The atmosphere was great! Really chill place surrounded by green in the middle of the old city. The owner was lovely and took time to explain a lot about the city and recommend tours that he thought would please me according to what I wanted. They provide free bread, tea and coffee 24/7, which is great and convenient for the guests. Laundry service is also offered! Lovely place!! Definitely staying there again and recommending to all my friends!

The hostel is very well run, they offer free coffee and tea, and did an excellent job allowing us to rent a motorbike for the two days we were in the city. They even offer transport to the airport to make your stay more comfortable. The hostel was relatively quiet and peaceful and is surrounded by a nice water display in the center of their rooms. If we come to Chiang Mai again we would book here again.

If you want a more chill experience in a quiet place of town, but still very close to the center of town, it's the perfect spot to stay. Really enjoyed my time there

Overall it was nice. It was a bit far from many useful places, but the city itself is quite spread out so you can't really blame them. Staff were friendly and the facilities were very clean.

Very nice place to stay. The only problem was that the water pressure in our ensuite was awful. However, the communal bathrooms and showers were very good.

This is a great hostel! I stay in a twin bed private room and my stay was perfect! They cleaned the room everyday, so it looked more like a hotel instead of a hostel, and they provided us with all the help we need, such as offering us a very cheap car/driver to take us to many places outside the city, and a cheap cab (who was actually the very same driver) who took us to the airport at 4 am on a very cheap price. Great experience!

We loved the outdoor chill area and the constanr supply of toast :)

The overall grounds of the hostel were really homely and chilled. Dorms are very basic but the air con was a saviour. Showers and toilets are shared between two dorms and were in pretty decent condition. Generally a nice vibe and the staff were friendly. Complementary tea and toast was a nice touch. Some nights the communal area was empty but if you're looking for quiet accommodation then this would be ideal. Only slight negative was the cockerel crowing at 6am every morning!

Very clean! Amazing bang for your buck. Great common area for other backpackers to mingle.

We stayed in a dorm, it was very basic, but about right for what you pay for. Beds are really hard, and caused a lot of pain, so don't go if you have back problems. Communal showers weren't great, but right for what you pay. This place is perfect for the budget traveller. Communal area is outside, and a great place to relax.

Very relaxed and quiet place! It's filled with cats, dogs and chickens walking around. The bathrooms are outdoors but are still pretty clean. Come here if you're looking for a quieter place and you'll be happy!

BEST HOSTEL IN CHIANG MAI :)

I loved my stay here. The only things missing were the free towels and soap in the showers. Location was great and so is the shared area. Would stay there again as it is located very well and a great place to relax. Build a pool and it will be even more amazing :)

Good little hostel if you want to get away from the main back packer hostels in Chaing Mai, quite relaxed and chilled out. Great cafe just round the corner called birds nest if you are looking for some where to eat nearby.

This is a good place to stay within the old city. We stayed for 4 nights and some nights were very social in the outdoor common space, other nights were very quiet. The staff is helpful and the rooms stayed cold from air conditioning. Would recommend.

Lovely experience here! Great location but still situated on a nice spacious lawn so you don't feel like you are in the middle of a city. Perfectly situated between the tourist part of the city and the university area. Would highly recommend!
