Liked: The location was excellent! So close to the bund, peoples square and a 1 minute walk to the MTR station.

Disliked: There was no atmosphere in the bar area but I think that's because it's not peak season.

Liked: It is very accessible to 'should' visits in Shanghai. The staff is very accomodating and would surely be missed. From Pudong Airport: 1. Take line 10 going to East Nanjing.. you will be asked to change coach.. but still you have to go down at East Nanjing.. from east nanjing station.. it's just a 3-5 minute walk to Mingtown .. 2. If you take a cab.. just ask the taxi driver to take you at Nanjing.. that's the closest landmark that they know.. it's around 150-250 RMB.. if you take the airport taxi.. they will charge you 450 RMB..

Disliked: Internet connection does not work sometimes. Behind the hostel is the market which one should be careful when making transactions.

Liked: The staff was very friendly and the rooms really clean. The hostel is right in the city centre, so there was no trouble going around. We stayed only for a night but would have liked to spend a week.

Disliked: There was a slightly unpleasant smell in the room when we checked in but it was not that bad.

Liked: Such excellent location! Right off Nanjing Rd, 5 min from the subway, you can get anywhere from here! Our rooms were very nice, there's a fun little mini night-market right on the street corner with some really good food. the staf was very helpful and the internet worked great. Stay here!!

Disliked: The directions to get to the hostel were a little off. If you get off the subway at the Nanjing east station and go out exit no 1 you turn right onto nanjing rd and then at the first street you see you go right again (not left) and then the first street is tianjing, and that's where you go left and the hostel is on the right side of the street.
