The smell was one of the worst ”
The smell in the room make it impossible to stay inside the room. I have been traveling for more than a year around the world, and been for 4 months in south east asia, and even I know that smell sometimes is a problem in certain hostel and hotel around SE Asia, this one was the worst I´ve had, I left the hostel. beside there are much better HOTELS for the same or lower price.

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.

Cons: some of the staff useless and not willing to help so much; bathroom and toilets just ok; i was there in a busy period, city map finished; loundry program cannot be changed, washing at 60degree only; need to pay to use pc. Pro: some of the staff is ok; location is good, busy road and close to old town; near there s a SupeRich exchange rate, very good, maybe the best in town; aircon and comfy beds; you can cook your own meal in the kitchen; good security.

Deluxe room great, standard horrible. ”
We stayed 2 nights at the deluxe room, and it was great! We stayed another 2 nights at the regular room and it was horrible... the shower was covered with black mold. Everytime we opened the shower door - it will hit the shower handle and water will start poring. The facilities are really nice. The staff is usually not very helpful, and you feel like you are bothering them with your questions (usually they are too busy playing cards). Overall - recommend the deluxe room. Do not recommend the regular.

The staff at reception not friendly and can not understand english so well. They did not remind the guest or knock down the door to tell the guest that their van pickup for tour has arrived. They did nothing! The worst part is they play poker card at the reception counter!

Dirty showers and rude staff ”
I stayed in a female dorm for 10 days. The staff is rude, they sit around playing cards; use all the washing machines all the time to do their personal laundry, and were not friendly nor helpfull at all. The room was ok but the showers were very dirty from the inside. They really should take some time between their games and laundry to actually do their job.

Near to night bazaar”
Basically most of the local drivers know this place so traveling from airport or having some travel agency car to travel to this hostel shouldn't be a problem. It is walkable distance to night bazaar but to the Tha Pae gate might consider taking cab. Quite a number of small bars and massage shops alongside. The only cons is the water in our bathroom could not subside due to the geographical build up of the place. Overall satisfactory.

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!

So Hostel was not "cheap" however, there was no soap in the washroom In the dorm bathrooms...very cheap! Also, there was hair & dustballs all around my bed. I stayed for 4 nights and, it was there from day 1. There was only 2 of us in the room the first night. I hated the waterfall showerhead In the showers!!! SO hard to rinse off the soap...handheld Is much preferred & much quicker/easier to rinse off. The a/c was good, the bed was comfy. Probably would stay here again.
