This is comparitively expensive for a youth hostel, but to be honest it felt more like a hotel in many ways. Reception staff were helpful, room was clean and the place has a game room, movie room and bar. Only a ten minute walk from the subway too. Recommended.

This was our first hostel experience and we were pleasantly surprised. Our double room with ensuite was a good size and very clean. The roof top balcony is a nice spot for a drink and to chat with other guests. Staff here were very helpful and spoke good english, we organised with them to buy our train tickets to Nanjing...

I stayed 4 nights in a female only dorm. The location is amazing, very close to people's square, in a nice street where people sell crickets :) The dorm was big and clean with an air-con, the bathroom was shared between two dorms but there was two showers, which was convenient. You have your own light next to your bed...

Spent 3 nights in a double deluxe room and although the room was small, must say that the room was clean. They forgot to give us towels so had to request them. A bit disappointed in the television programming but were happy to find that we could rent a DVD player for 10RMB/ day and free movies/tv shows to select...

We were really looking forward to our stay here from all the good reviews in both Lonely Planet and on TripAdvisor but were truly disappointed with our choice. Although the location we thought was good, a 10 minute walk from the subway and not far from the French Concession, the price and our overall comfort level was not enough to...

Le Tour is situated down a classically 'shanghainese' winding back street, complete with massage parlor, hanging laundry, stray cats and the Shanghai equivalent of a greasy spoon. In this way it is a fantastic introduction to the city. The local shops, restaurants and food stalls that surround the hostel in all directions offer a great and authentic taste of Shanghai,...

I really wanted to give this hostel the highest possible review. The room was clean and nice. It was cheap, only ~$45 per night. It had a TV and air conditioning. The only real downside was the cockroach that we had to kill in our room. It made us very hesitant to sleep. Someone else that we were traveling with...

This was my first experience staying in a hostel, so to ease myself into the more budget environment my husband and I booked a private room with a private bathroom. The room itself was very standard, small room but enough space for what we needed. The room came with a queen size bed, a small desk with a chair and...

This place is OK for a hostel, but after reading some of the reviews on TripAdvisor, I have to say I was expecting more. The place definitely had a youth hostel atmosphere- accommodations were basic and mostly clean. We had a double private room that had a VERY strong odor, like someone had been chain-smoking in the room just before...

After Beijing, Hangzhou and Xian, this is about the largest hostel we have stayed so far. It is located in a quiet lane off the main road. There are many local cafes in the neighbourhood, and the food are really cheap. Noodles, rice and dumplings places are only a few doors away from one another. There is a Wagas just...

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Le Tour Traveler’s Rest Youth Hostel is located in the downtown area of Shanghai and is just 10 minute’s walk from the Subway (Line 2 and Line 7) (JingAn Temple Station and Airport City Terminal). Shanghai Exhibition Centre, Paramount Entertainment and former French Concession are all within walking distance. 5-minute's walk from the subway Line 7 - ChangPing Road Station, which leads directly to Shanghai EXPO Park.Nearby Nanjing West Road is a busy main road with offices, shops, restaurants and pubs. However the hostel is set back in a quiet residential side street away from the hustle and bustle. The building itself was built in the 1930s and is a former Towel Factory that used to supply towels to almost every family in China. When renovating the building we tried to salvage and re-use as much as we could from the old building – much of the furniture, flooring and panelling that you see in our guest rooms and common areas are made from the original timber.We accepts ISIC, IYTC, ITIC, HI Hostel card, Hostelworld VIP Card, … as our membership cards. We can offer accommodation in double rooms, twin rooms, apartment rooms and shared single-sex dormitories. The hostel offers a lively, vibrant atmosphere and has a Café and Bar, 24 hour access, free internet, bike hire, laundry, luggage lockers, garden, TV/DVD lounge, Table Tennis, Billiards and a quiet reading room. Also, at our reception there is a Travel Center, where customers can book flight and train tickets, as well as tickets for local one day tours and acrobatics shows, and much more besides… ... more   less
