Good location, there isn't really a common room where you can relax and meet other travellers. Of course there's the coffee shop but not a real place to relax. But location is really good and staff very helpful. Would stay again.
The staff was very nice and very helpful

Overall - Best hostel I stayed in in Thailand Staff- extremely nice and helpful. Security – Large lockers in rooms with keys provided, staff on door 24hrs a day. Location – between old town and downtown, walking took about 15 mins to KS road, 30 mins to downtown and sky train (didnt need a taxi at all) Facilities - Everything clean and in good condition, spacious rooms and individual electrical socket for each bed Wifi - most reliable I had during my trip, worked perfectly throughout the hostel
Great place, super safe! Good location, but u can find a place at khaosan and msybe cheaper. Go to the pad thai place across the street! You won't regret it! Quiet, clean, fun. Not the beeest atmosphere, but good. Almost everyone I met had stayed there before and returned to use this place as their travel hub. Good internet everywhere. 24 hr security.
Cool hostel located in an area of town for those who want to experience a real local bangkok feeling. It's a walkable distance from the Palace, the gold montain and Khaosan Road as well. The rooms were clean and individual lockers big enough to put the whole backpack there. It lacks a computer with internet but they do have wifi. Would stay there again though.
A small, cozy hostel with a "family" feel. About 20mins walk to Khao San Rd (15min fast). Close to a lot of attractions. Staff were very nice and helpful. Difficult for taxis to find even with instructions. Hot water was temperamental. 150bht for laundry. 55bht for a great coffee. Breakfast ?120bht. TV Room with good selection of DVDs to chill. Best suited for those wanting a personal and relaxing time and definitely not a party hostel.
Nice stuff, clean place, close to lots of placed! Street food around the corner. Small coffee included at the place to hang out! 10 minutes easy recognisable walk to khao San even at night
The staff was super friendly! Very lovely people that make you feel welcome. They help you with any problem and are happy to answer every question you have. The free breakfast was very nice as well. The rooms are quiet and enough space. I would definately recommend this hostel. Only downside is that ist quite far from everythhing. But good place to relax.
Amazing latte! One of the cleanest hostels we've stayed in, great atmosphere for chilling, locks for the lockers, and wifi that actually works.
The staff was very helpful and had maps and direction for the taxi drivers to get to train or airport very easily. Great location next to an awesome Pad Thai shop. The rooms were cozy and comphy. Perfect pillow and blanket. Good wifi even in the room. Bathroom not always clean/stocked in the morning but over all clean throughout the day and night.. I know people come in late and drunk. Hot water sometimes.. But everything was great and I would defiantly come bac and recommend it to everyone.

I've stayed here 23 days in total. It's in a really good location close to loads of temples, just over the road from the Golden Mount
I loved my stay at Niras. It is conveniently located to all the top sites on my list- Grand Palace, Wat Arun, Reclining Buddha, Golden Mount. I ate at the famous Thipsamui pad thai restaurant twice because it is so close! The staff are very friendly and helpful. They provided Thai translations for taxi drivers. They are well organized and professional. The facilities have an authentic Thai theme with beautiful details. My only complaint is that the common room isn't great for meeting people.
Niras Bangkoc was a great hostel (though try telling a taxi driver find it - they were hopeless!). The staff here were lovely and not being located on Khao San Rd was probably a good thing because you could actually get a decent night's sleep, while still being a 15 minute walk to the action. Met some fun people here and the hostel itself was very comfortable - clean dorms, good facilities and a 'hip' café/reception downstairs where you can chill out and have a coffee or chat with others
I quite enjoyed my stay at this hostel. Staff was really nice and provided a lot of needed info about where to go and how to get there and such. I really appreciated the security guard meeting me at the door for my late night arrival. Clean, safe, and friendly; over all I would definitely recommend staying there.
Great hostel. In a nice quiet area that is very near the 'touristy' stuff. Staff is nice, friendly, and willing to help.
Very impressed. If you're looking for a quiet place, then I highly recommend Niras Bankoc.
I really liked this hostle.The girls at the reception are really nice and helpfull. Everything is clean.The rooms are clean and quiet.The beds are comfortable. You can reach a lot by feet.The other guests where mixed age, witch I liked. If I comeback to Bangkok I would definitely stay in this hostle again!
Staff working here were superb, extremely good knowledge for getting around Bangkok and things to see. Everything else about the place was fine, the dorm we were in was decent if a little on the small side, bathrooms were kept in good order. Didnt seem like the best hostel for meeting people but there is a social area. Huge number of local streetfood options all around the place, although if you want to eat non-local you have a bit of a journey on your hands.
Very nice hostel close to lots of attractions with great helpful staff!
Good location! Nice food places right across the hostel! 10 minutes walk from KaoSan road! D
