Lazy bones is in a fantastic location actually a one minute walk from the subway. The staff are eager and helpful and just lovely people (they like to hang out there too)! The rooms are nice and the common area feels a lot like a groovy cafe.

The staff at this hostel were all extremely helpful and spoke excellent English! They helped me look up bus times and hire a car to leshan for the day. Their restaurant recommendations were perfect and the dumpling party on friday was fun The only downside was that the bathroom was not clean at all. mixed 4 bed dorm, smell of mold was overpowering. The wallpaper was covered in mold and peeling off..terrrible smell, but just a place to sleep so not bad! awesome staff though!

We had a great time at Lazybones. The staff was friendly and always happy to answer questions. Good beer and cocktail selection, and a big menu with hearty, tasty food. Adjacent to a subway, so it was a breeze getting around the city. Highly recommend!!!!!

Really enjoyed my stay here. The communal area downstairs has a great atmosphere and good wifi. Staff couldn't have been more helpful with booking plane tickets and providing really good information about the local area. Only downside was that because the room had an en suite bathroom, the main bedroom area felt damp as not great ventilation but a small negative for a great hostel. Would definitely stay again.

one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at - i would imagine it is the best hostel in china. I rated security down one notch as the housekeeper opened and left open my window for the day (there were screens) making my room very easily accessible to an intruder - they even have signs up saying make sure to close your windows to help with security,.

my room don't have a Wifi signal. If you want to use WiFi you must come out from the room ( at the front of the door room the wifi could worlk immediately). The shower room and toilet unclean. The reception girls aren't helpful, they unwilling to answer anything. Besides unwilling to answer the question, they also made the annoying face to me too.

Easy access to metro and trains. Walking distance to CBD. Staff super helpful to get onward transport info. Bar closed a lot so unable to order breakfast in morning or food mid day. Tours are extremely expensive.

Verk happy with this stay. Nice common area to meet fellow Travellers. Enjoyed the location, really easy to walk everywhere. And the BEST citymap we've received from a hostel ever. Took the panda tour which we highly recommend! Would recommend and stay here again for sure.

I recommend the half day panda tour. The driver doesn't speak English all that much but he took us around to all the enclosures at ideal times and took all the guesswork out of the visit as we didn't need to think about where to go. We saw most things before the crowds of people arrived which was great. Definitely worth doing this tour.

very convenient for transportation, just opposite of the street to subway station. there is a curtain for privacy in mixed dorm, which is quite good. Also like the plants in small garden. I met a new friend here, really impressive. In total, a good place to stay in Chengdu.
