“AKA The Phoenix”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

May be under new management, not sure....An independent hostel located in the center of Shanghai, on south Yunnan Road, also known as Yunnan food street because of its variety of selections of restaurants. We’ve come to calling it the Music District (all store fronts in the neighborhood sold all types of instruments). Located near the metro (Dashijie Station) and in walking distance to People’s Squire, the Bund, Yu Garden and Bazaar, Sightseeing Tunnel, Huangpu River, Pudong Park and the Oriental Pearl Tower. Located on the first floor is Shanxi restaurant that serves wide variety of dishes from the area; it's delicious and cheap. Their rooftop is a great place for morning coffee and light breakfast (also serves as their bar beginning in the early afternoon). Outstanding friendly staff, with limited English speakers, but Mason was excellent in helping us get around and in giving us good suggestions on where to eat. Our room was very large and accommodated us four travelers nicely. Always clean, the trash bins were emptied and toilet paper was replaced every day (something you don’t get in most hostels). Also, we had a great nightly view from our window. I definitely recommend this place -- good price and great location.
