      Near the Park was a great place to stay. The staff was super friendly and helpful with making sure I was able to do the things I wanted to do during my time in Chiang Mai. The bathrooms were not very clean and I am not sure that my sheets had been cleaned either, but other than that the hostel was a great place to stay. It was in a great location in the old city as well.

      it's a mattressbox with a locker, free white bread breakfast, warm showers, aircon and fanned rooms... what else.. it's basic but exactly what i require, when i just want a place to rest me and my backpack. if you fancy pretty sheets, tiles and a pool, search elsewhere. for my purpose it's perfect. one negative point: no free drinking water. keep exploring!

      There's a nice park near hostel. Close to airport and other tourist attractions. If you are sensitive to smell i suggest to bring your room refresher/essential oil...because the door is closed for AC. There was a kinda smelly guy when i was there, i almost died of the smell, after he checked out, everything was fine.

      Sweet people, simple place, great value!”

      I loved staying here! After initially booking one week I ended up staying over a month!! The owner and staff are the sweetest people, very nice and accommodating. The place itself is very simple and basic but for the price it's absolutely appropriate value. It did get quite hot during the day and the fans in the room don't equally reach all the capsules. I was mostly away and coming back just to sleep and for that it was perfect. Highly recommended for the minimalist budget traveler ;)

      Not the best... ”

      This hostel was in walking distance from everything that was in Old City, but beyond that you'd want to either rent a scooter or take a taxi. I did like the way the beds were set up, as it gave you tons of privacy. The staff were extremely helpful in planning things. On my first morning there, I went to the kitchen to make some breakfast, and there were 2 cockroaches flying and crawling around. The bathrooms were okay. Only 2 toilets but 4 showers for 2 floors of dorms. There was one morning where I couldn't even use a washroom before I had to leave, even though I had woken up 30 minutes before I had to leave. They weren't the cleanest either. Overall, it was okay, but I wouldn't stay here again.

      Disappointed with their service, but the place is ok”

      I stayed one night there. It's a very simple place and I small area to have breakfast/interact with other travelers by the entrance. When I stayed there, there were only another few travelers, but I think if the hostel is fully booked it's probably a bit hard to use the facilities as there are only a few bathrooms and showers. They also help you to book buses to go to Pai and other cities. Agoda offered me to pay a bit extra for breakfast and when I got there I found out that breakfast was free. I tried to talk to them to refund me the difference, but the guy at the reception didn't seem to care and communicating with him was very hard, because he spoke no English and our translations didn't seem to make sense to each other. So, I felt like he didn't care and didn't want to help me to solve the problem, a disappointment to me.

      Bad smell”

      There was a really bad smell at this place, like cat urine, and although there's a kitchen of sorts you wouldn't want to use it. When I checked out and went to get my key deposit of 150 baht, the owner asked if I'd take 80 baht. When I declined he said he had to go to the ATM, but never came back. The woman at reception then pulled open a drawer and gave me back my money. .. With so many good hostels in Chiang Mai, I'd give this one a miss. Although, if they're struggling to refund key deposits, maybe they won't be around much longer.
