I had a wonderful stay at this hostel. I met a couple of interesting people. The bathroom was super clean and I like the fact that one bathroom is shared per dorm. The staffs were helpful and friendly. The location of this hostel is strategic and I felt safe roaming around at night at that area.
We stayed in a private double room, it was quite nice. It had a soft comfy bed, a clean and modern bathroom, and even a couch/lounge area. The hostel even has an elevator! It is located quite close to a metro station for easy access to the rest of the city, and there is quite a lively street nearby for evening walks. You are relatively close to the Bund, but it is still a little bit of a walk.
The location is perfect but the hostel has a lot of problems, it smells really bad on the Floors and the Internet is a *! The staff don't help you with nothing but if you want a hostel just for sleeping is perfect!
We stayed in a double twin room and it was very clean and spacious. Probably the biggest and cleanest room I have ever stayed at a hostel. But the wifi sucked at our floor (4/F) and it was quite irritating, and the elevator looked shabby and was kind of scary. Anyway, I enjoyed my stay there. would recommend it to friends.
I only stayed one night in a double room, which was very nice and clean. Good value for money and great central location.
thank you for a great stay! really helpful staff and great facilities
I loved the location and value for money. The wifi connection was a bit temperamental, but that sort of comes with the territory.
While having an enormous bathroom with separate toilet/shower was nice, I would have rather had a decent sized room. The 3 sets of bunk beds were practically touching each other and there was no room to maneuver around the room. The location was great, very close to the metro and lots of food options nearby. The food was decent and somewhat reasonably priced for western food but I think you can do better elsewhere.
I think the people have. Changed , room service are doing real job , but other facilities like toilets and kitchen , thge word dirty is not enough ,,, responsibilities coz management don't keep an eye on many guestrs negative behaviour . you skill the * every where in the hostel specially the area near by the kichen . I'm writing myt preview , hope they take my comment positively and maintain the negative issues . I used to like that place but something wrong happens , left the place
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.
Very good quality of the staff and also the facilities. The room were super clean and new and I appreciated the cleanliness in the bathroom! I would just recommend to find a better place for the left luggage. I didn´t feel really comfortable leaving it at the reception, I would prefer a separate room for that. Overall rating would be 9 out of 10!!

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.

the location is very good. Also the atmosphere is good.
I had a really good time in this hostel. Especially the atmosphere and staff I really. Same minded happy walking around which is created by good helpfull staff. Together with the perfect location I recommend to it everyone.
Dorms could be cleaner if shoes were not allowed into the rooms.
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!
Nice hostel, in a good area, bar served good food and reasonably priced, rooms were nice however marked down because there was a really terrible smell right outside our room and despite telling the staff many times they just put an incense stick outside our door which did not get rid of the smell. Other than that staff were actually very helpful.
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
