Liked: It is centrally located, easy to get to, and easy to get to other attractions in Chengdu. It is close to the Catholic Church. The beds have privacy curtains.

Disliked: The bathrooms are not designed very well so everything usually gets wet in there. In my room, the bathroom door was broken so that there was a large crack where people could peak through.

Liked: Very easy to find, right next to a metro station which is very handy. Friendly staff, free beer coupon, and good facilities like laundry (need to pay a small charge though), and free pool and table tennis!

Disliked: Nothing much, would have liked wifi in the rooms (we were on the third floor) but the common area is very comfy to lounge about. Would probably have preferred the music to be turned slightly down... (although I did like the selection)

Liked: Food: Nice burger for rmb22, banana milkshake for rmb15 (with real bananas), large bottle of qingtao beer for rmb6, lipton red tea for rmb5 (common lipton tea can be hard to find in china; a place that drinks mostly green herbal tea). Clean ensuite toilets, fresh towels daily, toilet paper provided, rubbish in room emptied daily... generally a very clean comfy room that you can stay for days.

Disliked: slow lousy internet in common areas, and no internet in room. a lot of mosquitos (day and night) in common areas staff will ask you to pre-pay for everything, even when ordering food! (and charges rmb3 for re-fill of tomato sauce that's much needed for french fries!) staff don't understand what is mayonaise sauce (the white stuff that goes very well with fries)

Liked: It's located very convenient right next to a subway station. There's a snack place on the other side of the street and the city center is just one subway stop away. The people are friendly and offer tours and other activity.

Disliked: We stayed three nights. During that time, the rooms were not made up, hanging up the "please make up room" sign didn't help.
