The hostel was really clean, I loved the shower (strong water pressure and hot!). The staff was very friendly and helped us with all our questions. The bar in the 5th floor is really nice (probably in summer even better!). Downstaires there is a good restaurant if you are tired from the day. The wifi ist good and stable. Very good location, you can walk to most of the imported spots or take the nearby subway....Just loved it!

Very nice building/rooms/athmosphere. The location is nice, but quite a long way from the subway station, if you have a lot of luggage, on the outskirts of the French Consession.

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.

I really liked the hostel. Although it is highly recommended to install some more windows or at least air refreshing tools. Besides the not-so-fresh-air the hostel is nice, well-located, the staff is really helpful and the wifi works well.

The reception staff is not really friendly. Part of the hostel is under refurnish and there is smell of solvent everywhere. They trying to charge you up to 3% extra money if you pay with debit or credit card because of the bank commission, that's ridiculous... Just trying to get extra% profit Around the hostel there are several hotels where you can book a better room for a lower price and no problem to pay by cards
