New road guesthouse has changed more better day by day, thank you!


Average hostel. Stayed here for its proximity to the BTS and water taxi. Walking distance to Chinatown.


If you book by HW it will be cheaper then pay by cash. But not always, it's providing by promoting


The room it was really little, and the bathroom too.


Such a lovely hostel to start my trip. Many solo backpackers like me from all over the world, a very good atmosphere and such a kind staff. The common room is really cosy at night with lots of people interacting, and there are stalls with food and fruits nearby. It is quite easy to take a boat or the skytrain to the center. Would stay here again for sure!!


Good hostel, out of main Bangkok a little but nice clean and helpful staff.


Booked private room and had a cold shower. It's far from khaosan Road, but we knew before we booked it. Bad point was being woke up two days in a row at 8am by cleaning staff. Otherwise nice room, clean.


Average facilities cleanliness etc, but i payed 150baht per night so what can you expect? Fantastic value for money, must be linked with a dutch tourist company however as everyone was dutch so harder to start up conversations. Still fine experience for what i needed/wanted.


Great location, very friendly english-speaking staff, nice rooms with fans.. had a very nice time there!


I think for the very little backpacker room, I payed way too much money. I didn't enjoy the info meeting because I didn't get travelling information, mostly just information about your tours.

Good value and convenient hostel. Pleasant atmosphere and comfortable outside seating area with wifi. The area was quiet at night so good for sleeping. Well situated 10/15 minute walk from BTS and close to a variety of street food stalls, also within walking distance of china town (depending on how lazy you are and how slowly you walk). The room with air conditioning was very comfortable, the rooms with just a fan were a little bit stuffy. Some minor problems with hot water and toilet flushing.


Bunk beds are very noisy and this makes it hard to sleep. Our dorm room was long and then and rhe airconditioning unit was located on the other side of the room so we were hot.


Clean hotel with a really nice staff, I recommend for your stay in BKK. Just don't forget to bring a padlock for your locker ;)


A Nice hostel, with grelt straf. The Danish travleagency Jysk Rejsebureau have their Bangkok office in the reception, which means it it easy to book tours, tickets etc. every day they have a free Bangkok introduction at 5 pm, which came in really handy to me. A fine hostel, but beware of the many Danes who lives there, they drink a lot.


Good price for what you get. The room was small but still ok. The staff wasn’t really friendly during check in and check out but the hostel itself has a nice look and it’s located in a quiet street behind the big road. Close to ferry and bts so good to get around in the city.


Great hostel in a local part of town. The dorms are clean though a little dark and hot at times (my bunk unfortunately wasn't in range of the fans). Staff are really friendly and helpful, the breakfast is the full works and very good for 160B, and the free tea and coffee was a lovely extra to give. All round an excellent hostel which I will be returning to very soon!


We had a room with a fan and it was so hot! We couldn't get on wifi in the room but was good in reception area, the food was good value and nice. Some members of staff weren't very helpful we're almost rude. There was no safe In the room only in reception which isn't where you want your valuables left.


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.
