My friend and I had to stay in Chian Mai for 6 weeks as we learned Thai massage, so we really needed a cheap but nice place to stay. After a terrible experience with another hotel, we decided to try out the YMCA following a fellow students suggestion.
For us it was only 15 minutes walking to school each day, and only 10 minutes to the old city, which was amazing.
The staff was very friendly, and very helpful. We learned a lot from them, one lesson is to always use a Tuk-Tuk instead of asking them to call a taxi; it's much cheaper.
The Internet was a bit moody, but we didn't come all this way for Facebook. They cleaned our rooms each day, and 2 new complimentary water bottles also. Good shower pressure and heat, bit low for my fiancé who stands over 6 feet, but that's to be expected in Thailand.
The restaurant was also good, with good prices and a good selection.
If I ever return to Chiang Mai I will most certainly return here!
