Authentic Stay ”

This is the loveliest place I have stayed at so far. Pu is the most amazing and hospitable host ever, always going the extra mile. She makes you feel right at home and with the small, old, wooden, cozy house, with personal thought put into the very cute decorations, it feels more like staying with family. It's a much more authentic, local experience. The rooms are small, but cozy. Everything is super, super clean. There is a fridge that you can use, and drinking water available(!). My first room was a bit too hot, so I later switched to a different one, which also had just a fan, just because I was also using it throughout the day. It was warm but still pleasant. If you need a bit more air during the day, there are two super comfortable hammocks downstairs in the cool lounge area. Pu has a menu with different dishes to choose from, and she makes delicious Thai coffee. I had the room at the back, and with earplugs no bother from street noise. The house itself, was quiet enough, with the other guests being great, too. The location is very central, and close to a beautiful part of the old city walls. For me, atmosphere and cleanliness is everything, so I would definitely recommend this place. You will be in good hands with Pu.

Paapu is amazing!!!”

Paapu is an amazing host. She’s the sweetest and most helpful person I’ve met in Chiang Mai. Her guest house is adorable and I highly recommend staying here. I moved to Chiang Mai and stayed here while looking for an apartment and job. Paapu assisted me in my apartment hunt and was there for me when I needed any and every thing. The hospitality from her alone was 5 stars in itself, but in addition, the quaint, cozy, hipster-esque guest house she has is also perfect and well priced for someone needing a home away from home. The WiFi is also superb if you also work online like I do. The cafe downstairs is charming with breakfast, coffees, smoothies, wine, cheese plates, etc. It’s in line of the Old City next to bars, restaurants, and within walking distance of the night market. Couldn’t have picked a better spot. You’ll love it!

Perfect for solo traveller”

Paapu’s house is a gem of find in a city teaming with ordinary places to stay. Pu’s home is just that: a warm and inviting place to relax and immediately get to know a genuine and authentic local. Pu is a generous soul who will ensure that you are cared for, well fed and have everything you need to enjoy your stay. This cute and clean space, while simple, is well-priced and comfortable for someone looking for an authentic experience more than “just another hotel room”. Highly recommended

My home in Chiang Mai ”

Home away from home. The host - Ms Pu definitely is one of the best host I have ever met in my travel life. From the day I arrived till I checked out after 6 nights, the place is always on tip top condition, I love my single room, simple but more than enough for a solo traveller and yet so homey. The common area on the ground floor is absolutely a corner for me to spend my time in reading or doing nothing. Pu made me feel very welcome to this city and that is a kind of feeling that you could not find from hotel staff and normal hostel. I love the way she run her guesthouse and those personal touch made my Chiang Mai trip very unforgettable! I

Paapu is very kind and lovely. She managed it alone, but it was clean and cozy. There is laundry service, and she is excellent at cooking. Even when I was spending time alone in the lobby because it was hot during the day, she took care to make me feel at home. The accommodation was the best, and I miss the cat so much.

If you want to discover what is heaven, without lux and useless commodities.”

I normally stay in 4 star Hotel or very good airbnb, but I saw so many good comment about Pappy house, I wanted to see by myself... One of the cheapest place I stayed, and defenitly one I remember the most. The 7 rooms of Pappu is not wonderful, you share not the cleanest bathroom (Asian shower) but you feel at home. Sorry better than your house.... Relax, happy, someone is taking care of you, Pappu... Thanks god I met her'... Come and enjoy her place, she is magic. She do 99 % of the charm and 99% is from the city, the excursions, the food, the massage... Then live an 198 % pleasure holidays.... 😊😊😊😊

Pappu is such a lovely person! She had been really comprehensive when we told her very late that we were stuck in Chiang Rai. She maintained our booking for the night after without any additional charge. Moreover her place is peaceful and quiet even if it is well located in the center of Chiang Mai.

You might just fall in love, if not with the place, than most certainly with Paapu, who runs the place with genuine hospitality and a big smile in her eyes. It's located next to the main square-road, but for some reason the traffic doesn't bother: Paapu's house feels like an oasis, good quiet music, best cappuccino in town, 2 hammocks to just fall asleep any time of day.

Paapu is a nice person and one of the reasons why you should book her accommodation is because for you to meet her. Her business inspires me as I would want to have a business like hers. This place is not your ordinary accommodation and that you cannot miss. It is a place with character that it does not need to copy other accommodation just because it needs to please a traveler. It is just what it is is and regardless of the flaw, like hearing the vehicles around because it is near the street, you will still love to stay here just because it is a place that you could call home in the midst of a very touristy place.

My home in Chiang Mai”

I went traveling by myself for the first time and Chiang Mai was my first destination. As I was a bit nervous about it, it was important for me to feel safe and homely at my first stop - and I found that and more at Paapu‘s! It was really more like a homestay. Paapu is incredibly nice and helpful and always welcomes you at home and asks about your day and plans. She can also book trips for you. She helped me with phonecalls and flight bookings and happily answered all my 13672 questions patiently and thus washed my insecurities away. After my last night she even got up at 5:30 to take my to the airport. Paapu loves what she does and puts all her energy and passion in her hostel. Above that she is the best cook! Don‘t hesitate to stay with this beautiful soul and woman - Paapu‘s company and smile is worth so much more than a room with AC in an anonymous hostel - and the fan really does its job anyway ;-) I miss you Paapu!
