    Absolutely wonderful experience here, family owned. It’s run by a couple and they’ve got 3 young boys that are very sweet. The rooms and the rest of the facility is kept clean. The man is very helpful and has great advice on things to see and places to eat. The beds are very comfortable and the breakfast is delicious. The only negative is there’s no air conditioning, other than that, this is one of the best hostels I’ve had the pleasure of staying at in Thailand.

    Our stay at Bankaikow was amazing. The staff was the highlight. He was so helpful, making sure we were comfortable with the room, bathrooms, and the area. He arranged motorbike rental for us to go to erawan waterfalls and his wife cooked the most amazing breakfast. He went above and beyond with everything. It was incredibly clean, close to markets and an easy Journey to the museums/bridge. I highly recommend you stay here and talk with the wonderful staff. I hope to return!

    This is one of the finest establishments in Southeast Asia I’ve had the pleasure to visit. Clean, quiet, great location. The owner is an angel. Like a real angel. He will do whatever he can to make you feel at home. If you go to Kanchanaburi you would be an utterly lackless and odious fool not to stay at Bankaikow.

    The host went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of. He was super friendly and welcoming. He made us breakfast and helped us find parking and with our luggage. The bedroom was very simple and clean. Unfortunately the hostel is on a busy road so the traffic is quite loud if you’re sensitive to this type of noise. There are lots of local markets in the area.

    The host/proprietor of Bankaikow is very kind and helpful. The hostel is located in a location that is very convenient to the bus station and not too far of a walk from the sites of Kanchanaburi itself, including wats and war cemeteries. The only things that could have been improved were having air conditioning, although the fan in our room worked well, and the hostel is on a busy street, so the traffic was a little bit noisey. However being on the main road also made the hostel easy to access.

    I have never experienced such warm hospitality in a guest house. The owners are people who go above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable and that we got the most of Kanchanaburi. I can't stress enough how amazing they are. It is a little out of the way, which is really no problem if you're on bikes or you don't mind walking. It's definitely worth it! Our stay at Bankaikou was short but one of the warmest memories we will keep of Thailand. Thank you so much!

    Staff very friendly and happy to help with any request. Would highly recommend. It is a short walk from the bus station, so is ideal for trips to Erawan and connecting journeys

    Great place to stay, very good value for your money, clean and safe. The owner was very kind to me and my girlfriend. He gave us a lot of excellent information about things to do in town. The owner also helped us to arrange a tour guide. I would definitely stay here again. The location of the hostel was hard to find if your new to this town.

    Tor is a very helpful host. He goes out of his way to ensure my safety and comfort. Breakfast is one of the best at any hostel I've stayed. Private rooms are large, bathroom is a bit larger than the norm as well. No laundry on site but there is one 2 blocks away.
