Liked: I stayed at Spicythai with my two friends for four nights. As soon as we arrived everyone was so welcoming, inviting us out for the night. The staff here are so helpful, Luke and Steve booked activities and transport for us and were generally very helpful with advice etc. The hostel is very social and there is nearly always things organised for the evenings if you did want to go along. The rooms are basic but clean and safe, having air conditioning was nice too. I would highly recommend this hostel :)

Liked: This hostel was very sociable, they had activities on every night that made it really easy to meet people. Breakfast was included and the bathroom was always clean. Excursions and travel could also be arranged through the hostel. Great air conditioning!

Disliked: Upstairs there is just one toilet; the showers are downstairs so didn't really like to walk through the common area in a towel! Quite difficult to find as its just outside of the old town area of Chiang Mai. Had to pay extra for a towel. Mosquitos in the female dorm,

Liked: Although it is a little bit North of the city it is an easy walk into town or 100 baht tuk-tuk ride. People at the hostel very social and friendly :) Special thank you to Noom for helping me out with my 'foot situation' as well as trying to sort out my phone :)

Disliked: The cleanliness of the upstairs bathroom. However the showers, toilets, and sinks downstairs were always clean.

Liked: It provided free breakfast and was located close to a 7evelen.

Disliked: There was no warm water. The hostel is locatd far away from everything. There are nicer guesthouses for the same price in the downtown area near the tourist attractions, restuarants and pubs. This hostel caters to a younger crowd - teenagers and early 20s. The dorm rooms are on the second floor but the toilets and showers are on the ground floor. In order to get to and from the shower area you have to walk by everyone watching tv and eating.

The property's response is...
