“Simply terrific!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Perhaps one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Do not be put off by the word "hostel". Book an ensuite room and you will not be disappointed - certainly at the price.The hostel is perfectly placed to explore Chengdu. There is a metro station within easy walking distance (10-15 minutes) and plenty of bus routes close by. The staff were exceptional and could not have been more helpful in making suggestions from a personal itinerary to writing instructions in Chinese to show taxi drivers. The food was great too. Try their breakfast omelettes and club sandwich. Also there are some nice cafes along the street. Well done and thank you to everyone at the Loft Design Hostel!

One of the best hostels I've stayed at, excellent rooms and a really nice atmosphere to the place. Caters well to couples and families as well as those seeking dorm rooms. Good value for money, would happily stay here again.

Nice place to stay, staff are great, good vibe to communal areas, decent rooms.

Location is good - in fact better than it looks on the map. We walked nearly everywhere from here (although we're walkers).

Only complaint: no hot showers during the day in rooms on upper floors.

Room Tip: No hot showers during the day in rooms on upper floors.

Excellently decorated with tasteful art and whitewashed brick. The music was great and staff spoke good English. Clean and pleasant.
However we have a YHA hostel card which should get you 10% off the cost of a room. Unfortunately this was already factored into the online price which was a surprise.
Also we ordered food twice at the restaurant and twice they messed up the order both times.
In addition the two showers I had were warm but not hot.

Overall though we enjoyed our stay in this trendy hostel but the customer service could have been better.

Date of stay: 14/02/2013 - 15/02/2013

I stayed one night there and I regret I did not stay more longer...

Unfortunately, I came very late so I didn't have time to chit-chat with other backpackers but the atmosphere looks very cool.

The decoration is great, you can chill out outside in the yard or inside in the café, the public areas are well maintained (shower, restroom, ...).

I stayed in a 6 beds dormitory (lucky me, I was the only one in this one)... It was clean and spacious and the bed was comfortable. There is a drawer with a lock for each bed (big enough to put a rucksack and valuable things).

The person who greated me was nice as well and they can arrange you some trip tours that seem correct/interesting.

Warning: you can hear other people through the walls so it can be noisy since people go back and fourth all the time (I came at 1 am myself and probably woke some people up :o)

Last but not least:
- If you take the cab to go there, don't forget to print the adress and phone number but big enough otherwise the taxi driver won't do any effort to read it
- If you don't take the cab to go there and use there map (http://www.lofthostel.com/loft/zd.asp), note that the scale used is not precise. for instance, the WOWO convenient store and Bank of China are not so close to each other as the map indicates which is very tricky.

Hope the review can help

loft的风格讨喜,房间里有油汀,冬季也暖和。可惜缺点如下:1、房间隔音效果奇差无比,隔壁房间的随意交谈在我们房里听得清清楚楚,更别提半夜三点喝酒喧闹的住客,直接把我们从睡梦中吵醒,这样连续两晚睡不好!2、连续两个晚上要洗澡无热水。3、停车不方便,门口停车会被贴条,马路对面停车每小时收费6元,第一晚就收了38元!we spent 3 nights here in a room on the 3rd floor during the Chinese New Year. The room itself appealed to me at first glance for its size, the simple-designed interior and the cozy atmosphere, and the friendly reception lady.Unfortunately it turned out to be a decision made too early and bloody stupid!
Firstly, there was no hot water when I waited and waited naked in the cold small bathroom. 15 min passed when the hot water finally arrived. The next day however, there was no hot water THOROUGHLY so that we all had to sleep without a short shower after a day's out. When we checked with the reception, we were told that the hot water on the third floor was used up.
What made us DISLIKE this place most is as follows: we could not even fall in sleep during the night!!!Why?? Can you imagine that at 3:30am you were awakened by people next door talking, drinking, laughing loudly and yelling on the phone and clapping the door from time to time? Can you imagine that it happened AGAIN just the next night?????This is a hostel for people UNABLE to sleep!I WILL NEVER NEVER COME BACK HERE any more!

Had a wonderful time here! The western food is really really delicious and not pricy. The staff is amazing and nice! The rooms are small but cozy. Best part was the heating system, nice and comfortable, although it was freezing cold walking one floor up to use the bathroom ;-) Best part of the hostel is its interior art design. So many amazing pictures, sculptures and even a little store which sells english books and other cute gifts. Don't miss this Hostel!

Room Tip: the heating system is better than 3rd and 4th floor, and the rooms which room number is 02 and 03 wi...
