I have never stayed anywhere closer to hell. We stayed here for a recording breaking hour before moving to a different hostel. Immediately when we arrived in our room we were shocked by how it resembled nothing more than a prison cell. First thing we did was check for bed bugs by lifting the mattress and the beds were infested....

Great hostel for meeting people and finding more travel pals. There is a bar and pool down the road which is part of the hostel and we spent every night there to start off, great atmosphere and rooms are good for the price.

This would be a great hostel if the septic system worked, the toilets piping is pushing water underneath the tiles in the bathroom so when you flush the toilet feces and urine contaminated water rises up through the floor between the tiles. the staff here are just OK ; they are very strict with the rules here and are very...

Stayed here in January 2017. Initially booked only one night but when we arrived we said we would book the second as the reception looked nice and clean. We arrived up to the room and were disappointed, rooms are pokey and smell damp. I think this was down to the bathroom in the room having poor drainage and the extractor...

Deejai is a great hostel if you want to meet fellow backpackers. Its laid back and has a great hanging-out space (and pool!). The staff at the hostel are also always around to provide support or recommendations which is fantastic. The location itself isn't 'central' to all that chiang may has to offer, but its by no means out in...

This is a great hostel for backpackers and laid back easy going people. We had lots of fun here and met lots of new people! Guys who are moaning about this place it's literally less than £5 a night!! If you want to moan then go somewhere else and pay more it's simple!

Great hostel! Perfect for meeting people. If you're travelling alone you will have no trouble meeting people here. Facilities are ok, but I would say that the walls are paper thin. Expect to here people talking till the early hours of the morning. Probably not advised if you're not going to be black out drunk every night you're there. Staff...

Ok, the hostel does have a swimming pool and it's good value for money, although in Thailand you can stay in better places for the same price. There are no plugs beside the beds, just one plug in the room that does not work properly. The aircon is straight to the bed what made everyone in my room to catch...

This is a great place for solo travellers. The garden/pool was great for mingling and getting to know people. The rooms on the other hand were a bit rough. The shower head was covered in mould. The mattresses had Springs that dug into your back. My blanket didn't look like it had been washed in ages as it was super...

English Phil is one of the best hostel workers I've ever encountered! The hostel is decent. Only complaints are that our room got pretty stuffy and they kept leaving the bathroom plug cover off after cleaning so cockroaches would come in! Breakfast is good too.
