Do not stay here. This place feels like a creepy old hospital. Rooms are disgusting and the bathrooms are almost unusable. Bad service, staff are rude and dismissive. The breakfast which was included, was a choice of 3 " sets" were very basic and gross. Don't stay here. Bad value for money. Check out diva hostel instead.

We spend three nights at this hostel in a superior room. The room's very spacious and clean and we had a nice view over the mountains. You van chopsticks between having breakfast at the hostel or making free use of the swimming pool of the hotel next door. Acces to the pool otherwise costs 100 baht. Great hostel, good service....

Because the night train was fully booked, we had to take the night bus to Chiang Mai. We arrived at 7 am and hardly slept in those 9 hours. We were exhausted. But then we found La Mar hostel. At 8.30 am we could already check in, it was 650 bath for 2 persons including breakfast. We took a warm... More

We stayed here after checking out of the Eurana hotel next door. The hotels must be linked as you can use Eurana's lovely swimming pool whilst staying here. If you have to choose between free use of the pool or breakfast opt for the pool (the breakfast was very minimal and really not worth while, although you get a nice... More

Fair price for private room with AC in Chiang Mai. Walls are a but thin, but you get what you pay for, bring earplugs. Some staff was fairly ambivalent, but the young girl with glasses was excellent very sweet and helpful at making bookings. Room was very clean with clean sheets and comfortable bed and cafe has nice juices.

Great location!! Away from the busy avenues and close to markets, restaurants and massage houses. Staff helped us booking awesome activities and the breakfast was very good. Room was spacious and we had free internet.

For the two nights in Chiang Mai I stayed in this hostel. It's located in a little quiet lane but in the middle of the backpackers area. Restaurants, markets and shops are all around; the Sunday Night Walking Street is just a few minutes walking distance. Staff is friendly and helpful. Included breakfast is small but at least you get... More

The best thing about the place is the price. Room fine. Walls are stick thin (lots of drunk people staggering in early hours. The walls are so thin you can hear everything - ie, people having sex). Breakfast wasn't too flash - very basic toast and fruit. Staff weren't very helpful. We asked one member of staff (young guy with... More

The rooms are all new and very clean, I think for that price you can't get something better! The stuff is absolutely helpful an totally friendly and the location can't be better: directly in the old town near to a little nice market! The breakfast is good and if you pay 100 bath extra you can even use the pool... More
