This is a nice boutique hostel with good atmosphere and very friendly staff. Location is reasonably good near the city center and Gaya street (need to cross a very busy main road, though). The hostel is relatively clean; however, guests are asked to leave shoes at the reception area before entering the rooms upstairs making it very smelly and unpleasant. Rooms are clean but don't feel so secure as dorm rooms can't be locked. Bathrooms are great with soap/shampoo provided. Breakfast is decent.

All staff are very nice and friendly. The boss is a very good man and he always hear the comments to improve the service. That is more better than last year I was stayed there. The hostel was add a small light at every bed, more clothes hool at room. Also a new washing machine was there. Overall, a very good hostel.

A perfectly fine hostel. Options are limited in KK so you can't expect much. My room was clean and the AC worked well. The staff is very friendly. Breakfast is basically toast and jam. There is no atmosphere in the hostel, which is a consideration of you are traveling solo, but this really depends on the crowd staying there.

This hostel lacks some of the things you come to expect in hostels now a days like a light and plug for each bed. The lack of keys for the doors is also a bit of concern, as anyone can come and go from any room at any time. There are a lot of newer hostels that have recently opened in the same area with more updated features.
