Great price, great location, good stay

This place is a great location right near Chiang Mai Gate and the saturday market. The price was awesome & the staff was quite friendly
The stay was good. I didn't love it, I didn't hate it. When checking in they couldn't find my reservation but fixed it instantly, super awesome & helpful! It has old cafeteria looking floors & grungy walls... But who cares?!? The bed was quite comfy & the fan was alright. I feel you can pay the same price for an airconditioned room so I perfer that. You can lock valuables under the bed, but the main door doesn't lock from the outside. It was always open when everyone was away which was odd. The bathroom was good but sometimes the shower would backup... Still not a big deal! Overall I had a great stay!

Totally not worth the price

I didn`t experience anything good there.
One of the worst hostels on my travels. Not very clean, no fresh air in the room, old beds... I felt really strange there. So I left one day earlier and changed to another hostel which was much cheaper, cleaner and at better place. The staff in CM Backpack House haven`t even asked me why I was leaving.

Excellent Staff!!!

the very friendly and helpful staff, clean facilities, location close to many things
I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff make this place very enjoyable. I was sick for a part of my time there and they went out of their way to accommodate me. The location was great - two minute walk to a food stalls at night and ten minute walk into center of the big square with many shops. The facilities were basic, but very clean and tidy. I don't think you can get a better hostel for the cheap price. I definitely recommend!

Loved this place!

The owners, the scooters, & the location
My stay at Chiangmai backpack house was great! The owners are so kind and helpful. I really enjoyed meeting them. They also rented a motor scooter to me for very cheap, and taught me how to ride it confidently. The location is perfect in old city for walking and right near the markets.
