The best hostel I stayed at in China, by far! Friendly, outgoing staff. Nice, clean rooms and modern, spacious communal area. Great bar (well used on my part!) and delicious food menu. Chengdu seems on a bit of a crossroads for travellers in China, so the hostel is very popular, and the communal area is buzzing with people to talk to.
Taken on a great 'whitewater' bike tour around the city streets by the manager Laura, and had a fantastic night out with two of the staff, Mae and Georgia (though I felt my age in the morning!) The panda tour is excellent, where the guide has the inside knowledge to whisk you around the zoo escaping the crowds and seeing the pandas at their best.
Can't recommend it more highly, one of the highlights of my holiday. Keep up the good work Flipflop!
