I stayed in DeeJay Backpackers for a period of 4 days. I stayed in a private room which was clean and quiet. The location is slightly out of the way but that is why it is quiet. Good place for sociable people wanting to make friends. The staff doesn't look particularly happy to serve.

This place has a very good social area, facilities, WiFi, lockers etc good food, however rooms are super basic. You have to pay extra for air conditioning which we wasn't made aware on the website. Bathroom was dirty. Only cleaned every other day. Cockroaches in our bathroom. Toilet didn't flush properly. Must have a shortage of toilet roll as none... More

My partner and I just stayed here and weren't too happy. Grumpy staff, dirty rooms, shower didnt drain for a long time so bathroom was flooded and it was hotter than outside. But at $4 a night I guess you get what you pay for.

I loved my stay in this place, I felt comfty and safe, it is well located and the staff was helpful. I was on Christmas Eve, so they gave the guests this nice party.

This hostel is pretty relaxed, not like some other party hostels in Chiang Mai. Rooms are ok, biggest one has 4 beds, so its kinda private. Common areas are decent and there is hostel garden only 2 min away, really nice to hung out in the evenings and have a beer. Garden also offers a nice clean pool, which is... More

Ok so this wasn't the best place we stayed on our travels however we really did treat ourselves for a lot of it. But nevertheless would still return. We got a private dorm for four quite small but for what we were paying it was ideal! And we had our own bathroom and shower! We only had a fan in... More

I stayed 3 nights. The rooms are very simples and clean, but the common area and restaurant is the best of this Hostel. The guy who runs this place all the time is doing his best to make sure everybody have a good time, he made a trip to the lake and we just paid the truck gas.. Was the... More
