Good position and the room was spacious and clean. Staff very polite but a bit cold, as Chinese cannot be considered properly "friendly". The only big downside is that the wifi didn't work at all in my room.

Location was really perfect, couldn't be better, 2 minute walk from the metro, 10 minute walk to the bund, just perfect. The rooms were good, not really big but very clean and soft beds. The shared bathrooms were really clean. The staff was really Chinese, because they didn't show much initiative when you asked them something.

This was a very nice hostel with an excellent location. The Staff is also very friendly. The only thing is that our bathroom had a bad smell.

Excellent location, free security due to police station on the opposite street, halal muslim restaurant within 100m, metro subway within 100m, will return if i am visiting Shanghai in future.

I have stayed four nights in twin room. I asked to change bed sheets after two nights. They said it is not possible because they change sheets after 3 nights. After 3 nights I stayed, they never changed my sheets at all. Besides that they provide awful service. I regret that I choosed that hostel. I feel sorry to my company. I will never go back that hostel again. Also it was not that cheap. Dark room, no TV, thin wall. Who said it is more like hotel? I was completely deceived.

Easy to find. Good bed. Good size bedrooms. Good size lockers. A bit pricey though.

The hostel itself is really nice. The staff, however is not super friendly. There were some staff members that are cool and try to help, but the majority just get their job done. It can be inconvenient when you need information about the city and cool places to go, because they aren't much help. The wifi is not reliable. But the location and cleanliness are really great.

Ok place, didn't really spend much time in the limited social space as I was visiting friends. reception staff efficient but not particularly friendly or personable - when leaving the girl did not pause her phone call once! private room nice, good bed and hot shower. Coming in very late at night no one at door to stop randoms walking in off street, no key card in use on door... Great location minutes from line 2, very easy to find.

Some cutlery in the break room on the second floor would be nice. Guests can prepare food but there are no utensils and that makes it awfully hard to cook and eat anything. Very central location and the staff were friendly. WiFi on the third floor needs fixing. Nice facilities overall.

- this is the 3rd time I stay at Mingtown hostel in Nanjing Rd. the location of the place is very good, and perfect if you plan to walk around the city. Totally recommend this place

Really positively impressed by the hostel. Good atmosphere, beautiful room (i was in private double) , really good selection of breakfasts and meals at a good price and the location is unbeatable. They should clean a little bit more the lobby and the ladders (they smell a little bit) and the wifi signal is average but considering the price of the rooms i would definitely suggest this hostel to somebody else.

Good hostel overall but not the friendliest staff! Location is the winner.

Good: I really liked my stay here. The way the hostel is laid out was great! The rooms were very clean and beds were comfortable. The common areas were good and the cafe had good food. Bad: The internet was very bad and did not work most of the time. The staff were friendly but had difficulties at time with communication. There was no proper locker storage but the system in place seemed to work okay.

This hostel is all about its location - it is just a few steps to Nanjing Road and within walking distance to Shanghai's most famous attractions. I booked a deluxe double room and a regular double room. Both of them were ok for hostel standards, but the smell was unbearable. The room was super stinky. The breakfast also took ages to be ready, but I can understand because maybe the staff was busy doing other things.

Overall a great place to stay. The staff were helpful and friendly. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm which was good but a bit on the small side, it was difficult for more than one person to move around at once. The hostel was really clean with good facilities. It is close to the metro and there are loads of small restaurants and food stalls nearby. I would stay here again.

The hostel was great and clean, the only thing was that there was one staff member who was really unfriendly. She was very short and rude. Other than that the hostel was great and PERFECT location!

The hostel is conveniently located near Nanjing East Road. I stayed in a twin room and it was nice and clean.
