    Very good experience, clean rooms and great location. Only slight issue was there was a 100 RMB deposit that I didn't know about and it was refunded to me in cash, which is inconvenient for people like me who use wechat/alipay and don't want cash

    Perfect location in downtown shanghai. Felt secure and clean in the hostel. Not much of an atmosphere in the common spaces but that’s also not to expected since shanghai is not really a backpackers destination.

    The best thing about the hostel was its location. It is situated very close to all the central Shanghai attractions. It is incredibly close to one of the main metro lines, from where every corner of the city can be reached. The room was very comfortable and quiet with good WiFi. Facilities were good and clean. The room would, however, benefit from a bigger general revamp. The staff speak very good English. Overall, this hostel suited us very well and we liked our stay in it.

    Good location and rooms were fine, although the showers were a bit grimy. Staff was neither friendly nor unfriendly, just got the job done. Overall you are paying for the location, there are nicer places at equal or lower price points if you are willing to move slightly further from the city center.

    The stay definitely matched the price. Cheap room cheap hospitality. The staff don't take well to foreigners. They aren't friendly nor are they hospitable. I've lived in china 3 years so I know having a language barrier is tough but they spoke good English but still didn't even bother common courtesy. I don't recommend this hostel. Let it be your last option if no other is available.

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
