I absolutely felt at home at this hostel. The atmosphere was great, the people and last but least the staff was nice and friendly. The dorms were clean and nice. Hot showers and Nice facilities. I really enjoyed my stay here for the two nights. Breakfast was available in the reception and it was pretty cheap (saying this, coming from... More

The atmosphere at this hostel is awesome. Really easy to meet people and have a great time. The common area and the pool/bar down the road are both really cool. However, the rooms are dirty, small and uncomfortable. We didn't have beds only mattresses on the floor. Not amazing but not the worst.

Such an amazing atmosphere here if you're backpacking and want to meet people! We didn't get an AC room but had two fans in which was more than adequate it was clean and the beds were comfy. Everyone sits downstairs and you all drink together and go out on the town. The swimming pool (down the road) is amazing with... More

Deejai has a great atmosphere and common space to hang out and meet people in. Access to a pool is another bonus. The rooms are nothing special. The reception staff was totally unfriendly and seemed genuinely pissed off when I asked them anything. That being said they did their job, just don't expect a warm welcome.

I didn't like my stay in Deejai and will never go back. The people party in the garden until 3-4am and you can here every word and laugh because the rooms overlook the garden. The rooms are not clean (sheets and bathroom). The light in the bathroom was broken during our stay - they promised to fix it 5 times... More

I stayed in a private single room during my stay and it was pleasant, quiet, clean, and the room was of top quality. Food was basic, a little pricey, but tasted good. The staff were helpful. I will return here in the future.

I stayed here with a group of friends who had been here previously. I absolutely loved the place. The atmosphere is amazing and all the staff are super friendly and helpful. I stayed here for about 2 weeks in total split up with a visit to Pai and would go back every time. As well as the actual hostel there... More

I find this hostel on hostelbookers.com and read the reviews. I knew that it's the place I want to stay. Like the reviews say, the rooms are basically clean, but in the dorms they only clean the bathroom or empty the garbage bin if someone checks out. You don't get toilet paper if you don't ask for it. The rooms... More

The location isn't bad and the price is reasonable, however the staff are selfish and obnoxious with absolutely no respect for their guests. The manager himself provided no assistance for me and my friend after we encountered trouble staying at the hostel. Instead he distanced himself from the situation and made up lame excuses on why he couldn't help us.... More

A great hostel for meeting other travellers. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm that had its own bathroom. The room was slightly damp and had a broken bed but apart from that served its purpose. Our room was on the bottom floor, a little way away from reception - this meant that Wifi wasn't great and we could not... More
