I had returned from Chengdu after a 2 night stay in Traffic Inn on 19 & 23 Jun 2012. My friends & I stayed in their 4-bed dorm room that was clean & cosy. Though the toilets & showers are shared facilities, they are clean & well maintain. Their staff are also very friendly & helpful. Their location next to the long distance bus terminal (with services to Jiuzhaigou, etc) is definitely a PLUS point.

Cleaners knock on door to clean room (supposedly private ensuite) at 8am. If you don't answer within a few seconds they just use their key and walk straight in. Then if you don't want to get out of bed to let them clean immediately they don't come back so the room doesn't get cleaned. This spoiled an otherwise OK hostel and for this reason would not go back.

We stayed at Traffic Hotel (2 star) which is next to Traffic Inn Hostel. The Hostel occupies the 2nd floor in the same building as Traffic Hotel. Traffic Hotel rooms have only LAN Internet connection and to receive WIFI we have to go to the 2nd floor lobby area.
The room we stayed is clean, carpet looks old and cupboard has slight musty smell. Bathroom is spacious and clean except the shower tray is old and stained.
Out of curiosity we went to inspect the rooms at the Hostel and found them in better condition than the Hotel's (room rate for double ensuite is the same). We had a Chinese meal at the Hostel cafe and found it to be very expensive. Unlike the Hotel's reception, the Hostel's reception is very helpful. They put up many travel information, tours, and bus guide. Both Hotel and Hostel are next to Sinanmen Bus Station which makes it easy and cheap to travel on your own to Jiuzhaigou and various places. We took a bus to Leshan for 48 yuan per person one way. Close by is a Thai Restaurant and a restaurant that serves goose meat. Nearer to Sinanmen Bus Station you can find many cheap eateries.
Chunxi modern shopping mall is 15 mins walk away.

Free Wifi and/or LAN access everywhere. Nice lounge and outdoor seating. Offers many activities (I didn't use any though). AC double rooms are actually located in adjacent Traffic Inn hotel, which makes them good value for money (no English TV, fridge or safe though; but kettle, slippers and bathroom amenities). Don't miss the local market area right behind the hotel: real local life at local prices.

Room Tip: Go for AC double rooms with own bathroom and window.
