Travel Highlight

Making the Most of Your Time in Chiang Mai

Known as the “Rose of the North,” Chiang Mai is undoubtedly the cultural capital of Northern Thailand. Full of street life and the scent of frangipani, travelers are enchanted by its famous temples, exceptional cuisine and laid back attitude. High end coffee shops and state of the art movie theaters blend perfectly with local markets and ornate temples that have dotted its streets for centuries. Get lost on the Sunday Walking Street or slurp some noodles with locals while watching motorbikes zoom by. Chiang Mai will not disappoint even the most discerning of travelers.

Great value for money, dorms are spacious, staff super helpful ! Ton is a cool as guy. Plenty of trips can be organised from hostel. Cafe downstairs has great food just little expensive, but street market across the road ! Recommend to stay there for sure !


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.
