Double Room was very clean and comfortable although a little small. Staff was always smiling and nice. We wanted to eat something twice, but the kitchen was closed. On the third day we then had a very good and convenient breakfast. Common areas are quite spacious and nice.

We took the metro to get there, but the hostel is far away from the metro station... There is a bus station, but when you arrive in a city you don't know, if you don't speak chinese, it is quite impossible to find out at which station you have to get off.

The staff here are excellent. I was the only traveler there, so not very social. The hostel is a good 20-25 minute walk from the metro and there aren't many places to eat withn minutes walking. There was no seperate kitchen as mentioned and the games room was int he basement and smelt of mould. The food there was a bit overpriced However the lobby area was comfy and clean and good wi-fi..

Sturdy bunks with locker included, lots of nice common space, decent wifi, good location close to bus stop, western and squatty toilets available. The bottom bunks had a curtain for privacy but not the top bunks for whatever reason, haha. Strange smell in my female dorm otherwise clean. Breakfast can be made from 10 on unless you order ahead. Nice staff, one girl even went out with me to help me get a phone top up card nearby :).

I believe each traveler has their own list of requirements whilst frequenting hostels (i.e.: location, staff, cleanliness, etc.). Nova Hostel in Chengdu exceeded all of my requirements and then some. I stayed at a total of 3 hostels in Chengdu and Nova was my favorite for many reasons. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable; always willing to help you whenever they can and many times going out of their way to help! Also, it is very clean and has a relaxing environment.

Thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Atmosphere felt like home, had a lot of fun with the staff and other travelers. The common room was really comfortable and supplied with WiFi, also the place was overall pretty clean. Stayed more than I originally planned to and would definitely stay here again if I come back to Chengdu.

Amazing food at the hostel! Although 2 out of 3 mornings their cook did not show up which meant no amazing breakfast. They clean the bathrooms every hour! So it was always clean. Nice movie room downstairs away from the dorms so it's not loud. All in all great hostel.

This hostel was having renovations when were were there so there was no food and it was quite noisy at times. However the room and bathroom were good and clean, and we were able to stay an extra night when we asked. The best thing about this place was the staff, as we wanted bus tickets to Jiuzhaigou which after a few attempts we did, however they were to the wrong bus station so the staff ended up going to the bus station and changing them for us for no extra cost, which was very helpful Thanks

The room was very nice and clean, the staff was really friendly and helpful in every situation and all of them could speak english. There are many shops, banks and restaurants in the surrounding area. The beautiul Wenshu Yuan Monastery is just a 15 minute walk away. All in all it was a very nice and pleasent stay and if we have the chance, we would stay at Nova's again !
