Near the Julie Guest House is JJ Guest House, where we stayed. There are clean rooms with bathrooms and space for hanging your clothes. There is a chill-out area in the hostel, which is right in the heart of Chiang Mai. At first, I went to Julie Guest House thanks to the recommendation of a recognized guide, but the service was so bad that I turned around and found this smaller and cozier place. It's just my humble opinion, and I know that many backpackers would have stayed in Julie and would have been happy, maybe they were having a bad day, but we were not at fault. Here are some photos of the sleeping area.
The hostel Green Tulip House is one of the best in Chiang Mai if you want to sleep in a bedroom, in which case the price is 150 Bhats (just over 3 €) per night, breakfast not included. This is a relatively new hostel and known for its cleanliness, which led it to win an international award in 2008. The Hall of the hostel has a diningroom, living room and internet room with a couple PC's, but they are free of charge to use. Guests can use the wireless Internet (WiFi) for free if you have your own laptop. They also have a garage for motorcycles and good music blaring in the Hall. The price for a double room is 450 Bhats, breakfast not included and the price for a double room 2 Bhats is 850, including breakfast. For that price there are better options in Chiang Mai. The staff is very fun. They have lots of tourist info and good prices for trekking and cookery courses. In short it is a highly recommended place for backpackers when visiting this city in Thailand.
