Stayed here for 4 nights in January and there are no negatives. The bar area is great and really sociable - we spent our last evening here playing mahjong with an international group. Food is good, and the complimentary breakfast is a nice bonus. We stayed in a twin room and it was very clean, as were the shower and... More

Miss this place so much! Free pick up from train station, amazing food, good clean accommodation! Staff and family very friendly but not overbearing. Chill out area in the back was the scene of many nights laughing, playing games and drinking before going out to experience the surprisingly good Chengdu nightlife. Perfect location! Internet access, excursions and most importantly trustworthy... More

Unfortunately when we first left the metro station, we turned the wrong way and ended up back at the main train station! Their directions say to look for a big American (Amway?) store on the corner, which no longer seems to exist, so that was a bit confusing... The hostel is great. We were on the top floor with a...

Really great place to stay. Amazing staff - super helpful. Beautiful hostel, comfortable and clean rooms. Great facilities, excellent area, and the food is pretty nice and super cheap. Would highly recommend for a super cheap but awesome stay.

Very good place as starting point to explore Chengdu's surrounding. Gives good advise and can organize, for a price, pretty much everything you'd want in that part of China, from Tibet expedition to simple half-day with pandas. Simple and clean rooms, good affordable food and nice common room. Huge reserve of books for swap. Special thanks to Karen and Vivian... More

When I stayed here the hostel was very dirty, there were spills on the tables that were not cleaned up for the duration of my stay (3 days). Toilets were horrendously smelly, and showers dirty. Access to the hostel is not ideal either, being located further away from the city centre than most hostels, and difficult to find. The main... More

If you are after a five star hotel then this place is not for you. However if you want clean (but basic) rooms, friendly staff, good location and excellent travel advice then this is the place for you. We paid less than NZ$20 for a budget twin room with shared bathroom which was all we wanted for one night after... More

I really like this hostel! The directions given were great except when coming out of metro exit D and see Wanda mall, go the opposite way on the same side of street. Do not walk towards mall. They all spoke pretty perfect English. Very helpful with bus and metro info even when we were trying to public transport to places... More
