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

The vibe of the place is really cool and it's great to meet other travelers. The rooms are pretty standard and clean enough but the bed was fairly uncomfy and I couldn't get wifi in my room (3rd floor). Service was a bit poor and the staff seemed generally disorganized. But for the price I was happy overall. Would stay... More

You get what you pay for, But as a traveler doing it cheap this place was perfect! Such a great way to meet other young travelers. The food is amazing and everything is at a good price. The weekend market was truly amazing. Definitely recommend this place to young travelers looking for a cheap quality stay!

Great place! Only thing was that my friend stayed on the first floor, at night time she went out and accidentally left her purse on the bed. While she was out someone seen her purse from outside her room, broke in and took it. When she asked front desk they seemed weird about it, not pointing fingers or saying it... More

The staff here clearly hate their jobs and foreigners and are quite rude apart from the British guy who was super friendly. Our room had no wifi and a broken shower and they were difficult about giving us a key to shower in a different room. No loo roll at all- you have to go to a shop to buy... More
