Liked: This place is very central in Shanghai. Good restaurants are very close. They have a pool table and they sell beer in the bar. There are many beds and easy to longer the stay.

Disliked: There are not much comunity in this place since there are almost no commen area. If you ask in the reception they hand you a faw papers for where everything is. But there is no more service, and they seldom show on a map. Neither do they know the map of Shanghai, which Metro station to go to.There are a lot of places to go, but this hostel does not know how to get you there.

Liked: The location was great and the dorms had a very cute design/atmosphere.City map was available if you asked for it. Hostel staff pretty nice and helpful.

Disliked: The WiFi in our rooms (2nd floor) didn't work so you either had to go to the lobby or the kitchen.

Liked: We stayed at this hostel in a double room for 4 nights. It is located right in the centre of Shanghai, near to the Bund, People's square, fake market... The room and the bathroom (!) were big and clean. So all in all it was really comfortable.

Disliked: No complains :)

Liked: The staff at Mingtown Nanjing Road were so friendly and helpful. Although I speak a little Chinese their level of English made sorting out airport transfers very simple. @allstaff - thank you all so much for your help.

Liked: Well-located in the heart of Huangpu DistrictClean, bright and comfortable roomsClean bathrooms, hot showers

Disliked: The atmosphere is very unpersonal. It feels like staying in a cheap hotel and not like staying in a YHA hostel.The walls and ceiling seem extremely thin, the noise at night from outside and from other rooms was so loud that we could hardly sleep. That made the stay very unpleasant.
