I stayed at ThailandWow for 3 nights and as a solo traveler, I thought it was a great hostel! As soon as I arrived, Kai helped me organize everything (with plenty of time for exploring and doing my own thing) so I could best take advantage of my time in CM! It was easy to meet others in the comfy, open common area, the dorms were quite simple, yet clean and there was a large locker for valuables. Only downsides were opening up the padlock after-hours and having to pay for a towel. No big deal :p

This hostel was really wonderful! Khai is so great! From the moment I arrived he was so helpful in getting me set up with a cooking class and with taxis whenever I needed them. He also let me lock up my stuff there while I went to Pai for a few days. The hostel has a great vibe, and you are sure to meet people! One night I just hung out and chatted with Khai and some really great people I met there all night. There is one airconditioned room that is great, but both are good. Khai I'll miss you!

I loved this hostel. Kai is so so welcoming and supportive. He'll help to organise all your tours at the same price as outside places (I checked) if not cheaper. I meet so many great people in this hostel. I stayed in the 10 bed dorm with AC which was fine. Though the AC was turned off during the day which is sooo annoying. Though luckily I was super busy doing activities during the day that I wasn't there much time for that. It's very clean. I stayed here twice and I'd stay again

Khai is the star of the show, seems a good man. Booked for 2 nites & l arrived after a long trip from Laos, l said l will prob stay 4 or 5 nites. He said that l had to pay extra 100 bht for arriving after 7pm. I hv never come across this anywhere in the world! It is actually written at the end of his description of his hostel. But really, who ever reads that?! On principle l cancelled my booking & spent the one night there. Dorms are ok but there is no security at all. Location is inconvenient.

Had a fantastic stay at Thailand wow. Khai who runs the place is incredibly helpful and a pleasure to stay with. If I ever wanted to book stuff he was completely on top of it. The common area is good and the hostel is a medium size so you pretty much get to know everyone staying there. Made a lot of great friends here.

Really great owner/manager who was always looking to help out as much as possible just a genuine human being. The location is not the best if you are looking for a "party" hostel but it was in the old part of town, easy to the temples, and great people none the less.

Great hostel! Kai is amazing and willing to help with anything and everything you need. It's a really nice, chill atmosphere and definitely easy to meet people. Nice outdoor common area. The breakfast is great (get the fruit with cornflakes and yogurt!), showers and bathrooms are pretty clean, even the room without ac is fine to sleep in (more people in the ac room though), and the area is quiet but within an easy walk to anywhere you want to go. Stay at thailandwow!

Thailandwow was a very nice hostel for a traveler on a budget. The bed was comfortable, the toilets/showers/rooms very clean. The staff are all so kind and helpful. The hostel manager, Kai, as Im sure you have read from other post,is a wonderful host. Also, the location is right between the saturday and sunday markets, and there are heaps of restaurants and cafes all around. A very nice place to stay with a relax atmosphere.

Sometimes the places you stay enhance the quality of your experience. Thailandwow is one of the main reasons why I had an amazing trip and loved Chiang Mai. Khai is an amazing and caring human. He will help you in anyway possible, offers fair prices for activities and cares to learn about your stories. I will miss this place so much!

Thailand wow is a great hostel, it is in an area where you you can walk to all the temples in Chiangmai old town and the nightlife is walkable as well. Hiring a scooter definatly is a good option as the night market and some of the other attractions are a little further away. The common area is a great place to meet people and this hostel has a really cool vibe. Khai the owner couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly and booking tours and finding info about chiang mai from him was a breeze

The facilities are nothing to write home about, but this might have been the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed. Khai is the man and super, super helpful! This hostel really should be more popular than it is.

Staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. They recommended an elephant tour with Panda tours. Thinking it was going to be an average tour- it was absolutely amazing. The company treats their elephants very well, Isuzu a wonderful experience. The hostel is a little far away from the nightlife- and required taking taxis. Beds were alright, and the bathrooms were a little dirty. But essentially what you pay for.

You really will get what you pay for here. . I had a single occupancy room upstairs but it was incredibly hot, and there are holes in the walls and floor so absolutely no insulation.There was one fan and hardly kept the place liveable during the day If you're on a budget and want to meet young travellers, this is a good place; however, I think it's worth the extra 350 baht to be comfortable.

A chilled out social atmosphere and the manager Khai made my stay at Thailandwow enjoyable. The place is a little quirky... its a bit far from town, the dorm room I was in was quite small and the bunks queaky. Theres a few showers downstairs and one outside. Notably it isnt the best hostel facilites wise but its good value if you dont mind basic accomodation. But the outdoor social area is great for meeting people, and Khai is a wonderful host.
