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.

Great place in the modern part of Bangkok. Staff very nice and helpful!
I didn't like the place at all... it was to dirty and the staff wasn't friendly
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.
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.
I just wanted a cheap place, close to the BTS station and this place did the trick. I liked being able to do my own laundry, although the tumble dryer is extremely expensive so I draped my clothes over my bed. Not a great social area, but overall not bad if all you need is a bed for the night.
