Place is on really good location, everything is in walking distance. That said its very convenient to explore city. Bed was comfortable, i didn't have any problem sleeping and waking up rested after long walks. Food was good. Staff very friendly and helpful. I will definitely come back.

Good hostel in Chengdu, near a street with lots going on, opposite the metro and the packages they offer are excellent. I highly recommend the SiChuan opera.
Great location, fantastic staff - their English is amazing. It was close to everything. The food and drink was cheap and delicious! The staff are super helpful with directions etc. just ask them! Chengdu is a fantastic place to visit - when we come back we will be staying here again!
Great place to stay, Panda tour was great from here, definitely worth doing with them as you get there earlier and the guide knows exactly where to take you. Staff were very honest, returning a purse full of cash that one of our group left on the sofas. Definitely recommended.
Wasn't in Chengdu for long, but from what we saw, Lazy Bones was in the best location for exploring the city in a couple days. Staff was awesome, rooms were nice, bar and food was great. I've stayed in many hostels in China, and Lazy Bones was top notch.
Amazing hostel with amazing staff!! Only bad point was the tour guide who took us to the pandas, seemed like he really didn't want to be there and made it quite awkward because he was so grumpy. The pandas were so cute it made up for it!
I loved this hostel! Fantastic atmosphere created by a brilliant and caring staff.
Atmosphere was not pleasant to be in. This hostel felt the most like a hotel than any other hostel we've stayed yet stayed in during our year long travels in China. Feeling more like a hotel and less like a communal hostel showed in the peoples' attitude in the common area and in the attitude of the staff. Everything was sufficient but not nearly as welcoming, inviting, or comfortable as other hostels.
FANTASTIC FOOD WITH FANTASTIC PRICES FOR TRAVELERS. This hostel also offers cooking classes for those interested in cooking local Chinese food. I got to learn how to make Kung Pao Chicken and Ma Po Tofu, some really great specialties of the province. The staff is well spoken, professional, and very helpful, and I can't forget to mention how cute some of them were as well ;) The hostel is able to arrange numerous trips around the province for great prices as well for those wanting adventure!
LOVE this place and the people! Would definitely recommend staying here!
Close to metro,good staff ,clean and value this money.
The location is perfect, 5 second away from the metro and really close to all the main places! The staff is really helpful-helped us buy train tickets(in cny!!!!!!), helped us with where to go and how! We stayed in the 8 bed dorm, the bathroom was dirty and not clean... The bar is really nice!
facility of shower is bad..but staff is very nice.
Really recommend this place, staff were excellent, helpful and friendly! Great atmosphere with plenty of opportunities to meet travellers, close and convenient to places, metro station literally right across the road! Directions were a little confusing to get to the place - I would describe it as --> Leave the metro station, go across the road immediately close to you, and don't go anywhere near the intersection! I'll be staying here next time I go to Chengdu. Cheers guys :)
We absolutely loved Lazy Bones!! Staff were amazing (especially Kaye!), very helpful and really friendly. Lots of free things to do, even when there isn't an organised event you can relax in the bar area and play mahjong or meet other travellers. Rooms were clean with good facilities (including an electric blanket!!), bins changed daily and a fresh toilet roll provided. Great location and food searved in bar area tasty at reasonable prices. Would definitely return, thank you Lazy Bones!!
My first time staying in a hostel and it far surpassed my expectations. The location is excellent with Tianfu Square being so close and most other attractions also nearby. The staff spoke excellent English and extremely knowledgeable. They're trip booking service was especially good with frequent excursions to both Jiuzhaigou national park and the panda breeding centre. Atmosphere was only average but that was probably because I stayed there out of peak travelling season (December/January)
Toilets not flushable, kind of smelly in the room. Overall is fine, great location and helpful staff.
Excellent service. Very friendly and professional staff who were ready to help at any time.
