              Room is clean suit and perfect for 1 person and location is really really good. but maybe they need to find out that how to handle with noisy traveller or snoring traveller. maybe add more staff and let some staff go to check at night.

              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!

              Cozy and homey space at very cheap price”

              You pay very cheap for your own comfortable space in cozy and homey style hostel. Right in the middle on Nimman where you can get everything. Only thing I think a bit lower expectation is staff. The hostel itself represent warm and homey feeling but staff I feel she just sits there with her laptop not showing welcoming and smiling for the guests when they come in.

              good private simple sleep at Nimman”

              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.

              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.

              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.

              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.

              Disapointed- Bad Ventilation, Bad partition Design not fully Covered, Have Baby cockroach in my room ”

              Baan Mek is 1 of 4 Hostel i stay during my 6 days trip in Chiang Mai, the day i check in is on 42 degree for the weather. It's Super Hot that time in Chiang Mai. The time i check in is around 8pm, after i got the key, i went to my room, i just realized the door is not fully covered up til ceiling, the guest exactly my next door snoring very loud cause not fully cover room.after i open my door, i feel very hot inside the room even though the corridor air-cond is turning on, but the ventilation design i would say "failed" the room dont even have fan, the air-cond from corridor doesn't flow into the room.after i put my beg down i saw a baby cockroach... so i request for a room close to the air-cond, but worst, more hot & the modem is inside the room & tried another room also worst. s i have no choice to get back the 1st room. after shower i went out have Dinner with my GF family, came back about 12am, the guy still continue snoring very loud... i have to clean my body again before go to bed, Luckily i brough my earphone & start lying on my bed but cant fall sleep cause it's hot in the room, i have to try & make myself more tired & sleepy by keep playing my phone until i cant stand. I can hear my front room 2 guest very Helpless, keep rolling on the bed but can't sleep more than 1 hour, I guest they felt hot & un-lucky they might not have ear-plug cause my next door keep snoring more than 5 hours....i dont know what happened to that 2 front room guest after 1 hour+ cause i cant stand anymore and sleep. I advice the Baan Mek's Owner try to sleep in his own hostel for few day, then they will know all the room itself have a lot of thing need to be re-do especially Air ventilation, Room Partition design...

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.

              Room is clean suit and perfect for 1 person and location is really really good. but maybe they need to find out that how to handle with noisy traveller or snoring traveller. maybe add more staff and let some staff go to check at night.

              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!

              Cozy and homey space at very cheap price”

              You pay very cheap for your own comfortable space in cozy and homey style hostel. Right in the middle on Nimman where you can get everything. Only thing I think a bit lower expectation is staff. The hostel itself represent warm and homey feeling but staff I feel she just sits there with her laptop not showing welcoming and smiling for the guests when they come in.

              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.

              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.

              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.

              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 1 of 4 Hostel i stay during my 6 days trip in Chiang Mai, the day i check in is on 42 degree for the weather. It's Super Hot that time in Chiang Mai. The time i check in is around 8pm, after i got the key, i went to my room, i just realized the door is not fully covered up til ceiling, the guest exactly my next door snoring very loud cause not fully cover room.after i open my door, i feel very hot inside the room even though the corridor air-cond is turning on, but the ventilation design i would say "failed" the room dont even have fan, the air-cond from corridor doesn't flow into the room.after i put my beg down i saw a baby cockroach... so i request for a room close to the air-cond, but worst, more hot & the modem is inside the room & tried another room also worst. s i have no choice to get back the 1st room. after shower i went out have Dinner with my GF family, came back about 12am, the guy still continue snoring very loud... i have to clean my body again before go to bed, Luckily i brough my earphone & start lying on my bed but cant fall sleep cause it's hot in the room, i have to try & make myself more tired & sleepy by keep playing my phone until i cant stand. I can hear my front room 2 guest very Helpless, keep rolling on the bed but can't sleep more than 1 hour, I guest they felt hot & un-lucky they might not have ear-plug cause my next door keep snoring more than 5 hours....i dont know what happened to that 2 front room guest after 1 hour+ cause i cant stand anymore and sleep. I advice the Baan Mek's Owner try to sleep in his own hostel for few day, then they will know all the room itself have a lot of thing need to be re-do especially Air ventilation, Room Partition design...
