“Bangkok's best!!!”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

When you arrive in Bangkok, don't go anywhere else but here. U-Baan is located far away from the touristy and smelly Kao San (believe me - that's very good!), just 5min walk from BTS station in a true Thai area - with less noise but more real street life. You can easily find tasty and cheap food just around the corner plus one super bonus - one of the TOP 10 street food in Bangkok is located near U-Baan. You have to wait for the food more than an hour - but it's SOOOOO worth it! A must for all seafood lovers.
And the greatest treasure of U-Baan - it's owner - Joy. With her never ending enthusiasm, energy and ideas she will guide you through thousands of different sights, one-day trips, markets, food stalls, ect. in BKK. She is nice and helpful beyond words.
Absolutely recommended!

Stayed January 2012, traveled as a couple

I think the name of the manager/owner says it all for this guesthouse... pure "Joy" It's located far away from all the touristic mayhem of Kao San, but only 5minutes walking from the BTS On our second day Joy organized a Thai barbecue in the guesthouse witch allowed us to get all sorts of inside information of Bangkok and also to get to know the other guest of the hostel. After the barbecue we went exploring the Bangkok night life and it wasn't pretty! :-) Highly recommend the place!!!

Rooms are clean and cheaper then on Kao San

Free WiFi!
