Lazy Bones Hostel
There is Mix Hostel and there is Lazy Bones Hostel in Chengdu. They have the same owner. I styed at Lazy Bones HOstel and had a great time there. Staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms are small but clean. I had a single room with private shower. There are also dorms.
The hostel is situated next to a metro-station, which makes exploring Chengduu on your own very easy.
Unique Quality: After staying in many hostels all over Asia and Europe I think Lazy Bones is one of the best experiences. The location is great, near Wenshu Monastery and in walking distance to the central square, Renmin-Park and more.They offer free tours to some places around.
There is a jioazi-making party every friday evening. I had soo much fun!
Lazy Bones is also the ideal place to meet travellers from all over the world. I even met some of my own age (50+). There are also often young Chinese people staying in the hostels, which makes it easy to get into contact with Chinese students.
Directions: Hostel is about 8 mins walk to "Tianfu Square", many major attractions are within walking distance:
1. Mao Statue & Tianfu Square
2. People's Park
3. Wide Lane (Bar & Restaurants Hutong Street)
4. Wenshu (Manjusri) Monastery and Wenshu Folk Street
Little cozy hostel
The hostel is not big but it provides enough facilities for travellers. This is a place where you can meet people very easily maybe because the common area is small. They provide free internet (but always engaged) and free movie room. The bathroom was clean and hot water was sufficient. The staff at the office were very helpful with any informations you need about your travel. Dorm bed was 30yuan for a fan room.
The Mix Hostel is relatively new. When we stayed the staff were so friendly, the facilities were great : book exchange, clean bathrooms, bar, lunches, seating areas, internet and wifi.
The hostel was located about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Chengdu.
We booked a double private room, there are two types of private rooms and one is slightly more expensive that the other. On this occasion we booked the slightly more expensive room and boy were we glad that we did!
Upon check in we discovered that we would not be located in the main hostel building; instead we were placed across the road in a Chinese bank's business style hotel that the Mix rent rooms from! It was pure heaven lol - clean, comfy hotel style rooms with a gorgeous big bathroom, heating, TV and lifts.
you have the option of staying at hostel like accommodations or going to Mix 2 and staying at a hotel for hostel prices...
you can't go wrong with that..... twin room with all the amenities for 120rmb per night...

we were spoiled here... we went to Xi'an after this trip and stayed in filthy hostel near the drum tower... what a disappointment....
Mix offers options and you decide which one you can afford.... I like that...
Unique Quality: Clean....

-provide great city map....

-great massage place nearby....
