Super clean, modern hostel”
This place is the cleanest place I've stayed in Asia. Immaculately clean. Hostel dorms are incredible with pod style built into the wall and true blackout curtains. Each bed complete with reading light and outlets. The vibe is definitely less social than most. There is no common area to encourage socializing besides the cafe downstairs which is open to the public and not cheap, you do get a discount for staying at the hostel. I didn't find the staff to be particularly warm or friendly, but not unhelpful. Water refill upstairs is nice, but I do believe there was a deposit for towel and key. Definitely would stay again. Caters more to a digital nomad type of traveler rather than party backpackers
Thank you for great review. We would love to see again.
Best hostel in Chiang Mai so far!!”
The hostel was very cleanliness and comfortable. Free Wi-Fi in room was very fast different from other hostel I have ever stayed. The bed was very soft and has the curtain for your privacy. The location was really good. It was located in the center of Nimman where you can find many good restaurant and cafe nearby. Really recommended!!
Thank you for staying with us. We d love to welcome you back next time.
Great Location and Value of money”
Pros: Great Location, Value of money, Amenities (shower soap, shampoo, hair dryer, cotton, cotton bud, tissue paper), Great Breakfast, Helpful staff, Free water, and can borrow towel, the facility is clean and tidy, all equipment is very functional, free wifi Cons: Curtain might block Air Con., the rest room locates outside and require access card for in&out, no slipper, no key for locker, the rest room is a bit small especially toilet room might not be convenient for a big person
Dear Picharn, Thank you for your review. We do have no lock + key for your locker. If you borrow a towel, you will see on the paper.
Excellent location, quite and clean”
I really enjoyed my stay here mostly because it was perfect for what I wanted; somewhere close to all the cool coffee shops Chiang Mai has to offer, with decent internet so I could get some work done and not a party hostel. Alexa is exactly that, there's peace and quiet and solitary respect, stay if that's what your after perhaps not if you want a social. Alexa is very clean and modern and the free chilled water is a bonus too, great for keeping hydrated and cutting back on plastic. I'd stay here again for sure.
Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciated and hope to see you back next time.
Modern Organized Hostel”
Really enjoyed my stay here. Staff spoke great English and place was really clean! Had an issue with roommates not locking he door and staff acted on it quickly and efficiently. Got to finish season 8 of Suits in the café. Breakfast was great everyday! Only complaint the toilet stall doors practically close on your legs, should be redesigned. Had an awesome stay! Thank you!
Thank you very much patrica. We got the feedback and will fix it soon.
Modern/ultra clean/nice location in Nimman but I checked out after 2 nights. Let me tell you why.”
But anything, I want to give credit to Alexa Hostel first - indeed it's a very clean+nice hostel in the trendy area of Nimman and I actually booked 7 nights initially (single bunk bed in a room of 8 pax). But here's the reality check i.e. the room is barely cooling - think aircon is working overtime everyday and it's pretty stuffy even though we have like 5 pax in the room. They should have 2 aircon units in a shared room. You will be staying with strangers and you better pray that your bunk mates are considerate because we had one old fellow who's coughing loudly and packing his stuffs for hours - you can never rest properly. The Nimman Social bar at the lobby will be playing music until 11pm+ so you will be listening even if you didn't want to (I'm staying at 3rd level). Not to mention, planes are flying above you until 12mn. Personally I can't stand it after 2 nights and had to move to a private hotel.
Thank you for your staying and thank you for your feedback about AC and music time. But, as you know you that you booked for dormitory room and you knew that it will be like that. We also can not control some guests who coughing, packing stuffs even plans. If you stay everywhere in this zone, for sure you will hear planes. Anyway, our staffs tried to service you best for changing new room but you still confirmed us to leave the hostel in next morning.
Nice building but noisy”
I stayed here two nights and changed to another hostel mainly because I thought the noise from the traffic was horrible. With singlepane windows you could hear the traffic really well in your bed. It was also a problem in the common area were you didn't only get the loud noise but also the exhaustgas. The bed was nice and soft. I lacked a shelf by the bed were to put stuff instead of in the bed. The breakfast had real bread and not simply toast which was a nice change from other hostels. So was the free coffee, tea and water. I liked the ability to refill your bottle but it felt wasteful to offer unlimited amount of water bottles if you have a green agenda as stated on the wall. Some of my roommates had 6 bottles by their bed. Without the traffic I would probably have stayed longer at the hostel.
Thank you Paulina for your feedback. We would love to see you again next time.
Modern chill vibe in heart of Nimman. Enjoyed my stay. ”
Got into Chiangmai early in the morning. Check-in wasn’t until 2pm. The receptionist was very friendly & accommodating. She locked my bags up & suggested local places to eat until room was ready. After lunch I came back to Alexa & they made sure to get me checked in as soon as room was available. I was very pleased by the attention to service. I was tired from traveling & they made me feel welcome. The rooms are modern, cozy & always kept immaculately clean. Also loved the beds w/ the LED lights, shelving for electronics & blackout curtains. I was supposed to stay 3 days but ended up staying for almost 2 weeks. Last but not least, I loved the free breakfast that they changed up everyday & was a great way to start your morning. I very much enjoy my stay at the Alexa & would definitely come again my next time in CM.
Dear Kelvin Wow!! Thank you for review,great to here that from our guest ^_^ We hope to welcome back you again soon. Alexa Team
Nice, modern hostel ”
I stayed in a female dorm. Pros: - Hotel staff were friendly - Bed was very comfortable - Each bed had a privacy curtain, lights, place to hang clothes, and two outlets with built-in universal adapters - Each person got a large in-room storage locker - Nice live music on Thursday and Friday nights - One free drink from 6-7pm - Cafe / common area is nice Cons: - Not allowed to wear shoes in rooms. Would be nice to know this ahead of time because I would have brought slippers. - Bathroom was a bit dirty and toilet stalls were small - Toilet paper was often used up
Thank you for staying with us. We also thank you for your feedback! We will improve next time and hope to see you back.
