              contender for best hostel in Asia”

              i only stayed one night, but was seriously impressed. incredible place. every detail has been thought out. ive stayed at so many great hostels all over asia but few get as good as this. super clean, great bathrooms and showers. good amount of personal space in the bunk and excellent common space area. lots of space to hang dry clothes. great staff. only negative is the tons of free water in plastic bottles. no reason for this in 2019. everyone travels with their own reusable bottle, and can simply refill it from the provided water machine. aside from that, can't wait to stay here again next time i am in CM.

              Best hostel I've ever stayed at, rooms are nice and clean w/ perfect privacy, lockers, night lamps. Hostel provides free buffet breakfast (it's a little different every day), free water, coffee and tea all day. Staff was super friendly, spoke perfect English and was just overall very professional. I had a great experience here. (Literally the only downside was that the bathroom was one floor below but that was inconvenient mostly because I had an upper bunk so I always had to crawl down lol)

              Great experience ”

              After visiting more than ten similarly priced hostels in chiang Mai, here’s why I chose to extend my stay at Hostel by BED. Hostel by bed is clean, comfortable, and situated in a very convenient location inside the old city. All of the staff are incredible, and go out of their way to make sure that you’re comfortable. The entire place is constantly being cleaned and maintained. The bathrooms are nice, showers are outstanding, and the laundry machines are inexpensive. Management goes out if it’s way to reduce costs for its guests. For example, I accidentally damaged a bed sheet with ink, and was kindly told that I would only be charged the minimum amount if it was determined that the stain could not be removed with a deep wash. A wonderful free breakfast is served daily, and the chef always makes sure that the guests have eaten and are well taken care of. Water, tea, and high quality coffee are all free. Something I noticed about Hostel by BED, is that it has guests who enjoy

              The hostel is really nice. They have friendly staff and the facilities were always clean. I think stay in hostels really depends on your roommates. Manage your expectations. This was not my first hostel experience so I do know what to expect.

              This is my first time in this new hostel and I would say it has been a great experience staying here. The perfect location inside the old city in Chiang Mai and a walking distance to the famous Khao Soi Khun Yai. This hostel is clean, the free internet connection is fast, and the food's good. Like what I said to their staff, I will definitely be staying back here whenever I'm in Chiang Mai. Highly recommended hostel.

              The best of the best in terms of hostels on Chiang Mai. Staff are so upbeat, helpful and friendly. The hostel is social but not a party hostel. There are board games and a lovely outdoor seating area. The breakfast was fantastic, the bathrooms and dorms were clean, and it was wonderfully quiet at night, we slept great!

              1. Bed is large, comfy and thick enough, 2. Water output is strong and refreshing, hot water consistently for 10 mins, 3. Coffee served in beans, with a grinder machine, 4. Breakfast nice enough to start a.new day. The overall experience is truly awesome, helpful and friendly reception. Sometimes, you dont need a fancy designed, well conceptual, attention to detail is the key of winning. Keep everything simple and minimal. I consider myself a fussy person, but this hostel just awesome, its can achieve more. 10 more days extended. I travel many places, good work the owner.

              Stayed here for a quick one night stop over before catching the over night train to Bangkok. We shared a queen pod in a mixed dorm. The bed was comfortable and very spacious with a curtain for privacy. The hostel communal areas and bathroom were very clean and they had free water/breakfast. The location was a bit out of the way but not an issue for a quick stop over. I would recommend :)

              Awesome staff”

              Worth it for a higher end hostel 🙂. The staff are fun and friendly and super helpful when need be. The free breakfast has a good variety but if you wander a bit just outside there's also a variety of street food and restaurants within 5-15 min walk. The washrooms are always clean. Only downside is most ppl kept to themselves even with the activities within the hostel. Otherwise great patio chill place too

              The wood covered ground makes the foot step sounds loudly, especially at the quiet midnight. I was awaken a few times.

              My First Stay in a Hostel”

              I chose the mixed dorm to experience the real life of hostel. Unfortunately, this hostel's mixed dorm comprises of couple and single beds. Hence I was slotted on one of the single beds among the couples. It was a pretty awkward stay as mostly couples are sleeping together in the dorm. The daily breakfast was disappointing as there was no selection thus I eat outside instead. However the bed is super comfy to sleep in!

              Great location & facilities. Room feels like home!”

              Very recommended hostel. However there’s no lift but stairs. & we were on 4th floor. But it’s not really a problem for me since I was using backpack. Only thing I didn’t like was that the toilet is 1 floor below from the 6 female dorm. Overall I will recommend this hostel because of the facilities, free unlimited water bottles, breakfast & car parks for those that rents a car. Friendly receptionist & clean hostel 👍🏻👍🏻
