    I was recommend purple monkey by my friend, he said the bed was very comfortable. It is true. The bed was very good. Every dorm has its own bath room and toilet. In-house motorbike rental which is cheaper than other place and it was good scooter. Roof top bar was always quiet if there is no party. FREE Breakfast. Very good location, near Thapae Gate and walking distant to party spot. Close to coin laundry shop too.

    Great location, close to a 7-11, launderette and about 30 different food places and yet somehow it managed to be quiet where you could easily chill on a hammock or bean bag on one large balcony during the day or get some sleep during the night (we were in a private room) without too much noise filtering through from the rooftop terrace / bar area or other rooms during the night. Only slight annoyance was the rooftop terrace being closed between breakfast and 5pm and the balcony closed after 6pm.

    Awesome balcony and a great location if you want to go to the bars/clubs like Yellow and Spicy! The staff was friendly and relaxed. They left keys for my friends that were coming in late and ordered a motorbike taxi for me to get to the train station.

    The staff over there where very helpful. Jennifer - Purple Monkey Chang Mai And Annie - Paithopia also was amazing. Very helpful, positive and warm. Bom helped to book our room for Pai. And in-house hostel facility to rent bike, at cheap cost. Very best. Staff of Purple Monkey and Paithopia are awesome.

    Great staffs and location. Negatives were the bathroom and breakfast. The faucet barely had water. There was no soap at all to wash our hands after using the bathroom. The shower pressure was terrible. And the biggest issue was the toilet. It barely flushes. The room was dirty with hair and dust in the corners of the room. Breakfast was from 8:30am to 10:30pm. They offer tours that start between 7am to 8:30am. So you always missing breakfast when you go on tour.

    Not sure why the reviews are so high, the hostel was okay. Claiming to be a party hostel, it was pretty quiet most of the nights we were there. My partner and I stayed in a private room which was fine. Although, there were spiders in every corner, the bathroom had a funky smell (i'm not sure when was the last time they gave it a good scrub) and I noticed a few small ants on the bed. The price was good, but I think there are better options in the old city.

    The only good thing about this hostel is the location. It’s dirty, got no atmosphere and probably the worst hostel we’ve stayed in. This hostel could be good if it had a proper clean up but would not recommend.

    Apart from the location, not much good to say about this place. No atmosphere (most likely due to time of year) , the rooms were very basic, smelly and there was no air con so it was very difficult to sleep with the humidity. Staff were quite good.
