I've been almost a month in there, I love the people who work in there, the cleaners, the people behind the reception, the mother of the owner, and of course the manager, Adam, an English guy who help me in anyway he could and before I left I said that lucky he is there to organise EVERYTHING otherwise that place...

Ok so this wasn't the best place we stayed on our travels however we really did treat ourselves for a lot of it. But nevertheless would still return. We got a private dorm for four quite small but for what we were paying it was ideal! And we had our own bathroom and shower! We only had a fan in... More

I stayed 3 nights. The rooms are very simples and clean, but the common area and restaurant is the best of this Hostel. The guy who runs this place all the time is doing his best to make sure everybody have a good time, he made a trip to the lake and we just paid the truck gas.. Was the... More

This hostel was recommended to me by friends I met while travelling. It's really cheap, 120 baht a night, and great value, also it is very clean! The hostel also owns a bar/ garden/ pool across the road which is very social and all the staff are brilliant with great English! Rob in the bar recommended a great camp for... More

Deejai is a basic hostel with a good social area. The rooms are fairly clean but do not have air-con, and the Wi-Fi is only available in the reception. We stayed in the three person room for 2 nights. One major drawback is that the rooms do not lock properly and the lockers are far too small to fit all... More

It had a nice social lounge area down bottom and the outside entrance way but the room left a lot to be desired. The powerpoint didn't have enough power to charger my phone, lights didnt work in the room, no toilet paper, toilet flush was very poor, no towels, windows didn't lock and swung open to anyone. It was only... More

I chose this hostel for its social reputation and the fact that you could get a private room for under $20 a night. It delivered on both of those counts. I met lots of great people in the lobby who I was able to hang out with. Otherwise, it's fairly average. The bedspread was dirty, lots of bugs in the... More

When I first checked into Deejai's, I saw my room (a four bed dorm with fan) and considered asking for my money back. It's basic as basic can be in terms of the room. But within 12 hours I felt I could stay here for months. After the first night, I upgraded to a room with air con because the... More
