Worst hostel I never stayed at because if was a total dump. The reviews give this place wayyy to much credit. Trap houses are better than this place. I don't even want to waste my time listing everything bad about this place! DO NOT GO HERE! You are honestly better off sleeping on the steps of a 24hr 7/11 store!


Probably the worst hostel I've ever stayed in. Everywhere dirty, on the website they say that it's with air conditioning but it isn't. During night very loud music so you can't sleep. The people where nice though, but it looked more like a home for homeless people...


Overstay is still one of top 5 favorite hostel I had been to. Been to Overstay few times and never get too old. I would recommend Overstay to add few fans in common room since it will be very hot and sweaty during daytime when A/C is off. I am so happy that Overstay finally add A/C in dorm bed! WIFI is good.


It is what it is... what it comes down to is that people come to stay here and don't really leave. doesn't mean they're happy it just means they don't leave. Bring your own pillow, sheet, towel, ear plugs, fan, and maybe a flashlight. sometimes the power goes out. sometimes the water stops running. By sometimes i mean a few times a week. Some people sleep on the roof. One saturday there was a band that played covers of the black keys and the arctic monkeys another night it was horrible kareok


The graffiti when first walking in is pretty cool. The staff were rather friendly, all enjoying a smoke and drink in an extremely laid back atmosphere. Unfortunately this is just about the best thing this place has to offer. I've stayed in many hostels across the world and am by no means fussy...whatsoever. People say you get what you pay for but for a little extra, guest houses on Khao San Road are clean. This is a place for people REALLY strapped for cash wanting to live cheap and dirty.


NO security, our room was missing a window, there was just a hole in the wall, anybody could just get inside, the doors didn't lock, there was just a mattress on a dirty floor, sheets were not clean, i have never seen more horrible place to stay in my life, and i travelled quite a lot. that's definitely not what you expect to find in the capital unless you really don't care where you stay, it's true that they're the cheapest. until the early hours there were concerts in the common room, v. loud


crazy, fucketup,brilliant, had a excellent time in the overstay :-) cheers


Very nice atmosphere, if you stay there you gonna meet a lot of people! But little bit far and party hostel ! So as you want ! Very friendly staff ! Cheers


The price you pay is too much for what it's worth. The people who live there are ok, but it is impossible to sleep here. At 4am we were awake because of the loud music playing in the room next to us. I like Cats' but they were everywhere, they started crying in the hallway at night. The rooms are dirty and the beds are no good. It's a good place to meet people and go for a drink, but a no go for sleeping!
