Finlay House Hostel Chiang Mai: Review

11:26 Amy 0 Comments

I am a last-minute kinda girl.

I booked my New Year's accommodation on December 30th.

So, there was almost NOTHING left on Agoda. Oops. No private rooms, only dorms. A dorm room on New Year's Eve? Urgghh.... But I had no choice. So, throwing all caution to the wind, I chose a brand new dorm room for us that didn't even have any reviews yet.

You know what? It was awesome.

Finlay House on Loi Kroh Road, Chiang Mai was one of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. It was super-clean. There were small personal lockers for each person staying in the room. The beds were comfortable! They had soft white duvets and pillows on! There was a personal soft-glow reading light next to every bed. There was a clean fluffy towel each, drawers to put our stuff in, a big mirror and hooks to hang stuff on. There was powerful aircon. Andy and I stayed in the blue mixed-sex three-bed dorm room, and happily had it to ourselves. The rooms are cute and kitsch and I would totally stay here again!

The staff were really friendly. They had put out massive plates of pad thai, chicken nuggets, salad, fruit, french fries etc to celebrate New Year's Eve. And they gave a sparkly party hat to everyone! It was a really nice start to our New Year celebrations. There's a nail bar in the front part of the hostel, which is kinda weird, but pretty cool? I've never had my nails done before... I wanted to get sparkly ones for New Year, but I spent the time drinking tequila instead, oops.

Room rates on Agoda start at 300 baht per person for a bunk, and 800 for a private room. Female only dorms available.

Did you stay here? What was it like?
