I stayed in the outside-dorm of this hostel which offered indeed more privacy, than most normal dorm rooms. Everyone gets a huge (!) locker to put their entire belongings in. The facilities are relatively simple, but the place has a kitchen with an electric mixer and a stove so you can even cook and make your own smoothies. Being next to the river, you get a marvellous look from the huts/bungalows right at the riverside. There are also benches behind the house and tables, chairs and a sofa inside (where it's the coolest). This place attracts a variety of mostly easy to deal with people, who are not into party too much and kept to the hostels policy of not being too over the top past 11 pm. The hosts where also very nice and helpful and often up for a chat.
Due to the hostel being next to the river you had to literally bath in mosquito repellent. Otherwise you might see some critters walking around there (cockroaches - which are a normal sight in Chiang Mai anyway, frogs, a spider...). I personally am OK with all animals except for spiders, but the staff helps you out immediately, should you ever feel uncomfortable!
Everything was on point!
The river side zone is exactly what you need after a long day in the city. The only place that is not far from the city centre yet still quiet.
It’s the best choice for backpackers in Chiang Mai. Relaxed, well kept, great staff!
Very relaxed place, lots of places to chill during the day there with good WiFi and lots of charging sockets, use of a fridge and other facilities similar for free or a very small charge, would defo stay again
