My friend and I had to stay in Chian Mai for 6 weeks as we learned Thai massage, so we really needed a cheap but nice place to stay. After a terrible experience with another hotel, we decided to try out the YMCA following a fellow students suggestion. For us it was only 15 minutes walking to school each day,... More

This is the 5th time I have stayed here over the years traveling with friends. The location is good - safe, quiet residential area. The rooms are spotless. Hot shower that works! Friendly staff. Easy walking distance to the local's suburb with Thai eateries. Walkable to the old city too. Great breakfast at a guest house around the corner. The... More

Overall service is still good for the price, but the hotel is very old and needs to be refurbished. Excellent location near malls and public transportation. Front desk staff tries to be helpful, but sometimes language problems and the state of the facilities make it impossible to resolve complaints. WiFi never works properly, plumbing is simply a disaster, bad smells... More

We booked the YMCA as we hadn't much option for other accommodation during the loi krathong festival. We arrived and were greeted by what seemed to be a very confused young man. We weren't sure if we had come to the correct place as he mumbled to himself and searched among the papers. He unfortunately hadn't an idea what was... More

We stayed here for 7 weeks while working with a charity. The staff were incredibly helpful and polite and nothing was too much for them. Our room was large, ensuite and had air con. Only negatives were the hard beds (but this is common in Thailand) and the water was a brownish colour especially if it had been raining but... More

I had to stay here for two weeks on two separate occasions for some classes I was taking at the YMCA. We were on tight budgets so we shared bunk rooms but the accommodations were clean and adequate. The in-house restaurant had good, reasonably priced meals. The location is a ten minute walk to the shopping mall, yet is located... More

I stayed here for one night before another place opened up. The rooms are clean and basic. The building is a little worn, but I found it an inexpensive place to stay. There are better locations, and this is a bit far from most of the places you'll want to go, but if you are looking for a clean, basic... More

The staff at the YMCA are so friendly and helpful it makes staying at the International Hotel quite pleasant. Not fancy but cleaning staff stay on top of things daily. Having stayed here multiple times over the years I believe the food has improved from the past and remains reasonably priced. The neighborhood is quiet and is easy walking distance... More

Average location, not so simple internet and pleasing breakfast but not so pleasing pool. The staff were very good at letting us keep our packs there when we went trekking but English was not their strong point. Not a very attractive place to stay but I think the price was reasonable. Not the greatest place but that's probably because we... More

I got to know this place quite well, as I stayed there for 8 nights and for 5 days I had savage food poisoning (not from the YMCA) and was mostly confined to the room. Firstly, the good points.
