The kids enjoyed the pool the whole day. Even if this hotel is not really cental. they offer a bus-service twice a day to the city center, which is sufficient. we enjoyed... More

Joy's House blew us away with their hospitality, beautiful ambience, and genuine Thai kindness and happiness. From picking us up from the train station, to discovering our free room upgrade and beautiful room decorations for our honeymoon, our welcome dinner, and lots and lots of Joy's Houseparty drinks and midnight swimming in the beautiful pool, we couldn't find a fault...

We also appreciated breakfast and diner which was made and served by the kids. Nice pool area, good massage. House very lovely decorated. All... More

Joy's house was excellent. The staff were very friendly and the whole place was an experience. The open air breakfast room is lovely. There is a free mini bus service into Chang Mai twice daily and this takes about 15 minutes each way and it is great for seeing the sites and the night markets. Joy' s house has a... More

Our family was traveling to Thailand for the first time and Joy's house came recommended by a local family. We had a great time! They had terrific breakfast outside every morning…the pool was nice and fun and they helped us get drivers when we wanted to do an excursion. They also provided day trips themselves. This is a lovely family... More

I can't say enough good things about Joy's House. The guest house itself is lovely with big, comfortable rooms, lots of open spaces, a nice pool, and an overall environment that is warm and welcoming. The staff, many of whom were residents at the shelter, are terrific. They are smart, mature, helpful, and have excellent command of English. They served... More

A fantastic place with a real sense of family. The accommodation is very comfortable, and the youth who run it make you feel very welcome. By staying here, you can know you are putting some good back in the world.

This accommodation is one in a million. As a single mum travelling with just her 3 year old daughter, this was a very daunting trip. However at Joy's house we were made to feel completely at home, one of the family. We stayed for 1 week but could have stayed much much longer. The food was amazing, staff wonderful and... More

Joys House is accomadation that stays with you. The staff, Childrens Foundation and animals are all incredible. You really feel like your apart of something so special it's very hard to leave. Do yourself a favour and experience this special Guesthouse we loved every minute of our 8 nights at Joy's House.
