This was our first hostel experience and we were pleasantly surprised. Our double room with ensuite was a good size and very clean.
The roof top balcony is a nice spot for a drink and to chat with other guests.
Staff here were very helpful and spoke good english, we organised with them to buy our train tickets to Nanjing and also the expo. A small service fee was charged but worth every cent when seeing the chaos at the station.
We had the small breakfast buffet a few times, probably a bit exspensive for a hostel but good for the convenience and the food was nice.
Free wifi assess was good in the louge room and there were also a few modern computers set up.
The hostel is about a 10-15 minute walk from the subway down a busy road then turning left down a small lane.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Le Tour Traveler’s Rest Youth Hostel is located in the downtown area of Shanghai and is just 10 minute’s walk from the Subway (Line 2 and Line 7) (JingAn Temple Station and Airport City Terminal). 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. The hostel offers a lively, vibrant atmosphere and has a Café and Bar, 24 hour access, free internet, bike hire, laundry, luggage lockers, garden, TV/DVD lounge, Table Tennis, Billiards and a quiet reading room.
