Very good location, a little hard to find at first, but once you see the Big etour sign as the road breaks right, its tucked in an alley to the left. Right in the middle of the action, next to very expensive hotels, why bother paying hundreds a night for the same location? Common areas were very good, and nice...

No doubt location is good with cheap local eateries and foot massages round the corner. Near to Line 2 People's Square Metro. Moulds and algae are growing on all 4 walls and ceilings of Room 115/116 (Double Room). Hazardous to health with the mouldy air.Management replied that all rooms are in similar condition due to recent rains but only offer...

Amazing location and atmosphere for the price! I stayed here for three nights in a double room by myself (I had to pay for two people) and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was clean and had a great atmosphere (charming choices in the hallways, rooms, and restaurant/courtyard area to show culture and history). It is on a little side street...

Aside from the fact that it is a bit pricy for a youth hostel (265 RMB for a double room with shared bathroom), the place is great. The setup is fantastic with great decor. The room was very clean and had everything necessary. Weary of the shared bathroom we soon realized it wasn't a problem at all, it was spotless...

stayed here for a few nights. A great location for a brief trip to Shanghai as it's so central, however do not stay if you're allergic to cats as there are 2 hostel cats which are always lurking around and stinking up the place - good if you like cats of course! but im bias as im allergic. The reception...

Good choice overall. i got a private room on the 2nd floor. Given the price (250Y), it was surprisingly large and came with an arm chair, TV, towels and reading desk. The common areas were nicely furnished and designed. It was a bit noisy from my room until midnight - not so good if you plan to go to bed...

We picked this hostel because it was highly recommended by a friend who had lived there for two months. It absolutely exceeded our expectations. The location is awesome (right next to People's Square Park and the metro stop), the staff is extremely helpful and nice and the room was better than any hostel we stayed at in South America or...

The location is ok...pretty far from the subway but taxis are cheap enough in Shanghai so we decided to do that after the first day. The building doesn't look like much from the outside but the design is quite modern and nice inside. However, it smells moldy and didn't seem too clean. The shower in our private room was awful...

my hubby & I visited some friends in china. We decided to go to shanghai for a weekend. Honestly I was hesitant to stay in a hostel, we wanted to stay in a nice hotel but our friends convinced us that it was not worth to pay much just for sleeping. Before we checked in, we asked to see the...

Staying in People’s Square

Neighbourhood Profile
People’s Square
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.
