“Fantastic family run guest house”
Reviewed 30 April 2012 via mobile

I stayed here for about 10 days back in January and I found it to be very welcoming. It appears to be family run and everybody is very friendly. The rooms were always clean and done so by the nicest little Thai woman who also attended to laundry service. It is in a great location as well, in the old city part of Chiang Mai. Everything to do is within walking distance, but then again everything in Thailand is. Highly recommend this place.

Stayed January 2012

I booked two rooms for an overnight stay in Chiang Mai for 400 and 600 bhat - a standard queen room and a double with fan. When we arrived at the guesthouse we were given a 'queen' room which was much smaller than the photos on the website indicated, with no couch, smaller TV and a tiny bathroom. Shower was not separate from toilet as shown in pictures, and the entire bathroom was a cubicle off the main room (walls did not extend to ceiling) leaving no privacy. Light fittings were also a bit dodgy looking with lines strung up overhead (not fixed).

The 'double room with fan' turned out to be a single bed - but the staff were willing to change the room for a double bed when asked. We also had to request towels, toilet paper and soap as they weren't in the room. The rooms as well as the towels were not very clean either.

Staff were helpful and friendly but this did not make up for the poor state of the room and the considerable noise which kept us awake at night (staff watching TV, closing up roller shutters at night). Overall pretty disappointing.

Stayed at thai coconut as after failing to find our recommend hostel. I am travellling with my friend and have been backpacking for over 6 months so have had a share of guesthouses. Thai coconut was a refreshing change, we found the staff extremely helpful and made our stay very relaxed. The room was excellent value for money and we slept extremely well...after many busy places it was lovely to have a real chilled out place to stay. The location is great just off the main street near the markets and cheap food stalls which is great for us as we are on a small budget. All in all was excellent place for us to stay.

Thai Coconut House is one of the nicest places I've stayed in my 6 months backpacking. The lady who runs the place is one of the loveliest people you can meet - warm, friendly and will do anything in her power to make your stay a comfortable one. By the time you leave you'll feel more like friends! The place itself is spotlessly clean, the rooms are perfect (and cheap) and the area by reception is great for chilling out with a book or using the free internet. There's also free breakfast and tea/coffee. If you're looking for a chilled place to relax, this is definitely the place to come. I'll definitely come back here if I come back to Chiang Mai.

this place is...amazing! i dont normally write reviews, but i felt so strongly about this place that i should! so came into chaing mai looking for a hostel, and bumped into this one just off the main street. its pretty small and quiet, but the staff are UNBELIEVABLY friendly and the place was just so clean and nice! compared to the hostels recommended by lonely planets, this place was a million times better!

the rooms are ridiculously cheap, i stayed in a single room for 200baht and 250baht when sharing with someone else (125baht each). each morning we were greeted by the lovely staff who made us breakfast and went out there way to make this stay pleasant!

i booked all my trips through my hostel (school boy error you might think), but this is after going through all the TATs, local tourist places and after going on the trips, i found out i payed far far less than anyone else. even booking public transport, sao (the manager) would help and ring up different places such as local bus companies and got me a quote (which when i did further research found out she was absolutely true). so i knew she wasnt out to rip me off but t genuinely help.

overall, this place has been the best place ive stayed at by far, in terms of location, actual building itself, but mainly the staff, esp. sao who was just so lovely! when i arrived in chaing mai, i went round loads of hostels recommended by lonely planets and other random ones. definately pick this place if you're in chaing mai
