Secure, clean, tidy, hostel with great amenities. The location is a bit of a nightmare- you'll need to get the sky train everywhere which takes some time. Staff give very poor service- we asked them to book a taxi for us and they said yes, before telling us they hadn't managed to book one five minutes before it was due.


I spent my first three nights in Asia here and enjoyed my stay and felt very safe. The staff were the best! So helpful- I can't remember his name, but one of the male staff members at reception was very kind taking a girl from my room and I to Khao San road on his way home as apposed to taking a taxi. More importantly, he helped me book my overnight bus to Phuket and when I lost my ticket AND left me passport behind he sorted everything out for me. Very greatful! Would recommend

I stayed in a 4-bed female dorm for 8 nights and I had it to myself the entire time. I really appreciated this because I didn't have to worry about locking anything up. The location is a bit hard to find the first time. It was a bit far from everything, but nice because you got the feel of a real Thai neighborhood and could take a taxi or walk to the skyrail pretty easily.


Really nice hostel - a little out the way from the main hub but good transport links to centre and Kosan road just takes a little while to get there. A little tricky to find at first if walking but just get a bike or taxi from On Nut station only 50baht max and worth the money till you know where you are. Overall not a party hostel just a lovely chilled out place which is exactly what I was looking for.

Decent place to stay at, but a bit far from the city center. Clean rooms, but a little stinky in the bathroom. Overall good for the price.


It's a nice place with nice staff, it's close to On nut train station but it's not close to the party scene. On hostelworld it says that it has a kitchen and its true but the staff won't let you used it, it's just for them


230 baths 3 beds dorm with AC and swimingpool! You need something else? And also you have a kitchen good value for money.


We booked 2 days online & as soon as we arrived we requested to stay another 5 days as the rooms were good and there was a pool which was a bonus. This was just before Song Kran festival. A day before the beginning of the festival the moody lady at reception informed us we needed to check out as our room was booked out. She also done this to another guy in our dorm the same morning he was to check out!!We had to find another hostel on the busiest day of the year! getting soaked with our luggage


Worst location EVER! Don't be fooled.


The place is in the middle of no where and super inconvient, especially if your new to the city. Everything is atleast a 15min walk, including the nearest 7/11. Unless your going to the airport you can't get a taxi. Instead your driven in a doggy golf kart to the nearest main road and just wait to flag one down from the street corner with your bags. Not safe, not fun. Beds are nice and spacious and the location is quiet, but that hardly matters with the loud aircon.

Location is bad, hard to find and a 15 min walk to the station. Nothing else in the area apart from the station so be prepared to get sky train. Pool was out of order! Owner speak english but not very well. You have to get taxi motor bikes to and from hostel to help you out with the walk. Clean and safe hostel. Not great for meeting people as no common area. The hostel did the job but wouldn't stay there again. Next time closer to Khoasan Road is a must. Friendly staff and gold kart service
