One of my favorite places to stay”

This is such a nice place to stay. I have stayed here many times in 2015, and the staff recognized me on my return one year later. Everything about the hostel itself is nice, but I would be wary about traveling to Chengdu (or even China) because the air pollution has been consistently bad since November of 2016 - much longer and MUCH worse than was the case the previous winter. Still, if you are in Chengdu and need a place to stay, definitely stay here at least once. Although this place attracts a lot of foreign travelers, it still gets some Chinese ones as well. During my stay, there were some very rude Chinese travelers who made my stay unpleasant by spitting loudly in the sink. This gross and disturbing behavior soured the memory of my stay, but it is not something I attribute to the hostel itself.

Under Renovation ”

I contacted Chengdu Mix to arrange for our early arrival. Received a response advising that they were currently under renovation, and that they had transferred our reservation to their sister hostel Chengdu Lazybones Posh for same price. So, we did not actually stay at Mix but they took care of us. I would consider Mix on next visit.

Good location, near to everything, 10 minutes walking distance to bus station, which easily access to any places in city including giant panda base. Very clean room, shared bathroom and common area are clean and well maintained too. Just love the common area, very cozy and spacious. Staff are helpful, even a lot of travelers check in and out but they are very attentive to question and answer patiently. Definitely will come back again if going to Chengdu.

Great hostel in underrated Chengdu”

common areas, wifi, location

I liked the place. Got picked up from airport with their service late at night. Not too pricey. Great grounds and common areas in hostel. So many people washing and drying clothes on 3rd floor and lots of people hanging out. Most guests are CHinese students. Frot desk bery helpful with good English. They can book a lot of onward travel or tours. The Panda tour by the hostel seemed a little overpriced so we took a taxi to the Pandas and then a public bus back. Half the price of the hostel tour.

Cleaness, staff, location

We stayed here five years ago and this is our second time. Everything is the same. There's a lovely rooftop garden that you could sit quietly and read. The shared bathroom is located on the third floor but considering it's a small hostel, it's still very convenient. It's also quite near a subway stop, I forgot the name, so it's easy to get around. Over all we love this hostel and we will definitely come back again.

We weren't here for long so can only give a brief view of what we experienced but overall this seemed like a good hostel with helpful staff and good break out areas. Well located with lots of things nearby and the food was good. My only slight negatives would be that a couple of the rooms might be a little noisy, and if you have breakfast included, be warned that it is only up to 19Y which doesn't actually get you much and certainly not a coffee with you food. Would stay again.
