We stayed for one night here because we wanted to stay somewhere different to the typical Khao San road Bangkok experience. The area was nice and still central so it was easy to pick up a taxi and get to places in the city. From what I could tell the hostel was under reconstruction so the reception area felt a...

Good hostel, clean and the beds were comfortable. The construction going on was slightly annoying however we were there over the weekend so it didn't start early in the morning. The lady at reception is very nice and helpful. Met a lot of cool people however the security guard didn't allow talking in the common room after a certain time.

Good location! Great staff! Air con & wifi. Very close to canal boat stop to get down town! We asked the staff where we could go to a roof top pool and they sorted a place on koh San road for us which was cheap but amazing (Buddy Lodge). We stayed in a mixed dorm with big lockers!

The staff was incredibly nice and just cool people to talk to. The rooms had large lockers which was nice and the showers/bathrooms were always really clean. If you're staying in Bangkok this should be the only hostel you consider.

The women's dorm is quiet and clean with extremely comfy beds. The building itself is interesting and is nicely situation in Oldtown near some good eateries and local sites. It's also a comfortable distance from Khao San so you can avoid the tourist trap if you want or if you're keen you can easily get there by walking (30min) or...

We spent a week here when we first arrived in Bangkok and it was very comfortable. Rooms were clean and private. Did not have trouble with noise. Laundry can be dropped off at the front desk and picked up the next day. Front desk was very helpful with suggesting restaurants, giving directions and answering general questions. Stairs are a bit...

Me and my partner stayed here for 2 nights on 10th November. Nice little room, very clean. If you want to be close to koh san road then this hostel is ideal. Staff extremely helpful and all for a cheap price. Would recommend and would stay again.

This hostel is certainly not upscale, and has a one story climb with steep stairs to get to our room. So, I would certainly recommend this for younger travelers. The hotel staff really cares about you and tries to make your trip the best they can. One of them just waited 10 minutes with us to make sure we got...
