We got a recommendation to stay at FWD House from a friend during our 5 week trip through SE Asia. We booked 3 nights when we arrived and were pleased to be received by some friendly staff. The outer reception area is somewhat detached from the sleeping area, which was strange and also brought up questions about the security of...

Arriving here at 5am, it did have a strange atmosphere, as there is only one dorm room and it can be very quiet, so if you're looking to meet lots of people there are probably better places. Saying that, I enjoyed my stay here. It is very clean, the beds are the most private I have ever seen and the...

This hostel is definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed at throughout my entire experience of traveling. The best for so many reasons. The owner, Win was so helpful, even before me and my friend arrived there. He helped us arranged some important activities to do in Chiang Mai for our short stay there. The bed-box was such a...

Win and his little family has taken the dorm living into another level. Their bed box is wonderful, it didn't seem like you are staying in a dorm room. Win helped us so much arranging our activities and ways to get to other cities. They are really nice and warm. The rules in the house makes our stay comfortable, but...

Stayed at FWD for three nights in October and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The unique box style beds make you feel as if you are if a private room despite being in a dorm. The safe is very friendly and helpful. When it comes to mapping out your time in Chiang Mai the staff is ready to...

The service my friend and I received at FWD was exceptional. It felt like the owner, Win, was committed to making our experience at FWD and in Chiang Mai as easy as possible. From helping us book trips out of town and activities in Chiang Mai to finding some belongings that my friend had lost in Chiang Mai, Win gave...

The rooms and bed were comfortable, the staff and guests were very nice, the location was great. Don't really know what else to say. Perfect! I fell on my motorbike leaving a nasty wound on my arm and the owner dressed it every day and night for free. Very nice people running this place. If you're staying in Chiang Mai,...

My only criticism of this place is that it is not designed to be a social hostel. Everyone retires to their own cubicle and it is hard to know how many people are even in the room at a given time. Besides that, it is great. The beds were comfortable, the lighting in the room was good, the AC was...

I have no doubt that everyone who has been giving rave reviews here are correct. I had originally booked for 4 nights during Songkran for this year (2013) several months in advance through booking.com. I booked so far in advance, in fact, that i am almost embarrassed. Anyway, a few weeks later, the booking.com people got in touch with me...

Perfect location just a 15 minute walk to the amazing temples and right in the middle with short walks to the night bazaar and markets and restuarants. The showers are great and spacious and the dorm is designed well with privacy and a safe but also a chance to meet other travellers. The owners were outstanding in their service, welcoming...

“They turn the a/c off during the day so if you plan to stay in the hostel you may want to get a bed closer to the windows.”

“I think, every bed-box is great, but maybe if you don't like cold, like me, you better prepare some socks, extra blanket, and sweater, just in case, because at night, the weather may be quite cold and affect the temperature of the room as well”

“This is not a party hostel. They have only one room for 10 people, which is very good if you want to stay relaxed.”
AmriP, 11 May 2013 | Read review
“Ask for a room away from the window because a lot of light comes in that big window”
