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.


It was a little far our of the Main Street but wasn't too far to walk really it was difficult to find anywhere to eat. The room was nice and clean and shower and toilet were clean. Only problem was wifi was bad in the room didn't really work. Staff were good booked us a taxi to airport for next morning and they were even early.


Only 3 people when I visited so no atmosphere, clean place and had to make own bed so was sure that bedding was clean. Cool outdoor area downstairs to relax!


K is a very kind man and will go a long way to help you out. He has amazing adventure tours on offer as well. Common area is very chill. Best frozen yoghurt shakes in Chiang Mai! Also plenty of sockets to charge your phone.
