Very cool hostel! The staff were really friendly and helpful. Very positive experience!


One of the best hostels Ive ever been to. Hippy hostel located very near to Kuanzhai xiangzi (traditional alleys of Chengdu). Near to a supermarket and a fruit shop. Stayed in a twin room. Wifi not available in the room. Be careful.

Thanks for your review. Have a nice trip in China. Loft Hostel Crew


Staff should have stopped some guests who were making a lot of noise during 1-2am when others are trying to sleep :(


Wifi reception in the rooms would be a big improvement!


I had a very great stay in the hostel, with very welcoming people ready to help. Though be careful of the info written in your website (it is written the aiport pick up is until 2 AM whereas it's until only 11.30 PM...) and check your emailbox more often to answer customers questions! But except from that I highly recommend this hostel, one of the cleanest I've seen till then

Thanks for your review!!~~Hope you have a nice trip in China.


Very trendy and interesting hostel with retro fittings and a very good courtyard space. Staff very friendly and helpful, rooms clean and so forth. Bathrooms awkwardly away from downstairs rooms requiring a quick semi-naked dash through the communal chill out area. No signs reminding loud Chinese to keep quiet/out of areas near the bedrooms at night. Thought coffee was very good but food totally overpriced and poor. Real disappointment. 'Risotto' was basically fried rice, whilst 'muesli, fruit, y


Nice hostel. We booked private rooms with ensuites which were very clean and comfortable, but I did hear other people complain about the shared bathrooms saying they could be cleaner. Nice restaurant area downstairs near reception. Staff were very very friendly and offered really good advice for day trips to Leshan, pandas etc. We used them to book some trips and train tickets. There was always someone at reception with perfect English. Would definitely recommend.


Toilets and basins could do with more frequent cleaning but other than that it was a fabulous hostel and I would recommend to anyone. WIFI great, beds are comfortable, showers great, and the tour to the pandas was good. Staff really helpful.

This hostel let us store our big rucksacks here while we went to Jiuzhaigou which was very helpful, and we also went on the Panda Tour for £10 which included transport and entrance with 3 hours there which was more than enough, and you go early enough to avoid the crowds. The Room itself was different in a good way, it had wooden floorboards and was painted brick walls. The bed was comfy and it was clean. The only issue was that the WIFI didnt work in our room on the third floor.


A bit noisy at night, everything is ok.


cool place. rooms not too small. clean toilets and showers. good bar.

Beautifully designed and with facebook access in China! Located in the street with many nice bars and small restaurants close to the city centre. Bathrooms located on the staircase on different levels are not that convenient and very cold in winter!!
