Great Stay”

Friendly knowledgeable staff, clean rooms, & lots of activities

I really enjoyed my stay the Chengdu Flipflop Lounge Hostel. The Staff were very helpful and spoke English well. The lounge itself is comfortable--it gets a little loud in the evenings, but that's to be expected, and it was quiet in my room. There were some great activities posted around the lounge for tours, trips, cooking classes (that was fun), and regular hotpot parties. Also, the roof was lovely and relaxing--flowers everywhere. The wifi was sadly lacking, but that was true pretty much everywhere I went, so I do not think it is an issue for the hostel so much as a the region(?), at the moment. On the whole it was a great place to stay--recommended.

The hostel is just 5 mins walk from Chunxi Road Metro Station/春熙路站 (exit E1, with escalators or E2, without escalators). Strategic location. The room is as shown in the photos, spacious and clean. The concierge staffs are friendly and they do provide details information about Chengdu. They provide various of day tours with pick up service and reasonable price, kindly email them and get info before your arrival. Their delicious breakfast is a plus point. And a fruit stall at entrance.

can't wait to come back, that's for sure!”

clean, affordable, no communication breakdowns!

best place to stay in chengdu! so near to the metro (which was in a mall, silver), and so near to the shopping district. the staff spoke great english and were very friendly and attentive. they have an outdoor lounge area upstairs which was really nice... if the chengdu weather was not hazy and the nights dark. also, they have organised tours within the hostel, so if you come to chengdu without any plans, just follow their free (and awesome) map and you'll have a blast! the worst part of my 2 week trip there was the 'sichuan opera'. the whole thing is an embarrassment to the name of theatre and performance art. if you want to watch a proper oriental opera, do not follow their tour. spend some money and watch a good one. i wanted to cry at the end of it. it did have the mask-changing and a bit of acrobats, i've watched better ones in beijing and malaysia for free by the temples. oh!!! do try the blind massage at the niushikou blind massage school, it's near the niushikou metro (42, niushikou rd.), the best massage ever for only 35 yuan (about usd6).

Central Location - Great Rooms - Thin Walls”

Location, Room Size and Cleanliness, English Staff

Flipflop is a great hostel with a location literally 5 minutes from Chunxi. It is easily accessible and definitely better than other hostels. The rooms are clean and large! The only downside is that the walls are thin. The food at the hostel is not bad but with Chunxi just around the corner it is best to eat elsewhere. Nevertheless I enjoyed my stay!

An excellent base for getting around Chengdu”

The hostel is just a few blocks walk from Exit E1 of Chungxi Road Station. From Exit E1, cross the zebra crossing just across the exit (no need to turn left or right). After around 2 minutes walk, you will see a mini park at your left where people play pingpong. Turn left at the street right at the corner and immediately you will see a fruit store in front of a market. The hostel is just beside the fruit store. The hostel is really value for money for such a premium location. The staff were all young and speaks English excellently. There is no breakfast but a wide selection of Westerns food can be ordered from the menu. Tour desk is also available for both Chengdu and Tibet. Overall, I will definitely stay again at this hostel when I go back to Chengdu.

Great staff and location. Guest vary. ”

I stayed her when I first moved to China just below two years ago. Staff was friendly then and continue to be so. The rooms vary from good to bad only by location. Too close to lobby and it WILL be loud. Too close to the stairs leading to the roof and it WILL be loud. Many foreigners have no respect of surrounding rooms and tend to just be loud. But the establishments rooms themselves are kept nice and clean and have been recently renovated since my last stay. It’s right to the metro line 3/2 which is also on Chunxi Road. Huge for brand name shopping with a theatre in the IFS (panda building). One metro away from Tianfu Sqaure, looks great at night for all the lights. Highly recommend this hostel.

