Chiangmai Backpack House
Ranked #256 of 788 Chiang Mai B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 January 2012

Made a reservation for this place *in person*, saw the staff write it down. Made the trek all the way back to this (inconvenient) location on the day of my reservation only to find that the room was already full. Ended up being stranded late at night with no place to stay, as many other hostels in the area were already full.

As for the rooms, you have a choice between really noisy (faces the busiest street in Chiang Mai), or stuffy with no windows or fresh air/ventilation.

Definitely do not stay here unless you have nowhere else to go. Places just a few blocks away are way more reliable/nice.
