    maybe its rain season, many mosquitos in the room, could not sleep in the first night and i have to buy electronic appellant in big c to against the damn mosquito, problem solve. Another thing is they use one aircon to share 2 single room, thats instill a aircon through a hole on the wall between two rooms. Really? yes just not cold enough i still need to request a fan extra.

    OK”

    Generally clean hostel except the upstair toilet is a bit smelly - they should remove the standing urinal. Although the staff doesn't speak much english, they are polite and helpful at all time. The premise provide 2 male staffs at night for security although the location is generally safe. The surroundings is a bit quite and peaceful so sleeping tight at night wouldn't be a problem. Locationwise, walking distance to halal food street which is a plus for a muslim like me. It is also walking distance to night market centres, a small mall with Big C Supermarket, Hard Rock Cafe and Arts in Paradise. The hostel also have their own cafe so no free coffee or breakfast provided but you can have a cup of latte from the cafe for only THB60! No locker provided too but you can leave your valuable at the frontdesk.

    Satisfied!”

    If you are looking for a quiet and modern place this place is the Raw Hostel. The staff are friendly, the language is an obstacle that we can all overcome, so it's worth taking the time to talk to them so you can repeat or use your online dictionary. I'm Brazilian and in Brazil we always have good coffee, I loved drinking their coffee too. Perhaps a weak point is the lock of the door and the cleaning of the bathrooms, but of course this can improve progressively.

    Good location, strict with 2PM check-in time”

    They were strict on the check-in time, fyi the check-in time was at 2PM. We didn't know this before so we were surprised when we arrived. We had a long flight and was very tired only to find out we couldn't get in to our room even though it was occupied when we asked or maybe there was a miscommunication? Before travelling, I communicated with Agoda to confirm with the owner and make sure we have room because the payment status is "Pay at the hotel" and this is our first "out of the country" travel so I had to make sure everything is in order. Was very sad that they didn't consider and just tell us to wait 'till check-in time. We don't want to waste our time sitting so we decided to just go outside (even though we are jetlagged and tired!) and do temple searching and left our things. It was hard to communicate because of the language barrier but they are good people. The location is the bonus because it's near the Art in Paradise 3D Museum (which we enjoyed so much!), near 7/11, massage and spa, restos, scooter rental and it's clean and safe. Aircon was real cold (a plus because it's really hot during the day). They have cafe/lobby, wifi is working good. The NO-NO for me would be the bathroom/toilet room because they only have it on 3rd floor and first floor(lobby). We're at the 2nd floor so at the middle of the night I had to go upstairs just to pee and during our stay, the toilet at the 3rd floor doesn't flush good. I hope they improve on that. Overall, still a good stay, you know you get what you pay for.

    Reviewed November 11, 2017

    We have improved the toilet. We are recruiting staff who speak English well. We told you to wait for 2PM. I have to wait for customers to check out. In the morning we have to clean the room. If we are available. You can check in before 2PM.

    Massage beds instead of mattresses”

    We arrived in the evening to be met by a non-English speaker clerk that tried to unsuccessfully communicate with her translator app, were led to a small room without windows, while the restrooms were on a different floor. The mattresses were very hard and in the morning we found out they were massage beds, with the hole for the head... Get better value for your money somewhere else.

    I spent about 10 days there with pleasure :) + Quiet, not crowded, fit for work if you are a freelancer (maybe because I was at the end of the season :) + Not stuffy, air conditioners always work + A spacious hostel-room with a sofa and curtains at the beds + Kitchen with everything you need + In walking distance to the old town + Pleasant staff - Slightly inconvenient with bathrooms (on the first floor there are 2 bathroom, but hot showers only on the second and third floors)

    this is a very very quiet hostel. the coffee is amazing here. Definitely not a social hostel if that's what your looking for (which I was) but a great place to get some rest or maybe do some work on a laptop. I forgot to hand in my keycard and accidently took it to pai. I messaged the owner who was totally cool about it and let me bring it back whenever I returned to chiang mai!

    The hostel did not a big sign so you have to be on the look out for the Raw Cafe. Location wise, its about 5 minutes walk to the night market. Booked a private room with shared toilet and the toilet in the third floor definitely needs cleaning, found all sorts of body hair everywhere.

    Dorm room better than privates...”

    Wouldn't come here again, but if you do definitely book the dorms. I chose this place because the beds looked comfy in the dorm room photos online and so I got a private room assuming that if the dorm looks that nice the private room would be awesome, right? Wrong. Now I'm going to take a guess and say there used to be a massage business upstairs. Now why would I say that? Because my bed was a massage table. A legitimate 2-inch hard mat with a face hole atop of a table. Oh, and the A.C. unit is split between two rooms... Luckily no one stayed next door to me so I could pop into the other room to adjust the control panel. I will say that the downstairs is nice with a small cafe and nice decor, plus they give you water and a towel. I snuck a peek at the dorms and yes, the beds do look nice and it is clean. Apparently I just pulled (what shouldn't be) a rookie mistake by not booking the dorm room, which is essentially a private since no one is here anyways. I'd advise to stay somewhere nicer and closer to the city. And, you know, with a real bed maybe.

    It's located at the outskirts of the old city but still within walking distance. Pleasant staff. We arrived around 10am but they were generous enough to let us checked-in early. The dorms are excellent,very neat and clean. Oh, and they have a cafe downstairs so a cup of coffee is always within reach. Highly recommended.
