Second time staying in this hostel. Love the Japanese pod-style design so bunks are super private. Comfy beds and towel provided and everywhere very clean. There is a communal room but it's very rare that people are in there so maybe not the most sociable hostel but it has always been perfect for me when in transit. Close to Skytrain/BTS Phaya Thai and Ratchatharop as well as Siam Center.
The pod system is great. It allows for privacy. The place to put your luggage and lock them is great also: big, convenient. Also a breakfast is included. The hostel is very conveniently located near metro and airport link station. Finally, it is very clean and quite reshaping esteatic, stylish. On the downsides: there is no AC in the common area, so you either stay in the room or go to the connected café. The breakfast is asiatic, western option are quite limited

Comfortable beds, clean rooms and bathrooms. The hostel offers a decent breakfast selection (included) and helpful staff. Unfortunately, not much of a social atmosphere.Therefore, not a terrific place to meet people. It's a little more expensive, but you get quality accommodation for the extra money.
Nice enough hostel, but very out of the way. Unless you're only interested in going to the shopping malls I recommend staying elsewhere. There was a common area with a pool table and games, but I never saw a single person in there. Beds are ok, decent sized individual pods make for good privacy. This hostel would be ok if traveling with a group or if you're looking for solitude. Wasn't for me!
The hostel was great as the beds were very private. Access to the hostel felt very safe as you were given an access card. Location was a 10-15 minute walk from the airport link which goes to BKK airport. Breakfast was included in next door cafe and was substantial enough. Good stay!
15 min walk from bts. Staff try to be helpful but don't speak English the best so hard to communicate. hard to meet backpackers due to small social area which is located on top floor not on bottom.
