The Mingtown Etour Youth Hostel holds 20 standard rooms and over one hundred bunk beds. Onsite facilities include a full service restaurant, bar, self-service laundry, common area internet terminals, local and long distance telephone service in each room, as well as a business center.The whole hostel is built in old-fashioned Shanghai residential style, and the flat construction design distinguishes it from skyscraper hotels. It has its own central courtyard as an open area for guest activities. The building's traditional brick façade suits the surroundings well, and opens directly onto the cultural attractions of one of Shanghai's Nong Tong (old-style narrow streets). An abundance of famous sightseeing attractions are within walking distance. Within five minutes walk, you can reach the Nanjing Road pedestrian shopping district, the Shanghai Museum, Shanghai Development Center, City Hall, and Grand Theater. Within 25 minutes, you can visit the Yuyuan Garden, The Bund, and the Temple of Culture. On special occasions, you can even watch fireworks and national holiday ceremonies right from the hostel balcony! if you've got a IYHF membership card,you will receive a discount. Please remember to bring passport with you when you come here. Please inform us your new arrival time by phone if you arrive late, or else your booking would be cancelled automatically. Our staff members speak moderate English, and are familiar with tourism points of interest and travel information. The hostel is also pleased to help guests with making travel arrangements and reservations.Waiting for your visiting!
