We arrived in Le Tour Travellers after an 18 hour flight to Shanghai from Ireland. It's quite difficult to find so despite arriving in Shanghai at 6.30am we didn't reach the hostel until 10.30am so as you can imagine we were exhausted and just wanted to sleep. We had booked our room online (Not with Tripadvisor) in advance at a...

Le Tour is one of the best budget places to stay in Shanghai . Located 5 minutes walking distance from Nanjing Road`s high-end shopping mall , Jingan Temple and surrounded by dozens of cozy and crowded bars and restaurants for foreigners . Red briks and wooden floors , a superb and quiet terrace and a lot of nice travellers ....

The staff weren't particularly friendly or helpful. I once asked for a close by restaurant recommendation and got looked at like I was stupid. All other times they were awkward or uninterested. The common area is fine but not really inviting. It's located in a smelly alley way, tricky to find. The dorm room was adequate. It's fine to stay...

I stayed at this location in a private room in 2010, then again last weekend in the shared dorm. It is far too overpriced. The shared dorms are 100 RMB per night. Elsewhere in China, including Hong Kong--the most expensive city for real estate in the world--the most you will pay is 70 RMB for a shared dorm. The private...

I stayed for two nights in a 4-girls dorm there. 99RMB per bed per night on Ctrip. The location of this place is quite nice, close to subway and a local neighborhood. Public area is spacious. Only the rooms are relatively small. Surprisingly, during my stay there were some 15 kids staying in the guest house as well. They seem...

Good place to stay, nice and clean rooms. Within walking distance to jining temple (about 15 mins) and metro (line 2). staff friendly. Nice bar on rooftop where you can eat and have a drink. The hostel was quiet when we were there which was nice.

Very clean and conveniently located hostel. It is also usually quite busy which means there are plenty of other travelers to hang out with. Also quite cheap by overseas standards. The only flaw was the wifi doesn't extend to in-room but this is quite common in China and at least the wifi available was useable at most times. 5 stars.

I lost my shoes in the room, and the girls in reception just said "We dont know, we didn't take it." They just ignored me, pretended I wasn't standing in front of them. the way they talked and attitude were rude.

The best thing about this hostel is its location. Situated within easy walking distance of shops, chic cafes and bars, and the Jing An Temple, it is the best reason for staying here. The hostel is located down a narrow alley off Jiaozhou Road, and easily identified by its orange walls. Apparently it was a factory which manufactured towels in...

I have actually stayed here twice , this current time and two years ago in 2013, I wanted to give it a second chance. Le Tour could be unique but feels less so.

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
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
