I stayed at Diva 3 with 4 of my friends. We rented the 4 bedroom dorm room and the owner/manager added a fifth bed to the room so it was perfect for the 5 of us. The place was clean. The beds are nothing special but they are good enough. The shared bathrooms were good enough. Also, they provide shower shoes for the bathrooms which is super nice. The walls are pretty thin so just be comfortable with asking people to shut up if they are out front talking and drinking late at night. What really sets this place apart from anywhere else is the staff. They are amazingly helpful. We booked all of our tours through them once we got there and they were extremely helpful with helping us find what we wanted and get everything set up. They knew when we were getting picked up and even offered to make sure we were awake. She also had great tips about where to see/go in the Chiangmai area. She arranged our transportation to Doi Suthep and the waterfall as well as our ride to the airport. When you book two tours through the hostel you get a free Thai massage from a massage place right around the corner. It was the amazing!! Way better than the Thai massage I got in Bangkok! And it was FREE. Another huge bonus is that they have a little restaurant right there at the hostel. I never ate dinner there because I preferred to explore the city but I had breakfast there twice during my short 4 day stay. It was delicious, reasonably priced, and extremely convenient. Diva is also conveniently located right inside the old city, extremely close to the both the weekend markets. Even though it wasn't my comfiest night of sleep I would definitely go back to Diva! Loved It!
