Awesome hostel, great cafe, clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. 👍


Lovely place. Very clean and safe. the staff is great. If you arrive at night the guy won't be able to speak English.


This Hostel is located across the street from some of the best street food you can get in Bangkok, Thip Samai and other competitors. City center is a quick canal boat taxi ride away, and Khao San road is only about a 15 minute walk. This Hostel has a very vintage feel to it, yet also very clean. The cafe downstairs offer the best cake I've ever tasted! All the people you meet, from the staff to the travelers are so nice and It has such a good vive it is addicting. Don't miss out on this place!


Niras is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! For starters it's the cleanest hostel I've been to. The layout of the hostel makes meeting new friends incredibly easy and the staff was excellent with helping with every need. There's a 7 11 convenience store 4 stores away on the same block and immediately out front of the hostel is a ton of food. There's a large street market vendor section across the street and a Thai famous Thippsamai pad thai across the street as well. Stay here!


Great value for money and very conveniently located (15 minutes to Khao San Road and 25 minutes to the Grand Palace & Wat Pho). It is incredibly clean, there are plenty of showers and the beds and lockers are huge! Rooms and bathrooms were cleaned every day and towels kindly replaced too. The staff were not only helpful, they really went the extra mile to help me get around the city and sort out my travel plans for my next stop. Best hostel I've ever stayed in and perfect for solo travellers.


Very good hostel. Friendly staff, even the guy that doesn't speak English. Saw a cockroach going up the stairs though.

Thank you for your comments, for the insect, we would like to apologize for unexpected , as you found it near the stairs of hallway in the night, we already clean it immediately in the next morning. For the guy who doesn't speak English, he's the security guard, his role is mainly for security not service and not your reception staff, thank you for your kind understanding.


Really good hostel

Thank you for the great review, even you stayed with us very short time , we do hope to welcome you next time and help you enjoy Bangkok. Wish you wonderful journey !


Very good hostel in Bangkok. Atmosphere was very good (many solo travellers), clean, staff that is very helpful and speaks English very well! Beds are comfy, big lockers. Location is good, not in the direct backpackers area but 10 min walk from Ko San Road. Definitely stay here! Because it is usually quite fully booked, early check-in is not possible. Bit more comfortable common room would be nice :)


Loved our stay at Niras. Small but clean and well equipped with very friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely recommend and stay there again. Great location as it's a 15minute walk from the river and opposite a famous pad thai restaurant.

Thank you for your kind comments and recommendation, it's so great to help you enjoy Bangkok old town and tasty Thai food.


I came alone and I really enjoyed it. It's small but you get to meet more people that way. It's also really cozy and homey if that's what you're looking for.

Thank you for extending the night with us . For location ,as we are centrally located in the old city. it's 10 min by taxi to BTS station, Thank you for your understanding .


I hate give 100% ratings, but I really have nothing bad to say about this hostel! It's far enough away from the main backer area to get a good night's sleep, but close enough to the area and the main temples for walking or a quick tuk tuk. Would definitely stay here again! Everything from the staff, to the vibe, facilities, beds, and rooms was awesome!


This hostel is the best!
