Wonderful stay; the staff were very helpful and friendly.
Great location. 2 min walk to tourist bus station and 10 min to Airport shuttle drop off. Rooms are clean and spacious and given that the dorm section is actually a wing of the Traffic hotel you get hotel freebies in the dorms like soap, slippers, tea and towels. Best aspect though is the staff who are friendly, helpful and full of city info. There was one particular girl at reception who was really helpful (and cute!). Thanks so much! Best overall hostel I've stayed at in China
The food is really overpriced and not good at all. I was really surprised at what they served as a "Sichuan dish" which was not like anything I've had in China even though I've ordered the same dish countless times. It looked like it came out of a can or had been microwaved. When I told them I wasn't happy with it, they said "most foreigners" didn't mind it, as if that wasn't insulting or made it okay.
Staff is a not really friendly. The common area is very nice but just seldom people staying there. Atmosphere is not very good. I stayed in a twin room. Everything is simple and really like a dorm but enough for sleeping.
great location right beside bus stop so you can get all the necessary tours in for really cheap. Just don't forget your student card!!! The rooms were spacious, clean and linen was changed regularly. showers were very good. food was poor enough there but there is a street nearby with incredible bbq. The rooms had card key access and lockers for valuables. I am very happy with the place and would stay again.
This is third time i stay in this hostel and like it very much. Stuff is very helpfull, location good, as it placed near bus station and to get thier from airport also very convenient
The hostel's staffs are professional.good english comunication.
One of the strangest places I've ever been! Not all rooms are in the hostel but in the hotel next door. So you don't have only hostelers living next door but also normal hotel guests. And the way to the reception is very long. What's really nice are the clean rooms with lots of space! I'll also recommend the Panda tour! If you're interested in Sichuan Opera don't book the hostel tour, that's more an acrobatic laser show with traces of traditional opera, but I guess, that's everywhere the same.
The internet sucks and the computers are slow and you have to pay for using them. Besides that, it was a great stay and an awesome time at the hostel!
The hostel is very close to Xin Nan Men Bus Station where you can take a bus easily to go to other places ( Mt. Emei City, Jiuzhaigou, etc..) . A worth hostel to stay in Chengdu. Receiptionist speak English well. Room is clean and comfortable.
Best hostel I've stayed at in China for sure. Staff were really friendly, really helpful - one example they helped me get a refund on a flight I had to cancel, phoning a small town travel agent for me because my Chinese wasn't good enough. Really good location, walking distance to a lot of great sights, good and reasonably priced tours through the hostel as well.
The food and common area was excellent. However, the best part of the hostel was the staff their friendliness and helpfulness. Both were probably the best I have ever encountered from remembering my name, after being there for about one hour, to making my food more spicy on their own after I had them do it once. The ability to remember preferences and just general good nature (and helpfulness once again) was second to none. Keep up the great work. I would definitely recommend the place.
The place is really good, everybody in the staff speak english and there are very nice, especialy this girl Loretta. Is close to the metro station and near to the bus station wich is perfect to go to another places and buyvthe tickets. Plus they have tours and many activities.
Very nice hostel. Chengdu is best regarded as a base for daytrips, the hostel is located next to the bus station. Common areas are nice, the staff is friendly, even at night. My room was an old hotel room. It was clean, but lacked the charm of a nice hostel room. Breakfast was very good. Public Bus for the Panda Reasearch Base leaves just in front of the hostel.
Nice place, right next to the bus station which made it very easy to travel, the best part was the super happy staff, I have never encountered such energetic group of girls, they were sweet, funny, spoke great English, no problems communicating with them and the food at the hostel was also very good, the bathroom smelled because it was an old place, but it was in general clean and nice atmosphere.
