I really enjoyed this hostel. It is perfect for a solo traveller as they organise plenty of nights out and in house meals. There is a big communal space with a TV and movies for a laid back day or evening. The hostel was very clean and the showers were very good. There is a food van just outside that... More

Stayed there for a couple of nights over the New Year's Eve week with a friend. People who worked at the hostel were so friendly and welcoming. They try their best to assist you in any way they can. The attraction is that they make everyone feel like a family member and they maintain good values and principles, which they... More

We stayed 6 days at SpicyTai and we loved our time there. The hostel was clean and nearby everything you needed. The staff was very helpful when we were planning our activities. The hostel had different activities each day which was a great way to meet new people and explore the city. I enjoyed my stay.

I had such an awesome time at Spicythai! The staff is so awesome and helpful and there were always great activities to do in the evenings so you really got to know the other guests. It is easy walking distance from the old city, or a short tuk tuk to the bars or airport.

Beds were dirty when we checked in, had to change them ourselves. Stains everywhere. Filthy floors, the place is not cleaned often. Dog poop on the floor for hours as there is a new puppy but no clear owner.

The atmosphere here is what made us want to stay for over a week. It's so communal, with the hostel organising cheap trips or things to do in the evening meaning that if you are a lone traveller or someone who loves to socialise, you can meet great people. The staff and the owner really helped us to find things... More

Spicythai Backpackers is the ideal hostel for those looking to have fun, stay in an incredibly social environment, and be offered a new adventure every day. The Hostel is a converted house with a great common area where you can watch one of 100's of films, or hang around the main table socializing with other travellers. The dormitories were well...

Everyday the hostel organizes an activity and it is always so much fun. we went bowling, movie, night out, sports,... if you traveling by yourself, this is the place to be. Very social and fun....

Hostel is very clean, plenty of room in the dorms and shower facilities are ok (ladies go in the first shower on the left and you can get some hot water!). Also a hairdryer in the bathroom! Hostel organises loads of social events like pub crawl, dinner nights in, bowling, waterfall trip etc etc which is great. They also have... More
