They did not specify that the room would have no aircon. In the Thai summer this was horrible. The room was hot with the sun all day and at night it was hotter inside than out. Was 40 degrees in the room with only 2 tiny fans. The staff were very unfriendly. the toilet door was see through so people in the room could see you showering. The door also had slats so you could hear and smell everything from the toilet. Moved to a room with aircon and it smelt like mould. Dark and dingy.

Nice hostel with a communal area as you enter, the rooms are pretty basic and the wifi doesn't stretch that far, but it is good value for money considering this.

Great hostel. I stayed there during Songkran and it was the most incredible atmosphere. The people were super friendly, hilarious, awesome. The staff was always nice and helpful. Everyone hangs out downstairs and talks and goes out together. They have a pool a few doors down which is cool. The facilities are good and the price is not too expensive.

The Bendigo is, quite simply, the finest retreat in all of the Seven Kingdoms, a bastion of. Managed by the most gracious Queen Tiffany and her loyal army of Knights and Squires. Weary travellers can sleep soundly in the knowledge that the castle’s obese-beast, a fierce lioness named Emily, regularly patrols the premises on and endless hunt for intruders and/or snuggles. It is perhaps a little cold at times in the hostel, but that is to be expected, is it not? After all, winter is coming.

Absolutely no security here. First day girl broke in through our window who wasn't suppose to be in our room. The windows have 0 security, most windows are broken so anyone can easily crawl in as she did. Most all windows don't even close or lock. Way too many mosquitoes here, they don't even do anything to control them.

Main feature of the hostel that was nice was the pool access down the road. The hostel was ok but very loud at night and the two people working the front desk overnight were young individuals who seemed to be uncomfortable approaching rowdy groups. Cleanliness of the rooms was ok... Toilet in the room I stayed was not working when I arrived and had to approach the desk on more than one occasion before the issue was rectified. Overall ok accommodation, you get what you pay for here.

Other than the benefit of having Deejai Garden and the pool, I wouldn't stay here again. Extremely noisy, the rooms have windows into the hall and you can hear everyone coming home drunk as if they're in your room. Staff was a bit snippy and rude and didn't seem to do much about the noise. Otherwise, beds are comfy and the food was good.

Had booked to stay for 2 nights at Deejai backpackers. I had sent an email to ensure that the 4 bed dorm we were booked into had air conditioning as it stated on the facilities that it did but people's reviews had stated differently. I never got an email back and on arrival I was told that all the dorm rooms booked on hostel world were all fan dorms. Staff were extremely un friendly, the room was dirty and you can find much better hostels with much better locations in beautiful Chiang Mai

Not bad, just stay away from the 1st floor, way too loud. Stay here if you want a good social experience but not so much if you're looking for a quiet night. Some roaches, but it's Thailand, so that's whatever. Liked it, but happy to go somewhere quieter after!

The main floor always smelt terrible as there was some type of backup with the toilet. Not enough lockers, I had to wait watching at checkout for one to open up so I could put my laptop somewhere safe. Met some great people in the end and the pool made everything worth while

This was my first time staying in a hostel and if i could do it again I would of choose deejai's. The staff were very helpful, food and drinks on site were cheap and it was a lovely relaxed and calm atmosphere which was very easy to meet new people :)!

A lovely pool area. A 4 bed dorm for this rate is amazing. The beds were a little uncomfortable but the bathroom was very nice. About 20 minute walk from the main bit of town, which wasn't a problem for me!

Young crowd. Mainly early to mid twenties. Some stuff members are super helpful - others are not.... A bit far to walk to the center where things happen.

I loved my stay at Deejais. It is a very sociable hostel. However, if you're not looking to party and want somewhere quiet then this is probably not the best hostel for you. The rooms are clean, however there are not always enough lockers available for everyone in the locker room. It's in the main square so everything is close by.

Not a fantastic place. The rooms weren't great, and the whole place wasn't fantastic, but it was inexpensive and had a good atmosphere downstairs.

I loved it there! Mostly because they have two Big areas Where you Can hang out, which makes it really easy to meet other travellers. The atmosphere was really good and cozy!

Dirty, went to my room and my bed was dirty so asked for it to be cleaned and all they did was fluff the pillow and fold the blanket. Stains and dirt still there. Told them and had to search for my own clean linen and make the bed. Showers leaking and flooding. Filthy dirty. Plugs very rarely worked IF you're lucky enough to get one!
