Ver wonderful service, the staff was very friendly, helpful and proffessional. The facilities were clean and lovely and the bathroom was gorgeous. The location is ideal as well, in the heart of Old Bangkok and with something for everyone close by.

Thank you so much for the review regarding our professional service and facilities , thank you for seeing the advantage of our old city location . see you again next time !


Amazing! Had an incredible time in bangkok. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a pleasant experience, clean place, with good location.


The staff was so helpful; they went out of their way to explain everything (where to go and what to do in Bangkok, how to get top the islands, etc). They really made the stay enjoyable!

In my opinion it is a Backpackers,Backpacer Hostel . The Staff are jexcellent ,the rooms are spacious with efficient air con ,big secure lockers .very comfortable bunks in the spotless dorm rooms. When I returned to the Niras is was like coming home ,with a warm greeting .


It was an amazing 4 nights stay at the hostel. It was really clean and it was good that they enforced the "no shoes" rule within the hostel. The staff was really helpful and friendly as well.


Nice and clean hostel, only remark is that I noticed most of the people here come for a quiet time during their stay in BKK, not very social.


Good hostel, clean, very good air conditioning in the bedroom. If you like being out of the main backpacker area then its a really good choice, slept very well. Hard to meet people, not very sociable.


Nice place. Good vibes. Friendly staff.

hostel is quiet and close to Koh Shan road which is obviously a big party. I liked the hostel a lot which was very hygienic and well presented with excellent air conditioning. Although the bed was cheap the place did not feel cheap. I checked in 2 hours early so I could not go into my room as it was being cleaned but the really nice staff made me feel welcome and let me relax in the chill out room which had an amazingly comfortable sofa where I fell asleep without realizing it.


Great Hostel in BKK! Stayed there for my first days in Thailand. Great staff, excellent location to do Sightseeing and go partying by foot and nice rooms with big lockers.


Great location near the center of the city but still very quiet and clean. Access to public transport and the railway station particularly is easy, and the reception is extremely helpful with good English.


Not exactly a party hostel but still well located, it's about 20 mins walk from Khao San. It's an amazing hostel with good facilities, clean and very helpful staff. Thanks


Great stay! Map needs to be changed, easily got lost in the area.


The location is not bad, especially when your destinations are temples, while the beds and rooms are not that clean and comfortable. Beds are smelly and rooms are relatively small even at this price. A 7-11 is just around the corner and you can easily find good food across the road from 7:30pm to midnight.


A very cool and calm environment with a very clean, new and comfortable facilities. The staff is always very friendly.


Very good hostel, not that far from Khaosan road (10 minute walk). Had a great time over here, with the coolest people! We did Songkran, it was amazing! Hostel is clean, very good beds. Perfect atmosphere in the bar. We did some drinking games and went to Khaosan road together. Looking for a hostel near Khaosan road, then this is the best!!


Wonderful experience. Staff was incredible helpful - even walked over to 7 eleven with me to get SIM card issues figured out. Highly recommend staying here for a chill experience! Not located in the backpackers district, but about a 15 min walk. Close to a lot of the temples, and great street food right across the street.


Okay staff and location. Not the best choice if you want to be close to Khoa san road area but easier to get to other parts of town. For atmosphere and meeting people I would search elsewhere, but it was good for a few quite nights. Seemed very clean but parts of the hostel had really weird smell. Beds were comfy for a few nights but wouldn't really recommend.

Staff was very friendly and helped give good suggestions on things to do. The coffee from the coffee shop up front was delicious. Stayed in a private room, it was really clean and adorable. Good location. Would definitely recommend.


Great place, rooms were very nice, Very much appreciated having personal lockers. 10/10
