Overall good experience. Staff were very helpful, fan-rooms were not as bad as everyone made out, great location and a good value for your money. Do be warned though, if you get hungry or thirsty don't get tempted to take anything out of the mini-bar, despite the lack of signs and information regarding this, you will be charged on check-out.
Nice Hostel, but.. A place, where the staff can put things they found while they clean up, would be nice! Then they dont throw away my food the next time ;)

We stayed here when we first arrived in bangkok and its definitely worth the money. Its pretty clean and feels secure and safe. The staff are really friendly and helpful and they have a desk to ask about stuff to do in Thailand so that is really helpful. It's not very close to all the main attractions and Koah San Road but its about 89 baht in a taxi.

Spent a long time to find out this hostel on the first day, but it was full. A good place to stay, friendly staff, nice yard. But it will be very noisy at night, because the bar is downstairs.
Good! Just note there's no FREE breakfast and it takes more or less 20minutes walk from saphan taksin station. Most of the guests are from Europe (Dutch, Danish and etc.)
big hostel, lots of travelers from Europe. bar downstairs makes a bit of noise at night, but overall it's okay. breakfast is crazy overpriced, but room was a good price. a lot of jewellery shops in the neighbourhood, if that's what you came to Thailand for?
Great hostel and great price, highly recommended.
Only stayed there one night instead of two. 10 bed dorms are terrible, smelly, the beds are uncomfortable. Cleaning ladies are rude. Shovers are...terrible, you can not even lock most of them.
the bathroom is too small but it's great. you have to bring your own padlock. The location is reachable with taxi. beware of tuktuk, I rode taxi from Hua Lampong Railway Station, it's only costed me abt 40-60THB, While 'kind' tuktuj drivers offered me 150THB.
The fact that the hostel is the primary stop for most of the danish youths coming to Bangkok should have been very transparent. The hostel is also employed by young danish people who most nights invite to a party in the commonroom. This might not have bothered other guests if the commonroom wasnt located directly underneath the doorms. Doorm living is unbearable as people here dont respect sleephours and are drunk most nights. Lockers for valuables were also unavailable for the whole stay.
Staff isn't very friendly/ helpful. The place was clean. Beds are alright but very basic. You can stay a little down the road at another hostel for cheaper and have much better accommodations. The common area also leaves a lot to be desired. Showers are small with heaters working most of the time. No locks given for lockers so bring your own. Nice quiet location. Felt safe.
Comfortable and clean but a little loud at night and a 20 minute walk from public transportation.
We had an amazing stay! Everyone we met was so friendly. There was an awesome atmosphere. The staff were all very friendly. The rooms were air conditioned all night so a good nights sleep was easy. We would definitely stay here again!
Ok location. Would have had an ok value for money (it's very cheap) if not for the fact that the cleaning ladies, for no apparent reason, had to make an extreme amount of noise early every morning when they were cleaning outside of the dorm room. It sounded like they were beating something against the floor, maybe to wake up the sleeping guests, not sure.
The best hostel I've ever stayed. The restaurant provides a very tasty thai food and also an amazing american style breakfast for a very reasonable price. The staff are more than friendly and the bar is a excellent space for having a local beer and make new friendships. Definitely would come back again.
New road is recommended for all traveller who want to visit bangkok essentials because near with oriental pear and very easy to go to the grand palace, wat pho, and wat arun. If u want to go to asiatique also very easy from there.. but a quite far from saphan taksin pier. From saphan taksin pier to hostel it takes about 20 minutes walking and becareful if u go at night.. theres a scam there.. becarefull with people or couple who looks like professional.. they will talk to you and try to scam u..
The New Road guesthouse is a great place to start your trip in Bangkok especially if you are a backpacker. The staff is Thai and Danish and they a ready to help you at any time. The rooms are ok, clean and nice with fan. Nothing special but really great for the price. I stayed there twice and I want to come back! The Breakfast is nice:)

Generally a nice place to stay, but didn't have much in the way of character. Still, great value for money with easy access to transport links around Bangkok.
