The Mingtown Etour Youth Hostel is located in the metropolitan city in China — Shanghai! It's located in the center of the city, right in the People's Square area.

The entire hostel is built in old-fashioned Shanghai residential style, and the flat construction design distinguishes it from skyscraper hotels. It has its own central courtyard as an open area for guest activities. The building's traditional brick suits the surroundings well, and opens directly onto the cultural attractions of one of Shanghai's Nong Tang (old-style narrow alleys).

The hostel holds 20 standard rooms and over 70 bunk beds. Onsite facilities include a restaurant, bar, self-service laundry, common area, as well as a mini pool. The young staff members speak moderate English, and are familiar with tourism points of interest and travel information. The hostel is also pleased to help guests with making local travel arrangements and reservations of hostels.

An abundance of famous sightseeing attractions are within walking distance. Within 10 minutes walk, you can reach the Nanjing Road pedestrian shopping district, People's Square, Shanghai Museum, the office building of Shangai municipal Goverment, People's Park, Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art (Shanghai MOCA), Madame Tussaud's Wax museum and Grand Theater. Within 30 minutes, you can visit the Xin Tian Di, the site of First Nantional Congress of Chinese Communist Party and the Bund. On special occasions, you can even watch fireworks and national holiday ceremonies right from the hostel terrace!

There are 3 types of room in the hostel. Dorm room, double room(shared bathroom) and twin beds private room (private bathroom).

All rooms are equipped with air conditioning and with windows. The bathroom is 24 hour hot supply.

All rooms are covered with wifi, and password is mingtown. The user authentication is needed after connecting to the wifi.

The room number is the account name, such as 306A, and the last six digest or numbers of the passport number is the password to the user authentication.

The reception has a mini-shop which sales English maps, toiletries, drinks, snacks and postcards. (Because the post office is 10 meters away, we don’t sale postage stamps.)

The guests also can borrow the slippers, towels, locks, plug adapter and electric mosquito repellent heater (summer only) from the reception, and the reception provide free toilet paper too. There is also a pay telephone at the reception which can make domestic and international phone calls.

The self service kitchen has a microwave oven, an electric kettle and refrigerators.

We have a laundry area on the terrace. The guests can do the laundry in the sink or by the washing machines. They can get the washing dry by hanging them out or by the dryer machine.

The washing machine and the dryer machine are coins operating machines. They need CNY 8.00 to start. The washing machine needs 45 min and the dryer machine needs 90 min to finish the whole process.

There is also a bar/café/restaurant in the hostel which provides breakfast, pasta, pizza, fried rice… and handmade coffee with good quality and decent prices. The guests can have a discount with 20% off with the room key in the bar.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

dont leave anything in the safety deposit box. They rifle through them and steal anything that is not specifically written on the receipt ; MONEY. Somebody there is a thief and the manager refuses to accept it. Perhaps it is he who is the thief.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This is ideally located near People's Square subway and the bar area and rooms/showers etc were smart and clean. The bar drinks and food were quite expensive and the one girl on reception looked rather hectic and was not so friendly. They were not able to book tickets for our onward train or give us much travel information. However, the hostel itself was very nice.
