About this listing
This apt. has 2 bedrooms and no living room along with a kitchen and western bathroom and can sleep up to 4 guests. Great location within 2nd ring road has countless shops, bars, eats, banks, malls, nightlife, etc within short walking distance!
This HakkaHomes apartment is in an ideal location on Chengdu's south side within walking distance of the American consulate, Sichuan University, Computer City as well as countless restaurants, bars, banks, shops, and convenience stores. Chengdu's north/south line 1 subway is about 12-15 minutes walk from the apartment and many bus routes pass by the building as well.
The apartment has 2 fully furnished bedrooms, a small kitchen with cooking utensils, and a bathroom. Each bedroom has a double bed that can sleep 2 plus a closet, table, and a comfy bay window, or at least a Chinese style bay window :). The larger bedroom is more spacious and has a workspace and couch. The smaller bedroom is a bit small for 2, but can still accommodate a couple. Please note the apartment DOES NOT have a living room, but the larger bedroom has space to eat, work, or have guests.
Interaction with Guests
Besides getting the keys for move-in and check-out I suppose interaction would be "only as needed"... unless you come find me in my restaurant (The Living Room)... or my bar (Hakka Bar)... or my soon-to-open club! (.TAG)
The building with our apartments is located in the Zongbei neighborhood which enjoys easy access to basically all facets of Chengdu. Sichuan University, the best school in Sichuan, is right next door so there is no shortage of restaurants, bars, shops, banks and eateries of all kinds. The neighborhood also includes one of the best nightlife areas of Chengdu as well as easy access to the line 1 north-south subway which is right next to the US consulate.
It's about 10-12 minutes walk to the line 1 north-south subway line. Many bus routes stop right outside the building. Taxis are also easily found all around the building.

Decent apartment in good location. Amber is a very kind lady that helped us check in.
Great experience stay in Hakka Homes. The location was great, you can go to downtown on feet. There are also plenty of cool places mere there you want to visit for sure. The host was a nice girl and was willing to help you at any time. Living goods were sufficient. I would like to recommend this place to all of you. And I would definitely choose this place if I visit Chengdu again!
We were very disappointed with the condition of the apartment when we arrived. The maintenance was very bad especially for the sink, kitchen area and bathroom. The apartment was supposed to have been cleaned before our arrival but there were lots of dust bunnies under the beds. The apartment was also not aired before our arrival because there was a damp smell as soon as we entered.
Enclosed are pictures of the deplorable conditions in the areas stated above, The air conditioners were also not serviced. All in all the apartment was not the apartment shown in the pictures on the website and a gross misrepresentation.
The location of the premises was good although the building was rather old and a little rundown. We would not have minded so much if the apartment was well maintained and clean. The location was strategic with lots of food choices and transportation.
However, we have to give very good review for Amber, the person whom we met on arrival. She was very helpful and friendly.

About the Host, Ellen & Amber
Hi! I’m Ellen, or Zhang Xuan (张绚) in Chinese, welcome to Chengdu! I am born and bred in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan and home to China’s tastiest and of course spiciest cuisine! I’m also a member of the Hakka people, who, strangely are not recognized by the Chinese government as one of the official 56 ethnic minorities of China. Actually, the Hakka people have their own language and cuisine and lengthy history of more than 1000 years covering multiple migrations to both south China and later Sichuan.
I started housing guests in Chengdu in 2009 when a few friends and I, all living in the same building near a few popular Chengdu nightclubs, began housing DJs in our various bedrooms when they came from out of town to play Chengdu’s nightclubs including Xiongmao, Jellyfish, Paname and many more. We would just rent out our bedrooms or apartments and crash with each other. Before we knew it a little business was borne of it. I never really saw it coming. Anyways, more than 6 years later, HakkaHomes manages a bunch of apartments all in one great and uber convenient location in Chengdu.
Nowadays I am really busy managing my rooftop bar, Hakka Bar, and my restaurant, The Living Room, which serves traditional European fare. Oh, and by the way, my restaurant AND my bar are both in the same building as all of our HakkaHomes apartments. So when you stay at HakkaHomes, good food, fun parties, and lots of new friends are very closeby! We have had all kinds of guests stay in HakkaHomes apartments. From DJs and artists to entrepreneurs and engineers to students and interns. Considering how long I’ve been in this town, I’ve come to know a few people to say the least. Therefore guests should always let me know what kind of connections you are looking to make, because I may often know good people to introduce you to.
Anyways, Chengdu rocks, we’re always having fun in the neighborhood, and there is a reason they call Chengdu, “The city you can never leave”!
目前，我还同时忙着管理和公寓同一栋楼的顶楼酒吧（院吧 Hakka Bar) 、提供各种传统欧洲菜的餐吧（The Living Room)以及公寓附近保利中心a座楼顶的TAG电音俱乐部。因为酒吧、西餐厅及公寓都在同样的大楼，所以，你得知道，你住在客家公寓时候，很特殊的欧洲美食，安逸的小酒吧以及很多新的朋友就在隔壁！ 步行5分钟就可感受到国内为数不多的专业地下电子音乐部的氛围。
客家公寓接待过各行各业的客人：旅行者和访友者， 企业家和工程师，DJs & 艺术家，学生及实习生。考虑到我在成都发展了这么久，我认识的人也有点多 ：）。不管你到成都干什么，我很有可能可以给你介绍更多的资源。
