This place have really nailed the backpacker experience. The rooms are good value but more importantly there is a lovely sociable atmosphere. It is easy to meet people and the hostel do what they can to encourage people to socialise. Several times a week they put on free food across the road at their bar and pool. There are comfy... More

Deejai had a good atmosphere and really great communal areas including a beautiful garden and pool area. They held some cool events too. It was definitely good value for money and the staff were really helpful. It was good to have lockers but they are downstairs which can be far from your room (don't forget your own padlock). I was...

It'd be like this! Sociable, cheap, not too noisy at night. Dorms are fantastic. Our toilet broke at midnight. It was fixed before 1am. Toilet paper is free - just gotta ask. Run by two Brits who are both top guys. Stop searching now - you just found the best place in Chiang Mai.

This place is perfect for backpackers. The dorm rooms are cheap and very nice with only four people per dorm and a nice inside bathroom. The owners and staff are very friendly and make every effort to help out. The communal area is perfect for meeting fellow travellers as well. They have also constructed a new area nearby with a...

Arrived here with two other guys from England and had such an amazing week at Deejai's. It is perfectly set up to meet people and socialise and we have left with a great new group of friends. The staff add so much value to this hostel through their friendliness and knowledge of Chiang Mai. Rob running events such as evening... More

This place has a wonderful that really fits into Chiang Mai's relaxed atmosphere brilliantly. It's an excellent place to meet people and the staff are super friendly. Only problem I encountered was the building site next door, which was pretty brutal for a changover, but the management have organised with the builders not to start until 9pm, which was very...

I stayed twice in Deejai Backpackers in Chiang Mai. The dorms are clean and incredibly cheap (99 Baht/night), the location is ok, though it's a bit of a walk to the centre, they have good food and even better coffee (obviously more expensive than street food), helpful and reasonably friendly staff, lockers and a fast Wifi connection (which didn't work...

Friendly and helpful staffs. Very welcoming and cosy hangout lounge. Met life-long friends. Good restaurant with good foods. Although the price doubled the normal food price at night market. Stayed in the 4-bed mix dorm with private bathroom. beyond satisfaction as i didn't expect much for 90 baht per night. Clean room, quiet, comfy bed, and new toilet. Bring your... More

I booked a private room with an ensuite shower-room ages before arriving there. When I did, the room wasn't clean and I had to ask for this to be done. I appreciate that you're not going to get immaculate cleanliness and great customer service at a backpackers' hostel, but the room wasn't that cheap; I do expect them to at... More
