Stayed here in April last year during the Songkrang festival. I stayed in a twin room with own facilities. Room was clean and large and the bathroom was clean as well. I saw a few larger dorms and they where dirty and I'm glad I booked a private room with my friend. The location is alright. It's a 15 min... More

I absolutely Loved it! Super sociable place to stay and meet new people. It is cheap, the rooms are clean, there is a great pool with a garden. I met great people there and would definitely recommend it! At night there is often live music and free bbq for guests.

Nice enrtrence and chill out area to meet people, staff an reception staff arnt very happy, bed was ok, room and shower wasn't very clean, on the up side their pool was nice. Just not the evnviroment for me. Coffee is good though but feels more like a restaurant than a hostel.

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.
