The owner - young lady - was the only Thai person I understood speaking English :) (In all the other cases they had such a strong Thai accent that it was really difficult to understand anything or did not speak English at all). Enthusiastic, helpfull person :) The place is 5 min walk to SkyTrain station.

Awesome place. In the middle of a Bangkok neighborhood. Close to public transit and the local market. Joy, the owner is an awesome lady. Very friendly and helpful, and knows everything about the tourist attractions in the city. She really helped me to get to my flight when I was late.

Joy goes out of her way to help her guests and its a real pleasure staying at U Baan guesthouse. It's very close to the Wongwian Yai BTS station and commuting is thus easy.

We were very happy with the stay in this hostel. Joy, the owner, was very helpful with any help that we need during our trip. It makes our trip way much easier. The place is very clean and it is always securely locked. Location is satisfactory as it is located very near to a BTS station. Overall, i would definitely recommend this hostel.

A little out of the way, but still pretty convenient. It's right next to a BTS stop and a bus stop. Joy is super helpful, and saved me some time and money with her advice. Overall, one of the better hostels I've stayed at.

Very good hostel located in a local area. I am used to stay there and will go back to U-BAAN for sure !!! If you are looking for a place a bit away from crazy touristy places, U-BAAN is the perfect place.

Joy is very great! The hostel lacks a bit atmosphere though, but is overall a good deal. Would recommend it!

This is a great little hostel found in the local area of Bangkok giving you a real flavour of local life and best of all, you are not hastled by the locals for trips etc. it is also just around the corner from the sky train and another train station so is a good base to get around. Overall, the part that made this hostel worth staying at was the owner, Joy, who had a wealth of knowledge about the area and was always happy to help out with a smile. She even helped us with a flight. Thanks, Joy.

Great place to stay. Joy, the owner is very nice and extremely helpful. I would definitely stay here again. However, the location is a bit away thus requires a BTS (metro-line) to get to the main touristy areas. But I preferred it that way.. away from the main hustle-bustle. Great cheap places to eat around and was interesting to actually live in a more Thai area.

I spend 3days there with my boyfriend and for us it was perfect.confortable rooms, the personal helps you with yours tours in bangkok and give you all information you need, and for us the location was good..close to sky train (5min), the river(15 min,chao praya river express), by bus in 10min to wat pho y grand palace...2seven eleven in 2minutes...in my opinion better than kao san road wich is close to city centr but so far for the rest of bangkok (Siam, silom, chatuchark park, railway station)

As anyone can read from the slew of reviews, this is a great place to stay in Bangkok! The main reason of which is Joy, her insights into what, and how to experience Thailand are excellent advice. The hostel is everything one would need or look for when wanting to stay in Bangkok...so it's easy just stay there!

Joy is amazing and really makes you feel welcome. This place is like a breathe of fresh air away from Khosan Road. Close to the Sky rail and right in the middle of local life. This is where you get a feel for what life in Bangkok is really like :-) Definitely staying here next time in Bangkok

Location was good depending on your expectations. Not the best area for a first time traveller.
