- location is not really close to the bus terminal. better take tuktuk if you walk under the sun. + no convenience store nearby - no hairdryer at the bathroom, needa borrow from reception (night shift staff is nice) to give me hairdryer and charger - bathroom locates at the room can be noisy if roommates shower at late night and in the early morning. better use the common washroom instead.

Connect Hostel is really strategically located. You can use songthaew to go around Chiang Rai. They also helped me hire scooter for 200 Baht a day, the gas station is really near the hostel. The staffs are really friendly. I arrived in Chiang Rai on 9 AM and they let me early check in. Would recommend to anyone!

Upon entering, you may think this is a cafe, or a designer showroom. But you've arrived at one of the best hostel I've stayed yet! Staff are very friendly, rooms are well equipped (privacy curtains, bag locker, coin washing machine/dryer), and breakfast that's borderline gourmet for a hostel! Located somewhere in the middle of Central Plaza and Chiang Rai city centre, not too difficult to go either way. Worth another​ stay for sure. :3

Perfect choice for backpackers to traveling in Chiang Rai. You can stay here for whenever, how long as you want. Room and each toilet/bathroom(separated) are spacious, well maintained. There are lockers and Public bathrooms you can use too. Also has washing machines for 20B, there is some places that could dry clothes in the sunshine. If you need any help or want to book a tour or transportaion service, staffs helping you very well. Common area is cozy and convenient. All the room types are breakfast included, it's quite simple but they provide fruits and boiled eggs so I liked it very much.

This hostel is in a great location, it’s a short walk to the night bizarre and main shopping centre. The staff were very friendly, accommodating and extremely helpful! The beds were very comfortable and the room was spacious and very clean. Only minor downside was that there were a few ants in the room where we had food left in our bags. Overall it was a lovely hostel and I would definitely stay again :)
