The hostel was great. Friendly staff, awesome guests, cheap bar and a good breakfast. The AC needs to be properly working, though. I've stayed in two different rooms and one had a malfunctioning AC, which led to a rough night. Still, I've had a great stay.


Showers dirty


The staff here is so amazing they are the most helpful and always steer you in the right direction! only bad thing was wifi is spotty, which I personally don't mind being unconnected, and the water was not working all the time I was there which was annoying. never lasted more than a day tho, in the end I would stay there again for sure!


Great hostel to stay in, very very very friendly and staff :) comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. The free beer tastes a bit to much like vinegar for my liking but hey its free so who cares.


almost It was worthy to pay for a dorm, except that I found a cockroach on a floor. you'd better keep the room cleaner.


Just perfect for your last days in bangkok, because you are so close to the bts skytrain. So it's easy to get to the chatuchak market or the mbk and also to the airport raillink;) which is perfect for spending the days with shopping for very little money ;) the hostel itself is nice and there is a lot of nice streetfood, a supermarket and a 7eleven just around the corner. Plus, the hostel offers you fresh towels, which is nice for travellers too;)


Amazing! Did Sapa, Halong Bay, and Mai Chau tours through the hostel. All were awesome. The staff is great and so helpful. Eat from the Bahn Mi from lady in the alley with the graffiti. It will change your life.


Nice place, great location and sweet staff. Quite all right place.


My favorite hostel so far. The stuff is very nice and helpful. It is rather a small or medium sized hostel so it is easy to get to know other travellers. Especially, between 7 and 8 pm when everyone gathers in the Bar for the free beer.


Nice hostel overall. The movie room is great! Very comfortable and roomy (although many of the dvd's didn't work because they were scratched). Staff was very helpful and friendly.
