Excellent hostel with extremely helpful and friendly staff. Our room was clean and comfortable with warm showers. The location is about a half-hour walk from the Old City or a 50 baht Songthaew ride. The free tea and coffee, breakfast and bicycle rental plus the hospitality of the staff more than make up for this though! Brilliant value for money.


Despite the average grade we gave to this hostel. We really enjoyed our time and liked all the staff there. Especially to the super kind man who helped me look for the tuk tuk driver who drove off with my wife's mobile one night. Many thanks to everyone there! Your comments about us being family will not be forgotten. :)

generally a good hostel only the beds are not amazing but the location is perfect if you want something close to the aiport


You pay for what you get, very basic dorm only one fan doesn't reach majority of beds and no electrical sockets work location is very far away


Very good room for the price we paid. Nice breakfast, room was big and staff was very friendly. We had a lovely stay


I stayed in a shared dorm for 4 days and then a private room for 2. The dorms don't have locks. They serve free bkfst. (2 Toast,1 egg, salad) location of the place is completely inconvenient unless you plan on getting a scooter for 200 baht a day. The staff is absolutely amazing here an will do anything and everything to help you, Gus & Lauren are the best! The atmosphere isn't great for solo travelers, and theres absolutely no comfortable hang out areas. They're also doing construction daytime.


I had a great time staying here and the staff is amazing.


Nice cheap place to chill, free breakfast, beds and showers were alright, spacious place.


It is very good and cheap,and even u can rent the bike for free.the next time to chiangmai,I will stay here again.


Staff are lovely, free brekky, shower in all rooms and a spare outside, can rent motorbikes here they even drop and pick up the bike when your done with it, foods good and cheap too, 60bath, shop down the road sells cheap booze, nice ppl there also! i will stay again, only downside is its 20min walk to night bazaar, but borrow a bike or walk it, easy

Amazing place to stay, the staff will go out of their way to help you and to organise activities for you. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, and place is clean and well kept. It's in a nice, quiet location, giving you a bit of a break from the city madness, but it's only a 20 - 30 min walk into the centre. Absolutely loved staying there, and would go back without a doubt. Great value for money too!

Really friendly staff and good value for money. Really cheap, but big rooms, fine breakfast, clean, very hot shower, little closet with a lock. Only thing is the location; it is far from the centre. Other than that a recommendation.


I did the dorm style, hostel living accommodation. The place seems cool, and the manager is EXCEPTIONALLY KIND, but it simply didn't make up for the cons. The wifi does not work, the location is too far from the city center and all the fun things, tuk tuks and taxis don't know how to get there, the beds are HARD, cockroaches in the bathroom, the dorms don't lock, my shoes and towel got stolen, and one of the workers tried to cheat us out of our money when we tried to check out. Not worth it.


This hostel really is incredibly far out. It took me 30 mins to walk to the touristic hell-hole night bazaar and another 20 from there to the city centre. Also the staff never seem to be there when you need them. Nothing was properly explained or made clear to me at all and I couldn't ask any questions. The nearest place to even buy water is 10 mins walk and this is definitely not the place for a lone traveller to make friends either! Also the fans in the rooms are very ineffective.


Very affordable hostel so don't expect more than the basics. Location is quite far away from most of the CM attractions but not too much of a bother if you're willing to catch a songtiao out. Biggest gripe is that we had a hole in our bathroom ceiling so our room was perpetually filled with mozzies. Buy mozzie coils if you're going!


Top-notch hostel, for only 100 Baht a night you really get more for your money! Although the owners, actually a family, seem a bit disorganized sometimes, it's much better than it looks like. The rooms are basic, have hot showers, fans and most importantly lockers to put in your valuables. And even without them it would be already a very safe place! Of course it's a bit off the city centre, but when renting a bicycle or motorbike (which the hostel offer) it's really no problem. Excellent!


though it is a bit far from center,it is really nice !you can have a try!


staff is pretty friendly and helpful. location isn't the best though but it's good value for your money.


Lovely friendly staff


The stay at Trekker Camp was great! The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. I was always greeted by name and felt very much at home. The hostel is a little bit out of the old city which makes it a very peaceful place to relax and a quieter place to sleep. The taxi drivers often do not know where the hostel is, but if you tell them "Park Hotel" they'll drop you off a five minute walk away. My stay was excellent, and would totally stay there again! : )
