Good range of services included loaning public transport passes, arranging tours, etc. Excellent location next to shopping and transport lines. 24hr reception is actually 24hrs, staff are knowledgeable, fast Wifi even in rooms. Large rooms and toilets, clean sheets and comfortable beds. Room doors a bit thin so noise from corridors can be a bit irritating. Lots of food nearby ranging from cafes and eateries frequented by locals to mall fare just around the corner.

Love this place. Great common area. Rooms are clean but shared bathrooms make for a wet floor all the time. Amazing prices, service, helpful advice, friendly staff, rooftop terrace, hairdryer area outside rooms for quiet, curtains on beds for privacy, yummy food. Right down the road from underground transit, two minute walk to bus stops, next to nice park/fruit market, and five minute walk to major shopping center. Maps provided and a free beer coupon when checking in. Good wifi throughout. Love

Flip flop was awesome. Great people, atmosphere. Bathrooms aren't great. Food is okay but it's great for backpackers. Loved my stay.

Flipflop is in a great location. Their local food is some of the cheapest I've seen at a hostel, and it's delicious. Showers are in rooms so there are none to use until check in. Staff is nice but I got incorrect information when trying to do things myself (or else there was a miscommunication). Had no insight when I got the run around from train and bus stations for my trip to Guilin. Electricity only works with a room key so no leaving things to charge. Asked for a good review which I dislike.

The only problem was the plumbing but it wasn't a fault that the staff/hostel could help

After eating food in hostel we got food poisoning and 2nd day in Chengdu was awful, still food tasted good, so, plz, check if everything is fine regarding cooking at your hostel. I liked helpful staff, maps you gave, but this incident made my mark of your hostel lower than expected.

The staff is very nice and helpful and were nice enough to store my luggage for the night I spent at mt. Emei. The dorm room was however bit too dark and the AC did not really cool the room at all and had a very sweaty night sleep

Nothing but good things to say about this place. Dorm rooms are clean and so is the ensuite bathroom. Good modern and comfy common area . Wifi is strong. Staff is really nice, even remembered me from last year when I stayed at their sister hostel (Mix hostel), and they offer lots of helpful info. Short walk to Xinanmen bus station. Really great place.

Great Hostel. Location is good, close to the river, subway station, bus station and right next to a fruit market. Staff is great, good english and very helpful. Atmosphere is excellent, sometimes you feel to just sit down in the common room and relax, where you can meet a lot of people. It is very clean, they clean each bathroom very often and they can clean it again if you feel it is needed. Facilities are good, nice rooms with curtains in the beds for privacy. Great value for the money.

Hostel atmosphere! This is a big hostel and I don't think they have any idea of who is staying in the lobby at any time. People everywhere. Try the dorms, people are really nice, a bed is cheap and you'll have more fun than staying in a private room. They have tours to go anywhere, staff are really helpful and professional - and you get a free beer voucher when checking in. The let us watch the 2014 world cup on a projector screen at 4am even if they had closed it down earlier. Good place!!!
