I have not written a bad review in two months, but I feel that Sohostel deserves one, as I wish I hadn't stayed here. Overall the worst thing about this hostel is the staff and vibe. I've never come across ruder Thai people in 6 weeks of travel. The ladies at the front desk are unhelpful and rude even when... More

It's a big hostel. Lot of dorms, lot of people all the time walking around. I've been there at the Sonkran Festival, so I don't know how is it in the rest of the year, but when I've been there it was crazy. Well, talking about the dorms, the rooms are very good. A large (and hard as everyone in... More

This hostel (can be fooled as a hotel) was perfect for us! (Me and girlfriend) only a short walk to main patty area, big common area everyone drinks at before going out, toilets clean, room very well air conditioned, stayed here for songkran and loved it!

Clean.. Modern.. Good location. The reception can arrange a lot of tours and activities for you. Staff can be a little stand off ish (hence 4 not 5 stars) but nothing to worry about. There are lots of places to eat and bars nearby so happy days. Even has a kitchen if you want to save money eating out and... More

For a hostel, certainly a good service! The location is the best part of it, walking distance to every hot spot in town! Clean and organized also! The little inconvenience is what is quite common in Thailand, staff has a poor English which makes it a little hard if you need more information. I stayed for 3 nights in a... More

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
