We stayed at the 2nd floor and have problems with weak Wi-fi signal. It was On and Off.
The room is spacious and clean. The bed is great but they do not change the towel everyday.
We got problem with the stinky bathroom at the first night and luckily we were moved to another room on the next day.

There are many cafes in the street, it will be noisy at night especially on the weekend.
Local food, minimarket, cafe and restaurant can be found around by walking.

We took panda tour, Giant Budha Leshan + Mt. Emei tour and Dujiangyan + Mt. Qingcheng tour from the hostel. The panda tour is OK. But prepare for long walking in Mt. emei (more than 6km). Dujiangyan + Mt. Qingcheng is not recomended. All tour is Chinese speaking guide.

The staff are very helpful and i recommend this hostel!

Room Tip: Corner suites are larger and sunny plus no stinky smell from the bathroom, but more noisy.

We were pleasantly surprised when we got to The Loft - renovated from an old brickworks - it has plenty of charm and is very funky. We booked a double private en-suite, which was cheap at $16 a night, but the bathroom had a rancid odour coming from it all the time.
The staff, to their credit, did everything possible - the manager came up to inspect it and she sent the cleaners in twice (although they just ran loads of water down the sink and shower, which didn't do anything at all!) but there were no other rooms available so we just stuck with it and opened the windows and turned the air-con on full blast.
Apart from that, the small seating / lounge area was really nice and comfortable. The breakfasts were especially good and the beer was cheap.
So once they sort out their drainage problem, I'm sure it'll be a lot nicer.

My partner and I recently stayed in a double room. The vibe of this hostel is very chilled and chic modern. 

The spacious room had a great old factory feel with big windows. The bed was super soft and bathroom was actually clean, which are both extremely rare in China. Our bathroom did have a funky smell but not enough for us to make a fuss about.

The staff are overall helpful and gave us some good dinner options in the area. The cafe/common room has a very comfortable and cosy vibe and you could spend hours just soaking up life. The street has some great other cafes which gives a nice alternative vibe to the skyscraper/shopping center lined streets of Chengdu.

We wish all hostels were like this one...

Large size room with huge, comfortable bed. The towels were changed and the bins emptied daily. The staff were great and always helpful. We had a problem with the air-con in our room so they moved us and were apologetic that the room was on the 4th floor but it didn't worry us. We booked a panda tour and an Sichuan Opera tour and had no problems. They also stored some of our luggage for free when we went on a side trip to Mt Emi for a couple of days. The restaurant didn't open until 9am which is late for breakfast in my view, the food we did have there was good but there is not much local food on menu.If you turn left when you go out the door there is an excellent noodle cafe at the end of the street, you can watch the noodles being made by a young guy who has a smile on his face all day. Dishes cost 10 to 15 yuan for most. There are many small bars and cafe's in the street which can get a bit noisy at night. Pack your earplugs!

Filled to the brim with eclectic stuff, this old printing house has found new life in its reincarnation as a youth hostel.

Rooms were fairly roomy with enough space to dump your backpack without having someone trip over it. The double-deck beds were a little flimsy though, so every movement from your bed-mate would definitely rock your world. Lockers were also big enough to put stuff in (although not your entire backpack.)

A pity that the showers were all on the first floor only (toilets available on every floor) - but they were very clean, and very thoughtfully designed, with a shower curtain to keep your clothes dry, and enough rack space to put your toiletries on. Hot water was always available.

The hostel's also situated in a very lovely area for walking around - the famous Broad-Narrow Streets are nearby (10 mins stroll away), and there are loads of buses to take anywhere you want to go.

Be aware of the terrible Chengdu traffic though! Rush hour will see you wishing you were walking instead of on the bus/in a taxi.

Room Tip: As the bathrooms are on the first floor, best if you get a room not too high up if you like your bathrooms close.
