    Awesome place and really helpful staff! Joe and his wife were very helpful and friendly. Such a nice family! If he’s having a bbq while you’re there, you should definitely go! Food was very good. Another thing that I realllllyyyyy liked was that there are some weights and resistance bands for you to use and workout at the rooftop! I wish I could’ve stayed longer. If I come back to CM, I will stay here again!

    Staying at Family Home 2 was definitely a highlight during my time in Chiang Mai. My birthday occured while I was there and Joe, alone with his family, made it incredibly special surprising me with a birthday cake during a BBQ. It definitely says a great deal about a place where they truly make you feel at home. It's at a great location with a night market and everything you need nearby, not to mention the bed was comfortable and the people you meet at this hostel are great.

    Lovely hostel! I have nothing bad or any improvements to say! The owners are super friendly and it feels like a home away from home. Right inside the gate there is some street food. Thank you for a wonderful stay! Be sure to stay on a Tuesday or Friday where they bring the 2 hostels together and have a bbq night!

    Great experience right from the start. The beds are comfortable and there is a good locker located beside bed big enough for a decent size bag. Fresh fruit and coffee for breakfast. Lots of great food and restaurants around. They helped plan my motorbike rental and other excursions, that being cooking class, trip to Pai and the Islands down south. Definitely recommend for a chill relaxing vibe! I’ll be back!
