    This hostel was superb. Joe and ling who run this place are fantastic, so kind and friendly and helpful. There is plenty of space to chill and relax, a lovely atmosphere, a small cafe to sit and relax, and a rooftop to enjoy Sun and space. Joe also takes guests to local places and events to experience Chiang Mau. I will definitely be back here and would recommend 100%

    I'd highly recommend this hostel to everybody. I'm definitely going back there next time I'm in Chiang Mai. The atmosphere was amazing and the owners made it so homely and easy to meet people. This has to be the best hostel I've ever stayed at. 10/10. Thank you Joe and the family!

    The owners were really great. The location was good too. Close to the Saturday and Sunday markets. Good street food close by. Possibility of 4 common areas (including roof). The hosts combine a lot of activities with the hostel #1. The only ick is the beds are extremely firm, but I would still recommend.

    Ling and Joe are the loveliest hosts- so helpful and kind, they welcomed us in from the second we arrived, even greeting us an hour earlier than reception time. Clean facilities, a great rooftop, solid AC, minimal bugs. The location is tucked away so it’s quiet at night but still close and convenient to the rest of the city. We loved ur stay here and hope to come back :)

    Nice quiet homestay on the edge of the old city. Staff were very friendly and gave great advice on what to do. Beds were quite firm but overall this made a great stay after a long sleeper bus.
