THE WHAT’S UP GUIDE TO HOSTELS IN CHIANG MAI

The Hub Hostel

Like hostels the world over, the collection of hostels in Chiang Mai offers economically priced accommodation and hospitable spots to meet like-minded travellers. In general, most of the hostel accommodation is located in or close to the Old City, but there are a few premises in the environs of the chic Nimmanhaemin area.

The choices cover all genres from the traditional Doi Doo Dao Home Hostel to the ultra-modern Plearn Hostel. Some Chiang Mai hostels are limited to dormitory accommodation while others have private rooms too. Amenities are not the same at all of the establishments, but most have some kind of safe place to keep valuables, WiFi, communal areas or lounges, and air-conditioning. We have compiled a table of recommended Chiang Mai hostels which are listed below.
