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!

Nice and welcoming the main dorm consists in an open room where all the guests can go through. It's not a big problem, just think about it if you can issue with this.

Love you Vee and your boys. Not much of a posh hostel but full of characters

I stayed in the dorm on the top floor for 2 nights. WiFi didn't work past the second floor so it wasn't possible to use internet in the dorm room. I was in an Air Conditioned room, but management controlled the AC, and it was only on between 10:30 PM and 8:30 AM which was not long enough. If I'm paying for AC I want AC. There were only 3 bathroom/ showers in the facility, and the one on the main floor smelled like a sewer. Not a nice part of town. Stay in the old town if visiting CM.

Bunchun is a great hostel with great guys who run it - and a super cute dog! It's a good place to meet other travellers and the staff organize nightly outings for the guests. I'd definitely stay here again!

Bunchun has got to be the best hostel I've stayed in during my travels! The staff are so welcoming and I instantly felt at home from the minute I walked into the hostel. Being quite a small building, within a few minutes of your stay you will become friends with everybody, it's a great sense of community. Wen, who sits at reception couldn't be more helpful and accomodating to your needs. The owner, Vee, is amazinng too! Not forgetting Juju, the hostel's pet chihuahua. LOVE BUNCHUN!

This hostel has such a great vibe. Can't beat the atmosphere.Met lots of amazing people. You get lockers to secure personal belongings. The staff will help you book excursions and give you advice on different options, they were so helpful and really want you to have a good time! I stayed in the big dorm and loved it. Very open, plenty of room. Right by night bazaar, maybe 15 min taxi to airport and 10-15 min walk to old city. Laundry nearby and currency exchange next door.

Great hostel, friendly staff, good location for night market (but not the old city). Loved the emphasis on art and ethical treatment of elephants.

I arrived at 10pm after a 13 train journey for them to have lost my reservation. After 30 mins of them sorting it out, I got shown my room which was nothing like the advertised photos, instead of a bunk bed it was a mattress on the floor. The rooms were open plan so no privacy as to get to one room people had to walk through your room. Fair to say I moved after 1 night!!

Good art, good people, and Vee is an excellent host. It is a little far outside of the Old City but nice that it's close to the night market.

its difficult to say you didn't find to much wrong with a £2.50 hostel... but BunChun has certainly made this possible... yeh if u get the bottom bunk its just mattress on the floor... and a couple extra shower facilities would make it ideal ... but the staff are excellent, Jui Jui the hostel dog is a cool little thing ... and honestly ... if anyone leaves any negative comments about this hostel for whatever reason ... i emplore you to completely Disregard thier comments ... Much Love xx

Really laid back atmosphere at bunchun. Great place to socialise and meet people out on the porch and communal living area. Returning customer! It's awesome to see the gallery and art throughout the hostel making for a quirky but interesting surrounding. Highly reccomend this place, especially for solo travellers.

Hostel was great for meeting other travellers. If you choose the larger dorm rooms you have to be comfortable with having every guest walk past where you sleep. Had one of my favourite NYE ever with the group staying here. Helpful in booking tours for you as well.

Short tuktuk ride (or approx 20 min walk ) to bar area. Lockers in dorms: 1 per bed. Helpful staff that will take guests out for, for example, beer pong at Playhouse. Nice little porch where ppl get to know each other over beers from the neighbouring exchange shop. Good sushi place 15 metres away.

Stayed for one night at Bunchun and found the hostel to be excellent. The help from the owners Alex and V was superb- both giving tips and knowledge of the area, and organising nights/ events for the hostel as a group which was a great way to both see best of the city and get to know other guests. Lockers available and front door locked when reception not attended. Great showers/ bathrooms on each floor, friendly atmosphere. Would definitely stay again when returning to Chiang Mai
