We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at this hostel. The room bordered on hotel standard with particular care towards the environment. But what made this stay so great, was the staff. They were kind, helpful and extremely attentive. They explained the town and the sights upon arrival, even marking/highlighting it all on a map they gave us. When we decided... More

Never before did I have such a cosy welcoming experience as thing in MY long backpacker/hostel life! We were greeted in a both efficient and cosy way, given tuns of info on the town's interesting spots and how to get there. The main hall, though small, is full of beautiful cats wandering around. All staff, mostly women-ran business, are amazingly... More

Had a fantastic stay here at Banilah, the staff are great so friendly and very helpful if your unorganised like us with things to see, do and eat. Think people are giving the location a hard time because it is surrounded by shops and restaurants and only a 30 Bart ride to pretty much anywhere. The lobby/cat cafe is so... More

I stayed here more than 10 nights. I went to two trips and returned here. The owner and the stuff are very kind and helpful and all of them speak very good English. When you arrive they sit with you for 15+ minutes with a map on hand and explain you in detail the things you should do to do... More

Our taxi had lots of trouble finding out the hotel so we arrived past 8PM, when the reception is usually closed. However the girls at the reception stayed on the phone with our taxi to guide him through the small streets,... More

Whenever I think about this place, the smell of big fat lovely cats will come to hit my nose. There are many cats serving you, the cat lovers LOL. This small boutique hotel is very suitable for the cat lovers. Besides that, the hotel is located near a food center and a fresh market. So you don't have to be... More
