    Rooms bare bones but fine for the money. Rooftop bar was a bonus but it was Irin that made the place. Sweet, incredibly helpful and a real character. Helped with all our trips and excellent local advice. Would happily stay again.

    My friend and I planned to stay here for one night and ended up staying a week! This guesthouse is in the PERFECT location in Chiang Mai (on an adorable street with walking access to all of the popping locations). The owner is the sweetest woman in Chiang mai, and offers advice for any questions you may have! I loved this stay!

    Irin runs the Vida Guesthouse and she is a saint. I had a few concerns with my travel plans and she gave good advice and got me on my way. I had my own room with a shower and washing facilities NOT SHARED. The room was large unlike most hostels and the location is perfect. The neighborhood, like Irin, is reasonably quiet and quite friendly reflecting a full range of ages and cultural backgrounds as well as a full range of services and food and drink choices. Loved it, hated to leave.

    We arrived at 8am and lovely Sid took us straight to our room. The hostel is incredibly homely, spotlessly clean and it was so nice to have a little desk in the room. Nice rooftop for relaxing. Great value for money.

    I’ve stayed here before and would highly recommend anyone coming to Chiang Mai to stay here. The hosts are amazing and extremely helpful, they are also a tour agency and will help you out with any adventures you want.

    Great location and lovely staff. Bed isn't that comfy and facilities are very basic... but at this low price, it's definitely worth it! Thanks for a great stay. We loved the cats too! We will definitely stay again on our return to Chiang Mai.

    Cute spot! Slept very well in my single room. Generally really liked the vibe of the place and the staff was very helpful and professional. Also in a really cute street with lots of cafes nearby. If you like coffee check out Up to Good coffee!

    Definitely the best value for your money in the area. Owner was super helpful and sweet. Loved the room. I would easily stay here again if I'm back in CM. This is not a very social hostel, probably because there isn't an actual cafe (no food served here but close to endless places) and the rooftop area closes at 10, but I didn't see anyone up there during the day either. Just something to keep in mind if that's your thing, but you can go to one of the countless places nearby for that as well.

    Vida was a great value stay for 3 nights. Its right in the heart of the Old Town and the owners were super friendly. Roof top area was cool (but humid).

    There was no proper running toilet in the room I reserved - I was unaware this would be the case. The room itself did not have air conditioning and there was no separate shower. Without the fan running, the room also smelt. The host was very helpful and gracious, but unfortunately I would not stay here again.
