We stayed at Gongkaeq Chiangmai Home for several nights before heading to Pai. The hostel has a lovely atmosphere, with the dorm buildings and private rooms arranged like little houses around the garden. There is lots of seating outside under an open-roofed area, and I loved the big comfy cushions and hearing the geckos and frogs at night whilst sitting out there.
Free toast available 24/7 was a great touch and there's a book exchange, two free computers and a washing machine (40B, can fit 11kg!) and racks/lines to dry your clothes on outside each 'house'. Rooms were clean with air con, reading lights and door locks. The showers and toilets were mostly fine, but there was a problem with the water on one of the days we were there.The front gate is locked at night, but guests are given a key so that they can get in if out later. The staff were very friendly and helpful in organising transport.
The location is ok - there aren't many places to eat, but you're very close to the Saturday/Sunday Walking Markets, where you can pick up great food (such as banana spring rolls for 5B), if you're there at the weekend. Other than that, there is also a 7-11 nearby.
