Nice little hostel, right next to Khao San Road but far away enough to have a decent sleep. Beds were really comfy and had curtains for privacy. Staff were so lovely and helpful with booking transfers to the airport. Hot showers and clean bathrooms plus they were doing some maintenance whilst we were there so they are being improved. Also there is a restaurant downstairs that is very convenient and nice! Would stay here again :)

Watch out for a Filipino named Alex, he's quite big and wilwill definitely try to bring you to bad restaurants. Owners are really cool though

Didn't manage to get very much sleep - people were in and out of the room all night and in the morning one of the staff members was sitting in the room having a long, loud conversation with somebody at 8am. As far as I'm aware there were no lockers in the 3rd floor dorm. Doors to the toilet and shower were broken. Location is good and the woman working at reception at night was very helpful. I also did like the curtains across the beds for privacy.

Well located hostel but really weak in terms of hygiene and comfort. When you are in the toilet the ceiling leaks water on you. In the entrance of the hostel that works as a travel agency and restaurant there was the same piece of fried chicken on a counter for days. In my last night there I saw a RAT in my dorm, discussing. Also, there are people checking in at 5am and waking up everyone. It was definitely an experience not to repeat again.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food downstairs was actually really tastey and convenient during sporadic rain storms. Only complaint is that the shower and toilets were not in the best state.

Managed to also get a cheap airport transfer which was good. Bring an extra padlock as you can use it downstaurs for valuables which is a nice touch.

It's a nice and cheap place, but the airco is turned off during the day. Some people tend to stay in the room and it'll get hot during those hours. Most of the staff is nice and helpfull. Showers are hot and the towels profided where nice.

I walked in and walked straight back out. from the outside its bad but I thought it was just the exterior. but nope. it's not nice inside the rooms.

The curtains over each bed for privacy are a godsend. I was sick for a few days with a fever at Rest inn and being able to draw the curtains and sleep during the day was great. Only complaint - the air conditioning gets shut off during the day which is rough. It gets hot! But at night, it's perfect. It would be nice to have a communal area as it's not an especially social hostel but it's great for someone who knows how to entertain themselves.

Hostel was relatively clean and people working there were average. Only problem was that they turned the AC off from 1-6othere otherwise it was nice ans cooled.

Stayed for 2 nights and had an average stay. The hostel is cleaned every day and the toilets and showers are clean. The staff is friendly (maybe except for a younger guy working there) and can help you out with tours and transportation. The beds are quite hard though, and the air conditioning is turned off quite early.

I loved staying here only downside was the fact that the turn off the AC from 9am-9pm which is when it is needed most.

The hostel was good, very cheap but with comfy beds that have privacy curtains which was a surprise. My biggest complaint about the hostel was that they don't turn on the AC in the rooms until nighttime, leaving it waaayy too hot during the day to take a nap or hang out in the room. The showers were hit or miss but other than that the facilities seemed fine. If you're staying in the Khao San area be careful, the subway doesn't go there and it's easy to feel disconnected from the rest of Bangkok.

Nice affordable place, near to Khao San Road but not on. All the better. Has food and tourist office available. And staff help negotiate tuk tuks to get price down. Bathroom is basic but fine. Beds are comfortable and even have curtains. Room however got very hot during day. AC could run a little more in morning and come on earlier perhaps in evening. Would stay again and recommended for good budget accommodation.

This has been my 5th stay here. Every time has been excellent. The location is great, staff is very helpful with booking your onwards travels or giving advice on what to do. When I come back to Bangkok I will stay here again and again.
