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.

- 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: 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!

location is nice, within 5 minutes to reach nanjing road, plus near the metro station. Cleanliness is ok, a bit improvement in toilet is better. the only problem is cant connect via wifi, also some noise from the air conditioner

Best hostel I have ever stayed at in Shanghai! This was my second time staying there, and I loved it. Too bad, the wifi did not work though. The location is perfect, it is super close to nanjing road and the bund - my favorite spot in Shanghai! Totally would recommend and come again! :)

Rooms were small and cramped, lockers not big enough for larger bags, and little space for them on the floor. Pro Location good near metro and walkable to all major sights.
