Good social atmosphere but terrible for sound - it carries far. Bed's aren't very comfy but everyone was friendly and there was a free breakfast too

The staff were really friendly and helpful here and very friendly. Great that tea and toast was free! . Generally the atmosphere was great - there were quite a few people staying so there was always someone to talk to but it wasn't so big that you felt like there were too many people. The showers were freezing cold but very clean and the toilets always flushed. The beds were pretty comfy but my bed must have been next to a generator because i was kept awake by an annoying noise.

Loved this hostel! The staff is so helpful and laid back, ask anything and he'll ring up someone and sort it immediately! Perfect for a solo traveller because of the big common area. Just sit down there and within no time you have friends! The room I was in was perfect and had pretty comfy beds too! There are two warm showers too, which is nice :) Would definitely recommend this hostel!

I am in love with Spicy Thai & Noom (the owner) who also runs Spicy Pai in Pai. I've never had so much fun at a hostel, felt so included & looked after while sleeping in the comfiest and cleanest rooms ever. 1000% recommended.

The staff is amazing and very helpful. Very helpful arranging tours and giving advice. My only advice is to bring earplugs, because they don't enforce quiet time hours.

Noom is the man! Anything you need / want to do, he and his staff got you covered. I had the time of my life in Spicythai + Chiang Mai. Can't put into words the awesome people I met and the things we did. Hope you enjoy your stay!

Spicy Thai is one cosy and super Social Hostel with not only decent rooms but with excellent team to support and ensure everyone feels that they below there. The manager Noom and his team go out of their way to make it a point that everyone is having a good time. This place is located slightly outside the busy "town centre" but still with in the town.

Such a good atmosphere here, met so many amazing people! Staff are really helpful and loved the TV in the lounge with the pre loaded movies.

This was such a good choice! I'm a solo traveller and met friends there I'm still travelling with! The atmosphere is great and the owner is very helpful and friendly.. The hostel is a bit old fashioned and could do with a bit of updating but apart from that great stayed in two other hostels in Chiang Mai and this was by far the best!!

This place is old school. There is one big communal bathroom, one living room with many movies to watch, big dining table, laundry down the road. You make your own bed and get to pick it as well. While it's a social environment it didn't seem that the staff cared all that much about anything. Only one of 6 (!!) showers has hot water, and my mattress was so sunk in it was hard to sleep. Please get new mattresses and some hot water!

Hostel was in a great location near the center of town which was easily accessible by foot or tuk tuk. The hostel had a great social component and a great large common area to watch movies, play cards, drink beer, etc. The beds and showers are clean, but overall very minimalistic. There are small lockers to store valuables in the common area, but not in the dorm room.

Great hostel, very easy to meet people and good atmosphere. Easy enough to book anything you want to do around the area and the rooms are clean and the staff are helpful, would definitely stay here again

Friendly hostel with a nice common area with a TV and decent rooms, staff were really knowledgeable and good at arranging activities and transport. Not in the best location but laundry and food are close by

Spicythai had a great atmosphere. Very easy to arrive and mingle with other solo traveler's. The desk help was GREAT, spoke english, and all activities were arranged on time and in an organized manner. I would have liked for there to be better storage for my things, rather than having to keep it all on my bed since there are only dorms. I would like to see some minor upgrades as well. Things didn't seem very clean in general.

Spicy was a great place to stay and meet people. The staff was great about helping to organize day trips throughout the city, and transportation to Pai. Lockers are available to use with your own lock and the location was a bit out from the centre but there are plenty of shops and places to eat close by.
