Nice area to meet others, nice location, decent value for money. Beds in the dorm I slept in were just a thin 5-10 cm foam thing. Rooms felt a bit cramped, hard to be quiet at night. Curtains for beds was a nice touch. Girl at reception did not recommend us to do the Yangtze river cruise and wasnt really helpful at all even though I said we really wanted to go anyway. Ended up going to Chongqing and booking there (cruise was excellent). All in all an ok experience.

Friendly and helpful staff, spoke english. Location perfect. I wrote some emails and the answered so quick. I did two tours, the opera-tour (150 Yuan) was good, the Panda and Leshan tour I don't recommend. It was to expensive for what you got (almost 500 Yuan). The driver was 40 min delayed, so we had less time to see the Pandas. But the Pandas were so cute. But do it on your own. The tour to Leshan was nice but instead for two hours we stayed only a short time there (only boat, no entry).

I believe I became sick from here through some of their ice. So I had to cancel my cuddle with the Pandas then I could not get in the next day so had to miss out. The tour from the hostel to the Pandas was terrible. The guide could not even speak English so we found nothing out about the Pandas, we should get our money back. The staff seemed friendly enough and the facilities were good. Our trip to Chengdu was to cuddle the Pandas so I was very disappointed. Not good for foreigners

Clean and nicely decorated place. Lots of food around, but the hostel already has a lot of food on the menu. A very good atmosphere for meeting people as the common area is nicely furnished.

It is perfectly located. Staff is super helpful. Food was good. The rooms are nice and clean. Chengdu is a beautiful city, I would love to stay there again. The internet connection was good. They had good group plans like bicycle rides, dumpling party and stuff like that, making easier to make friends. Over all perfect place to stay. And the best breakfast in China! fruit eggs tea marmalade it was just a beautiful way to star the day! Nice and quiet place to wake up, you could hear the birds!

Lovely staff and the room had everything I needed and was clean. The tour to the Panda research centre was good value for money too and you have plenty of time to look at at things. Overall a great hostel :) only downside is to be aware that the wifi only works in some rooms and the lobby.

Overall a fine hostel. Not remarkable in terms of cleanliness. The shower in particular was a little alarming as the squatting toilet was beside the showers...thus every time I showered, I worried about falling into the toilet. The kitties and doggy at the hostel were super cute but felt they could be better taken care of. There were many facilities available for entertainment ie pool table etc, but the atmosphere was not really sociable.

Great staff! Apparently some of them are specialized in things like planning trips, and they are really good at it. The only downside is that they don't have English-speaking guides so, apart from the panda tour, we decided to travel to Leshan and Emeishan on our own. They provided good directions, but they didn't warn us about the fact that the last bus to go up Mount Emei departs at 16:00, so that was a lost afternoon.

Well located nice clean quiet hostel. Staff were helpful when asked. Although if you're looking to meet a backpacker crowd here you might be dissapointed.

I have been to many hostels and hotels... and this is one of the better ones. Very clean, convenient, and a great price with many activities to participate in. Side note: if you want see the opera performance, make sure that you contact the hotel early (I was told 3 month in advance to arrange it).

Hi~~Thanks for your great review, we really appreciated it. By the way, you don't need to arrange the Sichuan opera 3 months ago, normally, you can book it with us 1 or 2 days in advance, thanks :) Have a nice day~

Excellent service and staff were more than willing to assist with any questions. Given some tours require a minimum no. to go, would be good given they have 3 hostels which are linked if they could pool tours together, as I missed seeing on of my attractions as the tour wasn't running at my hostel on day I wanted to go due to lack of numbers. Possibly there may have been people at other 2 hostels in same situation which then would be made minimum people.

The staff were brilliant, very kind and helpful, and the whole atmosphere was very relaxing and inviting. Maybe the only negative was I wish the lockers would be big enough to fit my backpack, but that's a very small complaint

I loved this place! We were so sick of being i China and just had to stay here for 3 days before leaving for another hostel in Chengdu (pre-booked), and we should just have stayed here! They made our days really good! Thank you!
