Keep coming back here as have everything I want while visiting Chengdu. Near to plaza with supermarket, food outlets if want a break from chinese food. Yoyo great on reception , experienced and added an extra night to my stay in no time at all. Thanks see you again soon
nice garden chillout area, close to metrostation, beds have curtains and bathroom in the dorm. All in all a good place to stay.
Really nice. Cool English speaking staff. Reasonable prices. I had a really nice stay.
The staff and the garden was good but the rooms are very awful, smelling bad and humid. There was No sunshine in the rooms and you can see insects or some other creatures on your bed while sleeping and mosquitoes also possible.. I don't recommend anyone to stay there..

I had a great time in Hello Chengdu Hostel. The location was near few bus stops. The staff was very helpfull and nice. After two weeks of eating noodles and rice for breakfast I had a chance to eat very tasty muesli in the morning. I would stay there again.
I stayed in a private room so I cannot judge about the dorms. The staff's english can be improved a lot. But the place is nice with the garden, the common areas are good. There is water refiling and there is also a wide selection of DVD's that you can watch. It's easy to go here from the bus station with another bus.
amazing garden, big lockers in the rooms, helpful staff, close to thr supermarket (getting things without bargaining :-)))) even there is a big bar and garden, the atmosphere wasnt so much fun, maybe i was just unlucky that not many people stayed at the same time...
it seems to me all the hostels in Chengdu are amazing
Lovely gardens and friendly staff. We very much enjoyed our stay here. The hostel is somewhat out of the way, so we did end up taking a lot of taxis (bus routes are also available). The food was just okay and overpriced. But, overall, we would definitely stay here again if we were in Chengdu.
This hostel ticked all the boxes for what a hostel should be. I couldn't give any area an excellent but it is a good overall hostel and I would recommend it. It looks like much needed maintenance is taking place.

I had a wonderful stay at your hostel! Best welcome to the country I could have imagined. Thank you!
Though the Hello Chengdu Hostel has changed hands recently, it still retains enough of its previous charm to warrant high ratings. The staff are friendly and knowledgable, rooms clean and well designed, every traveler comfort thought of, and - best of all - puppies and kittens roam the large outdoor areas of gardens and terraces. Overall, still an exceptional bang for your buck and a needed respite in an energetic city.
Nice Hostel, comfortable bed (however if you are in the upper bed it is not so easy to come down), big room, bathroom with window. Staff excellent, location good, food good. I liked the garden and the terasses very much. Would come back here.
quick set of good points. The garden is beautiful. Bar/reception staff are friendly. I met fun people staying here. They let me store my bag while climbing Emie. Ask and they will happily write any directions ect in Chinese for you (Useful for taxi drivers and bus station ticket offices). Ask and they will offer advise on food and places to eat. They will book tickets for you very efficiently, Though I didn't use them as I had a strict intinary I saw that they do offer a large range of tours.
Perfect hostel! Very helpfull staff, great atmosphere. A lot of helpfull informstion. Cheap bycicle rent and a nice coffee bar on the corner of the street (rosa's cafe, turn right at the hostel till end of the street en cross the street there). The hostel has good food en cheap beer. You could stay here easily for a couple of days to relax!
The room size is great with sofa and enclosed balcony overlooking the garden area and the bed in the big double room is huge. You even get a bathroom for children with half size everything! There is a great variety of spaces you can use e.g DVD room, reading area, bar etc and the outside garden area is great.
The hostel itself is great, the biggest I've ever been to, with a nice chill out area, table tennis, snooker, bar, etc. The price is good and the connection with downtown also, as frequent buses stop nearby. Anyway, the fact of finding 2 roaches in the room was not a good surprise.
Great hostel with awesome big garden! friendly staff :)
