The hostel needs major renovations. The rooms are dreary and depressing. Though they might be clean, they give you the distinct impression that they're not. Also, the lockers provided are all broken. Security is not the best. I wouldn't stay here again, especially when there are so many better places at a similar price.
Despite being very basic (and I mean that) the hostel is very good value for money, mainly for its location and price for an ensuite double room. The hostel is literally 5 mins walk from busy Khao San Road but as it's in a tiny alleyway next to 7/11 it is still fairly quiet at night, in spite of a few pricks who kept slamming doors. Also, I felt it was very secure (don't be put off by the dark tiny road, though) and you can leave valuables in lockers literally by reception.
good value for the area if you like khao san road. staff were not nice at all. But the room was big enough and comes with a small balcony
Facilities are actually the value of the money you pay, nothing special, I was on a budget trip and this hostel was one of the cheapest I found for a private room, I didn't like the fact that there were no clean towels at the room and I had to ask for them,and also that I stayed there for 4 nights and there was never room cleaning service. There's free Wifi at the restaurant but it's turned off at night, which is not good at all when you need to make your plans for the next day
This was our first hostel ever, Staff were really friendly, the food was good, the rooms were a bit dirty, no air conditioning so really got at night, didn't sleep well, cold water shower was ok at first but other hostels of the same price offer air con and hot water showers,there was also building work going on whilst we were there si noisy. Overall we have a sift spot for joes as the people were lovely and the food was good.
Great way to meet other travelers, very close to the main Ghat! Loved the service as well :) Also have a lovely rooftop to enjoy the evening sunset on!
Very good location, close to Khaosan, bus stop, walking distance to Grand Palace. Staffs are friendly and helpful.
It's great value for what we paid. The location is excellent just a little bit hiden from all the fuss in Khao san. You can secure your room with extra lock if you have one, sheets were clean, we got a free towel. Definitely recommended to budget travellers.

Nice place, Good location, staff were friendly and always there. Good value for rooms. Didn't exactly feel safe leaving anything valuable at the site, but I am maybe overcautious. Far enough away from Khao san road to be more peaceful, close enough to have access to everything/anything you want, whenever you want. Free wi-fi on the bottom floor only. Clean enough for me, all in all a positive experience, would stay again and can recommend for travellers.

This was a great place for a night or 2 if you want to stay close to khao San road and all the main sights! Clean, quiet at night (construction next door starts at 8 am though, so no late sleepers here!), and secure (bring your 2 pad locks as others have said). We were able to walk to grand palace and several Wat, and spend our evening in the heart of the action! I would recommend it!
A double room for less about 8 quid!! Great value for money. It is however quite run down and could do with a deep clean.
You get what you pay for. But in the centre of Bangkok, just off Khao San road, very good value for money comparatively. Quiet location, nice outside area. Make sure you have lots of padlocks. One to lock your room. And one to lock your valuables in the lockers in reception. Cold water perfect in the humidity! Don't bother to pay extra. Fan was also very powerful. Small room with window and balcony for 400baht each.
