My group travelled to Jiuzhaigou,Leshan, Emeishan, Yading & Daocheng from Chengdu by public express bus. Hostel's location is within 10 mins walk from central bus station, very convenient. Metro station is near too. As compared to hostels in Jiuzhaigou, Songpan, Daocheng & Kanding at same price range, I feel Flipflop had provided much more in term of its facilities &... More

The room we had was very smelly (smelt damp). Everything else was fine and cheap but the smell was really bad. We though about not staying our second night and we did all we could to avoid spending time in the room! We had asked to move room but unfortunately no spare rooms at the time. They did try to...

After all the raving reviews, I guess I was expecting a bit more. The room was not particularly clean or comfortable, the food was not that great and some of the staffmembers were quite unfriendly. However, it is nicely located and for the price you pay it is ok.

We loved our stay at FlipFlop hostel. It's fairly well located and the staff were all really friendly and helpful with great English. Wifi worked great and the hostel is kept clean. There is a kitchen which serves 7am to 10pm a selection of western and Chinese all reasonably priced. They run daily trips to the pandas and other places... More

We had a private room with two single beds. This was the first place we stayed where the room itself was so pleasant we enjoyed relaxing in it. The people at the desk were very helpful: wrote out addresses to show to taxi drivers. We booked two tours through them (opera and pandas) which were fun and nicely done. The... More

Location is quite convenient within 5-10 minutes walking distance to chunxi subway. Service given was excellent and staff were very friendly. I was sick during stay at Flipflop and there staff was kind enough to ask the cleaner aunty to clean our room later as I was resting in the room. Easy to find food around this area.

A fairly clean hostel for what you pay for. Some minor repairs (screeching doors, a/c that was unresponsive to the remote control but still kept the room fairly cool) would bring this place to 'excellent'. The place is fairly noisy as it is located in a pretty busy area, but it didn't interfere with our sleep much. A lovely lounge... More

Our room was okay but small and dark. The bathroom was small too and had an unpleasant smell, but with the price we paid, can't really complain. The staff was also helpful and lobby was nice. Good neighborhood with many food options. Street market nearby, close to subway and busses. Great location.

We found the staff at FlipFlop to be absolutely amazing and very friendly. When we wanted to go tea picking but no tours were available, they arranged the trip for us, complete with transportation and a staff on location to translate. Staff was patient with our many questions and helped us plan our stay in Sichuan. FlipFlop is a must... More

If you're a light sleeper please reconsider your booking options! The rooms are paper thin and people are so noisy. We had the worse three nights sleep here. The room was okay for what you pay for. The bathrooms was dirty and had someone's left over cherries all over the sink when we arrived. Pretty gross that it wasn't cleaned... More
