When we arrived it looked nothing like the pictures. I know the place is cheap, and the rooms are clean. But they where rebuilding all of the outside chill and check in area. And we had loads of noise of other guests of stayed under us, screaming shouting and talking.

The location was amazing. Right next to the Tha Pae Gate but they charge extra for A/C. We got bugs in our room at night. It has potential for atmosphere but there weren't many other people staying there. The staff didn't speak really good English so communicating was difficult. Lots of good food in the area. It was tucked away a little so it was quiet. Rooms were basic, shower was good, internet spotty at times but the bed was fairly comfortable for Asian standards.
Simple but Wellington located hostel. Staf hardely speaks english though... Not very helpful for booking tours
We liked Baan Jaja so much, we actually booked another week stay with them. They're a little old-fashioned but the wi-fi is strong, the water bottles and tea are free, the hammocks are comfy, and the staff are all quite friendly. Our sink became clogged during our stay. On our way out the next day, I mentioned it. By the time we arrived back, it was already fixed. Good value. Recommended.
Good hostel - we had a private room and it was quite large. The staff helped us set up a bus to Pai very quickly and were very helpful. The wifi reached our room and was a good connection. Separate bathroom from shower which was also nice. Would definitely recommend!
Although it is a little bit hard to find, the hotel has an excellent location. The rooms are big, clean and the internet is fast (compared to other hotels). The only problem is that the staff doesn't speak english and they don't know the city, so they cannot help with anything. If you already know what tours you want to take, stay there and have a great time; but if you want to travel on your own and therefore need some local advices go somewhere else.
