    What a great stay my friend and I had! The location is spot on; right next to the Old City. The vibe on the street is relax as it is also near other hostels that has little resto-bars. However, you must try the owner food she cooks on place : the minced pork with garlic and basil is just delicious! Same for the iced coffee. It is really worth it, as it is good and affordable. The owner herself is very sweet and bas been really helpful. She helped us book a tour to doi suthep a

    We had a fantastic stay at the Lantern Hostel. We were here to celebrate Loy Krathong. Pak and the rest of the team put together a basket making activity that helped us all get into the festive spirit. They arranged everything from building the baskets, releasing as a group, and even helped with sending up lanterns. Pak was amazing and always happy to help. We would stay again in a heartbeat whenever back in Chiang Mai

    Couldn't recommend Lantern House enough! Best hostel experience we have had! You must stay with Pak, the owner. She is so incredibly nice, funny and helpful and works hard to make sure you have the best time. We stayed during the Lantern festival and she brought people together and organised group activities. The rooms are clean and comfy and you have to try Paks iced coffee. Also, if you book tours or activities through her shell give you a great discount. When will definitely book again!

    Can’t speak highly enough about Lantern House! Pak and Tong are the best hosts we have encountered on our travels! Came in strangers and left as friends! Willing to help you in anyway possible for whatever your needs may be! Recently opened her kitchen, and some of the best food we’ve had; whether street vendors, or fine dining! Truly made it a home away from home, and will always go back whenever we find ourselves in Chiang Mai!

    Location is great. Room was clean. No frills, just a good place to stay and explore Chiang Mai. Owner was fantastic and gave us great advice. She is also an amazing cook. The food we had at the hostel was some of the best we have had on our trip. Nice to sit in the courtyard around all the plants. Would come back.

    Lantern House Backpackers is a great place to spend your time in Chiang Mai! Pak is extremely friendly and was always around for a chat/ to answer any questions! She also helps by booking any tours/activities and gets you up to 10% off. The rooms are good with a private ensuite and the value for money here is amazing. The place is located a short walk away from the old town and all the major sights- we did not need to get a taxi anywhere. Definitely recommend!

    I loved my stay here. The rooms are well kept and the beds are very comfy. Pak is absolutely lovely and goes out of her way to help arrange any part of your trip as well as inviting guests out to the local markets or nights out. The location is perfect as well, just a quick walk to most attractions, but still quiet and relaxing. They’ve recently started serving food and it is better than most Thai places I’ve been to. I’ll definitely be staying here again whenever I’m back in Chiang Mai.

    Very Good

    Lovely staff. No atmosphere. Good value for money for some privacy as you can get a single room BUT the walls are paper thin so whilst you go to a private for some rest, this is not easy to get with people sounding like they are literally inside your room as they walk past. Room was well equipped but could be cleaner. It was fine for a night if nothing else available but I wouldn’t go back, despite the warm welcome and great staff etc. Needs a revamp first. Thanks anyway :)

    While the staff are friendly and helpful, the hostel itself doesn't have much of an atmosphere and I wouldn't recommend to solo travellers. The cleanliness is so so, there was an ant infestation in the bathroom, and the shower water ran freezing cold for my entire stay.
