About Shanghai City Central Youth Hostel (Utels)

Location:
Although our hostel is a little far from the historical centre of Shanghai, just under 7km. away from People’s Square, we are conveniently located right next to the Caoyang Road metro station, which provides excellent access to navigate the city very easily. The subway is open from 5:35am until 22:43pm, so if late at night you will have to take a taxi to return (around 3 euros). Our guests have commented, “The location of this hostel is not the best, but once you initially find it the journey to and from gets easier!”

Facilities:
7 Internet pc terminals
Wi-fi in lobby & restaurant
Breakfast (in our restaurant & bar from 7:30am to 9:30am)
