The place is nice and cozy, not in the center of tourists area, which is good. I like the traditional market around the hostel. If you want to see how real Thai people live, this is the place for you.

Really good stay at this guesthouse. The rooms are nice and clean, basic but with some nice features which make them feel a bit more special. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The cats were really cute in the cat cafe too! It’s a little noisy in the morning due to the school nearby and cars going by but it didn’t bother me too much. They could be a little more environmentally friendly by not replacing the plastic wrapped soap in the bathroom every day, I hadn’t used it all up! But all in all a really nice stay.

We loved our stay at Banilah! We had a wonderful welcome from the lovely staff, despite arriving early morning before they had opened. We were given a map and they talked through all the recommended places to visit and eat in Chiang Mai which was super helpful! Throughout our stay they were always around to answer any questions and would go out of their way to help us (helping to print our boarding passes, booking taxis, taking our laundry). They recommended a great app called Grab (like uber) which we hadn't heard of but used the whole time we were in Chiang Mai as it was much cheaper than the normal taxis. The rooms are basic but are cleaned & topped up with drinking water daily and have everything you will need. The location was great for us as you could walk into the old town in about 10-15 minutes but there was plenty of places to eat within a few minutes walk from Banilah. 10/10... the friendly staff made our stay so great. Could not have asked for any more!

Did the no AC room bc it was a “special” 300 baht vs 550 baht for AC. Wouldn’t be that bad except the only option the gave me was room 1, bottom corner near road. Barking dog/weird noise/old lady yelling at all weird hours. Large roach in bathroom. Lots of cracks so mosquitos get in. All concrete, not seeing the renovations they mentioned. It’s not the worst place I’ve been to, but these reviews hype it up too much. I think it should have been a bit cheaper. Office/main quarters closed 8pm-8am. Owner makes a great iced late. There are cats all over the inside lounge on leashes. Not everyone’s thing, just be aware. They are mostly nice. But yeah, I asked to see more rooms by the first employee I found and was just thrown into the worst one and told it was the special rate, even though I could find the same thing online. Granted, my fault for only knowing English. The thing is, it’s become preferred to do things online versus in person with cash I guesthouses, which baffles me. The redeeming factor in this experience is that the owner showed up with several maps and GREAT info and recommendations. I hate to give a bad review bc the money I spent on the room was worth her maps. But still, the pictures others are posting on here do not tell the whole story.
