      This seems like a humble place but the atmosphere is just perfect for where we are and what we are doing. Great little bar delightful food and lovely staff. I would definitely stay here again :)

      We stayed at Sim's Cozy Garden Hostel after reading some really great things and we must say everything we read is true. Sim's is a top budget stay. It has a great cheap bar and restaurant and the staff are amazingly helpful. They helped us sort out train tickets, day trips and fixing our mobile there is nothing any of them wouldn't go out of their way to do for us. The free map they provide is more like an encyclopaedia a bit like WikiTravel very useful if at times a little out of date or plain wrong. With valuable info on bus routes and restaurants to name a few it's a great guide to Chendgu. The only negative with Sims is the location is slightly isolated and unfortunately the tourist bus 902 which used to run past the hostel has been cancelled. This means everything has to be reached by foot or local bus which is an experience in its own right. The metro is currently under construction and when finished will put Sim's right back on the map. The best hostel in Asia so far.

      Our room was nice and spacious, comfortable bed and had a good tv. Sims had great food and even better place to hang out! Watch out for their trivia nights! Amazing place to meet people. Location is not too close to town but you can always hire a taxi or take a bus to places. Fun!

      The hostel itself is okay, the rooms are basic and a little dirty, but this must be the most popular hostel in all of Chengdu. It was packed full of backpackers from all over the world, many of whom were organising their trips to Lhasa and Tibet. They serve great food in their restaurant and the staff were helpful with trying to organise the next part of my trip. It isn't the easiest to get to from the East Train Station though, so look out.

      Sim's is worth staying a little out of the way for. They do an excellent job of providing everything a traveler needs, including tour and transport booking, laundry services, western food, storage, DVDs and a community environment. The dorms and privates are all clean and comfortable.

      Excellent hostel with a comfortable atmosphere, friendly staff and lots of facilities. We stayed over 14 nights here and Chengdu proved to be a great location for tours to the Giant Buddha, Jiuzhaigou, Qingchengshan and the Panda park. Room was spacious, clean and reasonably priced. Would recommend to anyone!

      Amazing staff and nice atmosphere ! We met a lot of nice backpackers from all around the world and had a lot of fun! Definitely a haven of peace compared to the busy and noisy city of chengdu. Great choices of activities (panda tour!) and also the tibet tours !!!! We ve stayed in more than 30 hostels around the world and this one if in the top 3 !!
      Would definitely Recommend !!!!!

      Le personnel est super sympa. Il fournit toutes les informations dont vous pourriez avoir besoin.
      Il y a quatre machines à laver pour faire sa lessive soi-même ou alors demander à la réception qu'on la fasse pour soir. On peut également emprunter des DVDs pour se faire une petit séance tv dans la chambre (eh oui, chaque chambre est équipée d'un lecteur dvd).
      On trouve également table de billard, ping-pong, baby-foot, fléchettes.
      On mange très bien au restaurant de l'hôtel et les prix sont corrects.

      This place is fantastic as are the staff that work there from the reception to the cleaners all very happy to chat and to help out with a good knowledge of English and their City. The double room we had was large with onsuite, tv,ac and DVD player, all rooms are non smoking but they have smoking rooms on everyfloor with fans to get rid of all the smoke as well as filtered cold and hot water so that you can make drinks (coffee and English tea being expensieve in China). The tour desk again most helpfull with any enquiry you have and of course booking onward travel. I would recommend this to anyone.
