    Honestly can't complain about anything! Joe was very helpful and informative and didn't push tours! Beds were normal hostel beds, bathrooms were clean, had 4 different hang out spots! They also let us leave our bags there after we checked out, and let us shower before we caught our bus! Definitely worth it!

    Great staff and location. Joe was incredibly friendly and helpful. He and his family invited all the hostel guests to a great BBQ on my first night so I got lucky with my timing of stay there. Very clean showers and toilets and I shared a clean room with a group of great guys. I couldn't have asked for better stay at a hostel! Thanks Joe!

    One of the nicest hostels I’ve been to. Joe is amazing, he does everything to make his guests enjoy Chiang Mai and the overall idea. He connects people, gives discounts and provides with recommendations about everything and everyone. The hostel is a very good place for meeting people for your onward adventures. Totally loved it.

    I can see why many people wrote great reviews about the owners. They are really nice! Location- steps from Saturday Night Market and the hospital. The 4 bed mix room is all the way on the 4th floor, that's why it costs the same as the 8 bed- that one is on the second/third floor. breakfast NOT included but they have cafe where you can order something or you can use the kitchen. Bed was comfortable, A/C on all day in room. Towel provided.

    Joe and his family made this hostel very welcoming, and we socialised with the associated hostel #1 too. Central for Chiang Mai old town and especially the Saturday night street markets. Joe can also organise day trips but isn't pushy. First time in a capsule type bed and it was great.
