We stayed in this hostel the first night we arrived to China and were very unhappy. There waas only one room available and it was horrible! The walls were coverd in moulds and the air in the room was undescribably bad! As we arrived late...More
The staff was very friendly and helpful, if a little slow at times when they were busy. Their English wasn't superb, but it was passable. I had a double bed room that was private with a bath, and it was nice. The cafe/bar area had...More
Everything here was great. Its a really trendy place. Even in the middle of winter we enjoyed sitting outside beside the fish pond. The restaurant food and drink is great but a little expensive. Beautiful shared bathroom and good rooms - if a little small....More
We had booked a room for 2 nights originally, however we had contacted the hostel more than 48 hours in advance about changing plans, and we had to cut our stay down to 1 night. Even though we had discussed this with staff, they still...More
I stayed at Mingtown Hiker during my previous trip so I thought I'd try the People Square branch on my next one. Mingtown E-tour is located just outside a very narrow alley (called a longtang) and is really right beside Tomorrow Square. The hostel itself...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... More
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!
