Front desk manager as good as a 5 star hotel, There was nothing she couldn't help us with! It was like having a private travel agent, just incredibly helpful. Breakfast atmosphere was really nice with many choices. You get over all the flaws, like fluorescant lights and tiny bathrooms when you realize how little you are paying for a really decent place. We arrived from a fancy resort and did just fine.
When we arrived it looked nothing like the pictures. I know the place is cheap, and the rooms are clean. But they where rebuilding all of the outside chill and check in area. And we had loads of noise of other guests of stayed under us, screaming shouting and talking.

The location was amazing. Right next to the Tha Pae Gate but they charge extra for A/C. We got bugs in our room at night. It has potential for atmosphere but there weren't many other people staying there. The staff didn't speak really good English so communicating was difficult. Lots of good food in the area. It was tucked away a little so it was quiet. Rooms were basic, shower was good, internet spotty at times but the bed was fairly comfortable for Asian standards.
Simple but Wellington located hostel. Staf hardely speaks english though... Not very helpful for booking tours
We liked Baan Jaja so much, we actually booked another week stay with them. They're a little old-fashioned but the wi-fi is strong, the water bottles and tea are free, the hammocks are comfy, and the staff are all quite friendly. Our sink became clogged during our stay. On our way out the next day, I mentioned it. By the time we arrived back, it was already fixed. Good value. Recommended.
