    The best place to stay in Chiang Mai. Vida is located right in the center of Chiang Mai.The rooms are basic, quite and clean and every room has is own bathroom. The rooftop is perfect to chill. The best are the owners. They try to help you with almost everything. Even now during corvid, the guesthouse is still open.

    I LOVE THIS HOSTEL! We booked for 2 nights but stayed over a week! Chill rooftop, colorful vibe, adventure booking and motorbike delivery through the front desk. The staff is great. Perfect backpacker stop. Excellent location. The office closes at 8 so you’re given a key to the side gate after hours. No A/C but the fans were enough, chilly nights. One negative: thin walls, but that means people have to be quiet and it’s not a party hostel. BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK! Love Vida! Will stay again!

    The best place that i stayed at in Thailand !! Great value for money! Own private room for the price that you'd pay to stay in dorm/hostel. Small, yet very clean and comfortable rooms, with all the basic amenities. Beds, a bit hard, but nothing you cant handle. Clean fresh linen. Great location, not too bustley.Beautiful rooftop chill area. Very friendly and helpful staff! Would definitely stay here again :) Lol at the hanging xmas tree ornament! Its a trap for tall people! 🤣 (inside joke) 😏😂

    This is a very affordable place to stay. The wifi didn't work well on my floor or on the rooftop, so that is something to consider if you need it from your room. The accommodation was pretty basic but clean for the price.

    Just be careful when you book to note the *only cold water in the shower* room option. Staff and location were very good.

    Nice if you want your own room, but its not the cleanest place ever. Cute little garden areas and the solo rooms have tiny backyards, which is nice.

    I stayed one night at Vida. The ladies at the front desk were amazing! They answered all of my questions and even offered to book bus rides and attractions for me. They provided guidance navigating town. The room itself was disappointing. I booked a private standard room. It felt closed off and stuffy. With no AC it was a hot night. Thin walls made for a noisy evening.
