Great spot However, do not buy the mini bus transport to Cambodia (Siem Reap) which is sold at the hostel. It is a rip off. They drive you to the border, than they ask you extra money for the visa before crossing the border (saying that they take care of the visa). It is just a scam. If you don't pay them, they'll leave you at the border forgetting about Siem Reap. Me and my mate did it ourself, it cost half of the price just by crossing the border by foot.
Personnel is not able to communicate effectively in english.

Great and helpful staff! Perfect location and clean rooms. Breakfast included: 2slices of toast with jam with a glass of juice and a cup of coffee. We had a nice stay, and would come back
It was a pleasant stay. Not many people about tho so wouldn't stay here if your looking to party. Nice dorms clean and a nice set up. The owner is also lovely. Would recommend for a quite stay in Bangkok.
very close to khao san road but far enough to be relatively quiet. a block to the action! great reception. very nice and helpful. not a ton of english but more than willing to help. very comfortable rooms. air conditioning was great. nice outside area for showering and talking outside of bed area. luke warm shower.
I really enjoyed my stay at Baan Bovorn. It is close to Khao San road but far enough away that the noise level is low at night (Khao San itself is quite a loud place). The staff is excellent, helping you plan your activities (they will write things in Thai to show bus drivers, give good food recommendations, etc.).
