Libra Guest House
Ranked #29 of 776 Chiang Mai B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 19, 2011

We stayed 4 nights in Libra and didn't have any problems.
The hostel is a 2 minute walk to the main Chiang Mai area and only a 10 minute walk from the walking market streets and a 2minute tuktuk to the night bazaar.
The lady at the front desk/owner was amazingly helpful and full of useful tips. She even discouraged me from doing one of the trips she earned commission on because she didn't feel like I'd get much out of it and pointed us towards great dining options.
The laundry service was also first rate and all the trips we booked, like Flight of the Gibbon, were all excellently done.
Highly recommended!

My husband and I at 63 and 52 are older than the average guest at the Libra, but we felt really welcome and comfortable here. The guest house is perfectly situated inside the old city moat, in a quiet part of the city, but walking distance from many attractions. The room was perfect, clean and bright, with lovely teak floors, The troptical garden with hammocks and shrines was an oasis and very atmospheric, especially after rain. There is a laundry right at the guest house that is very reasonable. Dao runs an efficient operation, helping guests to plan things to do, making bookings for cooking school, restaurants, etc. I had had my appendix out three weeks earlier but still wanted to do a trek - when we emailed before arriving Dao said don't worry let's sit down and talk about it when you get here. Then on the spot, after assessing that I was fit and could walk a long distance as long as I did not carry a pack (my husband carried for me) she arranged an absolutely wonderful two day trek with a brilliant trek leader, We hiked through jungle, stayed overnight in a hill tribe village (and the Libra guest house did not charge us for that night even though we left all our stuff in our room), then the next day continued on elephants and then on bamboo raft down the river. When we got back on a high from this trip Dao was waiting to find out how things went. She always made time to chat, in between seeing to guests and getting her two children off to school. Chiang Mai was the highlight of our trip, not least because of the home from home that we came back to each day after enjoying the amazing sights and things to do. We would love to return some day.

This is a family run guest house. I found them to be welcoming from helping me with passport issue to trek/tours. I was most impressed with their trek about 1/3 cost of others and not at all the usual tourist/ type trap. Convientant to walk tot many of the sites and lots of restaurants in the area. Breakfast is also good at Libra.
Room is basic, but they have a nice courtyard and it is very affordable.

we arrived early morning after the sleeper train from delhi. The Libra Guesthouse is centrally situated, very clean and has well informed, English speaking staff. You can leave all your valuables in your room when you go out as you can lock your room door with your own padlock bedrooms, dining/general purpose areas are constantly cleaned by smiling staff . The guest house is efficiently run, kept clean and is truly value for money. Overall I would whole heartedly recommend both the libra guesthouse.

Having read some of the reviews on this place with aggressive tour pushing etc, we were a little apprehensive booking however we needn't have been. We phoned ahead, were collected for free at the station and then shown an enormous room, awesome bed, air con, wifi, sat tv, great location for 450 baht a night. We found the staff to be so friendly and actually ended up leaving a big tip. They told us the cheapest local bus routes and tuk tuks and sold us very little. The food was cheap and cheerful as well.

Room Tip: phone - the website is misleading

We arrived very late and the taxi driver had to keep stopping to ask locals if they knew where Libra house was! Our room had three beds in and that was about it -all very hard but clean. Bathroom was very poor - we used wet wipes to clean ourselves. Fresh coffee at breakfast was good and one lady was friendly and smiled but all others were stony faced. The sign saying that 'strangers and prostitutes were not allowed in the house' did not fill us with confidence. Had we arrived earlier in the day we would have found somewhere else to stay.

the service you will experience here is not like anywhere else its a family run business that makes you feel like part of the family you need something you get it, i didnt have to worry about where i was going or what i was doing cause they helped plan everything from jungle treks to where the best places to eat and shop where

you have a variety of rooms for those traveling with or without a budget.
very clean and has a great little garden to hang out and relax in

the located is perfect right inside old chiang mai very easy to get around and to find

there was nothing i didn't like about libra guest house
