I was met with a very warm welcome! I booked a standard room, which was huge! Exceptionally clean, with a comfy bed, good a/c, fridge and good shower pressure with hot water. No noise issues at all. My room was cleaned each day, with fresh towels supplied. The location is right next to the Thapae gate which makes it easy... More

Nice, clean and good value for money hostel in the city center of chiang mai. The hostel is located on the road but it's very quit inside which is great! The rooms are fine with a great, soft, bed. Friendly staff who makes you feel at home every time you come in.

Fantastic location, very central and close to the best coffee bar in town: Overstand. The people are friendly the place is clean and the mattresses of the beds are great! You can have a drink there or eat ( they even have wine) outside our in an air conditioned room. Prices are ok for what you get and the location.

This place is so good that this is my second time to stay here. The rooms are large, the wifi strong and the aircon cold. Everything is very clean and the bed gives you a great sleep.

Stayed a few nights here and over all it was good. The name central definitely describes it's location, very central which was convenient while there during Songkhran. Ben, I believe the owner, was very friendly and inviting, helpful with giving info such as suggesting motorbike rental companies. Other staff were friendly too. The restaurant had decent food, though to be... More

Dear Mark N, I'm not sure where to begin with your review. You are saying overall you had a pleasant stay at the GUESTHOUSE but you gave us only 3 stars because you didn't like our RESTAURANT?

We checked in for Songkran and had a water gun, waterproof bag, and a hat on the bed as well as the regular toilet paper and towel set-up, which was great! There was an issue with our AC when we checked in, but by the time we were back from the Thai Boxing match next door, it was all resolved!... More

I spent 4 nights during Songkran festival. the place is right in the middle of action. Great fun. The 2 owners Ben and Ugo are incredibly helpful and both very nice guys. They have a little restaurant downstairs and the food is very good. I highly recommend it.
