4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed one night in a dorm of 12 people. SOHO is new and chic place, but because I was there during Songkran, it was a bit dirty (like probably every other place too haha)! Friendly staff, comfortable bed and a nice big common area with a good kitchen! The place is quite big with plenty of rooms, so if... More

I stayed here for a one night (thankfully) layover and was not impressed. It looks modern from the outside, but inside there were a lot of ants in my room. The common area is big but stuffy and no one was hanging out there. The location is good, near the night market and easy to walk around within the main... More

Ok, it is clean and have good social areas. Otherwise they charge you for everything, the staff is very rude and trying to charge you without noticing, they are not helpful. I would highly recommend to find another good hostel in Chiang Mai, they are lots of good cheap places to stay. DO NOT BOOK THIS HOSTEL.

We stayed for 2 nights and whilst the rate was a little higher than other places it was worth it. We had a private room for 4, it was clean and we all had clean towels, there were 2 air cons and lots of plug sockets. The beds were really comfy and the shower pressure good. The room itself was...

My 2 nights here in a 20-bed dorm were surprisingly free of any hostel horror story incidents. Even though it was the holiday weekend (for Loy Krathong) and many people were traveling through Chiang Mai, this hostel room didn't get out of control wild. The beds were comfy and clean, and each has its own outlet and light. Air conditioning... More

5 friends and I checked into this hostel late January 2015. We booked the 6 bunk dorm-style room. Not much to complain about. The place has an awesome common area with a kitchen and ample seating. A group of Chinese tourists invaded our floor about five days in. They were loud, young, rude, and made a mess of the place,... More

Our group of 3 walked around for a while looking for a nice hostel to stay at, until we found sohostel. It looked nice from the outside, common area was also nice. We weren't going to book it once we walked in though since the ladies in the front we're very rude and unhelpful, but we can't turn down a... More

Guests were really noisy, some girls got into a screaming match at 12:30am that lasted for an hour and staff didn't do anything. Obnoxious guests but it would be nice if the staff had asked them to calm down. Otherwise, great value for money. Rooms are very clean, laundry facilities available.

I had to switch hotels while in Chiang Mai because I extended my visit, so I walked into Sohostel because the location is awesome. I booked one of the private rooms. It was spacious, very clean, and the bed was comfortable. The walk-in rate was 45.00 USD a night, so I'm not sure if it is less or more expensive... More
