The place needs some URGENT investments. Our bed was 'fixed' with cardboard, the paint was falling of the ceiling, the curtains were ripped, only one of the electrical plugs was working in our room, the hammocks in the 'garden' are broken,... The rooms were dusty and there were some cigarette buds under the bed... Not much positive to mention about... More

II think just somebody before me described it good, but I look at this more positive. The owner and staff are really friendly, and helpful. The food is superb, but I think the price of the rooms are a bit high for what you get. I am kind of wondering what is the Chiang Mai standard, but it feels a... More

The Pun Pun guesthouse is one of Chiangmai's hidden nuggets for the hungry traveler. The 'Superman' breakfast has simply got to be the best in the city and you won't need lunch or maybe even dinner! All of the food is American styled genuine home cooking and made on the premises. The food is quality and the portions are generous,... More

My family and I went for Xmas dinner. We were very hesitant upon arrival to stay. The restaurant is outside restaurant and is small. No ambiance or atmosphere. Felt like we had dinner in the jungle with my family and the mosquitos. It's backpackers haven as there is guesthouses. Very laid back service. Service was good. Alcohol list limited. No... More

Terrible place, not worth the price. I often stay in budget, older guest houses but the single room 350bhat in the teak house had: worn out sheets, hot water heater with knobs that fall off, broken curtain rods, uncomfortable bed, noise from the street traffic, dim lighting, don't even provide toilet paper or H2O. Complaint about bugs was shrugged off.... More

Real old-school backpacker place in Chiang Mai. Most places are new and boring now but this place is the way I remember SE Asia! Best food around too, hands down! Huge portions made right! I had awesome fish and chips and the wife loved her pork knuckle as well. The owner is amazing too. Nicest guy you'll ever meet!

I loved it. Owner John will set up whatever you need while the Thai staff makes great meals (Thai or western, you must try the tomato or lime juice). Despite no aircon, the rooms were cool and I saw no mosquitos (despite holes in the wall). Houses are wood and rickety but kitsch and don't feel like they are on... More
