I chose this hostel for its social reputation and the fact that you could get a private room for under $20 a night. It delivered on both of those counts. I met lots of great people in the lobby who I was able to hang out with. Otherwise, it's fairly average. The bedspread was dirty, lots of bugs in the... More

When I first checked into Deejai's, I saw my room (a four bed dorm with fan) and considered asking for my money back. It's basic as basic can be in terms of the room. But within 12 hours I felt I could stay here for months. After the first night, I upgraded to a room with air con because the... More

We stayed in a dorm room with a fan for a few nights at this hostel. Luckily I knew the people I stayed in a room with as it was very cramped, dark and dingy, so I wouldn't have wanted to have been with strangers!! The room was unbearably hot the whole time. There was a standard fan in the... More

It's simple. Bunk beds, AC, and a bathroom. It was clean and cheap. It's a great place to meet other back packers.The manager was awesome and everyone is just super nice and there to have a good time. If you're there before check-in or want to keep your stuff there after check-in they have a locker room which is open... More

The first room we stayed in here was the basic dorm in which we found a cockroach and toad waiting to welcome us in the bathroom. The room was very dirty, dead insects on the floor, mould, dampness- it was just horrible. After mentioning this to reception we did get an upgrade to a private room where the hot water... More

I stayed her during Songkran, so the hostel was a bit crazy. My room was pretty gross as it had a shower and no ventilation, mildew was the scent of my room. They had a kitchen there that did standard breakfast. They also owned a facility just down the road with a very nice pool, and bar. There was a... More

No one ever leaves in time from this place. Perfect atmosphere, nice staff, new and beautiful rooms and dorms, nice garden, calm area and food for an achievable price. Loved it and highly recommend it. They also got free bbq from time to time at deejai garden, which offers a nice restaurant and chillout area, located about 2 min from... More

This is definitely a nice hostel. Nice staff and loads of backpackers stay here, so it's easy to meet many new people. It's not too expensive, but having said that, there are much cheaper places (with a more authentic atmosphere) to stay at within the city walls. Also, if you are a woman traveling by yourself, I wouldn't stay here.... More

I found my stay here to be relatively average, the staff were helpful however. More than happy to help with scooter hire, maps and cool stuff to do. It was the atmosphere I feel let it down, but in saying that nothing here was too bad. Comfortable beds and a good shower, so overall not a bad place to stay.... More
