Took 3 hours to check in, seemed more interested in Selling tours for commission to people, should probably hire someone to do the other stuff if that's the score. Also this place is about 20-30 minutes from the main area of the old town (the old town is big) the room was good but lots of mosquitoes outside under the unnecessary table cloths, will stay elsewhere when I get back.
Amazing staff that go above and beyond to assist you. Would highly recommend staying here even for a short visit.
Thailandwow is a special place in Chiang Mai. Khai and his staff are amazingly helpful, friendly, and genuine people. We booked several activities through Khai and were very happy with the value and experience. Khai gave us several options and told us honestly what he thought of each place. The rooms were simple but clean. There is a nice lounge area to hang out and talk to others. While the location is not in the thick of things, the old town is very walkable. I highly recommend Thailandwow!
I really appreaciated staying in this hostel. The atmosphere in the chill out area is great and the Owner is very friendly
We loved staying at thailandwow! It was such a nice atmosphere and we met so many cool people! And Khai is so kind! If you need anything you can always ask him for help!
The staff are excellent! Rooms are basic, bathrooms are nice. A little bit far out of the old town centre so quite a walk, close to the food markets though. Not much atmosphere though unfortunately! All in all it's an alright hostel for a couple of days!
Khai and the two girls were very warm and welcoming. Lovely little place with very helpful and kind staff. Khai sat with us and gave a really good run through of the area and what there is to do. Very friendly.
Stayed in many hostels on all levels of the spectrum regarding location and price, I must say we were disappointed. Met by a very strange, demanding host who insisted we sat down for half an hour before the further half an hour check in/sales promo. Booked air con, were told this was unavailable. Didn't look like the place had any. Accepted fans but struggled as it was truly like a sauna. We were also told the key for the room was lost, hence unable to lock our room. Hope this helps.

One of the best places I have stayed in Thailand. Personnel is very friendly and they do anything for their customers. There is an area where you can chill and meet fellow backpackers, we met a lot of people there. Has an tripadvisor certificate of excellence. Bedroom is nice and bathroom as well. Everything is locked at night very safe
Very kind host who wants the best for you. The place it very very very chill. And it's not too crowded or hectic either. If you want to just relax and low key socialize, this place is for you!
We had a great stay at Thailandwow. Khai, the owner, provided us with everything we needed from a Jungle Trek to Nighttrain tickets and Motorbikes. He is just the most amazing Host we've had on our trip!
Henry and I had a great stay at Thailandwow mainly due to Khai the very helpful, fun owner. He sorted out a lot of the activities we did in Chiang Mai including elephant experiences, white water rafting, cooking classes and hiring moped, getting us discounts and recommending the best ones! Khai even looked after our backpacks when we took the mopeds to pai for 3 days. The hostel is very social and has a good area to meet people and chill. Our room was spacious and had AC and fans. Cheers, James.
Staff are very welcoming and helpful, if you had any questions or wanted to book something they were so helpful and would give them a call and check they were on the way to pick you up and organise time etc all for you :)
Had a nice night at ThailandWow. Accommodating/Friendly staff. They were very helpful with questions directions etc. and gave us some great tips on things to check out in Chiang Mai. (Jazz Bar. At least walk by it :) ) The only thing is the rooms are not air conditioned, but we did have three operating fans in our 4 bedroom dorm which helped with the heat. Get a bang for your buck and a little extra here.
