The location is a bit far from town, but if renting a motorbike, it shouldn't be. Problem. Peter the host is very friendly.

Peter was a welcoming and gracious host and helped us book a wonderful tour to an elephant sanctuary. Also, he called a taxi for our departure, and was very helpful suggesting places to eat and what to do, along with assisting in calling/translating for an issue unrelated to the hostel. Had a problem with the toilet and no hot water for our shower (maybe operator error). Nice, quiet place except roosters and barking dogs.

The facility needs to upgrade to keep abreast with HI standard. This place is run by a cashier, not a manager who's often away. Despite all the smiles. Very minimalistic and tatty. We need no TV but a clean place and a more space to socialise.

Die Toilette sah aus, als hätte sie zuvor jemand mit Durchfall genutzt, die Toilettenbrille voll gelbem Urin, das Waschbecken und die Ablage voller Zahnpastaspuren...einfach ecklig! Um es dort überhaupt auszuhalten mussten wir das Bad zuerst selbst putzen. Die Gemeinschaftstoiletten neben dem Aufenthaltsraum waren ebenso schmutzig, als hätte sie noch nie jemad geputzt. Es wäre schön, als Gast bei Einzug ein sauberes Bad anzutreffen! Auch in der Nebensaison, wenn noch nicht viele Besucher kommen!

Quiet place to stay in Chiang Mai. Room was basic but clean. Location wasn't the best - nothing much close by and a long walk to the old town.
