Liked: Clean rooms and bed linen. Beds quite comfortable though a little rickety. Reliable hot water. Friendly staff who can arrange all the usual tours; close to subway station and bus stops too. Easy to meet other travellers.

Disliked: Be careful with directions! My HB.com confirmation email contained directions to their old location near Xinnanmen bus station, and I wasn't the only person who ended up wandering around there in the middle of the night trying to find it. They moved to a new location up near Wenshu temple very recently, so make sure you have the correct address and get the map off their own website. They've basically taken over a past-its-best budget hotel and stuck bunkbeds and beanbags in the rooms - they're fine (although the bathroom was a bit grimy), but it very much looks like a work in progress, with room fittings stacked up in the corridors and dark concrete stairs. I heard there was a common area on the roof but it wasn't mentioned to me (night staff don't speak English). Reviews suggest the old place was a lot better, so here's hoping they get a better vibe going when the place is up and running.

Liked: Good location, close to bus station for excursions and a close walk to central Chengdu. The staff are really helpful and friendly. There's a decent cafe and relatively cheap beers. The hostel is associated with the hotel next to it and many of the hostel dorms are in the hotel building, so the facilities are nice and the rooms clean.

Disliked: Cameron left no negative feedback.

Liked: Chilled out, good atmosphere. Friendly and chatty staff. They always had a smile and a giggle. They would often ask how my day went and helped me with anything I needed. Facilities were great: pool table, badminton, lounge chairs, drinks for purchase. GREAT cafe / restaurant with good quality food and western style breakfast, wifi, washing machines. I got a double room and it was clean and well equipped.

Disliked: Wifi signal in some rooms was intermittent and non-existent in my room.

Liked: Location is good. It is the nearest place to Xinnanmen bus station which you can take bus to many places outside chengdu. Moreover, it is just opposite side of road that there are bus terminal where can bring you to panda base with few bucks. Some of the female staff were so nice, informative and helpful to guest. There is a paper in toilet too.

Disliked: Some of the male staff was so arrogant and loath to answer a question so talking with loud noise to guest so I felt like being a bit threaten. Some of them not trying to help solving problem of guest and look down on guest. It is a bad manner I never feel like this in any hostel in china or other asian countries. The sewer system have a problem.

Liked: Excellent hostel, VERY GOOD LOCATION ! Only 5 minutes away from the Xinnanmen Bus station, were you can take busses to Jiuzhaigou, Leshan, Emeishan..., bus at the front door to go the panda center, and metro not far away. Bus to go to the airport also really close. Nice rooms, locker provided. You can even acces facebook on the hostel's computers. Staff really helpful, and reception 24h !

Liked: Great common area, really helpful staff, big private rooms, clean bathrooms.

Disliked: Food took a VERY long time to come, even if it was just toast or museli. The bathrooms were outside so when it was raining you got soaking wet, maybe just a shade cover connecting the bathroom and the main building would be enough.
