Liked: The owner is friendly, quirky, and very personable. She truly made the stay a wonderful experience. It was clean, great environment to make friends, and great location on a quieter strip but right near the center restaurants and bars. It was a great place to stay my first trip to CM.

Liked: Ari, the manager has a great sense of humor and makes everyone feel welcome. She is friendly and deals with all requests in a helpful and efficient manner; from booking trips and tours, organizing cooking classes, booking bus tickets etc etcThe Living Place has a common area which is a great place to socialize, drink tea (or beer) and get to know the other guests. I would strongly recommend it as a great place to stay.

Disliked: Very little except the mattress was a bit hard!

Liked: Friendly and helpful

Disliked: No reading lights. The floor I was on had one shower/toilet for 10 people.The combined shower/toilet area is dirty and needs maintenance. If you needed to use to the toilet after someone has had a shower, you would have to dry all the toilet, as it is covered in soap lather and dirty shower water, your feet get wet standing in dirty shower water from previous people. No reading/night lights if someone comes in late at night have to turn on main lights waking everyone in dorm. Beds are rickety, really noisy, old and uncomfortable. Unlike other places you have to pay extra for towel. Stayed for week bedding get not changed. No storage in room for luggage, bad news when you're sharing the with people who don't care about others, had to climb over and around other people's stuff to get in and out of room and bed. No proper wall between rooms, could hear all conversations from adjoining rooms.


The property's response is

Thank you for stay with us, if you travel in asia and staying in hostels is not hotel. Bathroom and toilet it be together but we have slippers for bathroom. You stay in dorm room, you must understand that you must share with others. we have free coffee, tea and cookies for 180 baht per night for towel you have to pay. Sorry about the bunk bed make a noise We will improve it .
