    Superb

    Great Location, center of the city. It was easy to reach an mtr and also to take a short walk or taxi to our destination. The front desk was very helpful in locating all locations we had in mind.

    Maybe keep a receipt when depositing bags to the storage room, just so no one can ask for someone else's bag.

    Location, close to city center and shopping area

    a little bit noisy, full of leek smell in the hallway because there is a dumpling restaurant downstairs

    Exceptional

    I loved everything about the Phoenix. The rooms were comfortable...the beds were large in the twin suite. The room was spacious. The staff was very polite and accommodating and spoke english. The location was 3 blocks from the Metro and walking distance to Nanging Rd and the Bund. The rooftop bar was a great place to meet people after a day of shopping. The bartender Fei Fei was very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely go back.

    Very strategic location, close to People's Square metro station & Dashijie metro station. Staff is friendly. Hostel has a rooftop bar.

    Restrooms need to be constantly cleaned.

    Very nice staff. Room clean and comfortable. There is a nice bar-terrace at the 5th floor.

    Breakfast was not included, it could be taken on the upstairs ba, but very expensive.

    Great location, most of Shanghai's sights are within walking distance. It's located on a recommended food street. The hostel has a roof top bar for residents and the restaurant attached it is pretty good (popular with locales too).

    Superb

    The location is very central to all tourist hot-spots in Shanghai. Very close to People's Square and Metro Lines 1,2 & 8. The staff were very helpful and spoke good English. The rooftop bar was the best place to hang out and meet some other travelers!

    The rooms should have more electrical outlets. Unable to charge phone or laptop & watch TV at same time.

    Exceptional

    The staff all spoke some English and were very helpfull. The restaurant on the ground floor was very good value, and the rooftop bar excellent for meeting people or just chilling out with a book or lap top. Beer got to be the cheapest in town.

    Fabulous

    Location is very good for the price. Two steps away from People's Square and Museum, nice street with cheap restaurants and fruit shop close by. You can walk to Bund - it's a long way, but doable. Big, clean rooms, bunk beds, but good ones, personal light near bed, all well furnished.

    Stuff was pretty damn clueless and barely spoke English - weird for Shanghai. You have to wait for one guy who is not very friendly, but competent. Others are nice girls and guy who can barely find the Bund on the map. No free maps, but you can force one out of them. No boiling kettle in the room, but you can get hot water in corridor. It's a strange place - mostly great, but sometimes there is no cold water (hot - yes!), I could never find toilet paper, other strange things happen...
