Joy is very nice, has a good sense of humour. Facilities are good, clean shower and even the option to have a warm shower. My bed was good and the room had a good airco :) Thanks Joy, and I'll try to come back at the end of my trip!

Location while not in the city centre nevertheless has a Skytrain station nearby which makes getting into the city fast and convenirnt. Many food stalls along the way to the hostel and a supermarket nearby. The owner is a cheerful and helpful lady with lots of advice and recommendations for newcomers to Bangkok.

Nice hostel right at the local markets. A bit tricky to find but it was clean. Right at the skytrain station. Joy is a good helpful host, she defintely tells you what to do! No matter if you want to do it or not ;D But in a good way ;)

U-baan hostel is simple and clean. There's attached bathroom with hot shower, but i doubt you'll need it in such a hot weather. Joy cleans the bathroom everyday so it's clean. The aircond isn't cold enough and it's making subtle noice when it's working. The noice of passing vehicles can be heard from the room. Despite these shortcomings, it is value for the money paid as the hostel is just 5-minute walking distance from the BTS station. Wifi working great. Joy is friendly.

Hostel is in a nice quiet area, away from the main tourist places. Joy is amazing, really friendly and full of ideas and suggestions! Really nice atmosphere here, recommend highly!

U-baan felt as coming home. Joy is the nicest person and knows every corner of Bangkok! She also gave us great tips about vegetarian and vegan places. The common area is simple, but you don't need any more. Relaxed atmosophere, good place to meet other people. Not near the center, but big and local market very closeby and bts station just 10 minutes walk.

Best place in Bangkok to meet people because Joy creates such a lovely atmosphere for people to mingle and chat with each other. Among the funnest hostels I've stayed at. My room was small and basic yet clean, but it doesn't matter because I spent way more time in the communal areas than in my room.

If you are coming to Bangkok then you need to stay with Joy at U-Bann. This was a great way to start out 3 month SE Asia adventure. Joy welcomed us immediately and made us feel at home. Joy is an incredible person, she was constantly around, chatting, sharing honest insight and making sure that we were all well cared for. We met some incredible people at U-Bann (shout out to the Canadian Delegation) and that is largely in part to the atmosphere that Joy facilitates. We'll definitely be back!

Lovely hostel, right by the BTS. Lovely host who helped us with trips down south and where to go during the day and night time. Definitely recommend to anyone, all groups and ages. Will visit again when next in Bangkok

i really dont need to say much because all the other reviews say the samething, Joy is amazing and is the most helpful person and she runs the entire place by her self. rooms are super clean, AC, private baths if you want a private room. Bangkok is big so you pretty much need a taxi or tuk tuk to get anywhere but you can walk to the docks to get a croos the river, the only bad thing is that Joy is so helpful that its really hard to find her sometimes if you need something.

U-Baan is an incredible guesthouse mainly due to the owner Joy. She knows a lot about the city and can help you a lot + she's fun to talk with. The location is close to a skytrain station and the distance allows for a reasonably cheap taxi into the city.

Owner was very nice and greeted us at the door when we arrived, late at night. Accommodation was nice, although we didn't spend enough time to really get a good feel for everything.
