LOVE IT HERE. Most welcoming and relaxing hostel we've stayed in in thailand. Would definitely come back just to stay here. Very social and Vee let's you know what's going on every night.

Funny little hostel with lots of art and an abundance in atmosphere. They can and will arrange everything for you, give suggestions and even let you tag along for boxing, eating or ladyboyshows. Good speed internet available and you can safely leave your bag there during a trek through the jungle.

Bunchun was great for meeting people and beds were comfortable enough but still it wasn't great value for money. The staff were very pushy with day trips and their advice wasn't always to the best of the guests interests they are more worried about making money. The bathrooms weren't cleaned near enough the downstairs toilet had an unbearable stench.

Do not stay here!! Unless you are looking to be kept up all night by drunken antics, want to sleep in a bed bug infested 'bed', shower in a filthy shower and generally be surrounded by dirt and grime then this place is not for you! After reading positive reviews I decided to do two nights at Bunchun expecting to meet some people and be closer to the night market. Big mistake. All anyone in this place really cared about was getting trashed every night, and sleeping all day, which is fine but not

Owner Comment (Hide)
Im sorry that you didn't enjoy Bunchun hostel like the majority of people do. We have a rigorous routine to prevent bed bugs at our hostel, however we can't prevent new backpackers bringing them with them to our hostel that is why we have the ongoing bed bug prevention routine. The hostel also has a maid who cleans daily all areas of the hostel so I am not sure why in your case "everything" is dirty when this is not the case at all,

Good hostel. Sometimes things just got throw around by staff which is clearly not good because they than get mixed with other peoples stuff. Owner sometimes push trips to hard to get commision. More showers and toilets wouldn't be bad. All in all I would recommend it!!

V and the guys are amazing will arrange any tours/buses/treks you want and get you a good price! The hostel itself is super quirky full of wonderfully weird art and animals. The atmosphere is awesome here, a short walk into old city and round the corner from the night bazaar and cabaret- you'll never be bored at bunchun!

The staff working there does not speak or understand English well. Furthermore, their attitude is really bad. In addition, they do not have enough fan and it feels really warm at night. For those who blare looking for the air-condition room, do note they only on it after 10pm to 8.30am. There are only 3 shower toilets for a total for a total of estimated 40 beds. And it stinks throughout the day!

Fan is called aircon so it was sweaty hot during the Summer heat wave, but a bargain deal at 100 baht a night. Only 2 bathrooms, but I did fine getting in the hot shower during the day or early evening since most people use them in the morning or super late at night. Excellent security with camera recording the locker area as front desk man checked video when I accidently left my locker open though nothing was stolen. This would be easy from December to March 1st when the weather is perfect.

Simply the best hostel I've ever stayed at! Vee and his fantastic stuff have created an extremely friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Great location right next to the night market. If you're coming to Chiang Mai, stay here.

Good location within walking distance of the old city, very friendly and helpful staff, and a sociable atmosphere that makes it easy to meet other people. We were a little annoyed that they keep the AC turned off for most of the day, and the place could do with more (and cleaner) showers. However, all-round very good hostel, especially if you want to meet lots of other backpackers in Chiang Mai.

Bunchun has a unique feel to it given all the art around. The staff are super friendly and at least one are completely fluent in English. Juju the dog lights up the common area! Such a cutie. The birds are fun to play with too. The location is a bit out of the way but it's not so far to walk into the central areas of town. They're flexible and let us defer a paid night so we could go on an overnight trek. Easy! Motorbike rental was easy too and a good place to meet people. Thanks!
