Great place to stay visiting Chiangmai! Staff are so helpful, with great local advice on places to go, how to get there, and of course places to eat! Also made booking any trips or activities so easy. Would highly recommend to anyone travelling through Chiangmai!

If you don't mind a non-AC room and a hostel type room then this is a great stay.

The staff was extremely helpful in helping us get around the city. They mapped out everything for us and told us exactly where to go and where not to go.

I cannot say enough good things about this hostel. It’s quirky decor and homely feel are just delightful. Location is pretty good too - just outside the old city. But by far the best thing about this hostel is the staff. One lady in particular (unfortunately I can’t remember her name!) was wonderful. She spoke fantastic English and gave us several maps, explaining each in great detail. She gave us tips on where to go, how to plan our days and where to eat (Woo restaurant - amazing!). So friendly and we really felt she went above and beyond to help. For example, we had booked to stay overnight in the Elephant Nature Park and we were allowed to leave our bags there overnight to save us taking them with us. We have stayed in many other places in Asia and this was by far the best - we were actually sad to leave! Chiang Mai is such a beautiful place and we would love to return. Should we do so, we will be staying in Banilah! Thanks so much!

Pro

Good value
Excellent greeting and briefing on local restaurants, resources, geography etc
Capable, helpful and enthusiastic staff
Quite clean
Good local resources, excellent breakfast place, hairdresser, laundry, seven eleven within steps
Free bikes, very useful (though you get what you pay for in terms of quality)
Cats, lots of cats

Con

A little far from old city, about a km to the wall a bit of a hike though ok on bike
Beds were very hard, springs were visible and palpable, they need to invest in new mattresses
Our room was at back in ground floor, no natural light. Not quite what you see in the pics.

Staff are amazing, we arrived before check in time & was sat down with a refreshing herbal tea. The "Boss Lady" explained everything we can do with a very detailed map (great as it was our first time in chiang mai)

She helped us organise a scooter to rent and made us feel at ease handing over our passport to the scooter company. (They were also fantastic-we extended our scooter rental and all we had to do is let the ladies down stairs aware who did all the phone calls for us)

People have moaned about the location- ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!! - This hostel is next to many 7/11's... The local food market is a 2 minute walk where you can have lunch for 40bht! - great local food.

The Local Thai Boxing is only 5 minutes away (was amazing only 600bht each) with amazing all you can Eat BBQ restaurants (cook it yourself) located next door. They also have a lady boy show (we didn't visit) but looked like a clean safe venue.

The old city is a 5 minute bike ride (FREE PUSHBIKES) so everyone who said its not local to anything are most likely lazy tourists.

Rooms are cleaned daily to a good standard, always fresh towels and toiletries.

We had a AIR CON Room - the people who moaned about it being to hot....well that is what happens when you travel to a country with 30 degrees heat and you only book a fan room.

Tv in rooms are good, a few English channels with films on. WIFI is also very good, we streamed a lot of movies on our iPad. This hostel has 5 wifi connections so never slow download speeds.

The beds are okay, could be a bit softer but much better than other hostels we stayed in. That is the only thing I could moan about but I would 100% return to this hostel next time we come here.

Yes toilets are located outside on your balcony but they are very clean and to a good standard (bugs are natural, this is Thailand so you may bump into some) we DIDNT have any in ours. Showers are nice and hot and for me it was nice to have a balcony as I am a smoker.

Thanks Ladies, you run a great hostels!

Room tip: Pick a A/C Room, speak to staff they will help with everything you need.
