            Clean, kind and welcoming!”

            I'm so glad I stayed at SOOK Hostel during my time in Chiang Rai. It is centrally located (walking distance to the bus station, restaurants/cafes and temples in the city, and right across the road from the Night Market) but was never too noisy. Bedding, bathrooms and common areas were always clean. And the owners are so kind and helpful - they were happy to provide recommendations around town, even helped me to track down a hard to find sight and with a ride to a nearby cafe. Thank you for having me!

            Location... Cleanliness... Helpful staff! ”

            Located at the center of city it is near to all the major night markets, restaurants, shops, ATMs, etc. Bus station is also very nearby, so you can commute to nearby locations easily. Even though you're located in the main road, the rooms are very quiet. Bathrooms and lavatory are always clean. Heater works well. Provides shower gel and shampoo. The owner conducts sightseeing tours, so you can contact them if you wish to go to some place. Various other tour options are available at the reception. The staff(especially Biwa) was amazing. Biwa was very genuinely helpful. She helped me in charting my own tour the first day itself. She informed me about all the local markets that happened during my stay there. They have a kitchen too where they provide some foods and snacks that the guests can have. They have a refrigerator too where you can keep your personal food items labeled. For the price this place is awesome...!

            Cozy little place with fun people/staff”

            I stayed in the women dormitory for one night here and I’m impressed with the place and people I met with. The bedroom and bathroom were really clean. The staff was really friendly and helpful. I felt like home even though I stayed for only one night! There’s also a small secret rooftop bar at this place but too bad it closed that day but still I could go there and chill. Met lots of people who stay here, one of my unforgettable fun nights in Chiang Rai so far! <3
