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

A friend told us about this place. Boy, it's like Animal House gone mad. Lots of under 30 people who party half the night then come home yelling and loudly talking in the halls. Had one neighbor on the phone at 3am. If you want a good nights sleep try someplace else. On a good note, the staff is great,... More

Nice dorms (not great bathrooms). Average location. Staff not too friendly or helpful. You basically get what you pay for. Met some interesting people. They do serve a good breakfast. It has a lot of potential.

I do not understand rave reviews about this place, i must've stayed at a different Deejais. The rooms smell absolutely hideous of pure mould - 100% a damp problem. They also don't give you toilet roll in the rooms and you have to constantly ask for it and they begrudge giving it to you. The mattresses are as hard as... More

Plus side: close to Wat Pra Singh and weekend markets, good food available, swimming pool, very clean, no noise problems, rooms very clean and suitable given price Negative side: only real complaint is that there was a receptionist who insisted on us booking a private transport to Chiang Rai, even though we wanted to use cheaper public transport
