wartel We really can recommend this place! Everything was more than perfect. As the descriptions of the guesthouse promises, the place is really very silent, the (included) breakfast is really very good (two choices), the english-thai couple is really very nice and extremely helpful, the location is really close to the city, the rooms are really clean and beautiful. Just trust them and our review as well as the reviews of all other reviewers before us and stay longer than you have planned in this wonderful guesthouse of a really great value!

mkeetley This hostel was wonderful. It felt more like I had my own apartment - the rooms were big and decorated nicely, and you really do get a bit of a terrace. They also clean your room daily which was more like hotel service rather than that of a hostel. The location was a short walk away from the pubs and nightlife, but I was happy to avoid the yucky old men with beautiful young thai "ladies" that populate at least one of the streets 5 minutes away. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the whole place had a nice, laid-back feeling. The downstairs lounge was good, but there weren't ever too many people coming or going so I didn't meet any other travellers here. I would definately stay here again if I ever went back to Chiang Mai.

kiwi bean I haven't been to many backpackers, but this place was a great place for newbies. It has a very homely feel with almost everything you would find at home. A communal kitchen, dining room, lounge and front yard with hammocks strung between the trees. The place is located in a safe area, just outside the main city, but still within walking distance to many great cafes and cute boutiques shops. It has a great ambiance with photo collages on the walls, a home theatre system with an array of dvds, 2 computers with internet available and free wi-fi. There's breakfast on the table every morning - corn flakes, muesli, milk, bananas and toast along with tea and coffee which really helps when you're on a tight budget, but also saves time. We stayed in the mixed dorm room which had a/c and also our own bathroom. It's simple living. Pillows and blankets were provided, but towels had to be rented. Lockers are provided. Only downside is that we couldn't lock our room because we stayed in a dorm and others needed access. But in the end, everything was fine and nothing was lost. The manager was incredibly friendly and very passionate about making sure his guests were entertained. He would arrange day trips for people to go to the Lake, white water rafting and also gave rides to the Night Bazaar and organize activities such as ten pin bowling. One night he took us to a nearby Hot Pot Buffet, which was the BIGGEST buffet I've ever been to. Hundreds of locals and foriegners packed under one roofed area with tons of food to choose from and pots fired up by coal sat on our tables for us to cook our food. It's quite the experience. There was also live entertaining performances by comdedians and local artists. We rented motorbikes/scooters (125cc) for 200 BHT a day (approx. $6USD). Really great value and allows great freedom to travel wherever, whenever. Drivers in Thailand too are much better than other SE Asian nations where they actually obey the road rules. I would totally recommend this place if you're down to meet other travellers and want to have the opportunity to travel with others. Safe, cheap and fun - what more could you want?
