Without a doubt this is the best visueel in Chiang Mai. Khai will help you with anything you need and is quite possibly the nicest person in Thailand.
The rooms are super clean and the common area is perfect for relaxing and socialising. I stayed here twice and will definitely return.

Khai is amazing. But i'll get to Khai. First off, the guest house is extremely well place. Close to the centre of town and an easy walk to bars/restaurants and other points of interest. Taxi or bus to airport and bus terminal is easy.

MAKE SURE YOU ASK FOR THAILANDWOW (or Thailandwow1 - Thailandwow 2 is a whole different kettle of noodle soup).

The place is mellow and has ample services (in house restaurant/cafe with all manner of home cooked food and more western fare - if you're fresh off the boat as it were). There are individual rooms but i stayed in the dorm, a great bunch of people there, many of whom i travelled on with. The rooms were spacious and fan cooled. The was a bathroom for each floor as well. Large lockers were available for your stuff (though i just kept mine in the dorm.

The guest house is secured at night as well with a coded lock.

Now, on to Khai, he's a total rockstar. He basically arranged everything for us. Took us around town twice (during the lantern festival he found all the best spots). He arranged activities and even onward travel for us. I seriously considered staying on long just on the strength of how cool the place was.

Also, last note. Ask him about his card game. I'm teaching it to everyone now.

I've a lot of love for thailandwow and for Chaing Mai as a whole. A great part of the world you should be planning to visit right now!

Room tip: Private rooms on ground floor, dorms above. Dorms fan cooled. Bedding provided.

Basic hostel accommodation but a lovely atmosphere.

Khai goes above and beyond to help his guests, the staff are lovely and the environment is very chilled. Nice chill area and good food being served.

Khai also makes a “family dinner” for guests one night per week bought by tips left from previous guests on their family night! He uses family recipes and brings everyone together!

If your looking for a social place this is great! :-)

Thank you for your kindness and a lovely stay Khai!

Amazing and nice hostel with great people! Khai the owner will help you with anything you need! While the girls make you amazing food (especially the pad thai and smoothies) in big portions. The location is inside of the square and you can walk everywhere or ask Khai for a motorbike.
