At the Phoenix Hostel we are dedicated to providing you with the best possible stay in Shanghai. We are driven to provide the most comfortable rooms and the best service in the best hostel in Shanghai.
With two subway stations, People’s Square, the Nanjing Road pedestrian area, and The Bund a short walk away our location is the most convenient in the city. Our friendly and helpful reception staff will be happy to help you plan your day’s activities and organise tickets to local events and tours. When you’re done exploring for the day the Phoenix Bar located on the rooftop terrace is a great place to relax and unwind, especially on warm summer nights.
In our quest to be the best hostel in Shanghai we are investing in the future and have just renovated and totally renewed the 4th floor, with the 3rd floor to follow soon. This allows us to offer you fresher, even more comfortable and modern rooms than before.
If there is anything we can do to make your stay more pleasant and comfortable please let our reception staff know. The reception desk is staffed 24/7 and we are always ready to assist you.
The Phoenix is an independent hostel in the centre of Shanghai. We provide great value hotel standard accommodation at hostel prices in an amazing location.
Our hostel is on south Yunnan road, also known as Yunnan food street because of its amazing selection of restaurants. We love our location and not just for the food! We are very close to People's Square metro station (a 5 minute walk). and Dashijie metro station(1 minute walk). It's a perfect place for sightseeing, shopping, people watching, exploring and getting to the far corners of this huge city.
From our hostel, you can walk to the following major sites within 15 minutes:
- The Bund - the famous stretch of buildings on the bank of the Huangpu river
- Shanghai museum, Shanghai art gallery, Shanghai museum of modern art, Shanghai urban planning exhibition centre, People's Square, People's Park
- Yuyuan (jade garden), city God temple, White Cloud taoist temple and the old town
- Huaihai road, Xintiandi and Dongtai road antique market
Nobody said that travel had to be uncomfortable! All our rooms are en-suite and have free internet access. All our rooms have windows and air con/heating systems. We have comfortable double beds, bright single rooms and excellent dormitory rooms for those on tighter budgets. Our rooms have black-out curtains to keep the dawn out and have double glazed windows to help you get a good sleep if you need one.
Our rooftop is a great place to relax after spending a day exploring Shanghai. A chilled out space to meet new friends, read books from our free selection, play games or plan your next party.
On the first floor of our building you can visit our Shanxi restaurant and enjoy the wide variety of dishes from this area - it's probably very different from the Chinese food you have in your home country. It's delicious and cheap - what more could you ask for?
We hope that our guests will make the most of their time in China - a country with an interesting and diverse culture. The Phoenix also holds a culture lounge, a great place to relax and learn more about China. The Phoenix Lounge offers long term courses to people living in Shanghai, but for our hostel guests we can arrange short culture classes in:
- Mandarin Chinese
- Chinese brush painting
We hope that all our guests will have a wonderful stay at the Phoenix in Shanghai.
