I really enjoyed my stay there. The staff was so friendly and the breakfast was amazing. Khaosan Road is in walking distance. There are plenty of restaurants and convenience stores nearby. However, there is no metro or sky train around, so I need to take taxi for most of the time.

Stayed here twice! the location is a 10 min walk for khao san rd and has near by shops for all essentials. They provide bottled water everyday and an amazing free breakfast! (the best one ive ever had in a guest house). The staff are always around to help with anything and are all very friendly. Our room was cleaned everyday and was spotless, the facilities were great, in our room we had a sizable ensuite, fridge, TV and space to hang clothes. Excellent value for money!!


I have enjoyed staying in the hostel. The owner was really helpful, She helped me how to get to the nearby places. They served delicious breakfast ..I will stay here again someday.


Positive: Very central location, close to Khao San road and safe main street very close to the hotel. Good breakfast. Cleaning every day. Walking distance to the river and the main sightseeing. Negative: Staff not very helpful and explanatory. We ended up going to another hostel to take a map and being pointed out the main places.


The hostel is located in a quiet area near Khao San Road, breakfast is included and the staff is so friendly. The hostel is OK, but it doesn't have a very good atmosphere. I'd give it a 7 over 10.


10 minute walking distance from Khao San Road and the nightlife around it, very near to excellent cafe's and restaurants. Good breakfast, nice basic room and helpful staff - all with balconies, we stayed here twice. Note frosted windows did not have curtains or blinds, which isn't a problem but light sleepers may want to consider a blindfold. Thanks very much


We booked a ferry from Lanta to Phuket, but not at the hostel. When the company we booked at failed to pick us up from the hostel, we asked the hostel staff for help but they just ignored us. That was very poor of them. Otherwise good Hostel.


Great location within walking distance to Khao San Road. Staff were helpful. Had the bare basics with respect to a hostel and breakfast was decent considering it was included in the price.


Roof View Place is ok, but nothing special. It is located in a quiet street away from the noise of Bangkok, but it is close to Khao San Road and to the Chao Praya Express stop. If you are concerned about security, Roof View is an excellent option since there is always somebody at the reception and the main door is locked at night. The main negative point is the staff; info/ tours they suggest are usually more expensive than other tours you can find just walking around the neighborhood. Moreover


Our stay in Roof View Place was perfect. Really good value for money!!!

The location is not the best. I have been a witness to a gang beating some man outside of the hotel. The noise level is high (even tho the hotel itself is far from the main road) because motorcycles/taxis use this road to get quicker to the main road on the other side.W indows are of poor quality with fairly big gaps between them so you can hear all the noise coming from the outside. For the price you could easily get a room somewhere else.Rooms need to be painted as they are dirty. Great staff!


Good location and very friendly staff. Nice buffet breakfast. Wifi works well.
