The new location is a bit odd, I don't know why they moved... They moved to an old hotel and a lot of refurbishing was going on when we stayed, so right now not very nice building, but great potential. We had a double room which was still from the old hotel, all horrible soulless business style. Though we had...

The current Traffic Inn has moved from its previous location near the Xinnanmen bus station. It occupies a former chinese-owned hotel on Desheng Road (德胜路). The nearest metro (Wenshu Monastery Station, 文殊站) is about 15-20 mins' walk to its current location or you can take a local bus after alighting at the last stop from the Airport Shuttle bus.

We originally got over the mold, broken window and hole in the roof and got on with our stay until our last night we saw a rat on the top floor just a staircase away from the kitchen and common room. They have just moved in so maybe they'll do some work on it but it needs a lot of...

Traffic Inn has moved far from it's location near the bus terminal. I originally chose it due to its proximity to the bus terminal. Unfortunately I was travelling when they e-mailed to tell me the new location. The new location is now to the north side of the city center. It is quite a walk to the metro station, and...

I was very surprised when I got to my room and found out that they got me a single bed room for the price of a dorm bed! I was very pleased and enjoyed sleeping in the room alone. I wouldnt say it is very near to the Xinnanmen Bus station but they drove us there for free.

Traffic Inn was one of the best hostels we've ever stayed in! The staff were really friendly and accommodating. They offered packages for tourists too and you could leave your baggage there if you plan to go elsewhere-ex. Jiuzhaigou! They spoke English fluently, so that was a plus! Location was also good because it was just beside the Xinanmen Bus...

We stayed one night before getting an early morning bus from Xinnanmen, for us this made the location perfect. The room was clean, comfortable and very good value for money. The staff all spoke good English and were helpful, but not particularly friendly and a bit disorganised - while we waited to check in one group had been overcharged for...

We really liked this hostel and the staff. Location was good. A little walk from the centre, but close to the bus station, which is very convenient if you want to go to Leshan and Emei Shan. Rooms where nice, but make sure you stay in the hostel (not in the hotel, which is next to the hostel).

This hostel really was exceptional - rooms were clean, comfortable and cheap, wifi all over and there was a decent restaurant, and a small shop to buy water, biscuits and pot noodle.

Traffic Inn moved to a more central, cozier place after running the old one for six years. In this new location, we’d like to provide the best facilities with invariable superior services. 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.
