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

Read some reviews online and this seemed like a good place to stay but we were wrong. There was a lot of partying going on until 3am even though the signs say to keep quiet after 10pm. Rooms were dirty, no garbage can in room and there was no toilet paper. When showering the bathroom leaked into the bedroom all... More

Ok so its supposed to be sociable. I met a few nice people but too many kids tapping on their phones. You have access to a pool 50m away which is great. Its about a 15 minute walk to Johns bar. Being a little closer to the moat would be a bonus. Ive stayed in some dirty hostels and don't... More

Stayed here a few weeks ago and had a great couple of days. The rooms aren't the nicest but they do the job. Great place to meet people and everyone is so friendly. Good pool And bar just up from hostel too. The pool bar does great food - carbonara is a must. Only bad thing was if you make... More

Although this place was very popular with a lot of people, I really did not see the appeal. The room we got was very small and cramped with only one fan. The bathroom was dirty and beyond basic. The staff were not very friendly or helpful. Would not recommend staying here.

Overall I had a nice stay at the Deejai. It wasn't noisy at night, had a room with aircon (important! Without ac you won't get much sleep). Very nice and cosy entrance area, staff generally friendly but the best thing was definitely the Deejai Garden with bar and pool just 100m down the road. Such a great place! The only... More

Love this place, it's clean, friendly staff, beautiful gardens, good facilities. I recommend getting an air conditioned dorm instead of fan, for only 50b more. The communal area is a few meters down the road, with a bar, pool, pool table and tree house with hammocks, and sometimes live music. Cheap for what it is, 150b for a dorm bed... More
