Feels like home”
Bann Elephant Home feels like you’re at home. Nice, quiet and beautiful place. The staff is very helpful, will answer all your questions and give suggestions when needed. At the same time they will leave you alone when you don’t want to strike a conversation.
Bann Elephant is a beautiful traditional Thai home with lots of wood and cozy decoration that really feels like home. There are lots of places where you can sit down comfortably and meet some new friends or just read a book. The only bad thing is that the common bathrooms were not clean, the shelves looked like they had not been cleaned for months and there was a thick layer of grease on the water heaters. There's also no toiletries and not even soap. Ratings could easily go up if someone would take care of these basics.
I absolutely loved the look, feel, and experience of the Baan Elephant House. It seemed like the best combination of location, amenities, and value on Agoda so I chose it just based on what I saw on the site. My time there was so great that when I went back to Chiang Mai I stayed at Baan Elephant House everytime. A good mix of travelers stay here and it can be a quiet place to enjoy yourself.
Great value for money ”
The staff at this hostel are friendly and great. They bend over backwards to help. It’s location is a plus. I would recommend this hostel for your stay in Chiang Mai, especially in the Old City, An Elderly Backpacker.
Ease ad comfort in the old city”
We were mostly using the room for a homebase as we met with friends around town and looked for jobs. The old city is probably not the ideal locale for this sort of visit but Baan elephant was a pleasant place to stay. Additionally those working there were helpful and even allowed me to use their iron to prepare my interview attire. This is a totally clean and chill guesthouse that I will reccomend to all friends coming into town!
Great Hostel with Relaxed Vibe”
We really enjoyed our stay here. The building is traditional Thai teak and has cool chill out and communal areas. The traditional build does mean you can hear your neighbours like they are in the room with you but people were respectful when we were there. Staff are helpful and nice and the breakfast is good. It's also a great location in the old city but a little bit out of the way so quieter.
Great staff, great location and a nice room. You can book lots of things with the hostel including a trip to the elephant sanctuary which I would highly recommend!
In the corner of the old city, we cannot find it in the first time but latter is ok. It's so clean here,and the staff so nice!
Great for the price!”
Located near the southwest corner of the Old City. The three story open tree-house like building is cool. We stayed for a few nights. The walk to Thapae Gate was a little far but nothing to discourage you - unless you hate walking. Good restaurant not too far, laundry across the street. The beds are hard mattresses on the floor. Kinda local Thai style. But the rooms are clean along with the shared bathroom. Lots of open public spaces to look out over the town or read a book. Not traffic noise either! We tried to stay longer but they were booked.
We have a 7 months baby, and the first welcome was asking us if the baby crying in the night because the room are wooden room. Well it's a baby, our is not a crying baby, but anyway this does not make us feel confortable. If they have problems they could write not babies and pet allowed!! The room is small, but very clean, the matrass very confortble, but the room is completely dark. 2 windows looking inside the living room!!! In our floor for more than 10 room plus a dorm we had just 2 shared bathroom!! The price compare to the facilities was the most expensive we paid in Chiang Mai, and we are travelling in Chiang Mai many years
Was my second visit and would return again. Good location- close to attractions but quiet at night. Staff will help you to sort anything from activities to travel with ease and a smile. Recommended to any traveller as prices are reasonable with great chilled out service.
We couldn’t sleep!”
When we first arrived at Bann elephant, I was so happy as it looked very chilled and unique, however everything is wooden, and it’s only a wooden panel between rooms, so we could hear everything. Shared showers wasn’t clean. Communal area was lovely, staff were helpful.
Nice and quiet hostel with welcoming family atmosphere ”
But not the best hostel in Chiang Mai
Cheap, noisy and smelly bathroom”
It's a good deal for the price u pay, bathrooms were really smelly, there is no shampoo, shower gel, you have to bring your own. Wooden floors makes the while house super noisy, if u are not lucky with neighbours as I was. The room is small, but clean, we had problems with ants, they bite us over night. I would give it 5/10.
very good price and location, very noisy”
Average guesthouse, with good location and very reasoneble pricing. Thin walls and floor made of wood is nice looking, but guest can hear everything outside the room even footsteps . Not good if you want to sleep hard. Very helpful staff .
Ok for the price”
The place is ok for the price but the room had a smell of naftalin.
My main issue is that it smells like stinky feet everywhere. I just couldn't stand it. The toilet needs improvement. The lighting in the room is too gloomy.
Loud and smokey!”
Unfortunately our stay was less than pleasant. They wouldn't let us check-in until 1pm when their information says check-in is at 12pm. Our room was directly above the common area. We heard people fighting and talking about how they have to be drunk to pick up girls between 3:30-5:30 AM. The walls are so thin you can practically hear your neighbors breathe and in our case they were watching a video with the volume up and talking until 12am. Cigarette smoke filled our room every time someone smoked downstairs. The bathrooms were cluttered with people's things. That being said, when we brought our complaint to the staff they were really sweet and kindly switched our room for the next night. The new room still had very thin walls but we slept a bit easier not being over the common space.
Stay at this place”
My mates and I stayed here a couple of nights, couldn’t ask for more. Great value and everyone loves you. Stay here.
Staff very accommodating
