    I would suggest that you prepare a more adequate supply of soap and toilet paper in the toilets on the first floor. Other than that, everything is fantastic and worth the money.

    Really good location, great atmosphere, nice people, although the staff can't really speak english, and not too helpful if you are a foreigner (although this is not surprising around China as of my experience)

    The hostel itself is very nice. I liked the layout, kind of a courtyard style and they had a lounge area on each floor with comfy sofas. There was a nice atmosphere and helpful staff. The only thing that I didn't like was that the squat toilet and the shower were together so I should have gone to the groundfloor to have a shower in a proper cabin shower (if it makes sense). Other than that the hostel is in a very good location!

    I stayed here only for two nights. Everything was fine, except there is one toilet at the third floor, and the water pressure is too low and I have waited for more than 5 minutes just to get the water heated. I hope they solve this problem soon.

    Clean hostel in a nice location, however there was no atmosphere, no bar. One hole in the floor toilet/shower between 4 shared rooms. The shower was hot but was over the toilet so if someone went for a stinky one just before you you've got to shower next to it... There is a western toilet on the ground floor. Nice enough hostel if you just want a bed but we wanted to be more social!

    I'll say this, there's a subway stop down the street and an amazing Xinjiang noodle shop a 5 minute walk away. It's also in the middle (as in, you have to walk through) a market. That said, it's smack in an old hutong neighborhood that's become an unrecognizable blur of coffeeshops and tourist stalls. If you haven't been in China or Chengdu long, you may appreciate it more. The top floor only had one small bathroom for all 3 or 4 dorm rooms, and the staff seemed pretty disinterested.

    Ok hostel but awful location, right in the middle of Chengdu’s busiest pedestrian street. Have to battle through the hundreds of people on your doorstep just to get to the hostel. Better off staying a little further away and visiting dragon town on your own than actually staying there. Nightmare!

    I'm really surprised this hostel got the rating it did. I did not enjoy my stay here: No lockers- you have to ask the reception to store stuff for you, that isn't ideal. There is a washing machine but extremely limited space to hang your clothes up. There is zero vibe. I think I was the only western guest there- the rest were Chinese families. Extremely noisy- common area outside rooms in third floor and although there is a sign saying no noise after 11, it's not enforced.

    So many things wrong with this place. There's only one bathroom (toilet/shower combo room) and one sink on the third floor. All the other toilets and showers are all the way on the first floor. There was never any toilet paper. I could feel each wooden board through the "mattress." No lockers. Not enough space to hang dry clothes. Dorms are cramped. Staff has limited English, which is fine, but some make no attempt to even try to understand.
