Overall a good deal. Clean rooms and bathrooms. There's always soap and shampoo/shower gel - that's very nice! Staff at the reception is a bit grumpy sometimes but if you really need help, they help! Breakfast and location are really okay for the price! 7-Eleven and lots of (good!) street food options 200 m away. One bad thing though: the mattresses are awful! Super hard and uncomfy- and I am actually not picky about that... my back was still hurting some days after I left.

Pleasant and quiet hostel. Perfect to relax after traveling around Thailand. Close to BTS Sky Train which makes getting around a lot easier. Only downside is that the A/C in the dorms is switched off during the day (until 6pm) so taking a nap during the afternoon was impossible. Otherwise if you're looking to meet lots of people and party, stay around Khao San Road.

Nothing fanciful about this hostel except the fact that it is near to the BTS station. Location of the hostel was quiet which was good to rest during the night. Would recommend it for people who are just looking for a cheap stay.

Only stayed for one night, but I had a very comfortable night of sleep. Located close to public transportation, very convenient. Friendly staff, great spacious bathroom and very clean!

only drawback is the air con goes off in the dorm at 11 and on again at 1800. there is no stove to cook if your looking for that. otherwise this is a superb place for the mature traveller. the staff were great. you can't go wrong staying at HI.

Great location to skytrain, and a wonderful food market at night on your doorstep. Friendly, helpful staff and overall a comfortable stay for one night before our next journey.

The staff were amazing and helped us out with anything from tours, to random questions, to airport transfers. It's a very laid back atmosphere which made it easy to meet other travellers. I would definietly recommend this hostel to a friend!

Unwelcoming staff, almost empty and not that good facilities. Stayed the 2 prebooked nights and went somewhere else.

I stayed here for my first visit to Thailand and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I loved how you needed a card for entry, it felt very safe. There was always a worker seated at the front desk which added to the security. It is on a street that has a bunch of street food, which was good for late night snacks. I will definitely stay here again.

The air con is a bit noisy. Other than that, a great guesthouse.

Everything about our stay was great. It would have been nice if the staff were a little more knowledgable about the area/things to do. It also would have been nice to have been notified of common tourist scams in the city.

I was very satisfied with the accommodations. When I arrived, however, there was no towel in the room and I didn't realize I had to ask for one at the front desk. Would be best if a towel is offered at registration. I also liked the first floor lounge area and would have enjoyed hanging-out there had I stayed for more than one evening.

the owner is very helpful when we are checking the locations for certain places of interest. Location is very good just 3 mins walk from BTS, the night local food stand is a big plus

Clean room with comfortable bed. Staff were all helpful and friendly. Close to restaurants and bars and easy to get a taxi or sky train if wanting to visit other places.

The location absolutely great! It is very near the BTS and it is very easy to get to around. I love that it is near the food stalls at Soi 38. Not only I felt safe when I was walking home late at night but I could also grab a mango sticky rice for supper on my way back. The hostel is clean but they could wash their blankets a little more often? They didn't wash mine when I checked out so I supposed they didn't wash it before I checked in too. But I loved my stay there. Will stay here again!! :)
