Staff are able to communicate with Basic English only. Hardly to give recommendations and explanations if needed suggestion on restaurants or tours or etc. Towel is not provided. No bus services booking offered by the hostel. There is no curtains at the bed thus No Private area. Toilet shower are not so clean and 2 out of 4 showers are broken in the level of my stay.

Not worth it”
SO hostel is so not worth it. I don't think they are interested in their business anymore. The staff doesn't care, and they are not very friendly. The room is very basic, but well, that's what I paid for so not complaining about that. I stayed there for 2 nights, didn't enjoy it at all. It was quite isolated cause nobody else seemed to be around. They have these nice bikes parked outside the hostel, I asked to rent one and they wanted a deposit and the rent was more expensive than the bike I could rent just around the corner, who by the way, did not ask me for a deposit. So I am at the hostel I am staying at, and they have my details and my luggage, but they need a deposit, and a stranger street bike rental company does not. Maybe they ran into some people who stole their bike.

Nice gem in an unlikely place”
Normally I'd tell people NOT to stay on Loi Kroh Rd, it is pretty seedy...but it is changing. This place, among a few others, are new and changing the neighborhood. It's near (walking distance) a lot of places tourists would want to go (old city, night bazaar). Plenty of food options, but go elsewhere for nightlife.

Very satisfied. Will definitely stay again if coming to chiangmai. Love everything soho has got to offer. Tho many comments abt the staff not the friendliest lot, but to me it is fine as I only deal with staff for check in check out and some queries..the staff may not be smiling but they were not rude. So I feel it is unfair if unfriendly is considered as rude. They are rather helpful actually. For such a good hostel, I hope they maintain it we'll so that guests can find the same good hostel when they visit chiangmai again. I started seeing some rundowns eg wifi not working, elevator out of service, toaster not working when I check in again on the 3rd jan. Really hope they will maintain soho well.

I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel, the staff is very friendly, the rooms clean and I loved the chilling area where I met a lot of nice backpackers during my stay. There is a kitchen where you can have free coffee and tasty cookies. It isn't located in the very center, but very close to the main attraction of the city, the night market. Totally worth the money and I would always come again.

Very nice hostel in Chiang Mai. It's located very close to the night bazar, what is very convenient because you'll probably go there more than once. The double room with private bathroom is very good so nothing to complain. Note: bring your repellent because the mosquitos are everywhere in Chiang Mai, even inside the room.

Totally fine!”
Good location, was here during chiang mai, most of it on walking distance or cheap taxi jeeps / tuctucs, decent rooms, clean beds, matrass was good to for a hostel, big lockers, proper bathroom facilities, a big lounge area and you can use the kitchen. The two things that weren't there were the local feeling (it's a big building with 9 floors) and there was no breakfast facilities (they have free coffee and then, and fridge with some drinks and some snacks though) but there are loads of places around the hostel to have your breakkie! And it was way cheaper to book in front with agoda than to book/extend the room at the desk! And the private rooms look really decent too, bit more expensive though!
