Best staff at a hostel I've stayed in, a little far from the city centre but a great place for exploring around chengdu and close to the subway. Great atmosphere laid back and really clean shared bathrooms.
Hostel itself was fantastic! Very friendly and homely! There were a few issues with food orders but can't win them all!!!
Mix hostel is a really cozy, beautiful spot. Although the hostel is relatively close to the north train station, it's far away from most of Chengdu's attractions. For the number of dorm rooms here, they should have more showers. Every night after 21:00 there was a cue for the showers. Despite those inconveniences I had an enjoyable stay here.
Dxcellent place to stay!!
Overall the hostel is clean and the staff is friendly. Wifi is great in the lobby but wasn't so great in the rooms. They advertised free breakfast but told us it was canceled a few weeks ago. We booked a Jiuzhaigou tour with the hostel and they put us with a local chinese group. Told us we would go to two "shopping locations" but we ended up going to FIVE and were extremely unhappy. Also they charged us 950kuai when others on the tour paid ~400. Definitely don't use the tours provided.

We enjoyed our stay at the hostel. We booked for 2 nights and we stayed 4! The hostel has everything you need as a traveller: friendly and knowledgable staff, clean facilities, warm shower, quiet, nice commun area, good wifi, washing and drying qrea for the clothes... it was great. Location is perfect, next to the metro and frequent buses to town center. If I come back to Chengdu, I would stay there.
Great atmosphere, nice seating area on the ground floor and on the top floor around the laundry hanging area. Location convenient near the Wen Shu temple and short walk to metro station. Bathrooms seem to be cleaned frequently and the staff are very helpful. Wifi was occasionally spotty but that is to be expected in China. A little bit of a hassle having to go upstairs to use the showers, one of the room's doors was also quite difficult to open. Otherwise highly recommend staying at Chengdu Mix!
The hostel is really good! one of the best i've been to in China! Very nice Staff, beautiful house, just really good! BUT don't book the Jiuzhaigou-trip from this hostel!!!!!!!!!! You'll end up paying about 300RMB more than other guests, you have to travel with a chinese tourist group and listen to an awful tourist guide, the food is not enough and kind of disgusting and they want to force you to buy stuff and spend money for extras (we didn't and you won't even get, what you're promised)
Good, quiet location, easily accessible by buses (2 km from the center). The staff speaks good English and is very helpful. The rooms are cozy and clean. Hostel is definitely recommended.
The place was clean and safe, but nothing special. No point ordering food there. The location was ok.
This is a great hostel if you're looking to save a little money without sacrificing atmosphere and convenience. The staff was very helpful, I met some great people who were traveling through, and, for the most part, everything worked really well. I saw a few cockroaches near the eating areas at different points in my trip, but the hostel seemed to be kept very clean overall. I would stay again and recommend it to anyone looking to save some cash and stay near the food/sites/etc. by Wen Shu Yuan.
It was a really nice hostel. The accommodation is very good and the showers are glorious. To visit a lot of things its pretty far either by bus or tour. Thats because its not close in the city. On friday we had free all you can eat dumplings which were really good. The people and staff were pretty cool as well. Im sad to hear they are closing the bar but the bar man and the bar itself was amazing for a friday night chill with the others in the hostel. It was fairly clean and good value.
The hostel was very good and comfortable. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, explaining the different options and trips that were available. It was a good experience, I'll definitely come back next time!

Ex location helpful staff clean and good meals at reasonable prices Highly recomended
Amazing hostel! The staff is nice and very helpful. The dorms are comfortable and the common bathrooms clean. There are several nice restaurants nearby. I definitely recommend this hostel.
Staff was amazing, Hann was so friendly and helpful
The location of the hostel is very easy to access to many places within and around Chengdu by public transportation means such as metro, bus and airport shuttle bus. The hostel is so cozy, nice and quiet. It has its own characteristic. The staff are very friendly, helpful, always give you all the information you need, response you promptly.
The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere and decoration were very welcoming. Facilities were good enough, including stable wifi, hair-dryer, locker, padlock and etc. The location is perfect because it is close to the wenshu monastery and the renmin north rd station, and the bus stop for bus to the airport. If you want to be closer to the center of town, I would recommend their sister hostels, which are Flipflop and Lazybones.
Very good atmosphere, located out of the way from the city centre but very nice staff and room.
