Lovely little hostel with a beautiful garden area and a smiling, very accommodating owner named Aoi, who is the star feature of the hostel.
Like the accommodation itself, Aoi is laidback and entertaining to hang around. She also knows a lot about the city and has some good connections for transport and places to go.
In a secluded side street, a little off the beaten track, I stayed here for a few days last summer just as they were still making the finishing touches to some of the rooms.
It's within good walking distance to the famous Chiang Mai Women's Prison Massage Centre as well as some lovely restaurants hidden away like Blue Diamond The Breakfast Club.
I took Aoi's recommendation of visiting her friend, Da for an authentic Thai cooking course at his beautiful home 'Da's Organic Farm Hut' out in the serene country side.
It was definitely a highlight and a worthy testament to the great company Aoi keeps.
A wonderful recommendation indeed.
The rooms are basic but comfortable enough for travellers with simple needs and the relaxed atmosphere of the surroundings and friendly staff make you feel very at peace while you read a book in the garden or get to know some of the fellow travellers.
I would most certainly stay here again.
