The pool is lovely. The food is good. The staff work hard but there is barely enough of them to keep up. # of beds in each dorm is small. Cleaning is sporadic. This is a party hostel. If you are not drinking then chances are high that the noise from the common area will keep you awake until 3 AM, even with earplugs. There are signs saying to keep quiet after 10 PM but they are completely ignored and no one tries to enforce them. If you are very social then you will have a great time here.
I enjoyed my two night here. Two nights were plenty though. The dorm room was incredibly stuffy and had an awful musky smell to it. The beds made a lot of noise and weren't super comfy. The kitchen was often closed, which was inconvenient. And the internet wasn't the greatest. This was a great was to meet other traveler, Dee Jai has a great social scene. It was definitely a bit out of the way in the old city, but sometimes that's just what you need! ;)
Good social hostel and in a great location. Would have liked some lockers in the dorm rooms though.
Great atmosphere and really cool areas to relax, chill out and meet people. Highly recommend this hostel. Had a great stay :)

When we arrived at the hostel it was around 4.30am and we was greated well and was set up with our room already which was great because we just wanted to sleep. The rooms was standard but the social area was great to meet people as well as the front garden area. Only negative side was we had hoped our rooms/bathrooms would have been cleaned everyday since we are sharing a room with four,the bins got filled up quickly and the bathroom felt stuffy with no ventilation. The staff member were helpful
Very dirty, staff not friendly. There is a reason this place is cheap!
Great hostel. The old English speaker at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The Thai ladies cooking could be a tad friendlier. I know hostels are hit and mis but I found the people staying there not that social. I wonder if the hostel has events to get people meeting and talking.
It's a nice place overall, nice location, friendly crowd. Could be cleaner though. It's worth it for the free use of the pool.
Overall I enjoyed my stay, largely down to the company... The prices were really quite reasonable. I did have an issue with a blocked toilet- it was blocked when we got the room. After I reported it, it still did not get fixed, until I asked for a plunger and had to do it myself! This happened twice... Also in the 4 days that we stayed, there was no sign of any cleaning done at the place. It would have been nice to have had communal cleaning products so I could have at least cleaned it myself!

Great value for money, really quiet at night so no trouble getting to sleep unlike some other hostels.
Great social hostel with nice staff and excellent food.
Good value for money. Basic rooms but very comfortable beds. Helpful staff - arranged my bus to Pai and motorcycle hire. Hostel is a little out of the way but easy to get around if you have a motorcycle or get a tuk tuk.
Had a great time - very social environment but not such that you couldn't get a good nights sleep. Made many friends, and had great nights at the bar down the road owned by the same establishment. Highly recommend!
This hostel has a reasonably handy location and has a cool bar down the road to hang out at. However some of the staff were terrible, so unfriendly and the service at the cafe in the hostel was awful.
I visited many Hostel in the world and i can cleary say that this is the best! There are a lot of cool people and is very easy to make new friends! Unfortunately I spend few days there and I didn't enjoy completely all the facilities. I choose the single room, it was clean and great.
One of th best hostels I've stayed in, in thailand. Great atmosphere, and the staff is very friendly. Would stay here again for sure
Totally love this place, nice clean and handsome ;) Staff is great too, just perfect!

Hostel is ok (especially for the price) but it depends in which dorm you are. First time I had dorm where the shower didn't work, took a day to make it work again. The hostel is also a little bit far from all the restaurants and bars so if you would like to be in the middle of everything this is not the place to go. Good place to meet nice people. Did like the garden with pool and bbq.
Great social friendly hostel, swimming pool, very knowledgable and friendly staff, a good location within the old town with small clean dorms, great value for money. Defo recommend Only cons were , there was only 1 toilet in the common area and there wasn't any lockers In the dorms only in a room off the common area, also there weren't enough lockers for everyone in the hostel, which wasn't a problem as me and a friend shared one but could see this being awkward if traveling alone.
