Coming from a helpx work exchange situation with bugs and no AC, this hostel was great. Clean room with actual windows, linens and AC. Paradise! However the two receptionists I encountered on day 1 of being here have the permanent "beotch face" going on. They just appear so unfriendly and could care less about helping you. Today is actually my... More

I have been staying one week in So Hostel. I have gained quite a lot of great time and friends at here. The shower rooms are small, maybe the hostel management can expand the space by making 6 shower rooms to 3 shower rooms, ha. The lobby and kitchen are huge, a good place for us perform the cooking skill,... More

The dorms are nice and clean with good shared bathroom facilities. There is a kitchen area where you can cook your own food. While the common area is really nice, it is too big with too many separate groups.

The staff was absolutely terrible. They barely speak English and are not the slightest bit helpful. They send you off to other services if you need anything at all. They are rude and ruin the experience 100%. They put you in a bitter mood and truly ruin your whole day. I dreaded coming back to the hostel because I didn't... More

I went with my friends to this hostel in Chiang Mai in February 2014. Since it was the first time over there, we weren't sure of what to expect. The place is THE BEST. We were 5 people so we got to stay in a room altogether. Room was clean when we got it and it was cleaned every day... More

Ask about the packages before you pay because if you book an activity through the hotel they give you a free night or a discounted rate but if you do it afterwards they won't give you the deal. The rooms were clean but the bathrooms were stinky and made me wish I had shower shoes. Not much of a social... More

For starters I'll state why I think it is a bit overpriced - no breakfast included. There are many other hostels around where you can get a free breakfast for a very similar price. However the hostel is very clean and the beds are large and comfortable, each bed has its own plug and light, the wifi works quite well... More

My friend recommended SOHOstel to me after he had visited so I booked in advance. It is super clean and has a great social area. It is quite a big hostel and when I went in March it wasnt at its full potential with only 3 floors open. Despite this I met some great people and it was really close... More
