Nice hotel with friendly staff and great location, 5 to 10 minutes walk from a BTS and a MRT station. Not quite as cheap as some other hotels in which I stayed, but still affordable and good value for money. I much preferred staying in the Silom area to the Khao San area, for the transport links. I also recommend going to Sala Daeng Street, Soi 2 (close to Sala Daeng BTS station), which has plenty of restaurants and stalls at lunch time, which appear to cater more to Thais than tourists.


It was quick an easy both check in and check out. many would say that it is dirty, well no it isn't at all it's just old a bit not well maintained i guess. over all i would strongly recommend if you need to stay aroud that area.

Thank you for visiting our hostel. ^-^


I stayed in this hostel (more like a guesthouse actually) with a friend and we had a great time. For sure there are hostels with more and maybe better facilities. But when you are in Bangkok you pretty much use the hostel for three things: sleep, shower and laundry. Wifi very good btw. I would give a "very poor" in cleanliness if I see a rat running around or a few bugs.. So this place is pretty ok. Shower: slightly warm, but nice. Wouldn't recommend it for people that wants to meet people.


Do not stay here unless you want to be eaten alive in bed. I ended up getting lymes disease from one nights stay and I had my own liner! Enough said!


The Siamese Twin Room is quite big and nice, but only one shared bathroom+toilet on the floor. Great location and 5-minute walking distance to BTS station.

So sorry about your feeling. We will prove our hostel as your commend. ^-^ ^-^ ^-^


This hostel is a little bit far from Saladaeng BTS, it's about 10-15min by walk. If u want to book dormitory room, it means u must stay on 6 floor and go there without elevator! I think this hostel must clean the room regularly, because when I came there, some guests also dissapointed with dirtyness. But at least, the staffs were helpful enough and I got some friends too.


The Hostel is located in the center of the night market and all the ping pong shows. It is ok to stay here for couple nights but longer term will be uncomfortable. You will walking 4 - 5 story high by stairs. To get to the food place you will have to walk through the night market. The staff is ok, bed prices changes everyday, beds are broken, pillows are hard rock, bathrooms are outside of the rooms. 65% of the facility is either broken or missing. You only pray for good night sleep here.

Actually all of the hostel around Silom area have dormitory room on the 4th-6th floor. We have the promotion price everyday ,it is depend on which day of the week. But we will specific clearly on the booking website ,not up or down without reason. If any facility is broken ,the guest can let the staff know and change or fix it.


This hostel is really inexpensive. It is just 5 minutes walk away from BTS Sala Daeng station, but it will be a little difficult to find the alley. The entrance of the alley is just at the opposite of CitiBank. There are many gogo bars and vendors around the hostel. Wifi is also good. However, the facilities are not well maintained. If you just need a place to sleep but nothing else, you can choose this hostel.


Very good location, good price. Place could be a bit cleaner (rooms) but for the price a very good option. Distance to BTS station Sala Daeng is also good.


Nice location in Silom but hard to find initially. Nearby to everything, including Patpong Weekend night market.
