            A perfect choice for a single traveler! ”

            Location, Interior Design, Cleanness

            This is a great news for a single traveler who wants to stay in Nimmanhemin area with all the convenience accessible from local street fares, nearby temples, organic health stores, nail/spa shops, trendy cafes and a variety of restaurants to the brand-new mega shopping mall 'Maya' all within a walking distance. For me, Nimmanhemin is the best area to base in to enjoy all levels of Chiang Mai goodness and Baanmek is the perfect place to explore it from. I am not new to Chiang Mai and I have experienced quite a few accommodation options so far, so I can tell you why Baanmek stands out for single travelers. First of all, its location. It is conveniently located in the very center of Nimmanhemin but fortunately is not around bars that play a loud music until after midnight, which happened to me once ;) So it ensures you a good night's sleep. Speaking of which, Baanmek's bedding is a great plus. It is not that of a cheap hostel's, but of a decent hotel quality. And the common bathroom is spotlessly clean and well maintained. Second of all, community feeling. I am a single traveler, and like to interact with other fellow travelers, but while keeping my space. What suits me about Baanmek is that you get your own tiny room where one bed and a small lamp stand fit, but on the ground floor, there is a breakfast restaurant (I heard that they are going to open it for a cafe soon too) where you can just sit, and peacefully start a conversation with other guests who most probably are there alone, too. I like the fact that I get to have my space separated by a Japanese-style sliding door and still have a chance to meet with other people in an open place. Some people might feel the room is too small but it suited me just fine. Imagine a small Japanese zen monk room. So, all in all, I strongly recommend Baanmek for any single traveler or even a pair, who may have a light pocket but wants to be in a safe and clean place created with a nice touch of design.

            I live in Melbourne and this is my first time in last 15 years to visit Chaingmai. Baanmek hostel has really great location that you can feel Chaingmai experience by only just walking to every galleries and cafe around Nimman. Also only 100 meters away from the best cafe and gallery which is called SS1254372 cafe. If you love Melbourne brunch there is worth to visit.

            Not bad”

            Baanmek is a neat hostel. If you are looking for a place to stay that's cheaper than a hotel but nicer than a dorm style hostel, this is your go-to place. It is super clean and the staff members are very friendly. The only drawback is the noise from fellow travelers. Although you get your own private room, it is technically not a ROOM, it's more like a dorm compatibilized with wooden screens. So it is NOT sound proof, be aware of this. We had a guy snoring like an earthquake for the first two nights, and on my third night, a person decided to turn on the hallway lights at 4.40 am to blow her nose loud like firing a cannon. So yeah, just bear in mind that there's always a percentage of travelers who are not conscious enough about their surroundings. Anyways, overall it was a good stay.

            Baan Mek is for Location and Value for Money”

            Stylish hostel in the centre of Nimman where you can find anything and easy to commute around Chiang Mai. Not normal to find a hostel which provide you a single room for this price. Do not expect a high end standard but trust me you will be more than satisfied with all the penny you pay.

            Perfect for solo traveller!!!”

            Pro: This place is perfect for solo traveller! With the same price as other hostels, you get small but private unit of your own. Although the wall does not block sounds from outside, the hostel is relatively quiet compared to other hostels. Shared facilities like bathrooms and common area are clean and well maintained. Place for good rest really. Con: None for me. But if you want a high social hostel, this might not be the place for you.

            My favorite place in Chiang Mai”

            I've stayed at 7 or 8 different places in Chiang Mai and this is by far my favorite. Love the wooden, minimalist, Japanese style private rooms. Everything is very clean, the staff is friendly, internet works well, and the place is just really pleasant to be in. Highly recommended!

            Owners, vibe, idea

            The owners were waiting at night until I was arriving from the airport. Right after a big group went to a nice restaurant together. It was the perfect start to my stay in Chiang Mai. I had excellent sleep and looking forward to come back.

            Value on a budget!”

            It would be one of my favourite budget hostel in Chiangmai so far in terms of location, price and cleanliness. It's so easy to get around Nimman's area if you're not rental a car since there're no parking space. Only 2 things that made me inconvenience are front door security that not lock properly sometimes and another is when I need to dry my hair, I have to go down to a basement floor since we have to keep low voice between 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. (although some ppl break the rule in 1 night that I stay if you are sensitive with a little noise before sleep, pls skip this place) but it acceptable for me and recommend for solo traveler.

            Just a few quiet nights”

            quiet, clean, great location

            Spent 2 nights at the Baanmek Hostel. Very clean, very quiet both inside and outside even though there were a few clubs nearby and everything looked brand new. I'd give it a 5 star rating but at night, there didn't seem to be any staff. Even at 8am, no one was there for checkout so I just left the key on the desk. Otherwise, a great place to stay, especially if traveling alone.

            Lovely hand made hostel”

            The owners, own space and location

            The hostel owners have created this unique space by hand. There is a lot of love. You can feel it as you walk down the little path with greenery either side leading to the entrance. The owners are lovely and so welcoming! Really special little place. Great option for budget traveller who wants a little space (7msq) of their own. Japanese esq paper doors shut of your bed from the hall. No windows and if you keep your door shut the aircon is not overly effective. Those would be my only issues. I didn't have breakfast included but I saw them being made and they looked delicious. So if you like the area (hipster, creative, student hangout) and are on a budget but don't want a dorm bed this is the place for you!

            Everything good but noise”

            The room is good, new and clean. Not far from Nimman road that you can looking for shops, cafe and malls by walk.

            Many noise all day and night! I'm an unlucky person who got the room attached the toilet and bathroom. Cause people each room go to toilet difference times I can heard all of these room activities - they brush their teeth, take a shower, wash their face and use flush toilet. HEARD ANYTHING CAUSE OF THE ROOM WALLS ARE THIN WOOD NOT CEMENT/CONCRETE - IT CAN NOT KEEP ANY NOISE. you will heard anything from other room and feet steps noise from staircase. This is the worst thing which I agree with other reviews that the hostel owner should know and solve it.

            located in the famous lifely Nimman road, many bars, restaurant, shops and cafe with cool art & chic design, nightlife just few walking around and also street food + 24h coffeeshop+ convinientstores can serve your long night there! For the hostel, it's a little minimalist private room with a bit japanese look, there're only bed and small space for one person, but feel cozy and privacy than 4beds in 1room like other hostel. Bathroom is clean and quite enough for sleep. Don't miss an art gallery cafe and simply yummy designed bread&baked "flour" at soi 17 nearby.
