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
My partner and I had read about Etour in The Lonely Planet guide before our trip to Shanghai. The location was second to none and we had high hopes for quality, budget accommodation.
Whilst the décor and ambience lived up to expectations, there were some...More
The perfect location - close to the people's square metro, easy to find, main attractions including bund within walking distance. We were staying in a couple room, four of which shared two showers, one toilet and one sink.
Excellent location, on a quiet street right next to the People Square subway station (exit 11). Well-managed hostel, cleaning staff always keeping the place in neat condition. Very nice common area / café / bar / restaurant, serving big breakfast and pretty good coffee. Female...More
Hostel was very cute, a little hard to find on the street, but we did get there after it was dark. Hostel sign is on the side and doesn't stick out onto the street, but is right at the bend in the street. We only...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!
