Me and my friends spent a total of 7 nights at Le Tour, and even though there are a couple of downsides to the place, I would recommend it to other people. The biggest downsides are the breakfast menu, the lack of wi-fi in the rooms, and the room temperatures wasn't that great, due to lack of isolation, like you would expect in southern China. The beds could be softer, but were still the softest ones we experienced in China. On the plus side, there are big common areas with wi-fi, and pool and ping pong tables, where we met some friendly people to talk to. There's also a bar on the top floor, with the option to sit outside. The staff is generally friendly and helpful, and the location isn't too bad, with a 15 minute walk to Jing'an Temple metro station, and lots of shops and restaurants in the area. I highly recommend eating at Wagas or Pure and Whole, which are both only a 2-3 minute walk away.

Shanghai Exhibition Centre, Paramount Entertainment and former French Concession are all within walking distance. 5-minute's walk from the subway Line 7 - ChangPing Road Station, which leads directly to Shanghai EXPO Park.Nearby Nanjing West Road is a busy main road with offices, shops, restaurants and pubs. However the hostel is set back in a quiet residential side street away from the hustle and bustle. The building itself was built in the 1930s and is a former Towel Factory that used to supply towels to almost every family in China. When renovating the building we tried to salvage and re-use as much as we could from the old building – much of the furniture, flooring and panelling that you see in our guest rooms and common areas are made from the original timber.We accepts ISIC, IYTC, ITIC, HI Hostel card, Hostelworld VIP Card, … as our membership cards. We can offer accommodation in double rooms, twin rooms, apartment rooms and shared single-sex dormitories.
