    The hostel was very clean and staff were super helpful and kind! The hostel is in a convenient location, and only a couple blocks from the old gate. It is not a party hostel, so it is good if you want a quiet and good night’s sleep! Highly recommend staying at this hostel in Chiang Mai!

    Very nice hostel! Joe and his wife and kids are so nice and so helpful. They helped us book our tours and arrange cars for day trips and the airport. They also arranged laundry service for us. The hostel is super clean and free breakfast was bread, jam, butter, cereal, and milk which we were happy with! Great AC. Great location, near street food. A quieter hostel so not super social, if you want more social stay at their family home 1 which is busier and apparently really nice too!

    Super clean and comfortable place to be. Host are extremely nice and helpful. Atmosphere isn't bad at all but could be a little bit better. Bit risky if you go alone and want to make friends. I would easily recommend this place!

    Second time staying here.. I really love it. The owners are so nice. Want to help you with everything. Around the corner the Saturday walking street, and 10 minutes walk to the Sunday night market. And 2 minutes walk to the evening street food marker. Beds are good, and the aircon is nice.

    Basic, average hostel. My check-in was a pain. I emailed the owner prior to my arrival telling him I would arrive late. He said he would wait for me at Family Home 1. I showed up at Family Home 1 and he wasn’t there. It wasn’t in operation and empty, no one there. I called him and he gave me directions to walk to Family Home 2. It was dark and I couldn’t find it. Walked back to Family Home 1 and his friend was there and gave me a ride to Family Home 2. Met a couple of nice people there though.
