we arrived with no reservation, but thankfully Deejais had a room for us. We only planned 2 nights, when the person I was traveling with got unexpectedly very sick with Dengue fever. Everyone at Deejais was SO helpful, especially Teya who drove us to the hospital many times. We were so happy that the Deejai-family helped us out! We could... More

Initially booked 5 nights at this place but only ended up staying 1. Checked in at 11pm, and got a room with no air con, as you can imagine in 35 degree heat it was like a sauna, they had one fan in the room rotating which didn't even air the top bunks so was pretty pointless for me. Slept... More

Had an amazing time in Chiang Mai staying here. Met so many great people! The hostel pool is just over the road and is also a great way to meet others from around the world. Rob is so good at his job and will go out of his way to help you. They even drove the three of us to... More

This place was great! Loads of people to chat too & its run by great staff! The beds are super comfy and the bathrooms are nice! Preferred dorms to the private rooms as they werent as nice! Booked our tours and busses through the hostel aswell and was great! Not great wifi though!

I think Deejais is the genius creation of someone who couldn't find the ideal hostel to stay in so they created it themselves. The second property down the street with the bar and pool is always fun and the private rooms even have a balcony and mini fridge.

This hostel is great for the price but the rooms without air con are unbearable! We stayed two nights and hardly slept because it was too hot and sticky in our dorm room. The room. Was very small (4 beds) and the fan wasn't effective. We moved on to another hostel because of the heat in the rooms. Great social... More

Booked this place the day before we arrived after hearing only good things from other travellers. Arrived to friendly staff and was easy to pay. During our time we also booked to do a day with elephants and a cooking course which was easily sorted out and paid. The hostel also offered us discounts. Hostel itself is nice and pretty,... More

Stayed for 2 weeks on and off whilst we did various trips round Chiang Mai. Hostel dorms are quite average but the rest of the hostel is nice (it has a good outside chil area and pool) and the breakfast selection is amazing (for Asia as a westerner) and very cheap. Location is ok, but a bit of a trek... More

Stayed here in a private A/C room, paid 500 Thb per night. The room was ok, en suite bathroom was always wet and dripping water. The internet never worked, staff too busy catering the masses of people that were here. This hostel is too big for my liking, the outside lobby was filled with shoes (common in Thailand). The building... More

Visited on a poor recommendation, was in a tiny cramped 4 bed fan dorm, the bathroom was dirty and the room itself not much better. I came here over another recommendation as they have a pool. Don't bother if that's your reason for coming, that's not clean either. Oh and the Wi-Fi was painfully slow. All in all I was... More
