Overall, the hostel was a great place to stay. It is very clean and easily accessible. The lounge area is great for meeting other travelers, which is the main thing I look for when looking at hostels (other than cleanliness and location). Food and drinks are available, and not expensive. The staff are not incredibly outgoing, but they are helpful. The beds have electric blankets, which is much needed in the winter time. I'd recommend this place to anyone going to Chengdu.
My friend and I stayed in this hostel for one week. It is in a great location! Only 5 minutes away from a mall, Chunxi Lu Metro stop, and tons of food and shopping to do! They had signs all over in and outside the hostel in Chinese and English which was helpful to know. We did not really use the tours they provided, but I bet they are nice. They gave us a map which was helpful finding places and visiting spots around Chungdu, but a bit outdated due to it only having 2/4 metro lines.
Good place just for one night. Not more.
A cool place! Theres a market just downstairs where u can buy lots of stuff cheap :) Buses all over town are pretty close by too :) The staff were really helpful with any questions u might have. I went on the opera trip they organise -- highly recommeded!
I loved this hostel! The location and staff were great! The food was amazing and they offered an excellent variety of international cuisine at a great price.
The hostel had a good atmosphere, a nice common area and a good food menu! The staff were however really bad at giving directions (possibly because of the language barrier) but 3 out of 4 times the directions and prices were wrong! The hostel has a okay location near street food vendors late at night, and about 10 minutes from the subway. Even though the taxis from the airport have to use a metre we got charged double the quoted price so just be careful! Overall a good stay, hot showers!
Great wifi ! Good food for cheap price !
The staff make this hosel. They were great in helping me arrange a driver for the panda trip!
Very well-located hostel in downtown Chengdu with a large common room. Staff were generally helpful and there were good daily offers on food.
The location is good and its surrounding is full of restaurants that are opened till late night. The bathroom however is quite small especially the shower part.
I'll definitely stay here again next time I'll drop by Chengdu!
its very nice place to stay for backpackers... People are all friendly.... .thanks FLIP FLOP...^^
Great location next to great hot pot restaurants, a street full of night bbq and right next to the bus station (10 minutes walk). Staff are really friendly and funny, good lounge area, big hostel with loads of rooms. The rooms are good size and clean, the cleaning staff are friendly. Good hostel!
+ good size room, hot water, kettle etc. + Lovely staff, helped me find a barber. Stood in the street and spoke to the taxi. + Good panda tour, had free activities like free dumpling party. + nice bar area with cheap food and drink, pool table and fuzball. Lots of food places in the area. - kind of far from metro but only 15min walk. - shower a little small. - nothing else really. Lots of chinese guests if that bothers you, but not us. Plenty of westerners too. Top place, would reccommend.
probably the best hostel i stayed at in china . was very happy with everything.
Fliplop hostel is a great hostel ih the Chengdu City centre. And their staffs are very helpul. especially, 張阿姨，陳阿姨徐阿姨 Great the localtion, friendly staffs . I love this hostel!!!
It's a really great hostel, perfect location, friendly and helpfull staff, nice atmosphere! Would definitely recommend this to everyone and will come back for sure.
One of the better hostel to stay in if you need to catch the long disance bus early the next morning. Great efforts in having the curtain installed on every bed but these curtains are not effective as they are always dropping off. The pillow is too flat for comfort.
