We stayed at Mojito Garden for a few days whilst in Chiang Mai and we had an amazing time. Really cool people to hang with and a great atmosphere. Great if you're on a budget. Also Lady Annie is really helpful and always willing to party with you 😁

The woman, who's probably the owner, is very unfriendly. I agree with the other reviewers who described her. The others guests were cool, but it was hard for us to hang out at the garden because there were so many mosquitoes around. That guesthouse may be infested with mosquitoes. That place needs mosquito nets in the rooms and in the garden... I left early because it wasn't worth it.
watch out for the lady at the front desk, she gets uber bitchy if you dont book tours through her, other then that there was a good atmosphere, and its close to all the wats and walking street.
The place has a very good location and the atmosphere is not bad. The staff should be a bit more helpful if they were more focused on the service than on partying every night. Its a pitty that a place with that potencial is being manager that poor!
Staff was very nice. Not much of a social atmosphere, but at only 180 baht a night for a single room, I won't complain.
Really nice place and a good atmosphere, room was clean and bed was comfortable also a good location. However we found the lady at reception really unhelpful and rude. We tried to arrange a bus to Pai and she said they were all full with all companies, however we went to the ba station to discover most companies had space. She just had an odd attitude.
Very cozy hostel. Includes a nice restaurant and massage, so you have it all. Nice garden to hang around and meet others. No hot showers, but Chiang Mai is generally warm enough:-)
Had to crawl over the main entrance gate when getting back at night and had to crawl over it again (that time with my big backbag) when leaving early morning. Maybe I was just not able to open the gate but it any case I would suggest to inform other travellers about that.
Very nice dorms (no bunk beds, curtains between beds), hot shower, gorgeous garden. Great atmosphere, specially if you are a solo traveller. Close to shops, bars and temples I will definitely go back !
I stayed one night and i didn t feel welcome at all by the staff. Pity because the garden and the atmosphere are nice for a backpacking guesthouse

If you want to rest and sleep early this hostel is not for you, the walls are made with bambo and theres no glass in the windows, that means that you listen everything that happen outside or in the next room very loud. The dorms are very confortable and nice, with tour own plug, light and table, and its separate every bed with a curtain. Bathrooms are nice and clean, and theres a good place to chill out. They have a restorant really nice too.
Positive: Nice place with good area for socializing in the middle. Negative: Staff didn't let us book more days when we didn't book tours from them. Showers were cold (water heater didn't work), and the room got pretty cold at night.
The receptionist at Mojito Garden was so unfriendly, i couldn't even get a smile out of her and i stayed for 3 nights. Such a shame because the hostel is really nice, rooms are clean, plenty of showers/toilets and a lovely garden area, in a great location. Just the staff that let it down, as well as the staff in the restaurant - i witnessed one couple walk out because of the way they were rudely spoken to by the waitress when simply asking what type of noodles were used in a dish.
The rooms are quite good, although there's no door that can be closed. The lockers are big and quite good. The one that was not my thing was the host that was only trying to sell tours and packages instead of just informing people about the town. If you want nice and cheap breakfast, there's a egg car around the corner(in front of 7/11) which makes amazing omelettes for just 20 baht!
Nice hostel. Good rooms. However nit so quite. Okay common area.
Beautiful surroundings in the garden, close to centre of Chiang Mai, but also far out enough that it is quiet and peaceful! The lady on info desk was fantastic, booked a great two day trip through her, she let us leave our luggage safely locked away for the two days we were gone and took us to nearby hostel the day we returned as she had fully booked unfortunately, for us! Individual lockers in room, all very clean, showers are clean and warm! Would definitely recommend.
I stayed in a private room with ensuite, rooms are basic but good value for money. It would have been nice if the bathrooms were a little cleaner. Overall it's a chilled out hostel with communal areas for you to relax in and mix with other backpackers. Trips etc can be organised here at a good price. It only cost me 100bt to get to the night bizarre by tuk tuk and 200bt to go to the airport.
Best hostel I've been to in Thailand. Such a nice atmosphere and everybody talks to each other, we play guitar and sing all night. Perfect

Clean place, lovely garden area to hang out it. Definetely a backpacker vibe here. Staff is bitchy but the job gets done, but dont expect to feel warmth and welcoming.
