Close enough to kao san road and its parties to have fun (5/10 min by cab) and far enough to take it easy and relax in a quieter area

Is there anything anyone can say except ''wow!''. This place was so fantastic, we ended up there for another 3 nights at the end of our trip. The owner and all the ladies that work at the front desk were simply amazing! Everyone was kind, helpful and the hostel was in the best state I've seen in Thailand so far. Clean, spacious, great communal space, excellent (FREE!) breakfast... Seriously, there are no words to describe how amazing this place is. Say here, really!


Great hostel with really friendly and helpful staff and family atmosphere. Easy walking distance from kosan road but quiet and chilled away from the craziness! Would definitely recommend!!


Nice local place with authentic charm and good vibes in perfect quiet location


Great location if you don't want be be right in the party scene, only a short drive in a tuk tuk to the main bars. Also lots of great street food around, and the breakfast included was nice. Staff were absolutely lovely, would stay again.


One of the best hostels so far. The english if the desk lady is as good as it gets here in Thailand. And very friendly staff!

Nice place to stay in Bangkok! I recommend!


Although you have a shared bathroom (stayed in a private room) there are many toilet stalls and private shower stalls which means you don't have to wait for anyone. Breakfast is included which was really good, the staff are super friendly and make you feel at home. I would definitely come back here as it was really worth the money and it is away from the busy part of Koh San road.


Great location, nice staff, shared bathrooms are clean. Room was small, sheets ok . Be aware what you're booking, "air" means fan. It has to say "air-con" to have an air conditioner and you have to pay more to upgrade upon arrival.


The staff were the friendliest people we met in Bangkok and the map and directions given to us as well as help booking our train tickets were invaluable. Breakfast was very good quality too.


Great hostel not far from Ko San road. Be warned though we took the airport bus they have advertised on their front desk which guarantees delivery to either airport in under 1 hour. It took nearly 2 hours as they went to both airports instead of just 1 as advertised... We were very close missing our flight.


Great hostel, good facilities, very clean, very helpful staff, free bfast. Not quite walking distance from Kho Sahn Rd, etc. but very cheap in a Tuk Tuk. Only real downfall was that it was very quiet with not much atmosphere or opportunity to meet other travellers. We were there in off season so it's probably better in high season... altho still doesn't really strike me as a party hostel. If you want that, then try closer to Kho Sahn Rd.


Lovely little guesthouse in a prime tourist area. Staff always smiling and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.
