By Bangkok standards, this was a nice, cosy spot. The building is a bit older, but that adds to the charm. The facility is kept clean and the staff is very friendly. Would definitely stay here again. (Stayed in a mixed 6-bed dorm with shared bathrooms). The location is convenient but away from the overly touristy backpacker strip, definitely a...

Wouldn't stay there again. Marginal neighborhood, far from mass transit and tourist sites. The beds were hard and uncomfortable and the bathroom was gross -and were were in a deluxe private twin room. Only thing going for it is that it is located on the same street as Thip Samai - the best Pad Thai restaurant in Bangkok.

Dear valued guest, Thank you for your last stay , first of all , as we clearly remembered you stayed with your daughter for two nights the room is really new , just only 3 months and it seems there's misunderstanding as housekeeping made up your private room and bathroom everyday and the receptionist also rechecked the cleanliness in the...

This place was quite the find in busy, dirty Bangkok. We loved our stay here. The good: everyone who works here is so kind and willing to help (most of them speak great english), great atmosphere, very clean and well maintained, spacious rooms, very nice showers and bathrooms, the most delicious menu (their coffee is not to be missed), it's...

I recently stayed here (July 2016) and enjoyed the place so much that I'm writing my first review. I really liked the location which is several blocks walk from the river / main temples and also about 15 minute walk to Khao San Road. There are some really good late night food options right here so the place feels very...

The good points: Awesome location, my partner and I like walking so visiting the area and the street food and markets around was perfect! Only 15minutes to Khao San road, which is worse to be seen! Same for Chinatown! Very friendly and happy staff. Good little cafe and the fried rice basil chicken I had was very nice. Thanks to...

The hostel looks great, the beds were very comfortable, the rooms and shared bathrooms were very clean and there was a security locker in our room . The location is pretty good, it is close to a water taxi to take you to the shopping district and you can walk to Koh San Road in about 20min. The staff were...

This hostel has been my favourite in my trip across SE Asia, it's very reasonably priced, the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and the rooms are fantastic with great aircon. The only down side is the bathrooms are shared but this wasn't a problem for us. Can't recommend highly enough

It was such a lovely stay here. We had a private room with aircon and en suite bathroom, doing our glampacking thing. Despite this being a hostel and very busy during our stay, the clientele were never rowdy or kept us up at night. The room faced the street and despite this the traffic didn't bother us. Free WiFi, hot...

Very nice staff (they will help you in any way), simple but perfectly clean rooms, very tastful and clean sanitary. In their main building (some rooms are across the street) is a great coffee/breakfast place, cosy like a livingroom. Ideal if you want to relax a bit after the busy Bangkok-vibes. Good price / quality. Location is also great (between...
