The rooms were very basic, and also smelt damp. The staff were quite rude at times and not very helpful. However the swimming pool was nice and good food is served
Deejai is a great place to meet new people. Staff is awesome, especially teya! Rob was great too. The location is awesome and the breakfasts are good and a reasonable price. Wifi is a bit sketchy but otherwise a good stay. Make sure to get an A/C room or you might melt! (We switched from a fan to an A/C and we were much happier)
Good atmosphere to meet people but everything is dirty. Bathrooms are smelly and was filled with spiders. Sheets not clean. A bit of a walk to anything. The one plus is they have a nice pool area to hangout at.
Rooms a little unclean, pool area great but the trees need to be chopped down so it's in the sun for a longer amount of time. Great that reception can book all our activities for us!
Really great, somewhat social... The bar across the road was beautiful and the man who runs the hostel gave us free food there which was nice :)
Such a nice hostel and so easy to meet people if you're alone! I extended my stay 6 nights because I was loving it. Reception are always happy to help you with everything which is the best and booked all buses and tours for cheaper then travel agents. I will be back
Great value for money. Beds were OK. Pool/bar area is great for socialising in the evenings
Honestly expected much more from my stay as many others had incredible experiences. However we found the owner quiet rude, all other staff were decent. Lockers are placed no where near the rooms which is impractical. Our beds weren't changed and when asked if we could have clean sheets we were told it was because the people before us checked out late and made to feel as though we were an inconvenience to ask for fresh beds. The bathroom was dirty and rooms are tiny with no storage space.
One of the higher (if not the highest) prices hostels I've stayed at. Good for a starting point in Bangkok but there are places a lot cheaper. Chill out area is ok and 2 minute walk from the main Koh San road which is good for nightlife. Lockers in the rooms and dorms are a good size. Clean bathrooms too. Would come back but prices should be lower
Everything here is great! Facilities, atmosphere, staff and location. Great place to stay!
Super hostel with excellent staff. The pool area is great to chill out in and meet people.
Probably the best hostel of my trip, the rooms were what you expect for the price you pay but they are good. The best bit about deejai is the garden area really good environment. The food I had there is some of the best food I've had in Thailand and the staff are great.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. They assisted us with booking our tours and were able to get us discounts as well. The cleanliness of the room was average but the beds were clean, and for the price it was worth it.

This is my second time staying at Deejai in four years, and it's still amazing! I have so, so, so much love for the staff at Deejai Backpacker! It is a wonderful, relaxing place to stay, not to mention a great place to meet fellow backpackers, as well as a great place to mix with the locals. They have a beautiful salt water pool across the street at Deejai Garden, so that you can soak up the tropical sun while enjoying a Chang beer or fruit smoothie from the bar! Lots of love! XX
An excellent hostel, staff were really friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend. Great place to meet new people.
Second stay after returning from Pai. With security I'd always prefer to have a big locker in your room, not a small one downstairs. Nothing stolen though. Location is fine as taxis are cheap. Staff were really helpful and often went out with guests . Atmosphere was quieter than I expected. Overall decent value.
Amazing atmosphere for travellers who enjoy meeting other travellers. Own bar & swimming pool nearby.
Staying in a fan room gets pretty hot, but other than that pretty happy with this hostel, has a pool, bar, restaurant, really nice staff and lots of bus/taxi services for good value!
Nice common room and facilities but the room was basic and no AC, bathroom cramped.
One of the best hostels I stayed in in Thailand, you definitely get a lot for your money! The gardens with a swimming pool is a 2 minute walk down the road and has a treehouse, bar and restaurant which serves great reasonably priced food. Would recommend trying to book an air con room as the fan room was very hot!
