We arrived at 4am since that's when the train arrived in Chiang Mai, it looked like a decent hostel from the outside so we asked if they had room and paid for one night (we were going to pay for 3-5 nights but at reception they said it was cheaper to book online, so we were going to do this...

I hate to leave such a negative review when there was one nice guy that worked at SoHostel, but I have to agree with what a previous reviewer said: all of the staff were unpleasant except the one male staff member. You got the vibe immediately at the front desk that all the female staff members hate their jobs and... More

We stayed in a 12-bed dorm here for two nights and the hostel was completely fine. It's quite modern and has a huge common area downstairs which is treat for meeting people. The bunk beds were quite rickety and all very close together, so when someone got on their bed a few bunks away, it still shook your bed as... More

I stayed here 3 times in a single room. Good air con and free WiFi. Good range of services and tours offered at the reception. Very welcoming and in a great location. An easy 10 minute walk to the Old Town. I cannot comment on the dorms as I did not use them. Very happy with my stay.

the hostel was ok, rooms and bathrooms were clean. but the staff was the unfriendliest i have ever met at a hostel. absolutely not helpful what so ever. the location is ok, if you don't want to wander the streets alone at night. internet did work alright. big common area and well equipped kitchen.

We stayed here for a night in a private room and I must say it was brilliant value for money. The only problem here is the staff do try and sell every trip available to you. This hotel is in a good location and ideal for budget travellers.

I found the hostel to be good, clean (except for the shared bathrooms sometimes), but the staff was not nearly as welcoming or friendly as I would have liked. I think sometimes they pretended to not be able to speak English so that they wouldn't have to help you. Only okay value at 400 THB per night for a dorm.... More

We stayed here for a night and So Hostel wasn't what I expected a hostel would look like. Aside from it's great location near the Night Bazaar and restaurants, you instantly feel the youthful vibe the moment you enter because of the hip interiors (mural walls, a common area where guests can mingle). Our room was also spacious and well-designed.

This place ticks all the boxes - Clean, comfortable, modern, good value and in a great location. The staff were very friendly and willing to help. Only facilities I used were the washer/dryer and they did the job - everything else looked good Lots of bars / restaurants on the same road and it has easy access to the main... More
