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!

DON'T BOOK! Thought I would try a night here despite the poor reviews. Lesson learnt, listen to the reviews. It smells aweful in this entire hostel, cockroaches everywhere, beds squeak, gave me sheets with a massive hole in it, staff was unfriendly, and its still like a half hour walk to koh San road. I left my stuff here walked to koh San found a room for only 50 baht more, went to grab my stuff from here but no refund was offered even though I didn't sleep here.
Good points: Friendly and helpful staff. Good price. Clean inside. Nice and quiet on the upper floors. However: Décor and atmosphere won’t suit everybody. Window ledge full of rubbish. Bedroom door too small for doorway. Bathroom door on my floor didn’t close (although there was another bathroom on the floor below). Bus information from airport incorrect (according to bus station staff). Even with map I found hostel difficult to find. Hostel a bus ride away from the main tourist sights.
This is the cheapest place in Bangkok. You get what you pay for. The people are nice, but the cockroaches and flies were not. The chairs were mostly broken, and the bar was inadequate. The building is quite a walk from most anything, except if you like walking, then you'll love this place. There was no door knob, only a pad lock, and the room was small, dirty, and I'm glad I brought my own bed sheets. If you have little or no money, this place would be perfect for you. Otherwise, don't.
Great value for on money for Bangkok. Hostel has a nice chilled out feel out it. I was late to check out but wasn't charged which was very nice from the staffs behalf. Location is abit far from the old city but is only a 10 minute bus ride away and the bus is only around 10 baht.
Nice place and laid back atmosphere, but you have to like a party scene. They have to do something about the mattresses in the dormitory though!
