I had a great time at The Phoenix and I would definitely come back. Great atmosphere and perfect location. The girls working at the recepcion were super helpful, and Ci Ci's sandiwhched are truely legendary. Food at the restaurt downstairs is good and at a fair price. Only bad thing is that they don't provide toilet paper and the bathroom could be cleaner, but nothing too bad.
Phoenix Hostel is a good value for your money. The rooms are basic but very confortable and the location is excellent. Very close to people square by foot and 5 minutes from the subway. Also the place is surrounded by lot of restaurants. The staff helped us to arrange all our trips giving us some advices. But the best of the hostel is the roof bar where you can have breakfast and, in the evening, have some drinks while you meet people all over the world. Definitely I recommend you.

Its location is very good. The rooftop bar is awesome. People is nice and helpful. Also, my roommates were friendly.
Stayed for one night in a private room with a double bed. Room was clean but mediocre, at best - extremely small, unpleasant lighting, and had a dirty, paint-splattered bench as a bedside stand. That said, the location is great, with lots of restaurants nearby (definitely check out the Yunnan restaurant right across the street - it was our best meal in Shanghai!). Overall, not expensive, but not worth the money - we also stayed at a nearby hostel which was cheaper with much nicer rooms.
It wasn't particularly clear when things were open, like the terrace bar etc.
Location is great - very close to the French Concession. The Hostel has a small Restaurant with reasonable prices for excellent chinese food. Antother advantage is the rooftop bar, where an always smiling girl makes the best sandwiches I've ever had - go for the breakfast! We would highly recommend this hostel and next time heading for Shanghai we will definetely stay there again.
