The owners are soo friendly here. Not the cleanest of places but there was hot water and strong wifi. The dorm wasn't fully booked so I had a private room to myself, easy to meet people and a nice outside area to sit. It's further away from the Main Street of pai than most places but it's still only a 10 min walk.

I really enjoyed my stay at Gongkaew.. I loved the garden, free tea and coffee... which was perfect for hanging around and meeting interesting people from all over the world! The staff were very helpful and on New Year's Eve they cooked us a delicious and massive meal - all for free! - which was extremely generous and kind of them! Great place to be and a haven away from the crowd while at the same time close to all the temples and nightlife.

Nice place, in a quiet part of town, not as touristy as the Eastern part of the old city. Cool common area to hang out. Dorm was comfortable and clean. Bathroom area was basic and perhaps a bit old, but was clean also.

Nice facilities, beautiful outdoor courtyard. Wifi only works in the common areas, but it's really great in those areas (flawless Skype video chats!).

Minor flaws are many, but cancelled by excellent atmosphere.

Really liked this place as the staff were so friendly and helpful, can organise tours, bikes and buses all from the desk. Reasonably priced drinks served 24/7 (you just noted down what you had taken). Free tea and coffee / toast and fruit 24/7 which was a very nice touch. Rooms were clean and showers hot. All set in nice garden area which was nice for relaxing and meeting other travellers. One downside is that there are a lot of mosquitoes out in the garden at times which can be pretty annoying.

Fine for a night or two, few cockroaches in room and toilet was leaking. But wifi ok, free tea, coffee and toast in communal area and water in room.

The hostel was good but it would have been better if the lockers had been in the rooms. The common area was nice.

They have all the facility that accommodate what a traveller needs. However the toilet needs a bit of renovation.

Nice little hostel/ guest house away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets in Chiang Mai; however, within walking distance to everything or a cheap tuk tuk ride! Staff at front desk don't speak the most fluent English, but we very friendly and extremely helpful when booking excursions and with questions you may have. Facilities were cleaned daily! Common area and washrooms are outdoors, so bugs are definitely an issue. Wear bug repellent and you'll be fine! :)

Really enjoyed my stay here, the rooms were really good, you feel like home away from home, and the best was the huge space around with lots of green areas to enjoy peacefully Chiang Mai rest after day activities. They also have some beers at good price too! We spend at first one night, went to Baan Chang Elephant Park, and because we were happy with the atmosphere, we stay again there after leaving to Laos. Totally recommend if you want to relax after heavy activities.

Really good backpacker hostel especially if you're heading out Treking as you can book a lot through them and leave your large bags at the hostel. Dorm rooms were clean and it was really easy to meet people. Also free tea, coffee and toast 24 hours a day was awesome!

This place is amazing. The rooms are nice and well-furnished, the garden and the common area are great to relax and look like a resort. Gognkaew is centrally located and within walking distance from all sightseeing attractions. But the most fantastic thing about this place is the staff: our flight was delayed and we arrived at 3 am. Moreover our luggage has been lost from the air company. At 3.15 am they provided us t-shirts and shorts for the elephant camp we had booked for the following day.

The staff are amazing. Nice hang out area with two good free computers. No lockers in the dorms, only at the front is my only issue. Recommended

I loved Gongkaew Chiangmai home! My friends and I came to Chiangmai for the Yee Peng festival, and though the festival alone would have made our visit to Chiangmai unforgettable, our stay at Gongkaew Chiangmai home made it infinitely better! The staff was so friendly and helpful, and they totally embraced us and included us in the festival activities!
