If you're looking for a European style hostel in Chiang Mai that has a good atmosphere, Deejai is the place to be. Helpful staff, facilities are totally fine --- the pool area and restaurant/bar is really nice, and a fun place to hang out on a hot day or at night when there is a BBQ. My tip would be... More

Has separate pool and bar restaurant. BBQ almost every night. Rob does a perfect job. Highly recommend, inside old city. Close to cheap food and good times. I... More

Deejai has its positive and negative aspects. On the negative, it is true that the rooms average on the very dirty. (unclean sheets, cigarette butts all over the place ..etc..) Of all the places I stayed in Thailand, this is one where the least effort is put on cleanliness. We warned the staff our sewer drain was backing up a... More

The hostel has amazing facilities for people looking to meet other travelers (as well as just lounging around). Some of the rooms don't have a/c which can be hard to deal with at night in Chiang Mai. In my room I had issues with another traveler who kept leaving all the windows wide open. Drinks at the bar are relatively... More

Stayed here for a few days in February 2014, it's great value for the price! We paid 120 baht for a bed in a 4-bed dorm room. Room was clean with a fan and hot showers. Staff were really helpful with directions and booking onward travel and even offered to drive us to the tiger kingdom for a fraction of... More

We stayed here after spicy Thai was full. It is cheap enough at 120b a night for a dorm room. I would prefer to sleep out on the street. We were showed to our room which I'm not sure had been cleaned since it was built. The sheets hadn't been changed and the pillows were filthy. The bathroom was okay... More
