Very sociable hostel, conveniently located for getting in to and around Chiang Mai. Staff are great, will book tours and transport for you, and are generally friendly and helpful. I met lots of people travelling alone here, which is ideal when youre doing the same. Great hostel!

I stayed here last year and came back for more! No doubt it can be a bit of a party hostel at times, but that just demonstrates the friendly atmosphere brought about by a good mix of travellers. The staff are also great, one in particular gave us some good advice regarding riding to Pai, and on our return gave... More

I enjoyed staying here, it's not the cleanest of hostels, the bathrooms could do with some work, but other than that I loved it here. We stayed for 4 nights. Mainly because of the staff, the staff are so friendly, they have a fridge where you can help yourself to beverages, and you pay when you check out, a very... More

Spicythai is a good place to stay with criends with a helpful staff and free breakfast. Besides that, the rest of the place is ok. The place is Clean, but rooms are too crowded and the price is not as cheap as other places, the çocation could be betterr, but if you are not very demandin, is a good option.

Pretty cheap hostel just outside of the main square in Chiang Mai. Rooms are basic, wifi can be tempremental, beds are ok, rooms are kept clean and you get breakfast included (toast, bananas, tea and coffee). The showers are downstairs and semi-outside, which means that although it is kept clean, small bugs do get in. The hostel in general does... More

I stayed here for almost 4 weeks (or more) in all in my two month trip of Thailand. And easily this place was the best in all respects. For a solo traveller looking to meet lots of people there can't be a better place than the breakfast table/common room of Spicythai. The hostel is 10-12 minute walk from the city... More

Upon hearing other reviews, we decided to give this place a shot. Only dorm rooms so if you like privacy, don't stay here. The biggest complaints are the mosquitos and other backpackers. It's hard to keep anything charged when there are only a couple of plugs in the room and someone is using them for all of their electronics. If... More

I had an amazing time staying here. Yes, in some ways it is a little basic, but that is more than made up for with the atmosphere. If you are a solo traveler, then I would recommend this place. most of the people there were traveling by themselves, and this made it easier to socialize. The staff members were great,... More

This hostel is good for 1st time solo backpackers but it's very far from the center. It's a good hostel if you want to socialize, if you want a good night's sleep pick something else. Facilities needs an upgrade, not enough sockets, wifi is dodgy. Staff was accommodating but there was no one at reception at 8am and I wasn't... More

This is a great place to stay if you're travelling alone and want to meet people. The dorm rooms are fine, the bathroom isn't great upstairs but the showers downstairs are adequate. Nice communal area. I only stayed one night because I was passing through but ended up going out with a big group of people so that was good.... More
