Het eerste hotel in China, Shanghai

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 (JingAn Temple Station and Airport City Terminal). Shanghai Exhibition Centre 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.
