We loved this place. All the people that work at the Green Tulip House are very nice and helpful. Thank you for such an amazing time in Chiang Mai.
Nina was a great host! This was one of the best and one of our favorite hostels we stayed in during our 6 week SEA backpacking trip. Rooms were big and clean, the shower was seperated by a wall from the rest of the bathroom. Lots of information about the different things to do around Chiang Mai, food at the restaurant is good.
NOT a very pleasant experience when I was staying in Green Tulip House for 2 days. Staffs were nice, but there were just beds, towels, a desk with locker and a standard toilet then nothing else in the room. The toilet bowl couldn’t stop leaking, motorbikes roared and dogs barked for the whole night cause it’s too close to the street. Not worth the price. Another thing, they canceled my booking after I checked out that I can’t comment. So I wonder whether it’s kind of cheating of the hostel worl
Green Tulip was one of the best hostels on our trip! The location was brilliant, it is situated in the old part of the city and it s the walking distance to all of the major temples as well as bars and restaurants areas! The staff was very helpful and greeted as warmly upon the arrival. The best thing about it though was the room. It was very spacious, and super clean! The Wifi was working perfectly and we also had air-con which came in really handy! All in all we really enjoyed our stay!

Rooms are big and clean but is not really central, you gotta walk quite a way or get a tuk tuk. And staff helps you based on their interest and on what they can sell to you.
Overall a pretty good hostel, and it's less touristy location allows you to see more of the actual city rather than just the tourist bars. Can get a little noisy at night if you're on the first floor, and it makes you feel a bit guilty to come home after they've closed, since the woman that works there has to get out of bed to let you in. Not the best system, but it's not a deal breaker. Try the banana pancakes.
Definitely one of the cleanest places we've stayed in Thailand. I found the dubstep/smooth jazz always pumping in the lobby to be a little off-putting, but it seems like most people don't mind. The owner is very helpful and friendly and suggests activities without being pushy, which is nice.
Clean and secure, but it's a decent walk to the center of the city and I thought I was going to lose it if they put one more tour brochure in my face. Everything about this hostel is money, money, money. We forgot to pay for one breakfast right after we ate it and they yelled at us before we even step foot back in the common area. They make a ton of commission on tours, so if you book one through them make sure you bargain hard. Can't get in at night without ringing doorbell & waking them up
One of the best hostels I've stayed in, and certainly the best of the four or five I've tried now in Chiang Mai. Good, big, comfortable rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. (By the way, believe them when they recommend the SIam Rice cooking class -- it was great.) We rented a scooter organised by the hostel for one day too, and it was a good one and reasonably priced. We would definitely stay here next time we're in Chiang Mai, no question.
We had a private double on the ground floor and it was BY FAR the cleanest place we have stayed in. The maid comes in to clean every day and changed the towels every other day. The hostel was built recently when they moved location so benefits from all new beds/furniture. It has lockable drawers and excellent air con. There is a delicious restaurant just down the street called Hoi Ka. Not a social hostel and no comfy seats to sit in an relax in communal areas
Had a great stay at Green Tulip Room. The staff was friendly and super helpful. And my room was pristine. Wifi was a bit difficult to get in the room though. Overall, my stay here was just easy. And the place is welcoming and cheerful. Great home base to explore the old city and the rest of Chiang Mai. Would recommend for travelers looking for a reliable, comfortable space with great value.
This hostel is the friendliest hostel I ever stayed in! The staff are the best and are so knowledgeable about the local area! I recommend this place to anybody travelling to Chiang Mai. But just a heads up , a tuk-tuk is a must to go anywhere or taxi as the city centre is not a comfortable walking distance!
Great hostel .. super clean rooms and a very helpful, knowledgeable staff. You simply can't beat the price. While I do give it an excellent rating for security that's also the one thing that is kind of a draw back. They lock the place up by 10pm at the latest and as a result anytime you arrive back to the hostel after 10pm you have to ring a doorbell and they answer to let you in. I have no problem ringing a bell .. but I always felt badly because if it was too late .. you woke them up.

We've had a great time I'm green tulip house! Rooms are clean en good! Nice beds, good shower! Staff is friendly but a little pushy. we've had a jungle trip and want to relax a bit but they are ask me many questions about my name en push me to choose where we gonna eat that night and why we are so late etc. besides that! The woman pushed me to book some activities in the hostel! I don't want that and then she was pissed off! So: good rooms en facilities en much backpackers but staff can better!
good sized room with en suite which was a surprise, on arrival we got upgraded to a double room which we were very happy with. the older male on reception was a little grumpy but everyone else happy.

Lovely big rooms in a great location. Place is spotless. Staff were friendly and welcoming. They helped us organise trips and transfers and made sure we made the most of our four day stay in Chiang Mai. Don't think we would have seen half as much if it wasn't for the encouragement from the main receptionist, a lovely woman who would see you off in the morning and welcome you back at night, whatever the time of night. Great guesthouse and good value for money. Would recommend to everyone.
The room was huge, spotless and had very good air con and shower. The only thing I found difficult was the operating hours of reception. I had a 9am flight and had to wake up the owner to get my key deposit back despite giving her advance notice of my departure time. Also, I got back at 9:30pm after the night market to find everything shut up which was a bit disconcerting. I eventually found the bell to ring to be let in but it would have been nice to have been told at check in about this.
great clean and safe place to stay. Staff were really helpful and welcoming.
it seems staff there only nice when you are booking something from them. and be careful when you ask how much cost to take a taxi. for the same kind of taxi, to the same place . they help me to find one cost as much as double the one I found my self the next time.