My favourite hostel ”
Absolutely loved it In here as soon as I got out of the taxi. Looks and feels really modern and clean. Great vibes and atmosphere, staff are so friendly and welcoming and great your by your name. We even had a night out with some of the staff. The food is top quality and the communial area is great if you want to do some work and just chill for drinks. A lot of other nomads working. Love music on at weekends. I would come back here in a heart beat. The rooms are spotless and clean, bed comfy, washing facilities are great too! The area around here Nimman, is super cool and trendy, I didn’t even think I was in Thailand, it felt like a cool neighbourhood in a European city or a suburb of NYC or something. Not a bad word to say about this place. Defo worth the money.
Dear Gary Thank you for staying with us here. We love to hear and read this review from you. We are looking forward to welcoming you back here again.
Location is close to many nice coffee shops and shopping malls. It takes about 15 min to walk to the old city! Breakfast provided is pretty nice and they change some little things everyday. Ground floor is a restaurant and they do serve good food. Staff was very friendly and speaks english pretty well. The only thing i was surprised was that when we asked the reception to help us make a call to see if a local restaurant was open, they said we needed to pay a small fee for that. I'm just surprised because usually most other hostels/hotels would do it for free. But overall, it's a good hostel!
Thank you Ting-En for staying at ALEXA. We hope to see you back here again.
Crew makes the difference”
Alexa is such a place that actually is better in reality than the photos and advertisement tell you beforehand. Besides the smooth operations , it is the crew that makes the difference and makes u feel at home. No surprise it is a joy to hang out here. I will be back :)! Thank you all !
Dear Bram Thank you for staying with us. We are looking forward to see you again :)
Worth every penny spends”
high speed wifi bunker is soft and hard enough to sleep cool aircon and separate toilet Alot of cam eyes on you it is safe - forget about dadada things in toilet or you want to be a Kim Cadashian episode 2 go ahead buddy but police will come up right away LOL
Thank you for your recommendation! We are looking forward to welcome you back to ALEXA AGAIN
worth your money!”
- Staffs were helpful - Location was great! - With this price, they provided breakfast but simple one - Wifi was kinda weak tho in my room... :( - I got the bunk under the A/C, made me woke up in the middle of the night, a bit hot. - You can rent a motorbike from hostel - It's nice that they also provided cotton pads in bathroom
Thank you for staying with us! Next time if you need any help, please let our staffs know about it.
Clean, chill spot”
Staff was very helpful with questions and getting some documents printed. The evening live music is pretty chill and a nice way to relax after a day of sightseeing, or working. Seemed like a big spot for digital nomads as well as backpackers. There’s a lift for people who might need help getting their luggage upstairs, and the bar/breakfast area was great. Plentiful wifi, tourist info/options, and a close walk to Night Markets, Maya, some upscale shopping/dining, and not too far from the University. Nothing I would change about my stay - just keep in mind you’re a bit far from the old city here - simple to grab the city bus, or any local transport. Would definitely stay again!
Dear Melanie Thank you for your stay with us,we are very appreciate for your review hope to see you next time .
Very Very Nice☺️”
I came back to the hotel once again after a very good memory. I am very pleased with this hotel. Location is good, clean and has all the conveniences The first floor cafe is cheap and delicious.
Thank you very much Young for coming back again. We hope to see you again next time.
Perfect location, one minute to One Nimman and hundreds of eateries within a walking distance.”
The mixed dorm is clean, most guests keep quiet and respect others. Somehow the upper bunk bed number G locates right near the airconditioner and is too warm to sleep at night. Staffs are nice. Breakfast is basic. Good for solo travellers and those who only need a place to sleep after a day out.
Dear Suwit Thank you your feedback! We hope to welcome you again next time.
Perfect place to stay ”
if you want to travel in downtown, this hostel is located closes to many shopping malls and good Cafe's, including itself has the cafe and live music in someday. Everything is clean. Staying here feels like the same as in hostel in Europe but with better service.
Dear Manisa, Thank you do much for this excellent review. We are happy you liked our excellent service. We all work hard to provide the best possible service to all our guests. Hope to see you soon again :-)
Best hostel I've ever been to”
I really loved this place. I hadn't been in a hostel in 10 years because I really disliked them after a few terrible experiences. Decided to give this one a try given their super high reviews and I was not disappointed. This place offered enough privacy with their capsule style beds, it was very clean, and overall comfortable. I really liked their cafe to work, their stuff was top notch, and having unlimited water and breakfast + a very convenient location was just icing on the cake. The only complaint that I could have was that the toilet stalls were so small! I mean, that was very uncomfortable...but again, super clean and the showers were very enjoyable. So overall I still give it 10/10, and deserving of this much writing :)
Dear Sazzu, Thank you so much for this excellent review! We are happy to read that we could change you mind again about staying at a hostel. We want to be the best hostel in Chiang Mai. We will pass on your compliments to our staff. Currently we are looking into to see if there is a way to extend our toilets. Glad you liked our free water, breakfast, clean beds and showers! Hopefully we may welcome you soon again. Team ALEXA
Amazing hostel ”
Dorms are so comfy! Many facilities, staff is amazing and they even made me a (really good) breakfast bag because I had to checkout early! Would definitely recommend! Sad I did not get to stay longer!
