    Cozy, social hostel with the best owner and host, Nich. Nich helps with everything and ensures that you have a great time in Chiang Mai. He organises night outs, day trips and brings the people in the hostel together. I enjoyed my many conversations with Nich, hanging out in the hostel lounge. Extremely friendly and cool owner. Location is great, you can walk to many night markets and to old town. There are many food options nearby. The common space, rooms and toilets are super clean. The beds are capsule-types which mean no shaking and squeaking when someone gets on the top bunk. All beds come with their own curtains and light, which is perfect, your own private little space. You’ll definitely have a good night’s rest here.

    Had the most incredible time with Nick and crew! Location was in a prime, cute spot surrounded by good local spots. Within walking distance to cool coffee shops, local eateries, and the essentials (pharmacy, 7-11, laundry). The hostel felt like home - it was hard to leave! Thank you for warmest welcome, Nick! And for bringing everyone together in Pai. More than grateful! ✨

    Great place, highly recommend. Good location, the facilities are modern & well kept, and the owner, Nich, went above & beyond to make our stay great. He organised Daily activities to help us see the city, and even took a few of us guests on a trip to Pai, showing us all the best places. We had a blast!

    Had a really good stay at 1948. It has a really nice chilled vibe and the owner is lovely and gives really good recommendations for day trips and things to do around Chiang Mai. The hostel is really clean and the beds are super comfy too which is always amazing to find in a hostel! :)

    The owners Nich and JJ really make you feel welcome and give you the best time in Chiang Mai. Whatever you need they’ve got your back and make sure you’re happy and comfortable. The hostel itself is super laid back and cosy, but there is always a chance to go out for drinks/ clubs etc. as the owner Nich usually arranges nights out for anyone who’s interests. Hands down a brilliant hostel! 😁

    I am SO glad I stayed at 1948. The owners are the nicest people ever - Nick helped us book everything and recommended some amazing places to visit like the cooking class. The vibes were immaculate in this hostel, we all went to the night market and some great bars with the owner. Biggest regret is not being able to stay longer! I stayed in the women’s only dorm - super nice, air con was great and it was quiet. I’ve already been telling everyone heading to Chiang Mai to make this their hostel!!

    Perfect place for your trip in Chiang Mai. It is a small to midsized hostel, so just excellent to meet ppl. Dorms/beds are comfy and quite. Nick, one of the two hosts, goes the extra mile for you. He is very helpful, accomodating and makes sure, you have the experience, you are looking for. Thanks for everything! We will stay there again.
