Housed in a former towel factory, this fabulous youth hostel leaves most others hanging out to dry. You’ll pass a row of splendid shíkùmén (stone-gate houses) on your way down the alley to get here. The old-Shànghǎi textures continue once inside, with red-brick walls decorated in graffiti, polished concrete floors and reproduced stone gateways above doorways leading to simple but smart rooms and six-person dorms (with shared bathrooms).

Double rooms are not very spacious, but they have flat-screen TVs and they're clean. Rooms are ¥10 to ¥30 pricier on Fridays and Saturdays. The hostel also has small apartments next door for short- and long-term rental. The ground floor has a ping-pong table, a pool table and wi-fi, all of which are free to use, and there’s a fine rooftop bar-restaurant with outdoor seating. Bicycles can also be rented for ¥30 per day.

It's down an alley off Jiaozhou Rd.

Description via Hostelworld

Le Tour Travelers Rest Youth Hostel is located in the downtown area of Shanghai and is just 10 minutes 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.

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 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 Caf 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
