FIVE BIG REASONS TO CHOOSE SIM'S COZY GARDEN HOSTEL

Chengdu is a place that you have plenty of choice of good hostels. So we do not mention about basic conditions such as "friendly staff, cheap bed, wifi internet available etc" anymore. Here we listed up the five outstanding characters about our hostel.

---Who is the owners---
Sim and Maki (he's Singaporean and she's Japanese) are experienced travellers (they are great resourses for travel in Sichuan and Tibet) and welcoming hosts who take pride in getting all details right (---a sentence picked up from Lonely Planet---). Staff are honest, well trained and competent, Sim and Maki are themselves available most of the day.

---Tibet Tour---
As you can see the traveller's reccomendation on some travel website, such as Lonely Planet Thorntree Forum, Trip Adviser and traveller's blogs, we are the most informative and experienced among many agencies. It is why we have set up a Tibet travel counter according to the demands and we have staff who is specialized for Tibet tour arrangement.

---"All in one" facility - We have maturity facilities which makes you difficult to leave---
-Many different room types to meet your needs
-Restaurant provide both western and asian food, good quality and reasonably priced
-Bar provide various alcohole with cool music, laidback atmosphere and staff are always willing to chat with you
-Learge seating area includes outside terrace and indoor sofa
-DVD room and hundreds of DVDs to bollow
-Foreign Language Library which you can find books to swap
-Game area including pool table and pingpong table
-Two big quite gardens which brings peaceful and relaxed atmosphere, and it is hard to find in city center.
-Travel desk which provide efficient travel information, arrange tours/ transport (Panda, Opera etc…), and booking tickets

---Trip to Jiuzhaigou---
We have a branch guesthouse right outside of Jiuzhaigou national park and our team will make your tirp to Jiuzhaigou much easier. We provide information and arrange the transport.

---Biggest capacity among all Chengdu hostels---
As we can hold more than 200 people and we are always busy with many travellers from all over the world. It is a good place to meet fellow travellers and easy to get more information for travelling around in the area, and also helps finding travel partner to share the cost for Tibet tour.
Prices are per person per night.
