Not enough there to convince you that we are the place to stay yet?
Our common area is by far the coolest and funkiest around. Based in what used to be café. All we know is that our common room is simply awesome. The laidback atmosphere makes it easy to meet other travellers. Your only trouble will be convincing yourself to get out there and see the sights when there's so much to do here!
It's comfy, it's cosy. It’s homy. It's a great place to socialise with new friends and drink a cold beer from our bar (which sells quite the variety of international beer favourites and a collection of cocktail concoctions) while warming up in front of our fireplace.
In the summer, one of the best places to be is our garden. There are loads of plants, and it's a great place for a chat or a BBQ, or even to test your skills on our board game.

Need a snack or forget something? It's no problem. We sell travel essentials and a selection of crisps as well as other snacks to feed you - that is if you are still hungry after pigging out in town with the world famous Sichuan Cuisine!

So what kind of rooms do we have to offer? At NOVA’s, we have it all.

We have private singles, twin and triple rooms which are with tea making facilities, TVs and 24 Hours hot water.

We also have dorm rooms that hold between 4 and 6 people. All dorm rooms have lockers and a 360 degree private reading light, extra comfy mattress, and curtain so you can have the utmost privacy if that's what you are looking for, But book early if you want to secure one of these beds - they sell like hotcakes. About the dorm rooms, we know how important the public shower and western toilet will be, so we can promise you we have the cleanest shared shower and toilet facilities in town.

The stay here was enjoyable as the staff were friendly and helpful. We arrived here late at night and we were greeted by the driver that was sent to fetch us. The hostel was clean and comfortable though the location was a bit difficult to find as a taxi that we took later on found out but we managed to steer him on the right path. Overall, I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone who is interested in getting around Chengdu and its surrounding areas.
