                7 nights at bansabai ”

                We got the superior room, spacious and clean on the 4th floor. The rooftop pool is perfect for sunset photos of the cityscape, and the neighborhood has a lot of food carts and food trucks as well as satellite markets and local food hubs.

                Love The Bansabai!”

                The rooms are clean and comfortable and as it's out of town it's much quieter. But most of all the staff are so friendly and helpful. There is a little 24 hour shop next door which is handy if you arrive late. Would highly recommend The Bansabai.

                More like a hotel than a hostel, great breakfast, clean and comfortable rooms. Located in a quiet street. Friendly helpful staff. Don't expect too much, but it's the best budget place I've stayed at in Thailand.

                Very nice hotel, quiet and clean and a great rooftop pool”

                This place has a really nice pool on the roof that is a perfect place to relax. The Bansabai staff are really a great bunch of people and work very hard at keeping this place beautiful. There is a wonderful evening market walking distance up the street where you can get great salads and fried chicken and other Thai food. It is definitely pretty far from downtown Bangkok but I wasn't interested in going there. This was more of a quick visa run that turned into a nice relaxing vacation! Thanks again Bansabai ;)

                Enjoyed our stay here before flying to another country, it is about 30-40 mins away from Dong Mueng airport. Nice pool and a lovely place to watch the sunset. The room was nice, hot shower, comfortable bed. Very far from khao san road though so it is more for a stop off if you’re using the airport. 711 is just down the road as well. I would recommend staying here.

So +/- points + Good Value +Good Size rooms for the superior range with balcony +Roof Top Pool, good for a small swim and quick dip +Nice staff, who many speak English +Clean and Tidy - Noisy Air Con - Hotel manual is so far out of date stating services they no longer supply, including laundry instructions, coffee shop, times of breakfast and details of the surrounding area. Needs an update urgently. - Wifi did not work for a whole week whilst we were there, only worked on the ground and mezzanine floor. - Location might not be brillent for the inexperienced travel or one that is less adventurous.

                Excellent service, above and beyond helpful staff, clean and cool room, tasty room service

                I spent almost a week at Bansabai and loved almost everything about it. The only complaint I have was the wifi internet only worked about half the time. A few days this was a big deal for a tourist like myself, needing information in English and being unable to find it online. Outside of the unreliable internet, it was wonderful stay. The staff spoke excellent English and helped me get cabs to far away unknown locations. The room was clean and the air conditioning was fantastic. I had a great view of a sunny garden from my large bedroom window. The food was cheap and very tasty, and the minibar prices were surprisingly reasonable. I would definitely stay with Bansabai again, but I would be prepared to find a wifi cafe if internet is a necessity at all times. Thanks to everyone at Bansabai for all the help - I hope to see you again!

                rooftop pool, helpful & friendly service, lovely rooms

                we stayed in bansabai hostel on our third trip to bangkok in just 2 months (it was our hub for visiting elsewhere in south east asia) and we picked it because we wanted to get out of the city and relax by a pool for a few days. we certainly succeeded in getting away from it all...a little too well! bansabai is a lovely budget hotel/hostel with friendly, helpful staff and beautiful, clean rooms. we had a superior room with en suite bathroom and i think it was the nicest room of our entire stay! the rooftop pool was also an excellent way to cool down in bangkok's muggy, humid atmosphere. unfortunately the hotel is miles away from anywhere, even subway stations or the sky train, and there is not much around it, so if you want to go sight-seeing or shopping then you are going to spend any money you have saved on this bargain accommodation on taxis instead. having said that, if you are winding down at the end of a long trip, then it is a lovely spot. and the breakfast which is included is absolutely fastantic: cooked breakfast with juice and a hot drink, with organic salad from the hotel's own rooftop garden.

The roof was large and comfortable, best pillows i've slept on in months! The rooftop pool and garden was very impressive and the large hydroponic garden was one of the most impressive i have seen. The hotel makes an emphasis on environmental sustainability and offers a full range of recycling options. The local area is very nice, with several markets and shops nearby. They were more than willing to arrange transport for us to the train station the next morning. A must for any Eco-conscious traveller!
