“Good Stuff”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

I stayed here for 3 nights and found it to be really nice. Super friendly people and Boyce (not sure how to spell this?) is an absolute gem. He was super helpful if you're looking for help planning how to spend a day and he's just the nicest guy.

The rooms were clean but very basic but you get what you pay for. The bathrooms were also pretty decent, nothing special but they work and the showers always had hot water which is more than I can say for any place I stay at during my time in Thailand.

The food here was good and very reasonably priced and I thought the coffee was great.

Tons of mosquitoes out at night so I'd recommend bug spray.

I'd definitely recommend staying here if you're on a budget. I enjoyed my time at Aoi Garden Home.

Room Tip: If you can avoid a room next to or above the bathroom that's probably a good call. Unless liste...

We were given a padlock for our room and on serval occasions went back to our room to find things had been moved and fans left on which we definitely turned off. Posibly 1000 baht missing but cant say for sure as we didnt count money before leaving for the day. Very cold welcoming after a 14 hour sleeper train was not great. The room was clean but they never changed the towels
Got woken up every morning to one of the guys who worked there fleming and spitting, he'd regularly do it in the evening too, lovely before you go out for your evening meal.

We stayed at Aoi Garden for 4 nights and really enjoyed it. For around £2 a night I couldn't have asked for more. The place itself was really pretty with a nice garden and little fairy lights everywhere. The rooms were basic but good, we were in a 5 bed mixed dorm and each had a locker, and the room had 3 fans.
Aoi is really helpful and knowledgeable when it comes to booking treks and other experiences, and really welcoming.
Overall I'd really recommend it if you're travelling on a budget- but wear lots of mozzie spray if you sit outside!

I have no idea why this hostel is rated so highly. The staff were friendly but it's Thailand - everyone is friendly. The room I stayed at was awful. There were holes in the walls which led to A TON of mosquitos in the room. You could also hear EVERYTHING - good luck if you're a light sleeper. Also, there were not beds in the double room...just mattresses on the floor. The bathroom was mediocore. Thankfully there was hot water. The food/drinks at the restaurant were good. I would recommend spending a little bit more for a much nicer room elsewhere in town!

I would say that this hostel is good just because of the price. The position is not so good, when we arrived the staff wasn't helpful. The room was too hot, even with the fan on. No air conditioner, lot of mosquitos in the room Because there were spaces in the wall. The staff was a bit better in the days after and the banana pancakes were really good (extra money, not included in the price).

Toilet (shared) and room not clean at all! And you can't use your shoes in the toilet... DISGUSTING! If you don't want people to use shoes it's fine, it's your rule... But please clean the facilities!

I would say to everyone: spend a bit more But go somewhere else...

Me and my gf stayed here during a trip around Asia, and this is my favourite hostel so far, Aoi is constantly going out of her way to go the extra mile for anything and everything to make your trip go smoother. Awesome place

The hostel is really good, and it totally makes you fell like you're at home! Really peaceful, i could hang out there drinking tea the whole day.
The staff is amazing! Really friendly and helpful! I would definitely go there again!
