So far this is the best hostel we have stayed in (after 1 month in China). We stayed here twice, once in a twin private room, then again in a 6 bed dorm. Both times we found the rooms really clean and comfortable, toothbrushes, slippers, soap and lockers were provided. There is also room for hanging washing on a terrace....

First room we had was not made up. Second room we had have a very strong cigarette smell. Nothing positive at all to comment. Hostel side on the contrary is cheaper, nicer place for communal hangout and rooms generally basic and fine.

We only stayed here for one night because it is very close to the main bus station in Chengdu so perfect if you are venturing to Jiuzhaigou, Mt Emei etc. it was simple but clean and all you needed it to be really. Would recommend staying here.

I can only second the good ratings that have been posted so far. The location is very convenient, just next to the long distance bus station from where you can not only travel to all sights around Chengdu, but also to multiple destinations within China. The room was well-priced, clean and convenient, the shared facilicities were very well taken care...

The Traffic Inn is directly at the Xinanmen Bus Station, which makes it ideal if you're travelling by bus. The airport bus stops just a ten minute walk away from here.

I stayed at the Traffic Inn for 2 weeks while participating in a Sichuan cooking course. The accommodations are quite basic, but the staff does a great job of keeping things clean, and the overall atmosphere is quite enjoyable, with lots of friendly folks coming and going. The hostel staff was great--some of them speak good English and are quite...

All the Traffic Inners hold the motto “be candid group, be helpful guide, be local friends”, and we’d like welcoming all the travelers and backpackers to chillax in our new “home”. You hold the votes for us because we have several highlights:Highlight 1: TransportationWenshu Monastery: within 10 minutes walking. Wenshu Monastery is one of the most famous Buddhist temple in Chengdu, with more than one thousand years’ history. Around this historical spot, a Buddhist cultural pedestrian would be great attraction for most travelers.Tianfu Square is 2 metro stops awayRenmin Park is 3 bus stops awayChunxi Road is 4 bus stops awayGreen Ram Temple is 5 bus stops awayNorth Train Station is 2 metro stops awayEast Train Station is 9 metro stops awayXinnanmen Bus Station is 5 bus stops away, plus we provide free minivan every morning (7:00-7:30) to take you to Xinnanmen Bus StationHighlight 2: Local ServicesBig supermarket within 5 minutes walking (420 meter)Many banks and ATM within 5 minutes walking (260 meter)Famous 24 hours chain stores within 3 minutes walking (180 meter)Traditional prime food court within 10 minutes walking (850 meter)Traditional raw food market within 5 minutes walking (460 meter)Highlight 3: Facilities of Our HostelTraffic Inn is absolutely not a place only provide bed.
