This is definitely the best value for money place in Chang Mai. The place is clean, the owners are super friendly and the location is very very central. I paid 200 baht for a twin fan room with ensuite and hot water. All other places are charging approx 150 more for the same facilities.

I also had to use the printer facilities at their new guesthouse.. Kavel 2. This placed looked really nice and had a younger vibe to it... I think the rooms there were about 50 baht extra a night because its newer.

Without hesitation would stay here again.

We stayed here for four nights during our travels in Thailand and loved it. The couple that run it are amazing and so friendly and helpful. They helped us arrange all of our trips as well as our onward travel in Laos, but were never pushy about selling us things. The room was basic but clean, spacious, always had hot water and most rooms seemed to have views over the street (ours did) as opposed to the view of a brick wall that we all too often seem to get in budget hostels!

The location is good (in the heart of the 'old town') and on the same street as a nice little cafe where we had breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks at various times and near to a choice of cookery schools.

The range of activiities on offer in Chiang Mai is amazing. We did elephant riding and Thai cooking, but could have stayed for another week to do more!

My boyfriend and I spent 5days at Kavil and were really impressed!

Lily the owner and her beautiful little dog Habu was really really friendly and made us feel more than welcome!

Location was great, in the main square and walking distance from everything you need!!

Right next to Baan Thai cooking school and an AMAZING restaurant called Peppermint!

I would really recommend staying here to anyone, such a nice place!!

Such a great and cheap guesthouse! My friend and I were dyin to stay here after reading the reviews and unfortunately it was full when we arrived. We had to stay down the street for our first night in Chiang Mai but luckily snagged a room here at the kavil on day two. By far an upgrade from Your House and cheaper! Such a bang for yOur buck. 250 a night for two beds, a fan and a private bathroom. The lady is super sweet. Just don't book a day trip through her, very overpriced!! We booked the exact same excursion down the street for 400 baht less! My words of wisdom: sign up for baan Thai cookery school across the street...totally worth it!

This guesthouse is just perfect! The rooms are basic, BUT very cheap and really clean. So really good value for your money! Also location is great, central within old city, good restaurants nearby. Arrange your daytrips via the guesthouse, since you get discount. Also, the owners are really friendly and make you feel like home.
Try their breakfast as well, the best i had in Thailand!
