    Excellent location: it’s just 3-5 minutes walk to metro and 10-15mins to the Bund! There are various eateries for choosing nearby. Facilities are just so so: air-con was out of work. Toilet stuck easily!

    Good facilites for the money payed. Location is great, just 10 minutes walk to the bund and one block near the subway. The room was confortable and the toilet was perfectly clean. Wifi worked great. Staff however wasn't friendly at all. I sometimes felt I was being mocked when I asked them for information.

    The hotel is close to metro station, all the sight seeing places are near to hostel. We could visit all those places without the need of taxi. We had been in Guilin in Sky palace hostel for 5 days. As compared to Sky palace hostel, Mingtown hostel has provided less facilities. But, overall as compared to its location in Shanghai, its very good place also cheaper. The person at the check in counter hardly laughs which I find very amusing. Please ask them to put a smiling face at the counter.

    Nothing Special! The staff were quite rude and seemed annoyed to answer really basic questions like where nearby places to eat are. There was really no social atmosphere at this place and despite having two social areas, they were entirely empty bar one chinese man watching tv shirtless all the time. The location was good and there were good places to eat nearby. It had a dirty feeling to it, especially in the bathrooms.

    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.

    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
