“Place to Stay”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Although not staying there and being influenced by personal connection with the management, I would highly recommend the Diva to everybody for a stay!
Had a look into the rooms which are beautifully decorated and conveniently funished.
Location is suitable, restaurant delicious mix of Thai and western foods, the staff helpful and atmosphere chilled. They offer the regular tour services, and in the weeks/months to come there will be Diva Guesthouse 2 (similar to the present one but more rooms) and Diva 3 (two large dorms) to be opened; excited to discover those as well.
Will plan for my next visit!

The staff at Diva were amazingly friendly and helpful. I booked everything with them (tours,massages,train tickets,tuk-tuks) and all were reliable. The food was great. Cheap and yummy. Our room was downstairs with a fan only (300 baht) and I was worried at the time of booking it, but once we arrived I saw the fan would be more than enough. The room was colourful, unique and definitely clean. I loved Diva so much and I felt so bad knowing I had to leave it. Thankyou so much!

Of all the hostels that I stayed at on my 2 month trip around south-east Asia, this was undoubtedly the best hostel. We were treated like family by the extremely hospitable staff. They booked our tours, buses, massages - nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we took advantage of the food on offer from the continental breakfast in the morning to the tasty thai curries for dinner. There is even a really comfortable communal area to sit, relax, eat and socialise. It had everything a backpacker could want! I will definitely be returning to Diva!

I cannot even begin to explain how kind and friendly the staff are; especially the female owner! She could not do enough for you! Any tours/taxis/spa treatments etc she would organise for you in an instant at really good prices! Amazing! The room was spacious and cosy and the restaurant served awesome food! We even changed our flights so we could stay another night because we loved Chiang Mai and this guesthouse so much! THANK YOU!!!

For the facility and restaurant it is a STEAL. The staff is friendly and helpful. Though one of the staff members blatantly likes european guys as she was incredibly friendly to them the entire time hugging and saying "dont go" and when we left she said "okay im done with you". You can book tours etc cheaper elsewhere as the place your staying always gets a commission off of sales. TRY doing things yourself too instead of tours.... tours destroy the charm of backpacking.

Room Tip: Dorms are fine but the beds cree. for 110THB a night... no complaints.

We don't normally stay in hostels, and tend to choose guesthouses, but the reviews for Diva sounded fantastic...and it lived up to all our expectations! We arrived late but the porter at Julie Guesthouse had our names/a key for us. The girls that work there remembered our names, arranged a great cooking course for us and were always super friendly. The café is great value and tasty too. Only drawback is that it's a little bit noisy, but grab some earplugs and you're good to go.

While the bedroom and bathroom were small and with only a fan to keep us cool, we enjoyed our stay of several nights at this guesthouse as it was in a great location and with friendly, helpful staff. Step outside the door and you're ready to explore all of the old Chiang-Mai city area. Afterwards we lazed in the top veranda, reading and drinking a few Leo beers to recover.
