“A good hostel with very helpfull reception staffs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2011

I stayed for one night (nov 9th,2011) in the standard room, 3rd floor. For me as single traveler, the room and also bathroom is too big. All of reception staffs are friendly, helpfull and very detail in explaining a place. The food is just so so but I think the price is expensive enough.
The location is walking distance to kuanzhai alley and close to the main street

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!
