This location was easy to find and in a good spot for getting to the sights of Chengdu. The staff was very helpful. The food from the kitchen was pretty good and convenient. The room was comfortable. The bathrooms were clean. I was very happy with my stay here. It was a great value for the price

This place wasn't too bad. Staff was friendly. Fun atmosphere. Decent food, if ordered from the kitchen. Good tours and advice. Rooms were okay and bathrooms a little dated. Have stayed in better hostels, but have also stayed in much worse.
