Mr. Panda's staff speak excellent English so it's very easy to communicate and they were always very helpful. The hostel was in a great location for getting around. The panda tour was great and I recommend it. Mr. Panda's owner was also very generous, inviting me to share a local Sichuan dinner and he helped me to arrange transport to the airport.
Staff were very helpful and made sure we had a good time. Take the hostel's tour to see the pandas—you must get going early (like 7 a.m.) or you'll see no pandas, and the hostel's tour (man in a van) will get you there to see 'em. Wifi signal could be stronger (like most hostels). I trust Mr. Panda for my Chengdu travels. :D
Nice stay in this hostel! For 100 yuan, we got a twin bedroom with big bathroom, very good value for money. We took part in the sichuan opera tour they organize and the staff told us that it was absolutely impossible to find a cheaper ticket by ourselves (they asked for 150 yuan). But the people setting next to us in the theater told us they only paid 80 for theirs... But the opera was a nice experience anyway :)
Mr.Panda is one of the best hostel i have ever been to,their lobbby is warm, cozy, and homelike,which is the tea of bohemian young traveller who have travelled a long and exhausted trip in west part of China,one would find it's a hedonistic paradise. Hot water and strong warm A/C in winter sweep away all your tiredness,A DVD movie with a beer in the lobby makes full relaxed,i would be back in next time to Chengdu definitely！
Hi: I have been in many hostels, but this is one of the best. The staff was very friendly and help us to get some airplane tickets in emergency. Thank you very much Mr. Panda for such memorable stay!!!. Your friends from Mexico.
Met great people here from all over. Great atmosphere and plenty of of people to chat with.
This is an excellent hostel and one of the best I have ever stayed in. It is definitely the best hostel I have been to in China. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The atmosphere within the hostel is very sociable and a nice place to relax. However there is one small issue with this hostel the rooms are not cleaned everyday. I notice that the bin in the room was not emptied and the floor not cleaned everyday. Other than this it is a fantastic hostel and MR Panda is a legend.
I really enjoyed staying at Mr. Panda Hostel. The Staff is very friendly and can speak some english. The rooms are standard Chinese Hostel rooms. I recommend staying in the family 4-bedrooms if you travel in a group. The hostel organizes trips to Leshan, Jiuzhaigou, Panda Reservate and Tibet. The Tibet-tour has a very good value for money and I can absolutely recommend it. We stayed in winter; like everywhere in China it is cold. AC in the room is good but shower for the dorms doesn't have AC
The room was fine andthe staff generally nice, the dumpling making was short but they were delicious! It was close to the main square. We booked this hostel though only because it said on Hostelworld that they accept credit cards but when we got there they said it was 'broken' at the moment, though u could tell it hadn't been used in years. It's fine if they don't want to accept cc but they should change that in HW so people don't expect differently.
Good rooms, good food, good service! A really nice place to stay and the staff looked after us well. Forgot to collect our deposit when we left but mr panda has kindly agrred to keep it for us on our return - very helpful, look forward to staying again!
Great little hostel, good tours offered, good location in the city.
We actually changed our hostel to Mr Panda hostel due to the location of the other hostel in Chengdu that we stayed at. The staff were very friendly, very helpful without being too overbearing which is exactly what you want. The room was clean with a really good soft mattress, hot water and towels provided as well. We would seek out Mr Panda hostel and stay here again if we ever get to go back to Chengdu. Thank you very much for making our stay enjoyable.

A very cool hostel held by nice and helpful people. Very easy to find ,great tours organized (I advice travelers to do the panda center tour).
Excellent location, metro close by, no complaints, Staff very helpful, wi fi signal very weak??
Improve your wifi please! Your staff made the place much better! Also, please clean up the mold in the rooms. Thanks.
Nice hostel and good location. The double room was quiet and clean. Staff helpfull even if you are visiting by yourself without booking the hostel tour.
Absolutely a great hostel, very friendly and helpful staff, great atmosphere and loads of facilities. We give Mr. Panda hostel and staff a well deserved 100%.
The map the hostel has created for exploring Chengdu is excellent. However, a bit more transparency as to how to go about excursions independently (rather than in a guided tour group) would have been appreciated. For example, we wanted to go to a Sichuan opera on our own, but were given very little and confusing advice as to how and where to go - apart from the opera the hostel itself sponsors.
The staff were reallyhelpful and accomodating! I've already raved about this hostel to my traveling friends!
