    I had such a great time here! Alex and Kate are such lovely hosts, and help with everything you need. There’s a really social and welcoming vibe, and it’s not too far from the city center. Would absolutely recommend!

    Best Hostel experience I've ever had! Staff is so kind and since the place is smaller, he really gets to know all the guests. Also perfect location! Right next to the main city center but far enough away to escape the noise. 11/10!

    Alex and Kate went above and beyond to help us out with our travel plans. As soon as you check in they take time to show you all the best places to check out and see if you haven't been in Chiang Mai before. The hostel and room were very clean and cool during warm nights. Can't recommend The Islander enough!

    Had an amazing stay at the islander. Modern and clean hostel, as a couple we stayed in a private double room which was reasonably priced. Great location just outside the old town. Our favourite part has to be the fabulous hosts, Alex and Kate, they were super helpful with booking tours etc, and super fun to hang out with- who made us strong drinks and laugh alot! Not a party hostel but very sociable place, particularly if your a solo traveller or a couple.

    This hostel definitely lived up to its stellar reviews. Alex and Kate clearly care a ton about making The Islander the best it can be. It’s not a party hostel by any stretch and many of the folks there were around our age (30) which was nice (21 year olds can be a lot to handle in large doses). Beds were super comfy and the WiFi worked great. Would absolutely stay here again if I found myself in Chiang Mai.

    I really enjoyed my time in this hostel, it was my first one and I didn’t know what to expect from it. Alex and Kate are really lovely and welcoming and take time to talk to you. It attracts nice people and it’s a sociable environment. Beds are comfy and rooms are nice and cool. I would definitely recommend staying here and would return myself.

    Great hostel to get a goodnight sleep at. Really helpful owners, great tips for things from food to nights out. Not a lot of people there was the only drawback for me. Although it did seem to be getting a bit busier as I was leaving

    Solid place but nothing remarkable or imaginative. Just a clean space to lay your head at a fair price.
