There's not much more that needs to be said about SpicyThai, Noom and co have hostel perfection to a tee. I intended on staying there for a couple of days and ended up spending almost a week! Its a great place to meet other travellers in fact I travelled with many people I met at Spicythai for around a month. The only bad thing about the place is eventually you have to leave which is kinda difficult as it's so homely with its sofas and their huge collection of DVDs - great if you feel like a night in. Noom and the staff were brilliant and go out of their way to help you. There is a fully stocked fridge with an honesty policy which I like as it shows they trust their guests and you don't feel like you are being squeezed for every last baht in your wallet (like some places I found in Thailand). Just make sure you book your onward travel before you stay here otherwise you may never leave!!!

- In 2006, we created our Spicy Hostel that has since hosted thousands of very happy travelers... Do not miss your opportunity to experience the spiciness in Chiang Mai.Beginning in September 2006, we have shown this country what a real backpackers hostel is and how to run a great hostel. Rated No.2 in Asia 2007 and No.1 in Thailand 2008, Spicythai has really brought the backpackers hostel to life in Thailand. A group of young locals with lots of travel experiences and warm hearts have created each Spicy and have brought them to the top of the game in a very short time. Six years of success prove very well that we have been doing the right thing.Now Spicythai is in its new location: an even bigger and more beautiful house in a more convenient location, close to the Old City.Special Features at Spicythai;Apart from normal stuff that you will get at budget hostels such as free toiletries, a book swap, reference books, bed linens, parking, city maps, tour information, etc, we offer more including:- Strong and firm handmade bunk beds (no funny noises to annoy you while sleep)- AC in all dorms (we live in the city so AC is a good investment for climate and pollution)- Free coffee and tea with toast, butter and jams- Kitchen with free spices and oil- Original honesty system mini-bar with 24/7 easy access- Big-screen TV & home theater system with cable TV and an incredible collection of movies and TV series- Communal computers with high speed internet until midnight and 24/7 free WiFi- Free use of storage closet ... more less
