When I reached this hostel, the host gave me very warm welcome, I felt like home... The room is clean and environment is quite, very satisfied for the rate i paid for it. The common area serve coffee, tea, bread and some biscuit throughout the day, this is a plus. Not a good location as this hostel is located north-west... More

Nice small family run business. They always have coffee and toast available in the common area. Laundry facilities available. Room had LOTS of mosquitos. Bathrooms were a little old, but kept clean and tidy. Guesthouse provided "towels" that were just large sheets. Location is a little far from the heart of things in Chiang Mai. Quieter area that's a little... More

This was by far the most beautiful guesthouse I stayed in Thailand. The price was 10 EUR/ person/night, including simple breakfast (coffe, tea, toast, jam, butter). The terrace is in the middle of a big garden. The vibe is relaxing and home-like. Me and my friend stayed in private double room. It was big, clean with nice details. The owners... More

The staff really makes this place. Very helpful and willing to take the time to guide you and offer suggestions. When I couldn't find a tuk tuk the owner himself ferried me in his car. Nicest guy. The rooms are basic and what you should expect for the price, but clean and comfortable.

First off, I am not usually one to write reviews but this place deserves the praises. From the amazing family that runs the hostel, to the resident rooster that is roaming the grounds, Gongkaew became like a second home to my friends and I and we will truly miss it. It is quite possibly the cleanest hostel that I have... More

A friend and I arrived here after a long bus ride from Bangkok and we were able to check in early free of charge. The place is huge with an awesome common area outside (which is lacking in most places more central). Bathrooms were kept clean and well stocked with toilet paper and the showers actually got hot. It definitely... More

I had booked into another place that was actually full when I arrived and they had suggested I come here. I was spacious and very clean with nice helpful staff. In found the atmosphere to be less communal than other hostels.

This hostel was fine...not great, not terrible, just ok. The property is nicely wooded and is a good change from being on a city block, but I didn't like that the toilets and showers were not in the same building, so to speak, as the rooms or that they were not very clean. It is also not in a very... More

I stayed here as a solo backpacker, and loved it. The owners are so caring & helpful, and are very passionate about the place which makes a massive difference. Dorm Rooms are basic, but clean. The hostel has a central garden which has hammocks, beds etc...a great place to meet other travellers. Free toast, coffee & tea is provided all... More
