I felt the staff lacked the warmth mostly I saw in people of Chengdu. Seemed their arranged trips are costlier. Although we noticed few absurd things there, I think we should have brought it to the staff's notice first, before posting it here, so I am not listing them here.
Lazybones was conveniently located next to a metro stop, so arriving from train station. Room was clean and comfortable. Hairdryers available. Free hot pot dinner with the purchase of a cocktail at their bar the night we were there.
easy going people. helpful. 10m from metro. organized activities. 2nd stay.
Really well located,the entrance of the metro is opposite the hotel.I really like this hostel Staff were friendly and helpful.I reccomend this place.
Great facilities and great people. Very helpful and friendly crew. I spoke to a few other people that had stayed at other Chengdu hostels and they were really happy with Lazybones.

The staff here are absolutely amazing, very helpful, welcoming and cheerful! The rooms were clean with good beds and pillows and a great shower that's an actual shower with partition! The central lounging area is great with bar, restaurant ( good food!), pool table and an overall good vibe to it. Wifi is good. They also do tours and have activities planned on certain days/ nights of the week. Loved this place!!

Bestest ever Great hostel with the most friendliest staff of all off the places we stayed in our Chinese travels Common room had great atmosphere, very conducive to meeting travellers Arranged tours (Panda tour), great value and early enough to see the panda's active and miss majority of the tour groups Sal says mention the cute cats and great cocktails We stayed twice
They can provide Fa Piao (Official local Chinese invoice for expense) and offer free print (several pages is a reasonable number). The reception boy is nice and really helpful (I checked in at 11:59, Oct 17). Thanks for your work.
Excellent location, only two blocks away from a large shopping centre packed with great restaurants! And conveniently located next to a subway entrance. Woke up in the night as there was a rodent in the suspended ceiling of our room, making a lot of noise. The room itself was clean and tidy, though. Love the common area downstairs - good place to meet other travellers; love the cats!
Mary and Victoria were great. They were personable and extremely helpful with directions and information about Chengdu.

The common room is big and cozy, nice if you're travelling alone. It is a very nice place. The only problem is that we saw a cockroach in our room...
Very nice and helpfull stuff. The tour organisation was perfekt. We enjoy the free dumpling party!!!!!!!! The food was yummy. Lazy Bone saved our trip!!!!!!
Very good hostel, nothing bad to say. I really appreciate the map they gave from Chengdu, very usefull to explore the city.
Lazybones was a great place to stay! First we had 2 nights at FlipFlip Hostel which was as good as the Lazybones. Very friendly and a great hospitality. The food was very good at a fair price. Nice common area with pool table and other games. We would definitely recommend this place.
Very nice youth hostel well located. Excellent food and cheap beer. Nice activities. don't miss the pandas. I would definitely come back here.
Great location. Well-organised panda tour. Bike tour was given by enthusiastic staff, although the rusty bikes could do with a little repair.
Excellent service with very friendly staff. It was a convenient pit-stop as we toured Jiuzhaigou, Emeishan and the panda reserve. Love the affordable western food at the bar/common room. Shower was wonky on the first night, but the hostel promptly fixed it for us. All-in-all, very value for money.
Very good location, just few meters from the metro station. Very friendly staff, looked like a family and also was nice to see that they really like their job! There was also a small bar in the hostel, you can buy some drinks for reasonable prices and you can also order some food. In my case the food was prepared very quickly and was tasty. There was a little disadvantage in my case - someone was living in the room maybe for longer time, so there was a lot o clothes everywhere...
Great hostel likely to meet the needs of a range of traveller types. Wifi struggles with the number of guests but sufficient for checking emails and a bit of browsing. Staff are friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. We arranged airport pick up and a day trip (pandas/Leshan buddha) prior to arrival and transport to the airport before leaving - all of which were recommended for value/convenience. Lots more on offer. The food at the hostel is also fantastic value and super tasty!
Probably the best hostel I have stayed at in China. Warm welcoming atmosphere, excellent Western and Chinese food, cheap beer, clean and soft beds, and best of all the staff. They are so friendly and will help you with whatever you need. I would go back to Chengdu just for this hostel alone. I love Lazy Bones!
