The hostels in a charming location and looks beautiful: the bar's quaint but does the job. Unfortunately the food service ends around 10, which can be a bummer for some. We booked into a shared bathroom private room and it was charming and would be...More

Mingtown is well situated, close to the metro and many tourist attractions. The bathrooms are TINY, and often did not have toilet paper. Definitely no hand washing soap at any time. The staff never offered any assistance with getting around or suggestions on what to...More
Wow. Beautiful courtyard and overlooks a kindergarten. We loved this place. Needs a few repairs here and there and some staff members were disinterested. For all the minor complaints people may have of this place, ultimately this is a haven for budget-minded travellers looking to...More
This hostel has a great location - right next to people's square and line 2 train station! Staff can speak English well and it has great facilities including food and drinks throughout the day! Only downside - you have to make your own bed -...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!
