Great location and value for money. Very chill and friendly place.

Only one room with aircon, the other room had fans only. Decent location close to kao san road. Some of the guests were extremely loud in the middle of the night, but it's not really the hostel owner's fault if people are obnoxious.

Clean rooms, chill atmosphere. 10 minute walk to Khao San Road. Staff members are friendly and speak English well. No air con in air con room from 12:00 noon to 4pm for "environment"--gets pretty uncomfortably hot as there are no fans, either. Would have been nice to know ahead of time. Otherwise, a nice place. Bunks are side-by-side making two singles into doubles (great for couples like me and my wife). Loved the atmosphere.

Everything was amazing, starting from the availability of the owner Kevin, his wife and all the staff. Fresh water always available, A/C in the room, and the location is simply great, very close to Khao San Rd! 24/7 reception, what can you ask more?

This was my first hostel of the trip and I couldn't have asked for anything better. It was a very chilled hostel so if you're looking for a party then probably not the best. But the A/C room was lovely, very clean and the bathrooms where great. Kevin was incredibly friendly - highly recommend!

The staff were very nice and helped us book trains weeks in advance. The common area is very chill and everyone just sits outside to talk to other guests. A football game with some local kids was organised by the hostel. I thought this was an odd choice of activities but was actually really enjoyable and allowed us to get to know the other guests better and make some new friends.

Good clean hostel in a nice location 5 minute walk from all the action on Koh San road. Main negative was the lack of atmosphere, particularly for solo travellers. Ideal hostel for groups at a excellent price.

Our stay was so nice! We arrived before check in time but we could hang out and shower there before we were shown our room. :) the owner took us for a soccer game against the local thai and we had some beers afterwards. The little hangout spot in front of the entrance was a nice meeting place and so was the lobby. The bathrooms were clean, as were the bedrooms! The location was perfect, about 10 minutes from khao san by foot so no disturbing noises or whatsoever when you wanted to sleep :)

Fan room: fans really close to the upper beds, noisy and not regulable Buts in the main room

Owner Comment (Hide)
- There are fans between all the beds ceiling mounted and they can be switched on and off, not sure what you mean about no buttons to regulate them? You can regulate the speed from 1 - 3 with 1 being less noisy and less strong. All these fans are relatively new so I doubt we will find less noisier ones (?) - We do have an AC room too if that is an issue to you...

Great atmosphere and ambience. Staff were very friendly and the whole place had a good vibe. Good facilities and location, all in all perfect for backpackers who want to see Bangkok.

The vibe in this hostel is awesome. From the helpful staff to the friendly guests, we really enjoyed our stay here. The lounge area was the perfect place to chill after adventuring around the city. Kitchen facilities were a plus as we often brought back fresh fruit to have for brekky. We stayed a couple nights in the fan room and also in the AC room. Both were great. The AC room definitely feels a bit more boutique so its kinda worth the extra couple of bucks! Thanks Kevin and co! :)

Clean, friendly staff, good atmosphere. A bit of a walk to Koh San Road but not too bad. The owners tried to overcharge us for some treks and trips so I would recommend booking elsewhere

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanx for the feedback...If we "tried" to over charge you we would ask for double or triple the net price. 10$ more is not excessive but we usually also give you all other options such as booking the tickets at the train station, the trek on sight, the accommodation when you get there etc etc. Then again it depends to whom you compare it to since there are so many services, tours and agents around. Doing it yourself is more time consuming but way cheaper. Wish you a safe trip :)
