Following 'lonely planet' 's advice, we booked this huge hostel. The big jungle like garden gives you an excellent escape from the city. They have a lot of facilities like a travel service, dvd room and an excellent restaurant with an extensive both chinese as western menu. Also they organize nice theme parties (we were there during Halloween, although we...

I had stayed at this hostel many times. It's a good place for transit to other places of interest in Szechuan. This hostel was formerly called Sim's Cozy Garden Hostel and was started by Sim and Maki. Now it still retained its attractive points namely a nice garden and courtyard for guests to relax and get together. There is also...

We've started here twice now. Once on the way to jiuzhai and once on the way back. Friendly staff, clean rooms and nice food made this a very pleasant stay. We had a small double room first. It was small, but clean and comfy. The larger room the second time was only 20 kuai more, but huge, well decorated and...

We have been in Hello Chengdu for four nights and we were very enjoyed our stay there. Rooms are clean and nice. The stuff is always happy to help and all of them speaks fluent English. אחלה הוסטל, צוות ההוסטל נחמד מאוד וכולם מדברים אנגלית ויכולים לעזור בכל בקשה ושאלה. המיקום אומנם לא מרכזי אבל נמצא קרוב מדי לתחנת אוטובוס...

I stayed here a few nights. My main objective of coming to Chengdu was to hug a panda. I asked the reception she told me that it was now impossible and that option isn't available anymore. She then went on to pitch her tour they do through the hostel. I then went online and found a tour to hug a...

Good location, 20 min by bus to the city centre. The rooms are small but comfy, and bathroom. There are not tv in all rooms :(, but we went to Chengdu not for tv. The inner yard is very pleasant, good for relax. The staff is very helpful can organize almost everything. Absolutely recommend

BIG hostel, but quite empty when we were there. Helpfull staff. Although there are no lockers, the room is opened by an electronic key. I liked that all the beds had their own curtains. Bathroom ensuite which was cleaned daily. Nice garden and terrace seating on the ground floor (but empty with no people). They provide an excellent map to...

Seems the Hostel has seen better times and the infrastructure shows signs for renovation needs. It was clean and the service was good. Still a good place for backpackers with low budget. I am sure there are places with a more charming environment.

After a few days of non-stop travel it was a great comfort to reach this backpacker gem with it's lush garden and simple, clean, pretty and comfortable rooms. Staff is helpful and speak good English. The hostel runs a pretty ambitious travel booking service. We ended up staying a third night because we couldn't tear ourselves away.

I really liked this hostel, really cozy and relaxing environment. Bar and restaurant is nice, have really tasty food. The staff speaks good English and give you helpful directions to the destination you would like to go.

“If you're willing to pay a bit more, get a private en-suite room. This is especially critical if you have special needs that could interfere with other hostel mates. The lift is wonderful for access to the upper floors.”

“You can choose a room that fits your needs, i.e., I had selected a 6-bedded room initially because my mother deserved more privacy. Once checking in, Georgia correctly &professionally assessed our needs and we received a twin-bedded room that had since become available.”
