“Good for backpackers”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

Stayed 2 nights here before setting off to ya an city. Near to xin nan men station and the staffs are friendly. The food they served taste nice and not expensive. The eating area is very cosy, tv and games are available too. There are 2 common bathrooms & toilets on each floor and a balcony for you to hang your clothes after washing. Free wifi as well. Generally a nice stay :)

Stayed November 2013, travelled with friends

Stayed for two weeks while attending cooking school in Chengdu. It is well located and very clean. The staff are very friendly, speak and understand English very well. The map they have and their knowledge is very useful. Would stay again for sure.

The hotel is very central, the staff very helpfull (they bought us the tickets for jiuzhaigou in advance and helped us to plan the trip). It is perfect for a backpacker in China. We slept in the dorms and we liked it.

Whilst my agent had booked me into (the bland)Traffic Hotel (which is directly opposite) I spent my time (& money) at the Inn - great staff who spoke excellent English & dispensed sensible advice.

If (& when) I come back to Chengdu, I will stay at the Traffic Inn

We decided to stay here as we need to take the bus from Xinnanmen bus station to Jiuzhaigou in the morning.

Verdict : Very happy with the condition and service. We had a pleasant stay. Excellent and worth every yuan..:)

The room was basic but clean. Even the sharing bathrom was surprisingly clean. (The room with ensuite bathroom were all fully booked).

The location is very strategic - 5 mins walk to the bus station. Few eatery places and convenience strores nearby. Near main road - easy to get taxi. 30mins walking distance to tourist spots.

Staff - efficient, helpful and reliable. Helped us to buy the bus tickets at very last minute notice and arranged for airport pickup and panda tour.

Great communication among them - no confusion over our itinerary, request, add-ons.

Free map with English and Chinese wordings - a very useful accessory indeed.

And the wifi works!

However, it can be noisy when doors are opened, or when other traveller passes by to use the bathroom.

While the rooms were fairly standard for a hostel the helpfulness of the staff and cheery atmosphere made the place a really great place to stay. We went on their reasonably priced trip to the panda sanctuary which was well run and very enjoyable, but there are many other trips run out of the hostel. Very importantly there is free air conditioning in each room. They sell good food which comes in enormous portions. We had more fun at this hostel than any other in our 28 day trip.
