    Had an awesome stay in their private room. Really big, very clean, with a pretty nice bathroom! Only issue was that the wifi didn't work very well outside of the lobby while we were there. Location was perfect! Thanks for the awesome stay!

    This hostel is a great place to experience Shanghai. I would recommend it highly. the only bad thing was the front desk staff were very unhelpful, but to be honest I have experienced this type of bad customer service almost everywhere in China, so I cannot really mark them down for that.

    Great location, clean beds, friendly staff. The only downside was the state of the kitchen! But for those who are thinking to stay max couple of days it’s perfect

    We were able to check in early due which was helpful. The staff weren’t very friendly. We had a private room with two single beds, it was a decent size and clean. Good location, near subway.

    This hostel is okay for just one night. The room was very small and cramped and if you're on the fifth floor, you'll have to carry your luggage up from the fourth floor because the elevator doesn't go to the fifth floor. It also stops running during the night and into the early hours so I had to carry my bags down five flights of stairs to check out in the morning.

    This hostel is fine, but it definitely shouldn’t be rated as high as it is. Pros: space to hang out at meet people downstairs, close to tourist sights. Cons: a little dirty, some of the staff don’t speak English, no free maps or tour recommendations, elevator is closed at night, bed is hard.

    The staff are very aloof and give the impression that talking to you is a chore. That gave me a bad impression from the start which is never helpful. Besides that everything was just okay, the toilet was a bit dirty and the room is what you expect for the price.

Mingtown Nanjing Road Youth Hostel says

We're in the absolute centre of Shanghai. In fact, I think we have a perfect location - we're just a few steps away from Nanjing road and two minutes' walk from the metro station. We're also situated perfectly for you to experience Shanghai's unforgettable nightlife.
Here you can enjoy our nice, cheap breakfast and beers as well as coffee and tea. We really want to make you feel like you're staying at your friend's place. We will be waiting for you with welcoming drinks and open arms! Ma Zi, Owner
