The Mingtown Etour Youth Hostel is located in the metropolitan city in China — Shanghai! It's located in the center of the city, right in the People's Square area.

The entire 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 suits the surroundings well, and opens directly onto the cultural attractions of one of Shanghai's Nong Tang (old-style narrow alleys).

The hostel holds 20 standard rooms and over 70 bunk beds. Onsite facilities include a restaurant, bar, self-service laundry, common area, as well as a mini pool. The young staff members speak moderate English, and are familiar with tourism points of interest and travel information.
