Super friendly staff and great location”
The staff is super friendly and nice. Easy access to Nimmanhaemin road, MAYA shopping center and an abundance of food and coffee shops. Clean, well organized and well kept. I highly recommend this place for anyone who is looking to get a bang for their buck and a quiet location near Nimman.
Clean, Good location, Good Bed”
-Good ~comfy bed ~clean room, toilet ~good location near street food and convenient store ~nice owner a Man ~good price ~not long from main road 10 mins walk.
Wonderful location and good staff”
It is in the best position of yours, and the free and comfortable chairs in the spacious space will make you more relaxed. Especially, the fabric of the bed cover was used in the hotel, which made the bed more pleasant. I look forward to more travelers with friendly bosses and staff. I still can not believe this price
Warm welcome and very nice services ”
Recommend! When I walked into this hostel, the first thing that I had received was sincerely warm welcome from the hotel's owner. Nice, clean and safety bedroom but there was some noise when I walked on the floor. There are 4 toilets and 3 showers. Many facilities were provided for residences such as hair dryer, hanger, water heater etc. but the drainages in shower rooms were quite not well. Recommend! It's OK if you want to take some rest in the reasonable-value hostel and get more friendships. Good luck
Very comfortable, friendly and clean hostel in the nice Nimann area”
The Yuan hostel is a cosy hostel run by Nat, who is extremely attentive and helpful. He will do anything to make yourself feel at home. It is situated in the Nimann area which is really nice. Lots of little cafés, eateries and artsy shops. The hostel is very clean. There is a large common area with games, a ping-pong table and a large flatscreen tv. A small kitchen area allows you to drink coffee, tee and/or eat something. There are mixed dormitories, a women dormitory and a men dormitory as well as private rooms, all equipped with AC and large comfy beds. There is also a seating lounge with comfy sofas upstairs in the room area. Wifi is very good. I highly recommend this place.
Surrounded with bars and music, if you like it. Large common area.”
Lighting in toilet and shower area is not quite good. A little bit dimmed. Dorm room has locker for every beds, with keys provided, nice. Kettle, microwave oven, refrigerator in the common area. A good base.
Wonderful hostel and staff! Second home”
We ended up staying at Yuan for nearly two weeks and the staff treated us extremely well. They are best friends and function as a family, making this a fun place to stay. They worked out with us in the lobby, practiced English, and always invited us to drink with them at the bar out front. Duan, who often works at the reception area, speaks English and had great recommendations of places to go, and even helped us scan and print paperwork when we had to go to the doctor and deal with insurance. Would definitely recommend this hostel, especially if you'd like to see an interesting ex-pat/student community and want to get out of Old Town. There are venders and restaurants as well as coffee shops all around here, and the hostel is also close to Maya shopping center (4th floor food court is worth checking out!), the University, and the hospital, if necessary.
Friendly hostel in an amazing city ”
Yuan Hostel is a perfect place to stay in a perfect city. Rooms and bathrooms are cleaned everyday. All of the staff members I met were incredibly helpful and friendly. As a solo female traveler, I felt very safe with the measures that were taken such as the free locker, and digital room lock. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Chiang Mai.
It was a perfect place with a great deal. Everything was perfect; location, local shops, and staffs ect..... One of staff, Pimp was great. He answers all my quistions. so kind🙏🙏🙏 I will come back to Chinagmai near future. and Definitely will stay at Yuan hostel❤️❤️❤️
Thought I would stay one night but ended up staying four in a dorm room which I don't normally do. It was very clean, safe and comfortable. The staff are super friendly and wifi is really good. Modern, cool common areas to hang out in. There was a lot of noise from the street because of the Thai New celebrations but I just put in earplugs. The room had good aircon.
We stayed in a 3 bed room with our own bathroom, that was really spacious. ”
The hood is really cool with many bars and cafes, but the hostel's still not noisy. The staff is very friendly. There's a shared kitchen with basic breakfast stuff on offer for free. Would definitely stay there again.
good place to stay”
I highly recommend Yuan hostel - it's a nice place to stay with very helpful and nice staff, enough space to hang out and socialize and comfortable beds! I enjoyed my stay, and I also loved the area the hostel is located at. I only stayed two nights, but it's a good place to stay even longer.
Wonderful staff and owner was very nice and helpful in many ways, especially when I got sick and was confined to bed. I had a birthday there and Owner and staff surprised me with a cupcake & candle, singing Happy Birthday up to my room...priceless!
Good place, great people”
The staff at Yuan are all awesome and the facility is great. Brand new and clean. If you're a musician, there is a piano and two guitars which is absolutely great for the traveling musician. Location is perfect if you're looking to explore the Nimman area. It is also very easy to grab a songthaew into the city from here.
Amazing hostel! Such a little gem!”
Me and my friend stayed here for a few nights - best hostel we have stayed in! Fantastic staff, great location within walking distance and biking distance (free bikes) to main square, shops, bars, clubs, cafes and restaurants all so nearby. The hostel is so cool with piano and guitars, quirky sitting rooms with TVs and its own coffee shop. Beds are comfy and hostel just has that homey feel with free tea, coffee and biscuits with a great kitchen you can use. Would stay here again we have loved it !
Great base for exploring the mountains”
I chose Yuan Hostel because t was conveniently located rigt between the mountains in the west and the old city in the east. The staff was great and felt like a family. The owners were very helpful with any question I had and their english is above average, so no confusions or misscommunications. The place has a few nice common rooms with books and board games laying around. The piano and guitars are also a sweet touch for the general atmosphere. When I took a solo daytrip to the mountains, the staff prepared a very nice lunch pack for a very good price. I had hired a scooter and the traffic and roads to get from the hostel to the mountains feel very easy and relatively safe to navigate. The only negative point that I can find is that the provided toilet paper was a bit too thin to use comfortably so please change that 😊 This hostel attracts very nice people to have a chat with and I made some nice new friends here. Will definetely stay here again next time I'm in Chiang Mai!
Modern & friendly budget hostel”
The hostel was located in the Nimman Road, within walking distance to many major coffee shops (Ristr8tto, Dolcetto, Impresso). It was a brand new hostel and very clean. Bed was comfy and we have our own curtain. Bathroom was cleaned every day. Nat-the front desk guy was very friendly, he showed me how to get around. Free bike rentals. 7-eleven was a few distance away. I would love to come back to Chiang Mai and stay here again :)
Feel like a second home”
Good location - in the center of Nimman Area, 10 min to Maya Mall, 1 min to 7-11, and walking distance to many nice restaurants and cafes. Friendly Staff - staff are all very friendly, and always with smile on Good Atmosphere - it is a 2-store hostel. Both 1&2 floor have large common area, which I enjoy spending my time in. Owner is so thoughtful locating books, games like jenga and poker in every corner of the hostel. It's beneficial for solo or group traveler that we can enjoy our time even we are too lazy to go outside. Bonus - there are a restaurant and a travel agency within the hostel. Local tours are provided. Stayed here for 6 nights, good value for money.
Excellent facilities, love the owner :)”
Is a nice space, the owner is a really happy person and he will try to help you even when he doesn't speak too much English he is always with a smile and willing to help... make my day. Location is "far" from Old Town but is in the center of Nimman area, near Chiang Mai University, Maya Mall and lots of coffee places. If you like this area I think this hostel is good value for the money... I stayed for almost one week, went to Pai and came back here :)
The best !”
The receptionist, it was an elderly guy, was great ..he arranged tours for me. Even socialised with guests as well. Being a solo traveller, I managed to make quite a number of friends while I was there too. Definitely will come back again.
