Stayed 4 nights in July with girlfriend. After 3 weeks of travelling in Thailand with accomodations ranging from 500-2500 TBH/night, I can say that this was the stay we most enjoyed because of a combinaton of genuine hospitality, cleanliness, location and price. The free mussli breakfast was delicious and will cost you 150 TBH on Koh Tao/ Koh Samui. The... More

I was initially hesitant at the location- it's at the back of a small street. However, I quickly realized how close it was to everything- a really great location. Both of the owners were very nice and happy to arrange tickets, transportation, and events to me. Room was very clean and had good AC. Highly recommend.

The location is very central and close to Tai Pai gate, which was brilliant. The manager Keith went out of his way to be helpful, thank you. The upstairs rooms had paper thin walls so it was possible to even hear the couple sniffing next door.

We stayed there for 3 nights. It was such a nice place, calm and just beside the old city. Everything was great. We had 2 rooms with aircons. Breakfast is included and the lady is so nice. We felt really welcome. Definetly a place to go if you want a nice and quiet spot !

We initially booked for 2 nights but enjoyed our visit so much we extended another 1 night. The owner was extremely helpful. He gave us recommendations on transport to Chiang Rai, the weekly night market, where to find the ATM and mini mart. He even gave directions to a camera shop when our GoPro attachment broke. The room was cute... More

We stayed here for 6 nights over Songkran and absolutely loved it. Nice location which is about 10 minutes walk from the east gate, so quiet enough for a good nights sleep but close enough to the action. Breakfast was good, eggs and bacon with toast or musli and fruit. Rooms were nice with good air con and all windows... More

Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation, location is perfect, but the real gem is the host, absolutely fantastic, let us check in and chill in the communal area early and even did us a late breakfast. Keith is really chilled knows local tourist activities well and has a great knowledge of the wider Thai and Asian area for... More

Hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Amazing location, so close to everything in central Chiang Mai. The owners are super friendly and so helpful, will gladly help you with tips and recommendations and with booking activities. Rooms and shared bathroom area are spotlessly clean, spacious and well equipped. Cannot think of a single negative! Highly recommended! Don't... More

Keith is from the UK and it was very easy to get good advice on anything we needed. We felt comfortable from the minute we got there and it was very peaceful and relaxing. They have a shared bathroom and showers but they are very clean and great showers. I also sprained my ankle and they were really accommodating with... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. Rooms were nice & clean, as were the communal area and toilets/showers. Really like the communal area as it was good for meeting people and had a nice atmosphere at breakfast (which was also really tasty). Both people were really helpful whenever we needed it and so chilled out! I would definitely recommend it. Good... More
