Simple clean rooms with good aircon and private bathrooms (4bed dorm experience) close to town and all the markets Nice restaurant and social outdoor area and the reception can book most tours for you and they do super cheap laundry! They also pair with the restaurant down the road which is also called deejai and has a pool which hostel... More

My 3 friends and I had the best time staying at Deejai Backpackers! Such is sociable hostel with good vibes. So easy to meet people, you can't beat the cheap price, the Location is good too. The rooms themselves are nothing special, Make sure you get a room with A/C. We made the mistake of booking a room without one... More

Stayed here with 2 friends in a 4 bed mixed dorm. Room was dark, broken sink, fan no aircon so it was unbearably hot! Location also wasn't great, about a 10/15 minute tuk tuk to the night market. Very sociable hotel though, everyone friendly and the laundry service was good! Pool down the road but good value food and good... More

Extended my stay here because it was so good. Met some great people here too. Lovely hostel, don't stay anywhere else if you're in Chiang mai! The staff are super friendly and helpful as well. Only negative was that wifi didn't work well in the rooms.

I thought this hostel was disgusting. The staff were incredibly unfriendly. When I got there in the morning after the night train from Lopburi and asked to check-in, the receptionist just pointed to the sign behind her that said "check-in at 2" and laughed. It was dirty, the rooms only had a curtain separating the bathroom and beds, and the... More

This place seemed to put the least amount of effort into being a hospitable hostel. Full of lots of young, first time travelers with not a lot of respect for their surroundings-blatant disregard for rules, signage or common decency. I guess it's not really a surprise, 20 something's passing through Chiangmai are not going to be well behaved. Boy I... More

Such a nice hostel. Placed in a good place and has a swimming pool down the road with such a good vibe and food. The rooms are good sized and staff are awesome and really helpful with booking buses. Coming back next time I'm in chiang mai for sure.

I've been looking for this place lol. I was kind of tired of dorms and just wanted a private room for not too much money. This place has really nice private rooms: big bed, own bathroom, balcony and a big screen tv with new movies (even a mini fridge). If I do decide to be social and get out of... More

My experience at Deejai backpackers was one I would not like to remember. Me and my friend were put in a room which can only be described as a prison cell. It was fan operated so we barely slept because of the heat, the beds were infested with bed bugs and the bathroom shower and sink plugs were always blocked.... More
