Banilah is a great place to stay. Here we met the most friendly hostel workers of our whole Thailand trip. They explained us how to get to every sight, as well as to real northern thai food places, ice cream or non-touristy markets. They helped us with a motorbike rental and even send the braces, that we forgot, to our next destination. They have a lot of cute and clean cats in the community room (our favourite was Heng-Heng) and tons of movies. If I ever visit chiang mai again, i'll come back!

Staff are so nice. They introduced to me about Chiang Mai and gave me useful map.
Banilah staff went out of their way to make me feel welcome and to familiarize me with the area. I appreciated their assisting me with dental-appointment transportation; they went above and beyond the call of duty. I will definitely consider staying at Banilah again the next time I'm in Chiang Mai!
