The rooms are basic but clean with aircondition and the wifi works very well. Stayed their 4 nights with my girlfriend and we were both very happy with the host Joy, whom does everything she can to make it a memorable stay. Its vest of the river, which means that you are closer to the ''real'' thai experience markets and...

This is just so relaxed and homey you just feel like staying forever. Joy is the best, always so cheerful and is the lady who owns it, cleans it, helps you in every possible way, socialises with you in the downstairs lounge in the evenings, organises your bus, flight,train and taxi fares AND knows the cheapest way to do everything....

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...

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.

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...
