“The Must-stay Guesthouse”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

The area is pretty quite and surrounded by the local ambience. Pretty close to the central area of Bangkok and it has anything you can wish for in a guesthouse. Great hosts and great facilities. Simply amazing.

The owners were amazing. The guest house isn't near major tourist sites but it is located near the BTS. I enjoyed it better because you get to see another side of Bangkok that most don't. Next time I am in Bangkok I will stay here for sure.

Close to local people, but also close to BTS sky train and main road where you can find taxis and tuk-tuks. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. The grounds are large and fun and have perks like a ping-pong table, lounge chair and big TVs. Wifi works well everywhere!

If you are looking for a clean and friendly place that is close to the bts but away from sleaze and hustle and bustle you cannot beat this place. Run by a nice couple and really rather elegant inside, it is ideal.
Has a TV, lockers, table tennis ball and some curious blue eyed cats.

Great breakfast and a good place to meet people.

This guesthouse is owned by a young French-Thai couple in an area where mostly Thai people are living. When I was there, Jaa’s husband was on holiday in France so I did not have the chance to meet him. But Jaa and her daughter are such nice people and very helpful. Jaa showed me on a map where to go for the main attractions, how to get there, and the normal price I should pay for a motorcycle or a tuk-tuk, etc. In addition, she also took me to a shopping mall (a must see – totally different from Europe), to a shop/restaurant with amazing cakes, to the night market, to the weekend market (which was huge and amazing), to one of the skybars and to Bangkok’s best parties/clubs (where only Thai people are going). I had to leave Bangkok early in the morning. Therefore, Jaa booked me a taxi-meter the night before to make sure that I will be on time at the airport.

Location: the perfect location. It is situated around 10 minutes walking from the BTS (skytrain). Sathorn/central pier (boat) is also very close (one BTS stop). Instead of walking to the BTS or the boat, you can also take a motorcycle (you have plenty of them 1 minute walk from the guesthouse). Around the guesthouse, you have restaurants (which are very good, very cheap and only with local people) and small shops where you can buy drinks. The guesthouse is situated in a safe and quiet area.

The room and facilities: I was staying in a private room. The room was very clean as well as the bathroom (with warm water) and the toilets. There is also a common kitchen with a fridge where you can put your stuff. And if needed, there is a washing machine.

Price: the price is very low; good value for your money!

I stayed at Baan Sathorn for 3 nights and I had such an amazing time there. I was travelling alone and this guesthouse was good for human contacts. The garden and common areas are great and you can easily meet people. I was really feeling at home. If you are thinking about travelling to Bangkok, I would definitely recommend you to stay at Baan Sathorn. I stayed at different guesthouses/hostels in Bangkok and Thailand but Baan Sathorn was definitely the best one. I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Reviewed 6 October 2013

I stayed at this lovely guesthouse for 6 nights recently. It is a little way from the nearest BTS (Surasak), but I always found the 15 minute walk interesting and pleasant. The guesthouse is located in what feels like a fairly traditional Thai neighbourhood with plenty of street food options and a convenience store nearby. It is right next to a big temple called Wat Prok which I unfortunately never got round to visiting. But the area generally has a nice atmosphere and feels safe to walk around at night. It's very quiet despite being so close to the busy, skyscraper filled Sathorn road. The owners are incredibly warm and welcoming and really make you feel at home. There is a large kitchen which guests are free to use, plus a lounge area with a TV. If you are looking for a comfortable and quiet place to stay in the Sathorn area, I would definitely recommend Baan Sathorn Backpacker Guesthouse.

Baan Sathorn is a backbackers guest house, that only opened in 2013 and that is run by an extremely friendly french and thai couple. The two are incredibly and helpful when it comes to finding your way trough crazy Bangkok and are simply nice and interesting people to chat with. All facilities are brand new and nicely decorated. The guest house offers a wonderful large yard where you can escape Bangkoks busy streets and relax. This is what I call "value for money" ;) To sum it up: I can absolutely recommend anybody to stay in this place and I personally hope to come back soon!
