It's good for travellers that are only staying there a night. There isn't a good communal area so its hard to meet new people. We stayed there when when we first got to bangkok and it was ok. Bathroom was clean and hot water was provided. The rooms smell a bit funny but if your a traveller it won't matter too much. The location is good. Only a few meters away from kao San road.

Frosty reception [no smiles as the name implies) but the cleaning staff saved the day. Perhaps with a front desk shake-up I would stay again.


The hostel was in a good location near khosan road..but it was dirty, with hairs everywhere as well in the bed, in the sink. The stairs were dirty and the staff wasn't pretty much friendly. I don t think so I come back here an other time!!!


Good for the money that you pay...good location and nice staff...


Pretty boring hostel. One of our beds had bed bugs. People is not friendly and they don't help you at all.


The staff is rude and not helpfull and certainly not smiling. The room was old and ugly. The only good point is the fridge in the room. But for the same price in the same street we got a pretty and very clean room with a nice view in a clean and welcoming hotel. Pass your way!

This hostel was a little hard to find at first but only because there are so many Sawasdee named hostels in the area. The WiFi is advertised but is only available downstairs in the reception/restaurant area. Plus you only allowed 1 code per person. We had a deluxe room but it was TINY! We weren't too bothered by that as it had aircon and a TV. Although that didn't work. Great location for bars, restaurants and Koh San Road. Staff however....most miserable in all of Asia (surely).


Couldnt complain. We had our own room. Was comfortable. Its cheap so dont expect anything amazing but definitely would recommend if you want to be close to khoasan road. Only 5 minutes walk and still lots going on right outside as well. We had booked for 4 nights, but ended up staying a week. The restaurant staff were great aswell. Good cheap food and were always friendly


Service was terrible!! We had trouble finding the place but once we did the location is good enough. The room was avg but the main drawback was the manager and staff. Not helpful, you have to pay for using the computer, they give you different wifi passwords on slips and Warn you not to lose it, left luggage not free and worst of all, almost no communal space despite a giant empty restaurant which I repeatedly saw the manager kick people out of, despite the empty restaurant. OK for sleeping
