Baan Dinso is a lovely oasis in the midst of hectic Bangkok. It may be called a hostel, but is far above any hostel I've ever stayed at. This charming B&B features lovingly restored rooms, great amenities, and a staff that is fantastic. The cafe serves up excellent food if you need to supplement the vast offerings of the local street stalls and restaurants. I'd like a Thai breakfast offering. Easy to catch a cab to anywhere, or explore the area on foot. Outside the normal tourist areas, so you get a pretty good feel for a Bangkok neighborhood.
The single drawback is the cats. During the day all is well, but at night be prepared for some robust howling or the occasional fight. Yes, they'll provide earplugs should you desire, but after the first night I preferred to get up, go out and shoo the offenders away.
For a few days stay, it's local color, for longer stays it could become annoying.
But I'd certainly stay here again, and wholeheartedly recommend it!
