Room is basic but you get what you pay for. Very affordable, strong WiFi, and conveniently close to a lot of shops. Nearest train station is also within walking distance. Worth checking out is the Rachana noodle house that's just 3 minutes away by foot from this hostel. Overall, it's really Joy, the kind, friendly, and knowledgeable owner, who makes... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. The hostel owner is very nice. The rooms are clean, but very basic. Beds were surprisingly comfortable. Location is 10 minutes walk from the nearest skytrain station. We didn't regret staying here, but I feel you can get more for the price in other places.

We had a great stay at joy's, very much nice and helpfully host. We hope we did not leave in too much of a mess and want to deeply apologise for any inconvenience caused. Thank you for your great hospitality and advice on Bangkok and it's attractions. Maybe one sees each other again. Yours, T+L

The hostel is lovely! And joy is brilliant, very good english and so so helpful when you are stuck in a rut! Bit of a hard place to find we found it easier going to the skytrain station then the train station to find your way around, will definitely stay again when i return to bangkok!

I have stayed at U Baan 4 times in the last 6 months and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Bangkok. It's a 5 minute walk from the BTS with great local food and 7/11's within 2 minutes of the hostel. The air con is great and the Wi-Fi is really fast. There is a small but nice common area downstairs... More

We found the hostel hard to find from the map and a few other backpackers said they struggled as well, but once we got there the host Joy welcomed us and was very friendly and helpful. There is a nice little communal area downstairs and our room was spacious, comfy and good air con. The wifi is very fast as... More

U-Baan is our favourite of all guesthouses we've stayed in our travels. Stayed there three times and will absolutely stay there next time we're in lovely Bangkok. The double rooms are perfectly clean and have all you need. Wifi extends even to the fourth floor. So comfortable, would gladly just live in one of the rooms for ages :D Location... More

After the experience I had with a hostel in Siem Reap I wasn't expecting too much, as I went here on a whim with a traveler met along the way from Siem Reap. Granted... More

This hostel is unlike any guesthouse we've come across during our time in Asia. The rooms are very clean and functional, but nothing special. It is Joy, the owner, who makes the place so special! She will answer any question and gives good advice on where to eat or how to get around.The common area is really cosy and Joy... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
U-baan means " stay home" in Thai. We would love all the traveller who stay in our hostel feels like home. We are located in one of the oldest resident area called " Wong Wain Yai". 5 mins walking distant form BTS Wong Wain Yai (silom line). You could experience an original local Thai lifestyle with our neighborhood. ... more   less
