    Clean and comfortable, with a basic kitchen and a good common area, which would've been great if there were more people there at the time! Location isn't too close to central chiang mai, but this means the hostel is quiet and safe at night. Lots of information, free basic breakfast, and helpful staff. Showers were great!

    Booked my stay here based on reviews and as a solo traveler, it seemed like the perfect spot to meet people. However when I got here it was out of the way of the old town and the room was hot, stuffy, and smelled like a teenage boys room. I ended up staying at a different hostel closer to the backpacker area and bars. Overall, even if the social atmosphere was better (its low season so not many people around in general), the room was way too hot to be comfortable
