“Clean & nice, just what we wanted.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Location about 10 mins walk from Khao Saan Road where most bars are and just far enough to be quiet. Surrounded by other hostels and small shop.
Staff friendly and keen to help with anything you need. Receptionist speaks good english. She will help you with trips, bookings and direcrions.
Rooms are basic and the beds comfortable. The allow you to use a fridge in the main area if you need.
The whole place is clean and we did not see any bugs.
The breakfast they offer is good. You get 2 toast with pictures cook on it. 2 eggs, 2 sausage and a tea or coffee and matmalade. We tried to book more nights but could not get space.
I have recomended this to others I know already.

My partner and I loved every minute spent here over our three night stay. The people are friendly and very helpful in directing us the right way to markets and buses. Rooms were cosy and clean and bathrooms were great. Location was great and close to markets and transport. Overall a great stay. Would definitely stay again on a return trip.

The sign out the front reads "Clean, Cheap and Cozy" and our three days at Khaosan Baan Thai were exactly that. The rooms and bathrooms were immaculate, as were the common rooms. This was all the more impressive due to the $AUD 20 price tag. The most impressive thing however was the service. The manager was an absolute sweetheart, returning the money we had paid for breakfast, explaining that it was covered in our room charge. She made phone calls and gave us a tonne of great advice re. our stay. I would definitely recommend Khaosan Baan Thai, a wonderful group of people.

Room Tip: We staid in an air-conditioned room, for a little extra it was well worth it

Khaosan Baan Thai was the best possible introduction to Thailand. Despite my very late arrival, the wonderful manager Sung Sung made me feel like she was happy to see me and showed me to literally the cleanest room I've seen in my entire life. It was very simple, but amazingly (on a 35 C/ 95 F day) cool, even though it only has a fan and no airconditioning (this was my choice.) The common areas were comfortable and free internet (on computers) was fast. Sung Sung provided helpful advice more times than I could count and even let me call a local friend on her phone a couple of times for no charge.

The location is initially a little tough to find, but once you do, you'll appreciate that it's close to a main road (and Khaosan Road if you're into that stuff) but not on it, which is why it's so quiet. I'd happily stay there again and hope I get the chance.

Stayed here for 2 nights on 24th & 25th Jan 2013, me and my partner are backpacking so looked for cheapest place that had decent reviews. Took us a good while to find, tuk tuk driver we showed address to took us to a main road nearby when we showed him the email with the Thai address on, when we said this isn't the place, he took us to Khaosan road and we got off there and asked staff in local shops as we walked. Only 10min max from Khaosan road (the tourists road) and at the end of a street off the main road was Khaosan Baan Thai. It's close to another hostel called Sam Sen San which has a signpost on the main road.
Once in, the very friendly staff who spoke good English showed us to our room. Very clean, two good thick mattresses on floor, nice decor including hand painted art on wood (which you can buy) and most importantly 2 good powerful fans! We stayed in room 202, as pictured. The original teak floor is lovely and the shared bathroom/ shower room always clean.
Overall, great place, would definitely stay again. Tried to book another night but they were full, so definitely book in advance. We booked through hostel bookers for about £5 per night.

Been travelling for 5 months with my girlfriend, staying in cheap places. This guesthouse is one of the few that stands out. A 10 minute walk from the Khaosan Road, and with a much higher standard of accommodation. Clean room and nice host who made us feel welcome. We went into a few guesthouses on Khaosan Road and they were awful in comparison. Great value for the price. If you are looking for cheap and cheerful in Bangkok, this place is the one!

A great place to stay. It was the second time for me, and will come back again. Very friendly staff, especially the manager Sung Sung, always ready to help and make you feel at home. Cozy and very clean rooms, painted with bright colours and charming decorations. The common bathrooms with hot shower are always clean and never had to queue. The price is convenient and includes breakfast in a little private courtyard. Excellent location, quiet yet close to the famous Khaosan road and within walking distance to places of interest. I can definitely recommend Khaosan Baan Thai Guesthouse.
