Unforgettable hostel! Very artistic! It was expiriense for us!


Dirty, hot and unorganised hostel. Usually I don't mind 'roughing it' in a hostel but this was a step too far. Facilities were shocking and the staffs attitude was evident when we asked for something as simple as a map and got told that they couldn't give us one, but didn't ask us where we were going or if he could help. Could not recommend this lowly enough.

if you are looking for a fancy place to stay paying 3 euros per night you are doing it wrong. Perfect for open mind people and travellers with a short budget like mine.:) Nice staff. Definitely coming back in my next stopover in Bangkok. If you don't like cats you better stay somewhere else ;)

I met loads of crazy people, rocked my socks off for two nights in a row and enjoyed the authentic Thai neighbourhood with tasty street food during the day. The staff and all the residents were very friendly and kind, thanks guys! But bear in mind that this is not a place to go and have a peaceful night sleep after a long day of taking duckface selfies in front of Bangkok tourist attractions. Overstay exists in it's own dimension and you have to be willing to step out of yours in order to enjoy.


They stay was ok, but it would be better, if the toilets and upper shower were repaired. Thank you.

Nearly all of the staff are fun and friendly westerners that enjoy having a good time. They are more than willing to help you get around the city or invite you along to Khao San Rd. The prices for drinks are reasonable. The place meets all basic needs but there are drawbacks such as no ac anywhere in the building and you need to take busses or taxis to get anywhere. the atmosphere more than makes up for these inconveniences. Worth a stay for younger and basic living people.

Without a doubt the most disgusting hostel I've ever stayed in. Cats, urine, food, flies. Bohemian and back-packer friendly doesn't mean dirty and disgusting. Sadly, I even met the owner. The fact is it's just poorly run without sheets on the beds, minimal air flow, no air conditioning... just not sufficient.


100% good place to stay if you want to make friends. Fun staff. Free-style hostel. Lots things to do – drink and smoke in the bar just downstairs, play chess or just play with cats. Artists can paint something on the walls, apparently, and find like-minded people. The house itself is very spacious, roof floor with a small garden, and the kitchen where U CAN COOK FOR YOURSELF (just vegetarian food) or get some food from the staff occasionally)
