    One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Alex is a truly wonderful host and made it really easy, particularly for solo travellers, to meet up with new people. It's very clean, secure and great value for money all round - I can't recommend enough. A great location too.

    Had a brilliant week in Chiang Mai staying here. Alex and Kate were excellent hosts happy to give advice about places to see and things to do in the city. The rooms and facilities were very clean and the hostel was in an ideal location - on a quiet street only a short walk away from the old city. It wasn’t a party hostel being quite small in size, however, it was very social with Alex and Kate putting a lot of effort in to help everyone socialise and even taking us out for drinks a few times.

    Really great stay here. Alex was a super host and tried to make the stay as social as possible by introducing all the guests and getting us away on trips together. The hostel was clean and in a great location. A good place for lone travellers. All the other guests were great fun - I think it's the sort of place which attracts good travellers/holidaymakers.

    Ticks all the boxes - a clean, pleasant and well-located place to stay. What really stood out though was the atmosphere. Alex really gets to know you and is happy to introduce you to other people or suggest stuff you can do together - as a result I always had people to go exploring with. Most of Alex’s suggestions are stuff that’s free. We also went on a jungle trek on one day, we booked this through the hostel and had a really good time! Overall great vibe and a memorable stay

    Alex and Kate are fantastic hosts! This place is close to all the markets, clean, comfortable beds - not too hard like most here. Great showers. It’s not a party hostel but it is a social hostel. Alex makes it a point to introduce all the guests, get groups together who are interested in ding the same things whether it’s walking around the markets, temples, heading to the bars or just chilling on the front porch. Super friendly and a really great time.

    Had a fantastic stay at The Islander! Alex and Kate are so friendly and gave me loads of information and help to make the most out of my stay. The dorm is great value for money and was really clean, the beds are super comfy as well. The location is great with just a short walk to the local markets. I’d highly recommend staying at the Islander and I will definitely be back again!!

    Had a great stay at the islander. the owner Alex and his girlfriend were really helpful and provided us with lots of information about attractions around Chiang Mai. They also helped us to organise a cooking class! The accommodation is very basic but comfortable and clean. It’s close enough that you can walk into the square but far enough that it is quiet at night which is nice!
