Backpack Hostel

Chiang Rai

Situated in Chiang Rai and with Old Bus Station reachable within 300 metres, Backpack Hostel offers express check-in and check-out, non-smoking rooms, a shared lounge, free WiFi and a terrace. The property is around 1.2 km from Wat Pra Sing, 2.5 km from Central Plaza ChiangRai and 13 km from Wat Rong Khun - The White Temple. The hostel has family rooms.

The hostel features some rooms that have a safety deposit box, and rooms are equipped with a shared bathroom with a shower. Everything. I give a lot of places 10, because ratings here are a bit weird and sometimes ambiance, the people, and owners make up for things that are lacking. This isn’t one of those places. I think this place is pretty new, but it will definitely be the place to be in Chiang Rai soon. The host are perfect. They will give you advice and are very kind. I had a nosebleed and some of it got on the sheets and the owner wasn’t upset at all. Crackers, cookies, tea, coffee, water, coco, bread and jam are all provided for free. They give recommendations on things you didn’t think about doing. Super clean. The bathroom had a bit of stray toilet tissue when I was being shown it. I sat in my room for about five minutes and it was clean.

The property is around 1.2 km from Wat Sri Suphan, 1.8 km from Elephant Care & Grand Canyon Jumping and 2.1 km from Chang Puak Market. The accommodation offers a shared kitchen and free WiFi throughout the property. The most beautiful hostel I have been to. I liked it so much that I spent one full day in the terrasse and garden instead of walking around the city. The garden is cute, everything is nicely decorated you really can feel in a real home. Also suitable for working as there is a big table in the common room you can use as a desk. The beds are comfortable and the curtains for privacy are much appreciated. All the facilities are perfect. The neighbourhood is quiet yet close to interesting places. I hope I can go again soon.

Well situated in the centre of Chiang Mai, Khunluang Hostel offers air-conditioned rooms, a shared lounge, free WiFi and a garden. This property is set a short distance from attractions such as Chang Puak Gate, Chang Puak Market, and Chiang Mai Gate. The accommodation features a shared kitchen, room service and organising tours for guests. The most impressive hostel I have ever stayed in! I felt like in a boutique hotel, except the rooms were dorms! The staff is the friendliest, truly amazing and really recommending top things to see/do in Chiang Mai (I wouldn’t have seen the stunning Monk’s trail if not for them). Coffee and tea are available all day long. WiFi works fantastic in the rooms and common area. The decoration is so inspiring, from the showers to the chilling area in the patio. The beds are comfy, wide, with a little “cupboard” and a mirror to organize your stuff. Great great great!!! I loved this place so much I came back two extra nights after my trip to Chiang Rai. And I would come back here for my next stay in Chiang Mai.
