This hostel is really nice, location is amazing, right next to Nanjing Dong Lu, but in the same time not noisy at all. Room was big, with ac, TV.

Great location close to E Nanjing Rd, the Bund and Peoples Square. Right on a Metro stationl Double private room was large and clean, with a good ensuite. Only problem was the noise from 4th floor above us, late at night and early in the morning. Ear plugs fixed that! Staff were excellent with booking taxis and writing things in chinese for us. Cafe was reasonably priced and made good coffee.

This was my second stay at Mingtown Nanjing Road. The location can't be beat! I wish the wifi was a bit better. I couldn't connect anywhere but in the lobby. The staff is always friendly and helpful. It can be noisy on busy weekends but I will stay there again on my next trip to Shanghai!

Well located, quite nice staff that could provide with relevant information, good coffee! and breakfast ok. Room ok, bed not cleaned every day, quite a strong smell coming from the shower/canalization

Under construction, but the place seemed like it had a lot of promise. Some of the staff seemed a bit awkward interacting with the guests.

They were renovating during my stay. Stayed in a 6-bed dorm, it's was pretty cramped but the location can't be beat. A 2 minute walk to E Nanjing Road and to the nearest subway. Can literally see the malls from my window. Staff were pleasant. WiFi was really on and off - it was really bad in my room but they do offer connections on every floor.

Really located in the most prime area of town, few yards away from the metro station at Nanjing road. Comfortable and Clean rooms. The staff is very cheerful and ready to help.

Excellent location, good price, average staff, bad WiFi signal. The baths and the kitchen were nice, but the bunk room I stayed in was too small for six people and we kept bumping into each other.

I came in really late BC my flight was delayed. There was someone up waiting for me with my room key when I arrived and I paid in the morning. Good service. Clean rooms. Good location.

You really can't find a better location. So close to Nanjing road and the metro. The directions should mention that the street signs can be obscured by banners. I walked right passed the first turn but eventually found it. The staff is friendly. They let me leave my bags while I hunted down an ATM for my bank. The private rooms are nice. I can't comment too much on the social scene since I am only interested in a good night's sleep before heading out to meet friends.

There was a bad smell at the lobby....burning sticks to cover the smell just made it worse!! The location was excellent! All in all, it was good. I would recommend it.

Our twin bed room was clean when we arrived and well equipped. Looks almost like a hotel and you get clean towels every day if you wish so. Unfortunately, the house keeping didn't clean the room at all during our 4 nights stay. We complained about that after 2 days at the reception but they didn't do anything. Furthermore there was a strange smell in the bathroom everyday, especially after having taken the shower. Nevertheless, still can recommend that hostel because of the perfect location!

I was surprised to have to pay the key deposit, since I'd never needed one before and nothing was mentioned about this on the HW profile nor in the personal e-mail after I paid the deposit. Apart from that, it had everything I needed in a hostel, locker with key, comfy bed & blankets, shower / bathroom, quiet at night.

我住在南京路國際青年旅社。 可是服務員真的不親切。 如果我有時間,一定不住在這裡。 謝謝你。
