At the check in is been given to me the room under the kitchen and restaurant at the 7th floor,very very noisy and dirty. I told it at the reception and fortunately I moved in another one which was ok! I liked the location,close to Chinatown,nice neighborhood. My reservation was for the cheapest twin room,basic with fan and shared toilet which is only in one floor(I think the 5th).


Location: very good, very close to the port N3,so is easy and cheap to be at the Grand Palace. The staff is very unhelpful and a has a special humor. I have booked with a lot of time in advance and the hotel doesn't care at all. The best of this hotel is the roof, there you have the best view of Bangkok. The staff of the restaurant at the roof is very nice and the food is delicious and no so expensive. But if you wanna relax there you will must to buy something. They dont make up your room.

Very good value, the room was very hot but there are other rooms with air conditioning for a bit more money. The fan room is good for those on a budget. The roof top area was lovely and had really nice views. Our room was cleaned and the towels were changed every day which was very much appreciated.

Not a bad hostel although quite far from the central attiractions. In the heart of China town it gives you the opportunity to explore the tiny backstreets with numerous street food shops & loads of old spare car parts! Not the glamorous part of the city. Tuk-tuk drivers were struggling to find the place but if you end up in Khoa San road after 8pm the river service is no longer in operation so that's pretty much the only way to get back. Unless you want to walk. Basic room but clean. Staff ok