Cheap, clean, good staff

After days of communication failure cos most Chinese people don't speak English, it was a real relief when I could talk to the hostel staff perfectly. The hostel looks very nice, clean and gives a feeling a leisure. Very close to Chunxi road, the shopping centre of Chengdu. Tips: If you want to book a tour to Leshan and Emeishan, it will be better to ask other tour agencies than the hostel. The hostel offered like RMB900 to the place, while it only cost me about RMB700 with Travel service

Friendly staff, awesome rooms, but slow WIFI”

Clean and comfortable rooms, staff speak good English, very popular with backpackers

The only bad thing was the WIFI was horrendously slow and kept dropping out. This was very disappointing and I knew other guests were equally annoyed. It was difficult to plan our sightseeing trips without WIFI. However, the staff are very friendly, spoke good English and helped us plan our Chengdu visit. Location is close to Chunxi Rd Metro station and a 20 minute walk east from Tianfu Square. Also only 10 minute walk north of Xin Nan Men Bus Station. I would recommend to others.

Great social place, excellent location, friendly staff”

Booked this as it's been ages since I'd stayed in a hostel like setting (although I stopped short of booking a shared room!) and have had my fill of boring 5-star hotels throughout the region and in China. As expected, I managed to strike up really interesting conversations with the staff and an inspirational 79 year-old retired schoolteacher from Seattle who was traveling alone in China. Love these chance encounters and this is the type of place where they can happen. Single room was clean and the bar/lounge area was a nice place to unwind although like many places in China, the wifi could be improved. Food from the kitchen was also really decent and reasonably priced. Would stay here again.

Small but comfortable, ”

Fast Wifi, Near Shopping Area,

We stayed in Traffic Inn (TI) and Flipflop (FF) on different days. To compare both of them in details: 1)Location- TI is just beside one of the main bus station in Chengdu, which allow transition to many other destinations such as JiuZhai Valley, KangDing, Mt. Emei etc. Save the hassle to make ways to the bus station early in the morning, as most of the long distance destinations are schedule very early in the morning. However, bus stop & subway station is a bit far away. FF is centrally located near Chunxi shopping area, easier access to restaurants, subway station and bus stop. 2)Rooms- TI is big & spacious. Better sound-proofed wall than Flipflop. In FF, u can even hear the next door toilet flushing sound. 3)Bathroom- TI has separated dry and wet area, provides toiletries. In FF, it's very small, weird smell but still clean, don't provide refillable toiletries. 4)Rooms facilities- TI has big table, mirror hang on the wall, bright lighting, clothes hanging bar near the window, sofa. FF has more colorful wall, more comfortable bed but very limited furnitures. 5)Environment - TI has more foreigners, less local chinese, more old-fashioned, more classical, more quiet and calm. FF has more local chinese, more youngsters, more fashionable and energetic, but sometimes can be a bit noisy. 6)Wifi- TI wifi service definitely needs a major upgrade! Very slow and inefficient, unable to access website smoothly. FF wifi is excellent! 7)Building appearance- TI needs huge painting job with the building as most corners are full of dusts and molds.

Hostel is 50m away in front of restaurant and next to a wet market n fruit stall. Currently you can see renovations on buildings nearby. Take lift to 3 floor.

Staff were friendly and helpful. cons: don't recommend ordering from the kitchen, it took forever (waited for an hour I think they forgot my order) mediocre food for not so cheap prices, better off getting food nearby. No wifi in rooms only the lounge. if you have a room on the same floor as the lounger, it may be a little noisy. Request a room away from the lounge if you're a light sleeper.

Location, Friendly and helpful staff, Atmosphere

I absolutely loved the design of the lounge of the Hostel. It had a very welcoming atmosphere, especially seeing people from all over the world just chillin out there. It was very very convenient to get to, considering its very near the train station. The staff were all very helpful in helping you plan your activities. The hostel also offers packages for tourists who are going with no plans, and they would be glad to arrange it for you. They can even help you arrange for transport to places (if there are sufficient people). The only annoying issue I had was the Wifi which was very very weak in the rooms, so maybe that's a reason why people hang out in the lobby/lounge. Wifi worked better for me on the laptop than on my phone.
