I never write reviews, but after staying here, I felt it was the least I could do. The owners are absolutely wonderful. Almost OCD when it comes to the cleanliness of their place (they even separate bottle caps and recycle out back), they were still friendly and went out of their way for you. The location is excellent and Nud is extremely knowledgable, with some of the lower rates from tours/trips/visa runs I've experienced (even compared to hostels). Yes, you pay a little bit more (no more than the lousiest place down in south Thailand), but the free breakfast, coffee and tea is makes it worth it, alone. If you ask Nud a question about Chiang Mai or the surrounding area, he'll give you a map and 5 mins of his time to point out all the great spots.
I couldn't understand why anyone would have anything bad to say about this place, and then realized that the people complaining on Trip Advisor probably considered this a hotel (no mini fridge in the room?! harumph!) There's a fridge, toaster, microwave, hot water and a huge selection of coffees and teas in the common area. Even comes with a large paper sheet detailing how each tea works for the body. It's clearly a large guesthouse when you see it, so settle in to Thai hospitality and style.
Oh, and has free wifi that works really well! A rarity here.
