Very Very Very good location, we are in the center of Chengdu near the most famous Peoples Park, and AAAA National Protect Scenic Spot of Chengdu-KUAN LANE. It is very easy to getting around Chengdu by any public transportation from the LOFT.

The 1st and ONLY hostel in Chengdu designed by local artist. The building itself was a former printing factory went bankrupt in 1990s, till 2005 a group of local artist found this building and spent almost 7 months to turn this factory into a super cool hostel, a home away from home for backpackers. If you want to know more about Chengdus art life and underground music, if you want to stay in a hostel with a unique style. Im sure LOFT will the right choice.
