Good place to stay if you're looking to be near the action, great value as well. Dorms definitely aren't anything special but they get the job done.
We know we couldnt expect much for this price but not this. We had a 'deluxe' twinbed room but the sheets had stains on them, the floor was dirty, the bathroomdoor was not closing properly, there was fungus on the walls, there was a sewer smell everywhere, the shower was leaking constantly and very noisy. The location was good, only a 2 min walk from khao san road. The staff was ok. The smell however in this room was so bad. We were glad to leave after 1 night. Better go to Born free hostel!
Relativly clean, but hard beds and no windows in case of fire.

the best place to stay considering location, staff and the possibilities to meet amazing people!
The rooms are very basic, rundown and look gross. There is MUCH better for the same price in Bangkok and still well located.
cheap, close to the action, dirty (but its a backpackers in thailand so its normal enough, nothing disgusting), only major issue is the beds are like wooden benches. I'm talking you may as well sleep on the floor they are that hard.
In a nice location, though a bit busy for my liking. Definitely for the social backpackers who are looking to party and meet people. We only stayed one night but had comfortable rooms for a good price. There is an Indian restaurant downstairs that we really liked, so that's a plus. It can get loud at night but it wasn't unbearable.
The hostel is conveniently located near Khaosan Road, so it' only about 1km from the Royal Palace and other tourist attractions. Pros: Location, friendly staff, food (didn't try but it looked yummy and people seemed to love it!) Cons: Very noisy at night (till 3am), worst bed ever slept on in my life (I think they have inserted foam into an old mattress, making its surface uneven, e.g. soft and stone-hard in some places), dusty room. Boiling hot room!!
Rooms were really hot (hotter then outside) the beds were uncomfortable and it was loud at night. Although you do pay what you get for and the location was really good for sight seeing. Butone of the only hostel that advertised hot showers and aactually provides them!! I don't feel clean unless I use hot water so that was good.
It such a great place tho. Near from khaosan rd, 24 hours we dont hae to worry bout being starvingm lol. Theres a sevel across the street. But unfortunately also a kind of bar? N the music kind of a disturbing, due to the halloween n saturday night maybe? N none cleane our rooms for days. I have never been to a hostel before. So maybe its common, not like a hotel which is everyday get roomservices to keep our rooms clean? But i like the staffs, very kind n helpfull.

They serve the best Indian food in Bangkok! The staff is really helpful. If you don't mind the minimalistic rooms, you'll have a good time.
Always stayed there when in Bangkok. The location is very good, the dorms have AC and are clean ( would not recommend the single rooms as there is little air circulation) and the WiFi is working.The Indian Food downstairs is amazing. Would stay there again
that's ok .near with Khosan Road and cheap hostel in Bangkok .the guy Ram Karki is a nice and helpful boy.
You get, what you pay for. The staff is fantastic and helps you with anything. The location is also very good, 20 metres from bustling Khao San Road, it's really easy to find. The rooms are ok, nothing special, but cheap. They also serve some really good Indian food!
It's what you would expect of a budget accommodation on Khao San Road. Admittedly it was newly renovated, but by that, the owners meant a fresh coat of paint to cover up the stains and mold growth. You can do better than this.
It may be a cheap hostel but it's very very bad. We had the delux (!) room and this is what we got- no windows, very dirty walls and smelly as hell. The toilet was also very bad. The bed what rock hard, smelly and dirty. The walls are paper thin so we could hear ANYTHING a person did in the other rooms and they were not sleeping (...) So no sleep for no matter what price is no value for money. We would reccomand to stay away.
Great location to party. Horrible location to sleep. If you don't plan to go to bed before 4 am its a great place to go: It's cheap, the staff is nice and the food is good. And it's next to khaosan road.
