Cats and Hammocks”

Sook Jai is nice and close to the center of chiang rai, while also feeling a bit like you are in a garden. The atmosphere is laid back and there are lots of hammocks to relax in. There is also a lot of friendly cats wandering around, who aren't shy about coming into your room if you leave the door open!

A little piece of heaven in Chiang Rai / Un trocito de cielo en Chiang Rai”

One of the best hostels I've been in Thailand. The hammocks space is amazing, I could spend there hours and hours in front of the fire. But the best here is the staff. They are very professional and especially good people. For sure I will come back there if I came back to Chiang Rai, and of course, I'm already recommending it to the travelers I'm meeting. Hope to see you soon Thai Thai! :)

The only place you should stay”

This place was amazing! The hammocks and chill atmosphere made us love Chiang Rai even more. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. A great place for backpackers and people meeting up just before going to Laos. Don’t forget to ask the owner where he sells his famous fried chicken... you won’t regret it!

I dont understand any of the bad reviews..”

If you have a rolling suitcase dont come here, maybe try Disneyland instead. If you are a backpacker you have to come here. This staff are amazingly friendly and accommodating, they even fed me lunch a cupple days! This is a place where you will meet people from all over the world and share lots of storys. There is free coffee and tea. They have a bonfire everynight around the hammocks and it's easy to forget you're in a city. There are lots of happy cats on the property they may push the door to rooms open to stay warm at night. If thats not your thing.. well again maybe try Orlando Florida for your holiday not a hostel in a third world country.. WOULD RECOMMEND

Great, friendly staff! They were happy to answer our questions and point us in the wrong direction. 10min walk to bus station. Room was basic with lots of character. Fun vibe although we didn’t really hang around. No noise after 10pm.

Cheap place with funny staff. Cleanliness isn’t perfect but with low cost you can handle it. Nice yard with hammocks! During wintertime nights might be a bit cold without a blanket or a sleeping bag. Remember to take your own!

A Guesthouse with a soul ”

At Sookjai you will not only stay in a wonderful chill garden filled with good energy, you will also be surrounded with great people. The staff is amazing, we had such great evenings around the fire. I ended up extending my stay only for the atmosphere and would definitely return. Beds and showers are clean, everything is very basic, more than enough if you're easy going. I hope it stays the same so I can return in the future! Congratulations to you guys for creating such an amazing place!

An okay stay”

I was content with my stay here. The staff were friendly. After a certain time though you have to call him on the phone as there isn't someone at the reception desk. The bed was great - the mattress was firm and comfortable. I have mobile data so I didn't try the Wi-Fi. The private bathroom is great but on the second night the hot water didn't work and I had to shower elsewhere. The staff helped to sort that out. Overall a good enough stay.

Not as expected ”

Our stay here was disappointing and I would not recommend to others. Whilst the rooms are reasonably priced, you can pay the same elsewhere and get much more for your money. The rooms are extremely basic and it was clear that neither the blankets or towels provided where clean. The bed is the hardest bed I’ve slept on and the rooms where extremely cold in the morning/night (we had to ask for extra blankets). The staff were friendly and helpful but unfortunately they weren’t around very often so if you needed anything, you’d be waiting a while. On our final morning we were woken up at 5am with someone banging on all the windows shouting ‘check-out’ for about 15 minutes before they finally stopped and went away ... (not sure what happened here).
