I found staff to be rude and not at all accommodating. Most spoke little or no English. My requests were often met with blank stares or a "you've interrupted me whilst on my personal cellphone" look. The bathroom doors were dirty. Cleaners spoke loudly over radios in the room when others were asleep. The list goes on. Staff need a major revamp. The hostel itself has great facilities.
Stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed my stay. Hostel is super clean and in a great location, right next to the night bazaar. The hostel also provides laundry machines and a full kitchen if you want to cook meals. Washrooms were big and clean with great rain showers. However, there is not much of an atmosphere and not an easy place to meet other travellers. Only negative for me!
Very central location close to all major sites in Chiang Mai. Only complaint was the street it's on is filled with prostitution bars and they are everywhere at night. We stayed in the 4 bedroom family room and it was very nice and enjoyable, fun for a group of 4 as it's a huge room and you can pregame/ get ready together
Great helpful and friendly staff. Good clean facilities. Really enjoyed my stay here!
Don't hang out in the lobby or 2nd floor unless you have a nice supply of mosquito repellent.
Good beds, clean dorms and big lockers! Showers and toilets are a bit cramped but good water pressure and hot water! Staff weren't the most helpful though
In general it's a good hostel. Nice interior and atmosphere, easy to connect with new people due to the common areas. Hygienewise it's not good since they don't have soap/handwash in the bathrooms on the different floors. no toilet paper in the toilet booths so one have to bring toilet paper from the sink. Quite bad, since one either forgets it or brings too much = a waste. The wifi situation is also annoying, you have to reconnect with user+pass each time you come in or change floors.
The cleanliness of the hostel was terrible, the bathrooms were never clean even when i asked the staff to clean, the hand washers had the 3 days I stayed the same stains and hairs, the back side of the doors were full of fungus as well as the shelf were i had to put my stuff, the tools and drawers in the kitchen were full of dust as well. The front desk staf were lovely, but the rest of the staff wasnt, one of them even yell to me.

Do not stay here! There's no refund once you find out how bad it is. Shower/bathrooms have huge doorway opening with no doors. Shower is small cubicle with no anteroom for towel or to change. Once you open everyone in the hallways can see you. Blocked sinks. Old toothbrushes and undies on floor in shower. Cobwebs in toilet stalls. Rooms so crowded as they stuffed a 7th bed in the dorm for 6 that you're paying for. Door opens it bangs bed. Street felt unsafe as all night massage parlours.
Besides bathroom it was extremely clean. Very large, lacks personal taste and warmth. Nice kitchen, large common area downstairs. Beds clean. Key to get into room. Very safe. Great location and well known by taxi drivers.
