We only stayed in Bangkok for two nights and didn't spend much time in the guesthouse. It seems like a nice place and the owner was very friendly, but also seemed a little bit distracted sometimes. We arrived quite late and didn't actually feel that much welcome...
The good thing is that the guesthouse is located in a more authentic part of Bangkok and there are some really nice street kitchens very near by. The bad thing is that it can be quite hard to find and is not in walking distance to the center. Especially when you are only in Bangkok for a few days and don't have so much time to get used to the train/metro system. We got lost several times.
There is no cafe or restaurant to hang out in, but it seemed like some people were still having a good time, drinking beer in the "common area". However this also meant that there was a lot of noise until early in the morning.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- U-baan means " stay home" in Thai. We would love all the traveller who stay in our hostel feels like home. We are located in one of the oldest resident area called " Wong Wain Yai". 5 mins walking distant form BTS Wong Wain Yai (silom line). You could experience an original local Thai lifestyle with our neighborhood. ... more less
