Hostels are a relatively new concept in Chongqing. Although the few that have opened may not yet have much travellers' culture, they do offer cheap beds (and reasonably priced private rooms), plus useful amenities such as internet access and washing machines. The next step up would be midrange hotels catering primarily to Chinese travellers; don't expect English-speaking staff but do expect comfortable doubles discounted to Y200 or less. At the top end, Chongqing has plenty of posh international hotels.
Chongqing Three Gorges Youth Hostel (Chongqing Sanxia Qingnian LOshe; (g 6371 2593; fax 6371 3693; 2 Bajiaoyuan,No6) If it's atmosphere you want, this small hostel in a refurbished stilt-style building above the Yangzi has it in spades. The dorms are clean, if cramped, and only the traffic noise from the busy road below (and the internet access in the bar) will remind you that you're not back in ancient times. Staff offer free pick-ups from the bus or train station if you arrange in advance. Otherwise, take bus 608 from Caiyuanba to Huguang Guild Hall (Huguang Huiguan); from the guild hall ticket booth, the hostel is one block south.,
Nanbin International Youth Hostel (Nanbin Guoji Qingnian LQshe; 6279 0850; www.yhachina.com; 581 Nanbin Lu) Down a lane behind a cluster of restaurants in the Nan'an district, across the river from the city centre, this hostel isn't too central, but it does have nice facilities, including a laundry room and a comfy lounge. The rooms, which come in several configurations, are well maintained (at least if you don't mind pink walls). Staff are helpful but may not speak much English.
Perfect Time Youth Hostel (Chiinzhen Nia'ndai Qingnian LOshe; 6547 7008; www .ahotel.net.cn; 2 Zhong Jie, Ciqikou) At this cool hostel in a restored building at the end of the main street in Ciqikou's old town, you can park yourself on the terrace overlooking the Jialing River or in the laid-back bar stocked with books, DVDs and a pool table. Standard dorms come in four- or six-bed configurations, and the good-sized doubles have large bathrooms. There's free wi-fi, or you can use the hostel's computer free for an hour. The drawbacks? Parades of tourists passing beneath your windows and a location that's quite remote for touring the city.
Motel 168 (Motai Liansuo LQdian; 6384 9999; www .motel168.com; 46 Cangbai Lu)Rooms at this modern chain hotel are a quirky mix of bright primary colours and demure floral duvets. The most expensive rooms have expansive river views; the cheapest have no windows. It's about a 10-to 15-minute walk from both the Liberation Monument and Chaotianmen. Rates include breakfast, but discounts are rare.
Fuyuan Binguan (6362 7333; fax 8903 3922; 12 Caiyuan Lu) Around the corner from Caiyuanba station, this old-timer is convenient for transportation but out of the way for everything else. Inside, rooms are comfort-able enough, ranging from basic to recently renovated with white duvets and faux-wood floors. There's an internet cafe off the lobby (Y2 per hour, Y10 deposit).
No 9 Inn (Jiuhao Kezhan; 6377 0909; fax 6377 7799; 29 Xinyi Jie;, discounted Y129-169) Although the rooms in this newish tower are beige and bland, most have strong air-conditioning, beds that - surprise! -aren't rock-hard, broadband internet and strong water pressure. Your fellow guests will likely be Chinese travellers, businesspeople and tour groups. The hotel is about a five-minute walk up from Chaotianmen Dock. Rates include breakfast.
Hongyadong Dajiudian (, 6399 2888; fax 6399 2999; 56 Cangbai Lu; ) Part of the H6ngyadong food and shopping complex, this hotel charms with its combination of traditional Chinese furnishings and modern amenities. Some rooms overlook the interior shopping streets - fun for people-watching but not too quiet. Discounts in the 50% range make this hotel a good deal for the level of quality.
Harbour Plaza (Chongqing Haiyi Jiudian; (D 6370 0888; www.harbour-plaza.com/hpcq) You can't get much more central than this plush hotel one block from the Liberation Monument. The property caters to businesspeople, and staff speak English.
