Julie's is a great place for backpackers. The main reason to go there is for the social aspect. You walk into the common area to find it constantly packed with travelers. There is a warped Snooker table, along with plenty of lounge space to hang out and chat. They have a very reasonably priced menu, along with a cooler full of beers and drinks to satisfy anyone's palate.
Along with a great atmosphere and pretty good food, Julie is also the queen of booking tours. If you have any questions about booking tours to any of the surrounding provinces, booking bus tickets, going to see a Muay Thai fight, going zip-lining, riding elephants, trekking - even if you are just looking for a nice spot to go eat, talk to the front desk before you go anywhere else. Even if you don't book with them, they will give you great information so you don't get ripped off elsewhere.
The rooms are nice. They are nothing special, but for the price they are great. There is also a cool little garden towards the back of the guesthouse. It's a nice place to chill out or read a book. You can order food there as well.
If you're looking for a social place to hang out while in Chiang Mai, Julie's is a great spot. Be sure to call ahead as they are sold out quite often, especially during high season!
