Air Conditioner time limit”
I traveled to Chiang Mai in April, which is the hottest month of the year. Everything was good, except for the air conditioner time limit. I could understand for the hostel owner about the electronic bill but I would rather pay more to stay in a cool room. I wasn't able to come to the room to take a nap because the room was super hot from 11 am to 4 pm. I had to go around and take a nap at a shopping mall or a coffee shop =.=" It was so crazy. So, I hope the hostel owner can improve this AC rule. To save money, he could turn the AC off at night from 7 pm to 9 am instead of from 11 am to 4 pm because this time is super hot and some guests want to take a nap at that time instead of going outside.
We feel so sorry for hear that but we already informed you can use and stay in downstair cafe because we turn on AC for guest feel hot from weather. However we feel so happy that you found your money forgot in your shirt. Thank you for your review so much. We will improved and solved this problem immediately.

Nice place to stay”

Very nice hostel for light traveller”
Location very good, near tourist area, easy to find, rather quiet environment. 7-11 nearby. Small place, rather old building, not very orderly nor sparkling clean, but has kinda homy feeling. Downstairs cafe&bar, upstairs the dorms and private room. Shared bathrooms. Spent very comfortable 3 nights in female dorm. Not much space, yet ideal for backpacker and light traveller. Good wifi, ac room during night, convenient sockets near each bed, hot shower, laundry by request (extra charge), excellent bicycle rent for free, motorcycle rent not free. Host was very warm, sincerely attentive to guests' needs and very helpful. Regret being too busy getting around so never had chance to try their menu. Love the creaking wood stairs and floor, the comfy mismatched home slippers, the funny bathroom lock. Thank you JAO, it has been very pleasant stay in Chiang Mai!
Thank you for your review Martina. Your review is very very useful. We hope to see you again.

Great budget hostel”
It has very good location and you can visit the nearby famous temples like Phra Singh,Wad Chedi Luang temple, in just 6-10 min motorbike ride, i managed to ride all the way to Sankampaeng hot spring which is about 35km away where all the local Thais like to hang around for picnic, this hostel is also located near to the Ping river where u can try your luck fishing which is about 1 minute ride away, they also serve very delicious American breakfast and iced latte which i ordered everyday during my stay there.... highly recommended!!!
We really enjoyed our stay at JAO hostel. Lovely, friendly, and very helpful people that run it. We were in the private room, so we can't speak to the dorm rooms. Would highly recommend it!
My Thai Family ”
Very kind & friendly family is running this Hostal.. (I stayed 2 days there) I will come back with my friends during April Holidays.
Location is ok. You can borrow a bike of hostel to travel around. Only 2 bathrooms. Few guests. Quiet place to stay. Friendly staff.
Cute private room clean and spacious”
Pro: We took the private room and it was very comfortable for the price we paid Con: The noise from the street and the distance to any attraction in Chiang Mai.
Overall is ok. I like the cafe decoration and the atmosphere. I like the staff, they are friendly and helpful. The location is good, walking distance to night market, it's near to 7-eleven which is convenience for us. You may spend some times in Cafe.
This is the first hostel I've stayed in and it was a great experience. We had the one bedroom with private bath. It was a less than a mile to walk to the Night Bazaar and all the local food and markets. It was clean, staff were super helpful, especially the young kid who checked us in (brother of the share holder) and let us use the phone to call local numbers. They even provided free bottled water in your room and towels too. Great experience!
Satisfactory for one night”
The Jao Hostel has a lovely cafe downstairs that is very expensive, so I didn't eat there. The bathroom for the hostel is the same one that the cafe patrons use and is down some steep stairs from the one dorm room available. The air conditioning saved the day however there was no provision of water or simple breakfast like many other hostels offer. For the price it was ok.
worth for the money”
the room is nice~
