Good hostel but due to it's location on the other side of the river a little far away from the city centre. There are lot's of options for tours in the guest house and the staff is always friendly and willing to lend a hand. We had a room with fan and the toilet and bathroom as two separate rooms outside the sleeping room which was inconvenient, especially with all the mosquitoes flying around in the bathroom and outside. For the rest; good decent guest house.
This hostel was a great deal for the price. Close to the day/night market. It's not too "backpackery," which can be a pro or con depending on your situation (i.e. not an ideal place to meet other backpackers). The facilities were nice, although it's worth noting that they don't clean your room while you're in it (also may be a pro or con). My only complaint is there were a fair amount of ants, but this is south east Asia, after all.
every nice hostel. just a little bit far to eat and drink in old city.
The owner is European and very friendly and helpful (from booking tours to just having a chit chat about Chiang Mai).
We stayed 3 nights. The guesthouse itself and the owner/staff are very nice! Breakfast (not included) was very good! Wifi worked well. Rooms were clean. We really missed a mosquito net for the bed, 1000s of mosquitoes in our room every night... (maybe because of the pond in the common area?) Hostel is also a little bit far from old town (half an hour walk!), but quite close to the nightmarket. We rented a motorbike to get around! Chiang mai is a lovely city.
Really enjoyed our stay, staff were excellent. There's an great bar just across the road called Tidden with great food and an awesome river side location.
Parami Guesthouse was really lovely and comfortable. Though a bit farther outside the Old City than I would have liked, its location was still very nice. The owner was friendly and accommodating and our room was perfect. His wife runs a spa next door also so massages and other treatments are readily available. Not a social setting really, but ideal for a relaxing place to stay away from all the commotion.
awesome guesthouse. very friendly and helpful owner, cute rooms, cheap, very good value for money, not so close to the old city centre but to china town and night market
the environment is really good and quiet at night. the staff is nice and helpful. good choice to stay in this hostel.
a little noisy when there were motorbikes runing by
I found the ration price/quality very good. The room was clean and tidy. The environment was calm and quite. People in the reception are very nice and helpful. They have a motorbike rental service very convenient as they bring you the bike to the same hostel.

The Hostel is great, the staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable. This is one of the best hostels i have ever visited.
We had a great time at Parami Guesthouse. The staff was wonderful, helping you with every need. It's well located, not too far from the old city or the night market. We would totally recommend this place.
Loved it! Friendly staff, great common areas, rooms are nice. There's a little pond with stepping rocks you have to pass to get to some of the rooms, which would be hard on crutches or similar injuries.
Very nice place with nice wooden decor and a lot of character. Situated by the river in an area with some nice restaurants nearby and close to the markets.. Staff very helpful. Maybe could benefit from a kettle/some tea in the communal area (I don't drink the stuff myself but my friend was pining for somewhere to make tea) or maybe even a little shared fridge to hold drinks or snacks. .
Very cozy..like the single room I had. Love the rise platform. Basic but suits my need. Nice garden.
nice and helpful staff, clean and spacious room, beautiful 2-story wood building with a nice court and back yard. water is not very hot in one or two occasions, need to close the window in the bathroom, otherwise goosebumps a 30-minute walk to the old city at a comfortable pace, which is good after a full stomach of delicious Thai food, rent a bike to save some time. recommend

What a great little guesthouse! Roger was so helpful and always so nice even when we asked 1000s of questions. He helped organised an elephant day, kick boxing fight and also for us to get into Laos on the slow boat. The room was nice, we only has a twin but it was nice and comfortable looking over the garden table and hammocks. Towels were provided and we had a shower in our room along with air con. Our toilet was outside but it was a separate one for our room. Great place!!!
very nice Hostel. Would stay here again. Just a bit outside from the city centre.
