I stayed at this hostel for 7 nights. I could not have been happier with my choice. The hostel is located on a quiet street in a residential area. It is only a short walk to a main road with restaurants. The center of Chiang Mai is within walking distance. Gymkhana golf course is close by. The hostel is well maintained and clean. The room was clean and comfortable with ample air conditioning and hot water. The owner/manager, Peter, treats his guests like family. I will stay here again!

Nice quiet hostel...but with few facilities. It is eco friendly with energy saving light bulbs...but the light didn't work in the bathroom. Nice layedback atmosphere...and peaceful...apart from the local canine community who sometimes communicate loudly at ungodly hours!

Limpieza de baños externos. Muy sucios. Sin papel. No es un Hostel. Es una casa con un dueño que lo atiende. Si no esta el. Quedas a la deriva. Es un lugar de paso sin atención.

If you are only using this as a base for day trips or treks then it should be fine. If, however, you will want to go into the night markets or the old city and don't want to spend half your day walking there, and especially if you are a solo female, I would not recommend this. I was fine with the distance when booking, I like a walk, but it's through a fairly dodgy area at night and I didn't feel safe - especially after returning late with no one around and the wrong room key. Too scared and left.

I had a postive experience here and Peter was very helpful with advice both before my arrival via email and while I was there. The room was tidy and came with it's own bathroom. It is located in an area a bit far from town, which for me was great because I like to walk, but for some it may be too far. There were dogs barking occasionally, which I also like, but for some this may pose a problem. Inexpensive and serves it's purpose. I would stay here again as well as recommend it.
