Great location for the railway station and not far from china town. Lovely cafe selling quality food. Reception staff most helpful. Very clean. Highly recommended.


it is just outside Hua Lamphong MRT exit and you can use the MRT exits to go to the Hua Lamphong Railway Station. it is also near Chinatown.


I stayed here two nights before getting on an overnight train. Great location next to train station. Quite quiet but this was nice. Good food down in the cafe and friendly staff.


good location at subway station

Perfect place if you are catching a long distance train as it is directly opposite the station. Most people are in transit here so there isn't much of an atmosphere. I think it is an old hotel converted into a hostel so it is quite grand and very clean. Bathrooms are great and the rooms are nice enough, wifi is good too. Wouldn't stay here if you want to see Bangkok and party but would definitely stay again if I was in Bangkok for a night waiting for a train.


Great Location - very short walk to train station. Facilities simple and clean. Great value.


The hostel is a great choice if you only spend a few days in bangkok. It is easy to reach from the airport with heavy backpacks with the metro and is right across the street from the train station, where most trains leave (to ayutthaya, to poipet / cambodian border). Also the cool roofbars (e.g. sirocco ) are only a short and cheap taxi ride away. The dorm was very clean, the bathroom was daily cleaned and the beds were made every day! The food was also really good and the whole place felt cozy


Very convenient!!!!!!!


Stayed in this hostel 3 years ago and it looks like the rooms have not been cleaned since then! Everything is rather dirty and looks very used and badly maintained. Stayed in two different rooms, the double room had a window that did not close properly, inviting a swarm of mosquitos at night and the single room had an ac that, when activated, distributed a unpleasant cigarette smell in the room which stay for the entire night. Lastly, this is the first hostel to charge for bag storage!


Perfect for a quiet night in Bangkok. Unbelievable value for money


We paid extra for a nice place to stay for our first night after a long flight to Thailand and arrived to find cockroaches EVERYWHERE! Asked to move room but instead the lady on reception sent a man to kill them, who then proceeded to pretend to squash them all. Do not stay here, pay a couple of quid for somewhere cheap- will probably be better than here.

Owner Comment (Hide)
We do apologize for this incident. We found a few small cockroaches in that room which was surprised for us also because we rarely found cockroaches in guestroom because our drain pipes have a system to block small insects to climb up. By the way, we will protect not to have this kind of incident again.


Only stayed one night but was very pleased. Right next to the railway station so if your catching a train in the morning it's perfect.


This hostel is very convenient to the Hua Lamphong Train Station. We were able to check in very early in the morning which was wonderful. The food in the restaurant is good. The rooms are basic but clean. Air con good, hot shower good, elevator slow but great to have. Wifi not good in my room, but great in restaurant. Would recommend when traveling by train.


Close to the station, but not much else.


The proximity to the train station is a huge benefit if you plan on taking the train. We were running late for our train, but our journey from the door of our room on the third floor to our platform at the station took roughly 5 minutes. The place is clean, the staff is helpful, and you're literally steps away from the subway. Overall a great value.


nice place. it was the 3r time i stay at this hostel. the atmosphere was better befor the renovation because it was more like home and not like a sterile hotel. but i still like the place because of the location, the facilities and the food.


Really good value for money and very secure room. The restaurant is really cheap but they ran out of meat!! so had to go elsewhere and around the hostel there really isn't much. This is a perfect place for a stopover between long train journeys as the hostel is only over the road from Hua Lamphong station.


Lovely kitchen staff with amazing breakfast - you do have to pay but it's worth it. Can also get other meals here. TV room was good, they have a selection of DVDs. I chose this hostel for the location as I came from the train station (you can walk from there) and also had to get the subway to the airport so it was perfect.
