Great hostel, best I've stayed in chiang mai. Very central, great staff, each bed had a curtain for privacy. Clean, showers were hot. What more could you ask for?
I came to Chiang mai alone and this was a great place to meet other travelers. Also the staff was super helpful with planning travel by bus and even called a taxi for me. Hug hostel was very clean with hot water. Would definitely recommend to any solo traveler.
Highly recommend Hug hostel . Although it's not in a very lively part of the city the staff and the people here male up for it. The staff are very approachable and helpful. The food and the atmosphere are great and it's very clean and well maintained. I stayed longer than I originally planned and will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Thailand!
Hug was a perfectly good hostel. Clean rooms and bathrooms, nice A/C, and a solid location right on the middle of north wall of the old city. They had a nice entertainment room with a tv and two computers you could use as well. That being said, not a very social atmosphere within the hostel, but good value for the money.
