About Chiang Mai International Youth Hostel

Set between the lovely Mae Ping River and the sacred Doi Suthep mountain, lies the Chiang Mai International Youth Hostel in a quiet neighborhood along the busy Chang Klan Road (famed for its night bazaar). Chiang Mai International Youth Hostel is the original member of the Thai Youth Hostels Association & International Youth Hostel Federation (IYHF) in Chiang Mai. Many changes have taken place as we’ve grown with the development of the city. Many of our valued guests who stayed with us as backpacking students have kept returning to stay with us. Their comments and feedback have been invaluable to us in setting a new era in Thai hostelling at the Chiang Mai International Youth Hostel today.
At the new Chiang Mai International Youth Hostel (opening 01st Dec, 2005), we understand the demands of the new generation travelers who seek for clean, comfortable and safe environment without compromising on expensive room rates. With a warm country design in a garden atmosphere, you will find that our room rates are not only of great value but most important of all, you continue to enjoy our warm northern Thai hospitality. The moment you step in can make your stay a most rewarding one.
At Chiang Mai International Youth Hostel, we pride ourselves to be highly service oriented. How? Because we keep a small and manageable number of rooms (just 9), we are able to pay attention to the little details in making your stay as comfortable as possible. All our rooms come with modern en-suite facilities and are fully air–conditioned. Our beds are purpose-built with an Asian design with private hot/cold showers and western style toilet, satellite , cable TV (local Thai channels, English movies, CNN, BBC, MTV, NHK, TV5 in French, German, Chinese and National Geographic) and Internet connection. We also run a full-fledged travel desk with attractively priced tour and trek packages. At Chiang Mai International Youth Hostel, we are your one stop travel center.
