First stop in SEA, basic but clean facilities and incredibly helpful owner (Joy), with a great sense of humour too! She gives great advice on where to go, places to eat, how much to expect to pay for things. Good location near SkyTrain. Cute and friendly cat too (maybe not for those with cat allergies).

We stayed at Joy's place twice during our trip to Thailand and the second time it felt just like coming home! Joy is an effortlessly brilliant host who let us wash two huge bags of laundry literally as soon as we arrived (for no extra cost) and use her kettle and fridge to make endless cups of tea during our...

I stayed for 2 nights here, and there was three of us, we shared the triple dorm like room. The room was quite small, but clean and cosy. The host, Joy is great, speaks exceptional English and provides great knowledge of Thailand. The location gives you more of a 'proper Thai feel' as the hostel is surrounded by local street... More

I had a great time. Perfect starting hostel for SE Asia. The owner Joy is a hoot. She gave me really great travel advise and I loved chilling on the roof top with a beer looking at this crazy city at night or watching the cat trying to sneak into an air conditioned room. The location is brilliant for a... More

Thank you Joy for having us. You made us feel extremely welcome having just arrived in bangkok. The beds are typical of bangkok and for the price we could not argue! Its easy to find and very quiet at night! We will see you again.

Joy is an absolutely wonderful host and makes sure that she does everything in her power to ensure a good stay. I have been in and out of Bangkok for the last few months and always return here. Luggage storage is good, dorms are standard and clean, location is conveniently next to BTS and it has a homey atmosphere where... More

I spent four nights in a double private room at the end of May. The room was clean and the air con worked well. The ground floor served as a parlor - a nice spot to chat with other travelers. The hostel is in a Bangkok suburb and is a five minute walk from the sky train. 7-11 and an... More

I love animals and this hostel has one resident cat that just welcomed me right in. She showed me the way to my room, pawed the door while I was fussing with the key, and jumped right into my bed as soon as I've opened the door. Joy is very helpful, she will give you travel and shopping advise. She... More

She is so welcoming and easy going that you feel right at home.Plus Joy knows everything there is to know about Bangkok: where to eat,shop,which museums,which stop and how much the ticket costs! Additionally,as this is her home,she takes really good care of... More

U Baan is a decent place to stay in Bangkok. It is fairly clean and the social atmosphere is good. The rooms are of average size but the beds are clean and comfortable and the rooms come with an attached bathroom. Joy, the owner is a friendly lady and will help you in planning out your day in Bangkok. Beware... More
