Great hostel if you're looking for a quiet place but still close to the busy Khao San Road. The curtains in the dorm give you more privacy. Big lockers under the beds which easily fit your backpacks. Very helpful and friendly staff! Awesome indian food!
The bathroom and shower areas were very dirty and did not seem well maintained. The atmosphere was limited because there is no common area.
Really mediocre hostel, they turned off the aircon during the day at 9am so if you wanted to sleep longer you melted. So expensive compared to nicer aircon rooms down koh saan. The people working there didn't seem to care about the customers and just about making money. No common room or social area apart from the restaurant downstairs where you were made to buy something. I got sick from the Indian food I ate there, I would not stay again.
Great place to stay near Khao San Rd. Street is quiet but noise levels highly depend on the fellow travelers in the dorm ;) Aircon in dorm (10 beds)was on from 9pm to 9am or so which was ok, fan could be used all the time. Plug and lamp available at each bed, linen, towel and 'blanket' (enormous towel but served the purpose :) included. The curtains for the beds give some privacy. 2 toilets and 2 showers were very clean. Staff is great, very friendly. Good Indian and Thai food. No common area.

This hostel is an absolute gem. So close to Khao San Road and nearby attractions like the Grand Palace, yet really good value and great facilities. The owners were very helpful throughout our stay and made us feel very welcome. The dorm was really nice - the curtains around the bed were a great feature and big lockers were useful. Highly recommended!
It is right next to Kaosan Rd. The food at the restaurant located in the hostel was tasty. I would recommend staying here. One very important thing...DO NOT book a bus to Chiang Mai from this hostel. We made this mistake. We were charged more than other people that were on the bus. Then the bus did not drop us off in Chiang Mai. It dropped us off 10 km outside of the city and there were taxis waiting there to charge you more money to take you the rest of the way! It was messed up!
Great place if all you want is a bed close to kao san rd.

Please improve directions to say simply „go to Khaosan road“, all people know that even if you don't pronounce it right. I had many problems asking people about the road you said.
You get a bed in a good location for cheap here. The room gets hot during the day because they turn the air con off. Do not book trips through the hostel!! I booked a bus from Bankok to Koh Phangan and had a lot of money stolen from my backpack on the journey. The backpack was under the bus with all the others but there was also a person down there going through everybody's bags!! The trip people that this hostel book through are thieving b*******.
