Mingtown Hiker Youth Hostel
Ranked #35 of 353 Specialty Lodging in Shanghai
Reviewed February 27, 2009

15 mins walking distance from the Bund and Nanjing East Road subway station. Near eateries and convenience shops. Clean and in a safe area. Their 8 bedded dorm was 40 yuan per night for member and 45 yuan for non-member. Bathroom & toilet in room. No toiletries, no window looking out. Comfortable mattress and warm quilts, important for winter. Friendly service.

Reviewed April 30, 2008

I stayed here twice during my stay in China, saying in a twin room.
The hostel is so cheap 200 yuan per night for two that's about £15 GBP.
It was very clean, modern beds, bathrooms had showers and towels provided. No toiletries but you wouldn't expect them for the price.
It was much more like a hotel than a hostel. Rooms are lockable.
Didn't try their food but it looked fine, we bought from the many street sellers or small "cafe's" nearby.
It's really close to Nanjing Lu and the Bund; Old Shanghai centre is also easily walkable.
After a hard day on your feet there is a great foot massage place a few doors down to the left of the hostel - recommended.
This is the first time I have ever stayed in a Youth Hostel, and even as a youth of 50 plus I would definately stay here again.
Make sure you give a telephone number when you book as they get very busy and may contact you to double check that you are still coming.
I booked through www.hostelbookers.com
