Very nice Hostel in boutique style. Good food nearby. Massage shop next door!
Great location and staff, very clean and great value for the money.
They gave our room (and reservation) away to other people one hour before we arrived. The ones that took our room just told them it was their name on the list. The hostel didn't even check their passports to see if it was true. That made me very mad. Also because it was during the Loy Kratong festival and we had booked this hostel ahead, because fiding something during the festival would be a hard job. The lady from the hostel didn't speak English and made no effort to solve this problem.
good quality room, great part of town. lacks atmosphere, and communal areas. more of a budget hotel.
Extremely clean and well-maintained. However, I did find it a struggle to communicate with the people who run it as they don't speak much English and I don't speak much Thai!
I am satisfied with Baan Klang Vieng. I was impressed by how clear and convenient this hostel is. I would recommend it to the people who will be traveling to Chiang Mai with no doubts.

I haven't traveled all that much in hostels, but this place isn't like a traditional hostel as far as I can tell. There really didn't appear to be a lot of people hanging around in the common area, which isn't that big. One reason for this is probably that the rooms, at least our room, was massive, had a kitchen and was spotless. So this place is very clean and close to food and shopping but doesn't have the feel of a traditional hostel with a lot of fellow travelers to mingle with and get tips.

If you arrive late in the evening, there's no way to check in. There's no atmosphere since there wasn't really a common area as far as I could tell.
I really enjoyed my stay here. The owner was very helpful in arranging cooking classes and transportation and her English skills were very good and much appreciated. Exceptionally clean, quiet, safe, and very well located for restaurants, services and fun. Right close to the main city gate and right next door is a great massage place, and around the corner about 100 steps away is a very good scooter rental place. Loved this hostel and highly recommend it.
This hostel gives you the feeling of beeing home from the first minute on. The house is clean and funished nicely. The staff was very helpful with giving Information about trips.
