The rainbow has been around for a long time. We were there about 10 years ago and I do not think any maintenance has been done during that time. In our latest room walls and ceilings were mouldy. Mattress lumpy. The bathroom indescribable. The toilet system leaked when flushed. The bedding was however clean and the staff are friendly. At 400 baht for a twin room with fan it's cheap for bangkok. Free toast,tea,coffee and juice available in morning. The Indian restaurant below is very good. You get what you pay for i suppose. Shame it has gone downhill as it has an ideal location for the khaosan road.

Hostel was Ok, staff were friendly and the location was great, right next to Khaosan road. Room assistant but price reflected this, I don't feel the hostel should claim to provide free breakfast when all that they offer is three prices of toast with jam and butter that smells like it's been sitting on the sub for a week...

This hostel is in an ideal location for a night out on the famous khaosan road! There is also an Indian restaurant in the downstairs area which does great food! The rooms have aircon which is good but are very basic but I wasn't expecting much more for the price!
