We stayed 3 nights in a private room with AC. Would highly recommend if you need a break from roughing it - this was like luxury after some of the bungalows we had stayed in. Clean, hot showers, good wifi. Self serve laundry machines onsite; you can buy individual soap packages from the 7-11 nearby. Really nice garden area to sit and relax. Overall quiet, felt safe coming back late at night, and also comfortable leaving valuables in the room. Would stay again.


The location is very good, 10 minutes walking distance to Khaosan. The taxi driver had no problem finding it when shown the description from the website. The staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms clean, bathroom as well. It lacks the typical "hostel atmosphere" but it was not what we were looking for. We already booked rooms fornthe second stay. I strongly recommend this hotel!


The garden view is nice However the hotel is a bit too big (too many beds) and there lacks a nice common area (other than in front of the concrete hall) to meet other travellers


Excellent spot to start discovering Bangkok, the main attractions of the city are easy to reach even by bus! The staff was always helpful and friendly. The hostel is rather open, they only close the main gate at night, otherwise there's nothing between the street and the room door. Stayed for three nights in a single room, everything clean and the room quite spacious! Just a bit hard to find for cab drivers apparently and not too much atmosphere... Great deal nevertheless!


Nice place with friendly staff, although it is a shame the single rooms only have a fan and no AC. Also quite removed from the railway system, but very close to the river boat system and to Khao San road if that's your thing. Overall good value for money.


Nice and close to attractions but away from noise at the same time. Staff friendly and helpful. Firm matress.


I stayed at Penpark for 2 months during work trip. I found that it was excellent value for money and in a great location for convenience but far enough away from Khao San Road that it's quiet and you won't be kept up into all hours of the night. The staff are friendly and the facilities are clean and comfortable. There is a lovely rooftop area with a great night time view. I will definitely stay here again when I come back to Bangkok.

We really enjoyed our stay here; there was an issue with the room we booked, so we received an upgrade to the next category. The room was beautiful and when we were finished partying we enjoyed watching movies on the flat screen. Quiet and a a solid walk from the party areas. Would definitely recommend if you don't want to be on top of the Kaosan madness.
