Property Description

The Only Cafe and Backpacker is housed in a 3-storey earthy yellow building with a 70s' Soviet Union style. The Blue and White Porcelain style will leave you a special impression and remind you of some cherished memory of ancient China. It is located in the very spot where is approximately 10 metres from Daxigou Subway Station (Line 2 Exit A). The hostel offers a cup of fresh latte as a welcome drink upon check-in. We offer free WiFi throughout the house.

Guests who are coming from Jiangbei International Airport or North Chongqing Railway Station can take subway Line 3, interchange Line 2(heading Jiaochangkou) at Niujiaotuo Station, and get off at Daxigou Station (leave from Exit A and turn right; our hostel is about 10 meters away from you). For those who are coming from Chongqing Railway Station, Bus 862 can reach our hostel at Daxigou Station with 4 stops and another 2 minutes' walk.

It has everything you want in a good hostel.
So each dormitory in the Only Cafe and Backpacker is fitted with clean bedding. The 24-hour front desk can help you with luggage storage and tour guidance. Guests can enjoy a cup of coffee in the cafe or have some drinks at the bar. Doing some reading in the mini library is also a good choice.
The setup is a little unusual: the square-sized hostel has an open courtyard in the middle, so the place is well-lighted and well-ventilated. On a rainy day an overhang directs water safely into a plant bed.
We have a big and comfortable seating area with a decently stocked bar, pool table and board games. Rooms are comfortable with everything you'd expect and the beds are decent. The place is decked out in some beautiful repaired antique furniture, some of which even can date back to the Qing dynasty. And some cool and nostalgic posters from the 1920's ancient China are dotted around the walls. The whole thing looks fantastic and we would like to share the stories behind it with you.

Surroundings(Food and entertainment):
It only takes a 5-minute walk from our hostel to Chongqing's Great Hall of the People and Three Gorges Museum.
Located near the metro station, it's easily accessible to some tasty noodle, hotpot and local restaurants just around the corner.
At night, you can take a casual walk beside the JiaLing river, enjoy the night view of this amazing city.

    This is an amazing place to stay while in Chongqing. The hostel is located close to many attractions it is very clean and you are going to get even a coffee for free. The stuff is extremely nice and professional. I called the hostel after midnight to check if they can accommodate me the same night, they agreed and waited for me. Tnx a lot for everything best service I ever received while in China.

    Great location right next to a subway stop. Decent rooms with great AC. The bathrooms were very clean and the showers had fantastic water pressure. The staff was incredibly helpful and told us the best places to eat and what we had to see! They also have fantastic coffee. Lovely experience, we would stay here again!

    Wonderful staff and a beautiful hostel. The owner is an amazing guy with love for his guests and his city. They also have the most unique map of their city I've ever seen, fully hand drawn.

    This hostel is literally right below a metro station, so it’s super convenient. Friendly staff (though limited English skills). Some of the common areas and bathrooms could use a good scrubbing.

    It was fine, the beds in the dorms don't have curtains which I don't like. The staff were super nice though and the water cut off midway through our stay so they refunded us for the whole thing and we relocated:)
