If Shanghai is my favorite city, Mingtown Etour Hostel is also my favorite hostel! My friend and I went backpacking to Shanghai and booked there online. There was a mistake, when we arrived there, the receptionist said that the room we booked is unavailable because...More
Very good location, a little hard to find at first, but once you see the Big etour sign as the road breaks right, its tucked in an alley to the left.
Right in the middle of the action, next to very expensive hotels, why bother...More
No doubt location is good with cheap local eateries and foot massages round the corner. Near to Line 2 People's Square Metro.

Amazing location and atmosphere for the price! I stayed here for three nights in a double room by myself (I had to pay for two people) and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was clean and had a great atmosphere (charming choices in the hallways, rooms,...More
Aside from the fact that it is a bit pricy for a youth hostel (265 RMB for a double room with shared bathroom), the place is great. The setup is fantastic with great decor. The room was very clean and had everything necessary. Weary of...More

People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and
work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.

I'm sorry, I lived there for seven months, and somehow I don't remember whether it's 11:00pm or 1:00am, but it's somewhere in that window. After hours, there's a security guard who sleeps at the desk (always one of several males), but he doesn't speak English, and the hostel staff have told me that one of the night guards (if not more than one of them) doesn't even speak particularly proper Mandarin. You can come and go at the hostel at any hour, as the guard is always there to let you in, but check-in is computerized and involves registering your passport data with the local police, so you'd want to arrive on at least that first night prior to the evening hours. Try calling them to ask what to do about late-night arrivals; most of the front desk staff speak reasonably good English. Good luck!
