I enjoyed my time at Deejai Backpackers and recommend this hostel to anyone traveling solo. The staff are friendly and accomadating. The facilities are well maintained and the pool is the ideal place to spend your day nursing those the occasional hangover.

You cannot beat the location and atmosphere that this place provides. We made some amazing friends while here, Rob and the staff were super helpful and helped provide us with a lot of insight to the area. The pool/bar was the perfect retreat after a long day of exploring. The place was clean and secure. Overall would highly recommend. It...

I loves Deejais! We made loads of new friends here and ended up going on some pretty cool group adventures! The two English guys who work there Rob and Phil are cool! Both of them come down to the pool and either DJ or have a few drinks with the "residents". There is a pool, not on campus slightly up...

Not more you could ask for. Cheap rooms, swimming pool and friendly staff. The bearded bloke was extremely helpful for any sort of trips or ideas. Would definitely go back purely for the atmosphere. The pool area is great for meeting people and a few drinks. Went to bungee jumping and that was fantastic.

We (an early 20s couple) stayed here for 2 nights during our travelling of Thailand. We stayed in an air con double room (lots of dorm style accommodation available) and really enjoyed our stay. The room itself was fine; with an ensuite and small balcony it was clean, simple and felt pretty secure. However the communal areas were the real...

I stayed here on a recommendation from a friend and I was glad to have gone there. It was a good place to socialise as a single traveller and I met lots of new people. The staff are friendly and take an actual interest in what you are doing with your time here, they help where they can and direct...

Well, where do I even start? Deejai is such a wonderful place to stay. Rob and Phil made my stay so memorable. They are the most lovely guys ever and just the kind of people you want to have in the hostel. I cannot express how accommodating they were/are to a friend who was in an accident and were always...

Meant to stay in Chiangmai for one week and ended up there for 3 mostly due to the hospitality shown to us by the fantastic staff at deejai, especially Rob and Phil who run the hostel. The service can't be faulted, it's clean, everyone wants to help you, it's excellent value for money and the food in the restaurant is...
