Really liked this place. The staff was very friendly and always helped us getting directions. They would hand us little pieces of paper with locations I'm thai and English to give to cabs / Tuk tuks. It helped a lot.

The location of the hostel is perfect. Across the street from a famous Pad Thai restaurant and walking distance from the royal palace, china town, khaosan road, and many other major attractions. The staff is super friendly. They'll will sit around and chat with you and help you out with anything you need. Good vibe, easy to meet other travelers. Rooms were air conditioned and very clean, big beds. Only downside is they were doing renovations during my stay, so it had noise and a strong smell.

It was my first time in Bangkok and I was a bit worried about the hostel: location, security, value for money etc. but I was very pleased to find very helpful staff at reception; the girls were always there to help me out and suggest things. The hostel is kept very clean. Very good shower and the room has big locker were you can put everything and make it tidy and nice. Air conditioning works really well. Recommended for sure :)

Under renovation, so not nearly as nice as it used to. Met good people there though.

Great hostel because it has excellent facilities, friendly staff and good wifi. It's near a few eating establishments and it's easy to walk to Bangkok's backpacker district, without having to live in a really noisy part of town. A good breakout space to socialise in and relatively easy to get to and from the airport. If I stayed in Bangkok again, I'd certainly hit the place up and recommend it to fellow backpackers. Good work!

Pleasant stay and good location. Celebrated New Year's Eve and we had an awesome time. We've also met nice people at Niras.

Beautiful hostel in an old house. All wooden floors. Beds are comfortable. Showers are great. I arrived late, late, and the security guard wanted me to leave my passport at the front desk. I convinced him to take a pictureof it instead. If you are arriving late, might be a good idea to bring a photocopy of your passport. Day staff are very friendly and helpful.

Cute little cafe looking hostel. It was nice enough but it was under construction and was hard to spot. Staff made up for it as they were nice and very helpful.

Comfortable beds with nice sheets, great AC, and clean bathrooms with good showers. The staff are all great and very friendly. It's in a good part of town, not too far from sights and activities. Quiet place, but with a good group and easy enough to meet people. Recommended for sure.

Beautifully decorated hostel in prime location - near Khao San Road and the main buddhist temples. Comfortable beds and good AC with huge personal locker. Love the whole feel of the place... awesome experience! Girls at reception are cute and friendly too ;)

The staff at this hostel are so incredibly helpful and will go above and beyond when you ask for assistance. The hostel is nice as well. The location is ideal, it's close to a famous Pad Thai restaurant, a quiet park, a beautiful temple and it's within walking distance of Khaosan Road. I was a little apprehensive about staying in a hostel, but I'd gladly come back to this one.

If you're looking to rest, it's a great place. If you're looking to party and meet new people, it's a great place for that too. The staff is awesome, too!

This hostel is down the street from one of, if not THE best pad thai restaurants in Thailand. It's also within walking distance of many of the city's sites. If not, it's a cheap tuk tuk ride from where you want to go. The staff was friendly and the hostel has a nice feel to it. They were renovating while we were there, so the place was a little messy.
