All the good comments are wrong posted by the owner. It is very far from khao san road like 1h of walk and not 5 minutes. The neighborhoods is creepy and dirty, you arrive in the middle of nowhere. What's more, the woman who welcome us didn't speak english at all. Don't ever go to thi place !!


Grate hostell if you don't want to live where everyone else is living. Clean and nice, but you live with a family and it is no where near Khaosan -as the name implies. But when you find a taxy that actually understands where this is (1 of 14) It is a quiet and nice place to stay :) And allso if you want a free guide! The owner will gladly take you shopping or temple-watching or whatever your eyes may desire! extra points for this! :D

The photos of this place are misguiding!! There are very basic facilities with just one toilet for all people in the hostel! It's far from most Bangkok attractions with no easy commute available.


Far from khao san (3 kilometers) and only one bathroom, but very nice staff, very helpfull, and a family athmosphere.

This was literally one of the best hostel I have ever stayed! Staff was really friendly and helpful. We were supposed to take the bus to Siem Reap so we were waiting for driver at 5:30am but he did not show up and they told us they came in and we were not there. This was horrible experience but the staff at hostel tried to help us out and arranged private taxi. We highly appreciate it and the location is pretty nice if you wanna go out. Highly recommended!
