5 Hostel in Chiangmai


Where should I stay in Chiangmai?

Whenever I want to go to Chiangmai, my big problem is ‘Where should I stay?’ because there are soooo many hostel in Chiangmai. 

Chiangmai is very famous destination between November to February because of  that period is the coldest weather in Thailand. Not only for foreigner, also Thai people .

One thing you have to know, there are many long holiday in Thailand and Thai people will head to the mountain for feel cold weather. So you have to plan for the transportation as soon as you can.

The Yard Team went to Chiangmai and separate to try to stay in many hostel and the hostel are different style for different people. We will try our best to tell you more as detail below.

Baan Heart Thai

“Baan” in Thai means “Home”.

This place can be home for you because of two sisters who care everything. They will find the good food in very local style for your lunch even you don’t ask and definitely very tasty.

The common room first floor, they provided a long table for traveler can meet and chat. The bathroom is super clean because of the ventilation design is perfect. Can’t say any thing good enough for the mattress, it’s super good with curtain, I’m sure you will go to the lobby and say ‘extend one more night please’ because of you wake up late.

S*Trip is located near night bazaar so if you are looking for the place where locate in the perfect location, should book here.

The most thing I like is the breakfast box, they will ask you when you fill the check in form.

In case you plan to go out and explore Chiangmai in early morning, you can ask them for that (so sweet).

The mattress is very comfy and the room is clean.

If you decide to stay in this place, don’t forget to enjoy the huge balcony under the shade of big tree (very relax).

The Planter’s hostel

If you are someone who don’t like the busy place but still want to see the city sometime, the planter’s hostel is the place for you.

I really happy to know that they have the vegetable garden in the back yard and we can collect it and cook in the outdoor kitchen in Thai style.

You can spend whole day in the hostel, good coffee from the cafe in the hostel and cook your own food from fresh vegetable from own garden and enjoy beer time in the evening, that’s all for relaxing day.
