Location is great and near the bts skytrain which makes it more accessible anywhere in bangkok. The bad thing about this is the shared bathroom, coz if you're on the 2nf flr, you have to go up the 3rd flr. So before booking, if you can, request to be put in the 3rd floor rooms. Besides this everything is good.
Its a place to stay and it s cheap ! ! Wifi works in room too . There are six floors ! No elevator ! But good exercise for girls .. The staff is really kind and patient .. Still , would recommend this hostel
We had a room on the 6th floor in a dorm. There was no elevator. The facilities were 3 floors down. The room wasn't clean. We had ants in our luggages it was discusting. And from 1 to 5 pm, they cut the AC in the room so it was very hot and humid. Also, there was a rat chilling in front of the hotel. We were disappointed. The advantage of this place was the location close to the skytrain and Pat Pong market.

Great little hostel, especially if you don't want to stay in Kho San road! Right near patpong and the mrt and subway
The hostel receptionist, Ms. Pi, is very attentive to my needs and very helpful to all my inquiries. As to the location of the hostel, I give an excellent mark because it is very near to the bts skytrains and to the bars as well. The comfort rooms were cleaned often. The common bathrooms are supplied with free liquid shampoo and soap so I don't need to buy my supplies at 7eleven. The hostel is very budget friendly.
A fine hostel because of its location and value for money.
We splashed out on a double room and it was worth it, the room was big, clean and the wifi connection was good. Location-wise it's a bit further from the river and Wat Pho etc than some other places but it's walkable. Would definitely recommend it.
So if you dont go on the toilets or having a shower its not too bad

The wifi only worked on the main floor and it was quite a trek up and down the stairs to reach it. The location was really the only great thing about the place, while everything else was average or a bit above it.
Just a good basic hostel. The Stuff is very very nice!
The staff was the best, very friendly and helpful young women. The worst were the rats, at night we could here them scurrying through the walls. Facilities were fine but more bathrooms would have been nice.
It was a nice stay, recommended for couples or people who are not there just to meet people. It's old, but old has a charm for me.
Liked it very much! Stayed there for quite a few days. It is in the business district so you have anything you need around. Lockers in the room. Clean. And staff was super nice with anything you may need. Also very good to meet other travelers. Note: Dorm is on the last floor (6th). Would definitely recommend it!
The hostel is good, receptionist is nice. I will come back this hostel.
Great hostel, there are only two flaws: one is the lack of elevator, which makes it difficult for customers with heavy luggage to carry them to their room. Secondly, the policy against guests can be an inconvenience if no double rooms are available and someone like myself has a Thai girlfriend who might want to spend the night with me. There doesn't seem to be a way round this like paying a little extra to let them stay in your room.
I stayed in a private twin ensuite. It was decent. Valued for money. Bathrooms are ok. They provided shower gel and shampoo. It's pretty handy. Location is definitely a plus. Especially you are travelling alone and need to be close to public transport. Wifi is stable. You can do your last minute research and contact anyone. Some people skype with their friends on their iphone for quite long. Mix dorms are on higher level. So be prepared. Overall it's good and decent.
Lovely place. Great location by all the nightlife but still, miraculously, quiet. Strong WIFI, good security, clean facilities and VERY helpful staff - they really go out of their way for you!! Would highly, highly recommend.
Friendly and helpful receptionist. We stayed for 2 days and very enjoyed the experience with the Urban Age.
