The worst hostel I ever been. It is ruined, dirty, and ugly. There is no water in the last floor not wifi. And it is not confortable.

u get what u pay for if it comes for cleanlines&rooms, but the receptionist could be a bit helpful,friendly or welcoming. When I walked in, he didn't want to give me the price I'd found on hostlworld but asked to book online...however denied giving me wifi password! Then when I was late for my flight, he denied printing my boaring pass but made me look for cafe internet:/ Note: they want to charge u for luggage room even if u stay 1h after check out. Cheap place in great location -just to sleep


Staff is unfriendly, not helpfull. Within three days bathroom and sleeping room wasn't cleaned. Showers are not to use, because the water is not running away.

You get what you pay for. That's a super cheap hostel, so you shouldn't expect anything supernatural. But generally it was good. The location is great, 5 min walking from Khao San road, but still not noisy. Our taxi driver couldn't find the place, but if you download the map before it won't be that difficult. My friend and I were staying in a double room, which had 2 huge beds and an aircon. It wasn't super clean, but i wouldn't say it was that dirty. There were 2 bathrooms on the floor.


Booked 2 nights, only stayed 1. Did not recieve the correct room we booked online. Saw a man steal keys from the drop box. Staff was rude and uncompromising. Would never go back.

The staff are unfriendly, but good location. 5 mins walk to khao San road.


The place was ok. The place was note that clean, they treat you like they just want your money.. But the place have wifi and a cheap bed. For the price was ok the experience...


Todo bien con la habitación, aire acondicionando funcionando, el agua caliente no funcionaba pero con el calor no fue necesario. Muy buena ubicación. No hay internet en las habitaciones, solo en el lobby.


This is by far the worse hostel I have stayed in South East Asia. I had bed bugs in my bed and I had to sweat to make them change my room. The hostel is filthy, it stinks and the staff working there is not friendly nor helpful. Do not go there, spare yourself a bad experience!


1.- Between Good and Excellent should be another category ej. Very Good 2.- It doesn't have the real hostel spirit that most people look for, it's obviously a group of people that is focused only in making money. Pity.


Did the job.

aircon not working in the dorm. building quite old and not really clean at all, specially in the 4th floor. slow internet wifi, and only in reception, and only for facebook and emails webpages


some girl at reception really rude


Dirty. Dirty. Dirty. Matress lined up on the dorm floor. Water pressure like piss and no hot water. Depressing atmosphere. Even if its cheap. There are better places for the same money.


one guy on reception was a champ and was very friendly and helped us alot, the rest... pretty average.. private shower didnt have hot water and they wernt so happy about dealing with it, room was quite small and bathroom area smelt funky, lucky we had a communal one just outside our door, so we just used that.. other than that, you got what you paid for, decent stay really. good lacation if you want to be in the heart of the backpacking area


The room was so small and tiny that its door couldn't even open totally and once we get in we found an huge dead cockroach in the toilet. The cleanliness of the room was poor and the furniture very essential (which was ok annyway because we didn't expect much at that price!). Our door didn't have the hook for the padlock but we could store our belongs safely and for free just behind the counter in the hall.
