Perfect location, 20 seconds off Koh San Road. The staff were always friendly although their English was limited. The menu wasn't great although there was hardly a shortage of other places to go. There wasn't a common room but there were chairs and tables outside to socialise with others. The room had a cockroach and a few lizards when we arrived but aside from that was fairly clean. There were rats and cockroaches outside at night but to be expected in bangkok. Would definitely stay again.

Excellent breakfast! Coffee/Tea with toast :) Is located behind the khaosan road so i pretty good location not that loud at night still able to sleep. Quite safe, if you're staying alone in a room / owning the whole room yourself make sure you bring along a pad lock so that you can lock your door (so that you feel more secured) but is all up to you. For the 2 nights i stayed there by just locking the door normally without any padlock and my things are still safe. Would stay again!

Right in the middle of khao San rd so very noisy at night. Music stops around 3am so if you're out until then it's fine but if you want to sleep before that you'll struggle. Excellent location if you want to go out along khao San rd with all the other backpackers. The staff were very helpful and went above and beyond. The rooms we're clean and large but the shared bathroom was a bit rubbish. Toilet and shower one very small room and shower wasn't great.

Quit hard find, the rooms are very basic and the bathrooms aren't nice, but it's very cheap so it's expected. Wifi wasn't very good either.

This hostel is a bit hard to find since you have to cut through a market stall and down an alley to find it, but once you know where it is, it;s not too hard to find your way back. Otherwise the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and it was a great placer to stay for my first few nights in Thailand.

If you're into the bar scene this is a great place and very conviently located. It can be a bit noisy until the wee hours of the morning but nothing out of the ordinary for districts like this. Free coffee and toast in the morning, if your not into that they offer other cheap dishes for breakfast.

Right in the middle of Khao San Road so expect it to be noisy and bring earplugs! My room had a key and a spot to attach a separate lock on the outside if you want extra security. Bathrooms were clean but no soap. WiFi was very spotty but there is a computer you can use for free. Free breakfast is toast and coffee/tea but you can add eggs/meat for a reasonable price. Staff was helpful for giving info on taxi prices. I only stayed one night but it doesn't seem like a great place to meet others.

Room too hot and light for day sleeping! Excellent location to party at khaosan road tho!

Clean, spacious rooms, but the room only had a ceiling fan and got boiling hot at night... Also a little too close for comfort to Khao San Road, meaning loud music till 2:00am, though I guess for those who like to party till then, sleeping won't be a problem.... Bathroom was shared but in fairly clean conditions.

Great little hostel!

We stayed here for 4 nights, couldn't fault the place. Excellent location near to sky train just one bus away. Even though it's on the koh San road it isn't too loud. Bath room clean and always free even though shared. Staff helpful, great wifi and free breakfast :)

Great place if you want to be at the heart of the party, dont go here if you want some peace and quiet!! Rooms are fine, except mine was still missing a mosquito screen and curtain only covers half the window. Place needs a lick of paint and a deep clean. The outside seating is nice, but beware of rats and cockroaches. Never saw any in the hostel itself but they have no rat boxes down anywhere so they run anywhere, and the doors are always open to the corridors to the bedrooms.

If you're looking for atmosphere then I wouldn't say this is the best place. It's right on Khoa San road so location is ideal for backpackers. I had a fan room, so was a little hot

Great location on Khao San Road, helpful staff, free breakfast, good wifi - only issue is there is only one small fan on the roof which isn't sufficient in a room with three people! It was hotter in our room than it was outside!
