Staff was amazing and met some wonderful people here. Location is walkable to the night market and bar district. Thanks for the stay! I'll be back if in Chiang Mai.
Beds are a little hard but overall was a great place! Free coffee tea and bananas and breakfast was good and super affordable. Good location!
Loved this place came back three times! Great base, great staff, great hostel! Love the free tea and bananas and it's so close to the centre of town and the night market as well as places to book trips!
- I don't like the bathroom... The lighting was poor and there is not enough hanging place for clothes. And the cleanliness is just average. - Some staff are nice and friendly, however, there are quite a lot of part-time staffs, and some you can definitely feel not very helpful. - The power plug was scary, sparks can be seen when you plug in, it is terrible and dangerous! I told the staff, but the stuff seems just not aware the problem. - Hair dryer can never be found.
The only positive thing to say about this hostel is the manager, she was very welcoming, friendly and always had a smile to offer. However, the hostel is filthy. The lounge area looks and feels as though it was not been cleaned in months, I lounged there on three separate occasions and on all three were bitten numerously by what looks like ant/insect type bites that were probably present IN the dirty cushions, not mozzie bites. Overall, I did not enjoy my stay here and was happy to leave...
Incredible staff! They helped plan all of our trips and were overall very friendly. Bathroom had one shower for 18 people so that was not fun but everything else made up for it
I loved it here, I stayed for 4 nights by myself and then ended up coming back for 2 more with a friend. Really good hostel and lovely staff.

Great little hostel, far better value for money than other chiang Mai hostels. Patchy wifi on top floor but great layout and friendly staff
Beds are hard and uncomfortable Shower was broken Toilet was leaky Staff was creepy There are lots of other places to stay in chiang Mai that are a better value.
Great hostel! Always stay here when I'm in Chiang Mai. Great location and super helpful staff.
I really like the vibe of this hostel and it has a great atmosphere but the bathrooms were a bit terrifying.
Perfect hostel for your stay in Chiang Mai. Great location, 5 min walk away from all the main locations. Dorm rooms pretty good and nice and clean. Really fast laundry turnaround (3 hours). Wifi was a bit hit and miss and needed to be turned off and on again a few times but staff were pretty good about sorting it. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend.
Very nice hostel, you get a free breakfast if you book a tour through the hostel, although some of the staff had no clue what they were doing! But it's in a good location and the beds were comfy and the dorm rooms were big.
Really nice hostel not so far from Thape gate wich is the entrance to the old town :) Hard beds - but I slept really well! Good place for backpackers :) Nothing bad to say about this place actually. I likes it a lot.
I really enjoyed being so close to the Night Market and some cool bars/shops, and the staff was always very nice and welcoming, though it seems that they spend a lot of time on the phones when they could be helping travelers. Also a smelly bathroom required holding my breath as I ran into my room! Hopefully it isn't like that all the time!
Not the cleanest/comfyest place but does the trick. Great to book tours and nice offer of various meals. Bathrooms are quite dodgy. Aircon only works between certains hours.
I honestly wouldn't recommend it just because the beds are so hard you couldn't sleep. I read previous reviews but thought they were picky, but no these were the hardest beds ever. My body ached the next day and would stop circulation if I didn't move at night. Not a very social hostel as lack of common area. Tour agency in front is good though. Security is a bit of an issue. They don't lock it over night (at least when I came back at 3am the gate wasn't locked just covered by chairs)
Nice and clean, friendly staff, beds were pretty comfy, fun people. Super solid hostel
This was a great hostel. The staff were excllent and really looked after us. We were able to book all our excursions through the hostel, which was great. Only negative was security, there were limited plugs in the dorm and therefore it meant either not charging devices or leaving them next to the door, which isn't ideal.
