The room (queen bed) was basic, but very clean, and nicely designed (bit industrial). The location is absolutely grate(!) Close to the metro, walking distance from people's park. Lots of nice cafes and bars around. Plus the cafe in he hostel itself is very nice (food we ordered was so, so, but the coffee is really good) Other than that... More

We found the staff here very friendly and helpful. The bar downstairs is eclectic and a lot of fun, the food was good, and there was plenty of good drinks including international beers, mixed spirits etc. The rooms were not brilliant, the cleaning was not exceptional, but it was a small criticism, the sheets were clean, and there was hot...

The hostel staff were generally quite welcoming, and they speak enough English to accommodate us which can be unusual in China. The rooms were clean and basic, the temperature was fine for us as we were in summer however in winter months I think the rooms are probably get quite cold. There are some limited chillout areas which are very... More

I stayed here for a few days on my China trip last month, in a four-person dorm, and would highly recommend this. The room was bright, clean, airy. The dorms don't have attached showers/toilet but it was no problem getting to them as there are several of them on every floor of the hostel. The cafe's nice for a snack... More

We flew into Chengdu from Europe and the Loft was a great first stop as most of the staff speak English, are very helpful and it was very comfortable. It's in a convenient place for quite a few attractions(People's Park, Culture Park, Green Ram Temple next door)if you are happy to walk. We could also walk to the metro easily... More

This is a very funky and modern hostel that used to be a paper factory . The dormitories are cheap and even cheaper if you book in advance. It's in a good location and the staff are very helpful. They also sell postcard and stamps and there is a relaxing cafe.

The reception / cafe area is very trendy, with a young and vibrant feeling. We had a large, clean and comfortable twin room with plenty of personality and large windows. The air-conditioning worked well and the bathroom / shower was also very good. Good value for money at the higher end of the "budget" hotels. Would definitely go again!

This is a fancy hostel, sure if you want to share a dorm it is only 50rmb a night, but rooms do go up-to 300rmb, and they really are nice!

We spent 2 nights in double room with bath. Room was acceptable. Clean and as you would expect for the price. Staff very helpful with good English skills. They helped book early morning taxi to airport, Sichuan Opera tickets, hotpot recommendation. The attached restaurant was good for snacks and drinks. Everyone was very friendly!
