Very clean. It's near Khao San Road if that is your thing. Has massive lockers. The rooms are air conditioned! Would stay here again!


Location is great, they have very good street food just around the corner and the Grand Palace and Big Swing are also right down the street. It's very clean, staff is friendly and happy to help with request - Breakfast is also great! Highly reccommend the banan pancackes :)


A huge hostel, modern and clean. It's somehow missing the backpacking vibe, as public areas r probably too huge, every guest could have his own table there. About the location - in the description they say 10 minutes to kao San, 15 to skytrain ?? - yes maybe with a tuktuk. by walking it's at least twice the time. Staff is helpful but a bit chaotic. I got key for bed 5 but I had to sleep at bed 6, which didn't really matter but they had to exchange my key after one night.


Great place to stay. Near the old city and the most important Wats. Don't expect to have fun there, the place look more like a hotel than a hostel. Worth the money.


waited in reception for 5 hours waiting to check in. when we go to our room (8 bed dorm) the beds and towels hadn't been changed. what the cleaners were doing for 5 hours is a mystery when we had booked 1 week in advance and only booked 3 beds. Wifi doesn't work on the 2nd or 3rd floor. No air con in cafe or common room. too hot! clean bathroom and good space. okay hostel but more like a hotel. wanted to use washing machines. instructions were Thai and the staff didn't know how to use them.

Great hostel. Very modern and clean. Staff was very helpfull. The room for 2 was very spacious, modern and clean with a fridge, vault, and tv also inside the room. The common area had a computer and some games wig a huge dart board. They also had a taxi with meter waiting in the front at all times, so you wouldn't need to walk out to the main road to look for one The bathroom in the other hand had sign of mold(very small). I would stay in this hostel again.


Absolutely gorgeous place, looks like a hotel (in a good way). Definitely a lot more families and tour groups than most hostels, but it was surprisingly easy to meet other young solo backpackers. Breakfast was pretty expensive considering it's Thailand, but there is street food right outside!


One of the best hostels I ever stayed, the room was big and clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, wifi wasn't so good, couldn't use it in the room, only at the reception. The location was also great.


There is a very annoying pump working outside the dorm 24 hrs a day. Does not help sleeping.


Everything was good except this is more of a hotel than a hostel.


Very clean and comfortable, and they had hot water! I would definitely stay there again for visiting the old town section. It is a little hard to get to from the subway, so plan on about a 100 baht fare for a drive from or to the subway.

Literally flawless. So clean! Only negative is that it's not exactly ideal if you are keen on getting very drunk and being loud... But just head on to Khao San Road and you'll be alright!

There was some construction going on. I cloud not sleep.


The Hostel was very nice and modern, but it was more like a hotel. The common areas don't have a/c but some people hang out by the lobby. Breakfast is not included but you can buy it there. It is good. It was also very clean. The staff is very helpful.
