and the shared bathrooms were clean. Staff staff's service is POOR! overall, I would stay there again!!

The accommodation is convenient, comfortable and clean. The location is excellent for walking about downtown with Nanjing walking street, People's Park and the Bund within strolling distance. Many foreign and Chinese guests. Very good English spoken.

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.
