They provided water in the room every day. for us. The showers were always clean. The place was overall pretty quiet, and we were never disturbed. One time we were locked out of the hostel, because we left our key in the room (they lock down the building at 11PM) but we called and got let in

Good hostel, in a nice area of Bangkok, away from the noise of Khao San Road. Plus, it's just down the street from the worlds greatest Pad Thai. Would stay again.

Stayed here 2 times. 1st was really good but on the expensive side. 2nd time they advertised a cheaper price because of renovations but wouldnt give it to us once we turned up. They were also charging everybody the full price without then realising. Cheap prices are supposed to be going until mid december. Overall it was a decent hostel tho.

Dear guest, thank you for both stays .However, we would like to clarify you that the price you paid for the 1st time is the regular price and the second stay you paid is the special promotion, it's very normal and possible on the website that the prices of bed maybe varied according to the period each guest reserve .Thank you for your kind understanding.

I had an amazing experience at this hostel. It was my first time travelling alone and it couldn't have been more perfect. I met amazing people, everything you could possibly want was walking distance and if not, the staff were so helpful that they would always help you get where you needed to go. The rooms were secure, beds were comfy, wifi was good most of the time. Overall, it's a great place to stay in Bangkok. Will for sure be staying there again.

Niras is directly across the street from some really good street food, especially Thipsamai which always has a line for their famous pad Thai. The girls who worked the front desk were super helpful & really sweet. The 6-bed room we stayed in was clean & spacious. The toilet & showers are a bit small & tight-spaced. The location isn't bad; a few minutes on tuk-tuk to Chinatown & Khao San road. Would definitely stay again!

Great hostel only a 15 min walk from Khao San road. Not really any common area though. Staff very friendly and helpful. Overall a good experience in Bangkok

Great place and good alternative for not staying on the backpackers street. Cute and funky set up. Only complaint is there was no common area as the coffee house area was being renovated so no good way to socialize with others outside your room. Met some fun people though.

Excellent valuable place in heart of Bangkok old city centre. Right opposite to some tasty street food stalls. Great helpful and always smiling staff. Hostel is spacy and you can find some tourist tips on corridor's walls. Unfortunately we haven't found no lounge or common place (only small one). Rooms are clean and safe enough, only one problem was dripping fungus on the celling. However I would definitely recommend this hostel for all budget tourist.

Helpful and friendly staff, easily accessible location, and well put together dorm rooms with individual power ports made this hostel a great place to stay in Bangkok. The storage lockers could use a more secure lock but that wasn't much of an issue for me.
