Stayed a total of 6 nights in Lazybones. Hostel in good location as the Metro station “Luomasi” is across the road from the hostel. Tianfu Square [where the famous Mao statute is and just directly across the Square is the famous Kang Shef’s Beef Noodle Restaurant] is one stop away from Luomasi station. Wenshu Monastery complex is also 1 station stop away. Twin room at hostel was quite spacious. However, the air-con cum heater needs cleaning and servicing. The bathroom cum toilet smells rather musty due to the inefficient sewerage system – tried to use our fragrant room spray but this still did not work. Room floors are not cleaned daily – have to inform the reception if cleaning is required; the cleaners just clear the waste paper baskets and replenish the towels daily. Room 203 has water marks on the wall while in Room 213 the window insect screen was torn. Certainly some upkeep and maintenance are required. If you are using the hostel’s computer to surf the internet, it can quite slow; hostel charges 1RMB per 10 minutes. There is a nice and cosy cafe which serves western and local food; quite crowded late at night with players at the snooker table in the cafe. Did not have the opportunity to try the tours from the hostel as all the tour coach drivers in Chengdu were on strike when we were there. One plus side for the hostel is the availability of free hot or cold water from dispensers placed on certain floors. On the whole the staff at the reception was friendly and can understand or converse in English.
