My boyfriend and I initially booked this homestay for two weeks to volunteer with the Education Project. We had little to no responses from the company and when we showed up we were taken for free from the river house to the hill house. After the 45 min journey with beautiful views we were asked by the driver if we... More

This place is a great place but after paying for a "VIP" room with air-con and a table and chairs we weren't really happy with the bamboo hut and fan which we ended up with. Agoda wouldnt offer us any refund either. The staff seem nice if a little over relaxed. Overall we enjoyed our stay but it was tinted... More

This place is quality if you are after a real experience in the jungle. It's situated right in the jungle with nothing but small tribal villages around. There is a great trek through the jungle and the national park but i would recommend getting a guide to take you because you wouldn't want to get lost in the jungle without... More

This is a lovely homestay! Very scenic 4x4 transfer from Chiang Rai town (put on for free by Akha Hill House) among steep windy roads! Accomodation is basic but clean and with incredible views! The whole place has a very peaceful and relaxing vibe. Really easy to go exploring and walking around the local sites for free (Waterfall is within... More

the setting of the village is really nice and we especially appreciated the free and scenic transport from akha river house, chiang rai to the village. There is really nice hiking around the village with lots of things to discover. The accomodation is basic but clean. The owner and his family are very nice, welcoming and helpful. Try the pancake!...

We specifically chose to travel to chiang rai to stay at the Akha Hill house to learn more about the cultures and traditions of the tribal people, but the hotel was severely understaffed and rudely refused to engage in conversation. They even went to the extent to complaining to us about how "talkative" the other guest were. Food was limited... More

We intended to stay two nights, but returned after the first night. They have a very inconvenient free transportation, where they depart in evening and return in the morning. So if you really want to see something you have to stay two nights. But we slept so bad (bad mattress, noise of water running in toilet, big spider in room),... More

Was intending on staying two nights only stayed one. Beautiful, peaceful, waterfall running, birds, crickets chirping. Spiders. Basic accommodation and food. The experience is uniquely village life. Don't expect anything from accomm. In fact is actually overpriced for what it is. But place is incredible. Not for tourists!! But for travellers.
