Shanghai is one of the most visited cities in China and is a seaport on the East China Sea. It is divided into 18 suburbs, whereof nine are located in the central region (Puxi).
A couple of the places you can stay in if you are looking for a hostel in Shanghai are Huangpu, the historic center of the city and Xuhui which offers lots of hip shopping and lifestyle spots. Generally speaking, you can expect Shanghai hostels to be clean and safe with friendly staff to help you in every situation.
If arriving by plane you will probably arrive at Shanghai Pudong airport. To get to the city center, take the legendary high-speed maglev train which reaches a speed of 430 km/hour. Getting to and from your hostel in Shanghai is also no problem since the city is served by a modern and comprehensive public transport system. If you get lost and ask somebody for directions, be aware that most people will think it is impolite to tell you they do not know either. Instead, they might lead you the wrong way just to give you an answer.
While you are there, enjoy some of the numerous cultural activities such as exploring the Shanghai Museum or the Museum of Art and History, attending a performance of a classic Chinese opera, or discovering the mixture of Chinese and modern architecture. You can also go shopping on Nanjing Road, discover up-and-coming Chinese artists at Moganshan Art District and join the vibrant nightlife in the hip district Xintiandi. After all that you'll be ready for a good night's rest at your Shanghai hostel.

HI - Shanghai - Le Tour Shanghai YH Hostel
"HI - Shanghai - Le Tour Shanghai YH Hostel is located right near the metro station (in fact, it is almost underneath the metro line). It is in a somewhat more poor area of Shanghai (compared to the area around The Bund and around the Pearl Tower), however, within a five-minute walk of the hostel is an area with street food as well as McDonald's and convenience stores. The rooms are air conditioned and the beds are comfortable. The Location...
HI - Shanghai Easytour - Mingtown Etour Hostel
"This hostel is great. It's very clean and everything is new. The staff are very helpful when you ask them questions. The best part is that all the toilets and showers are one per small room (no huge rooms with lots of showers together), which gives a sense of privacy unlike other hostels. It is tough to find but with a map of Shanghai it's not too difficult. The location on a small residential street adds to the charm and peacefulness. I...
HI - Shanghai Mingtown Hiker YH Hostel
"Hiker Youth Hostel -Shanghai has a relatively large atmosphere. There are ensuite, co-ed, and single rooms. There are three computers with internet connection in the lobby, but considering the number of guests, it’s hard to get computer time and there is always a line of people waiting. The hostel has wireless internet connection if you bring your own laptop. There are bathrooms and showers on each floor. The showers are small and...
City Central International Hostel
"City Central International Hostel is a large, institution-like hostel. The Location It is a bit far from the city centre and the most convenient way to find it is by taxi, but make sure you keep the receipt in case you get ripped off on the price of the ride, as this is quite common. There is also a subway station close by, approximately ten minutes' walk. Rooms and Bathrooms This place is a large building with many floors and...
Beehome International Youth Hostel
Pudong New Area
"Beehome International Youth Hostel is not the typical crazy backpacker hostel. Many of the guests are Chinese people who are working or doing business in the financial district. It is very quiet without drunk gap year students making noise. On the other hand, it's harder to find other Western travelers with which to hang out. All the better reason to get immersed in a local Chinese neighbourhood, and try the local foods! The Location...
HI - Shanghai - Blue Mountain YH ShangHai Hostel
"Secondhand smoke, slow internet - if you don't mind slow internet and second hand smoke then it shouldn't be a problem. many nights i could smell smoke in my room with the door closed. seems like smokers can just about smoke anywhere they like -- in the bathroom, front desk and in all of the rooms, the common area with a bar is non smoking. I would suggest them to divide parts of the hostel into smoking and non-smoking rooms. And to move the...
Mingtown People's Square Youth Hostel
"Mingtown People's Square Youth Hostel is a good hostel. With traditional Chinese style, it provides all the tourists an excellent environment to see Chinese culture and meet people. Additionally, the staff there are friendly and helpful to all the guests. However, the rooms of the hostel are quite small and a bit dark, which should be improved in the future. The Location When talking about location, we need to say that it's not easy to...
Le Tour Traveler's Rest Youth Hostel
"We consider Le Tour Traveler's Rest Youth Hostel one of the best hostels in China, and that's saying a lot. It's large and it's obviously a business, but still, it's friendly and full of character. There's plenty of space, which is a good sign that the owners are not after every last jiao. There is so much here that it should meet the needs of most types of hostelers, except perhaps smokers, as it's nonsmoking throughout. There's Wi-Fi in all...

Shanghai Travel Tips & Suggestions
Shanghai is a very beautiful city -- I just love it. Take a river boat and go to Shanghai Tower.
Shanghai is like any big city and it feels too Western. The old city and Yuyuan Gardens is touristy but beautiful and the area across the water from the Bund is beautiful. There is not much to do here, so after three days I was ready to move on.
