WOW! Super central, next by "Chunxi Road" metro station! Great atmosphere and big traveler's lounge! The 3rd hostel after "Mix" and "Lazybones"!

It's 3rd hostel of our hostel group after "Mix" and "Lazybones", Flipflop not only provides all services that other 2 have to offer, but more.

Hostel is located close by "Chunxi Road"-a 100 years old pedestrian district, here is Chengdu's most bustling and dynamic center of downtown. 5 mins relaxing walk to "Chunxi Road" metro station (Line2). Stay here is super convenient and strategic.

Hostel is spotless with a huge traveler's lounge, atmosphere is great, wifi covers all area, cultural activities such like walking tour, cooking class and majiang class are organized every other 2 days, so it's fun to stay here too.

Hostel's front-desk is your information resource, and it's also easy and quick to arrange your tours through our selected travel operators. Cheap and great value.

and more.
