  • No safes in the room I was in, but staff was trustworthy and they would let you lock things up at the front desk. This is my only real complain. Otherwise everyone was friendly and helpful and quick to respond to any problems. If you don't speak Chinese it may be a little tougher as many of the staff don't speak English. But enough do so it shouldn't be an issue.

  • I found The phoenix probably the best hostel in my experiences in China. Very good and professional staff, really well located in the center, near many good restaurants and shops. The balcony in the last floor has a wonderfull view of the old streets of Shanghai, perfect to enjoy drinks and breakfast or surf in Internet.
