The hostel is a good clean base if you are not wanting the social aspect of a hostel. The staff are lovely despite their, at times poor English. The tours and tips at other hostels are better but the location is good and the bar and common areas handy.


A little on the pricey side, even for Shanghai, but is in a great location not far from the metro for tourist spots and also has lots of cool bars/cafes/resturants nearby. Everything is very clean, although sometimes the toilets were without toilet paper- but that's pretty much my only complaint


The room was really dark.

Very nice, clean hostel stay. The staff were helpful, speak good English help where they can. Not the cheapest place out of them all, but it's a clean and well managed place. Traveling with a group, it is a great place. There is a decent amount of space to chill, and you could meet people if you're proactive. The location is quite good, 10 minute walk from the metro, which is pretty central to Shanghai. Only tough part was getting the top bunk, but aside from that it was all round very good.


I stayed in a private room which was clean and a good size. The room had a fridge which was useful. I found the hostel to be lacking in any atmosphere at all - there was no one in the bar upstairs whilst I was there. There also didn't seem to be any trips etc organised by the hostel. I also found the location, although on an alley off a pleasant tree-lined street to be a bit remote for me - it felt like a bit of a mission to get to the main city attractions esp in the evening.


This was a decent option when the other two youth hostels I stay at in Shanghai were booked. Some of the other reviews complained it is noisy. One of the nights of my stay was, indeed, noisy. The other was very quiet and peaceful. So it really depends on when you stay there.


I'm a frequent guest at this hostel. Pros for this visit: nice roommates, friendly employees, comfortable dorm, fabulous rooftop patio, relaxing atmosphere, quiet yet convenient location away from the more insane parts of Shanghai but still close to many stores and restaurants. Major pro: The upstairs cafe employee cooked me spaghetti late at night, even though the chef had finished working several hours prior to then. Con: temperamental Internet connections. Excellent place overall.


Very nice hostel within a few minutes walk from the subway. The hostel has a large open space for relaxing and meeting other travelers. My favorite part was the rooftop terrace. The morning breakfasts were great after a long night partying in Shanghai.


Very nice hostel, lovely rooms, a little expensive but this to be expected seeing it was the main holidays in China.


I came to the hostel with a couple of my friends and we really enjoyed the stay. The location is very good and near a lot of bars/restaurants, but is a bit of a walk to the next subway station (about 7 mins- which is not too long, but if you go that distance back and forth several times a day it gets a bit annoying). The room was clean, the staff speak very good English and the common area is very big and definitely a good place to meet fellow travellers and hang out. Will definitely recommend.


The whole place is very clean. There is one bathroom per floor but they are kept very clean so I had no problem using them. The restaurant's food is pretty good, but rather expensive. Lots of reasonably priced places to eat nearby though. They have a good collection of books you can borrow from. The rooms are good. Power points and lights and a shelf next to each bed. Not much of an atmosphere. Pool table and ping pong and lots of seats but no real vibe. Bit expensive for what you get though


Great hostel. Cool vibe. Great staff. Perfect place for a stay in Shanghai.


Could do more to facilitate activities for hostel guests like city tours, pub crawls etc. Wifi does not work on the rooftop terrace but works well in the rest of the hostel so that was nice. Drinks are very cheap in the fridge downstairs but pretty expensive on the rooftop terrace, which does not stimulate people drinking and chilling at the hostel.

Very nice hostel located in one of the best spots. quite noisy though (maybe because my room was near the staircase to the roof-bar).


It was ok. Way more expensive than what it should be.


My room was next to a petrol station, so it was a bit noisy if I wanted a lie-in. The walls are a bit thin, so I could hear people coming in early in the morning after a late one. I guess I just like a bit of peace and quiet after a day out!

I've stayed at other hostels in Shanghai, but I keep coming back to Le Tour. It has a nice central location but generally quiet surroundings. What's more, the employees there are fantastic, and it's super clean. The Internet connections were also super fast on this visit, and I had a fabulous lower bunk bed tucked away in a corner dorm. The guests were great this time too. I do, however, miss the breakfast buffet that the hostel used to have. Most of the restaurant items now are expensive.


I wasn't happy with this hostel, there was a group of school children staying there who were very noisy. It didn't come across as a hostel for travelers more as a hostel for schools.


Very cool hangout space with roof top and ping pong table. Definitely nice place to connect to people.
