We are in Chiang Mai for 10 days and enjoying the welcoming cool comfort of White House. BP and his family are unintrusive and helpful. Love the honesty system of a range of drinks you just record as you go. Very homely, the garden is very communal. Location excellent. Big thanks to BP.

I can understand that this place is the institution for backpackers visiting Chiang Mai...but i have been to several old timer backpackers hostels that just dont look this bad. The bathroom is quite dirty, but warm water is steady and working fine. But the rest of the place, eg: mattres, sheets pillow, floor, balcony, windows, definitely look as old as... More

The White House was a great quiet hotel for us. The best part about it was that the room and garden stayed COOL throughout the day which was amazing!!! It's always shaded and somehow has a little micro climateb going on. Some of the rooms have little smoking rooms attached to th back which we liked, and the hangout area... More

It started off wonderfully, greeted with a smile and escorted up to our room, but then when that door opened, it all went down hill from there. The white bed sheets were grey and dirty - what looked like blotches of dry liquid. The blankets were old and thin, which gave it a worn towel feel to it. One night... More

Had a lovely stay here with my boyfriend for ten days. Best value for your money in the area. BP is an excellent host, he greeted us with warmth and bubbling enthusiasm. We had a very nice room with a/c for 500 a night. The hotel surrounds a very lush peaceful garden that is great for drinking your coffee and... More

A nice hostel in the centre of Chiang Mai but down a quiet lane so you escape the noise of the city. Our host was very welcoming. We wanted to stay another night but they were fully booked so unfortunately had to move on. The wifi in the room was not great but they don't advertise wifi in the rooms... More
