    Creepy night”

    We do appreciate the location for this hotel very accessible.

    creepy night in this hotel, the price was cheap but we didn't expect it will be that creepy. As a traveler we didn't feel secure in this at all place. The place just needs a total renovation seriously. Not advisable for ladies to stay alone in this place.

    Best thing is the location ”

    Location, staff, big window in our room

    This place has a lot of potential. Unfortunately it does not fulfill it at all. The room was dirty, floor not wiped, long dark hair everywhere, including the rug, the bed, the sheets (which were obviously not changed after the guest before). The shared toilet was also not clean and not hygienic. The place could be really awesome and comfy if it would be restored and painted freshly and if it would be kept clean!

    The location

    I had a very good experience in this hostel considering the price is very very cheap, the location is perfect and the staff girl is very nice, although is important to mention that the room was not that clean, the bathroom was also a bit dirty but nothing unbelievable for the price we paid, I had a very good trip. :)

    location

    I wouldn't recommend this place unless your only other option is sleeping on a park bench. The place smelled like a pet store. Our sheets were clearly dirty. There were wet stains and other people's hair all over the bed. It was awful.

    great location, friendly staff, great view

    I stayed there for one night. Awesome location. The staff was welcoming and friendly. Bed sheets were dirty though, with many stains and lots of hairs. The bathroom needed a clean up too. The place is ok if you are on a budget and can stand poor cleanliness standards.

    Dirty, noisy, ugly”

    The place is ugly. Two shemales smoking cigarettes in the lobby were in charge but not helpful at all. The rooms are dirty, the bedsheets covered with long black hairs and the pillow soaked with a disgusting female perfume. On the shared toilet you have to put the used paper into a bin. But the toilet is also a shared shower. When the bin with the used paper is full of shower water, the paper is flooded on the shower floor...

    Disappointed to find a separate, shared bathroom. Grubby bed sheets, room a little dirty and basic, and did not feel homely. I contemplated cancelling. However, friendly staff, decent location.

    Dirty, smelly, good location but NOT WORTH IT”

    good location

    Picked this guest house due to fairly positive online reviews and excellent location. It is true that the location is amazing- we were in Chiang Mai for the Loi Krathong festival, and we were a short walk from the heart of the festivities (southeast corner of the moat in the old city). However, this place was so bad we left after just one night and swallowed the lost payment we'd already made for the second. Our room and the whole house reeked of cigarettes, including the bed and sheets. The location is noisy, we could hear traffic and firecrackers all night. The bed was not clean- sheets had stains, dirt, and burnt holes from cigarettes. The smell was truly so bad that my clothes reeked after just one night sleeping in this place. The shower doesn't drain. The place is a old office building (not even converted, just with beds thrown in), so the sum effect of the grime and building made us feel like we were illegally squatting.

    Clean helpful location

    The room is matched with the price. You get what you pay for. The guesthouse is very well located. It is not far to the markets and perfect for doing sightseeing in the Old Town. It's a basic and simple guesthouse. There was nothing to complain about and I would book this guesthouse again for a future stay in Chiang Mai.

    its located in the old city

    We would never, ever recommend this guest house, we cannot understand the qualification mark they have in a prestigious web site as Agoda. We booked three nights and, after seeing our rooms, we decided we would better leave. We found a really big spider in one of our two rooms, the other room smelt like tobacco covered with freshener, one of them was very noisy, the other was like sleeping in a shopwindow, no intimacy at all. Not only this, the atmosphere was very strange, you would never say this was a guesthouse. Not to hurt their feelings we told them we had made an error and that we would only stay for one night. They told us that this was not a problem and that we should contact Agoda about the cancellation. At the end Agoda explained to us that the hotel would not accept any cancellation without penalty charges, we had to pay for the THREE nights.

    Dirty room, dirty sheets, semen stains on blanket, low quality bed and amenities. There are tons of other nicer hotels and hostels for the same price... Just don't. This was easily the worst hotel/hostel we stayed at in all of our travels in SE Asia and India.
