It is a 15min walk from BTS. Customer service was good, the WIFI drops out ocassionally. Only one computer to use. The kitchen facility only had a microwave and toaster with cultery. The 8 bed room was cozy and clean with comfortable mattress. The laundry is coin operated but expect to have your cloths go missing from the line. The bathroom only 3 toilets and 3 showers for the entire place. Only 1 working PC to use.
The VX is a great hostel with lovely staff. There are great touches like hair dryers and straighteners in the bathroom, or a iron and ironing board. Also the bowl of free fruit is a really nice touch. My only issue is with the water dispenser. The water from there has a plastic and unpleasant taste. Otherwise everything is good! And very clean!
Great hostel, AC in the room, kitchen and common room, across the street is a great place for lunch. A little bit far from the centre but there are ways to get there so that is not a big problem.

I moved to here to leave the tourists and reduce my prices. I extended several days as I found it to be comfortable. Nice areas to socialize, refrigerator, toaster oven, sink, washer & dryer (coin-op) all provided. Free tea and coffee and limited fruit. Convenience store and local food within one minute walk. Large store, food markets and MRT (elevated train) about ten minutes walk. I would return if in the area again.
On arrival we were split in two different rooms despite selecting beds in the same room. The woman on the front desk was incredibly rude and unhelpful - she refused to book a taxi for us meaning we had to try and flag one down at 4 am to catch our flight and she also didn't have any change when we checked in so made us sort out money to give her the exact amount - luckily we did have some change! Also, there are only 4 toilets and 4 showers for all the dorms on both the second and third floors.
The hostel is really nice, clean, with modern common rooms. Beds were very comfortable and I had the best sleep. Location far from the centre, expect to spend money on BTS. The minus was the older lady at the reception: she wasn't nice at all. She gave us only 1 key for 3 people, but did not tell us you need the key even if you just go to the toilet - so we had to wake up each other for the keys at night.. Charged me 10THB per 2 copies of A4 - IMO overpriced. Other staff was nice.
Decided to stay a few more days, fantastic hostel. Dormitories are extremely nice and it is so cheap. The main draw is the people, best atmosphere and nicest/most interesting travellers i have met so far. I highly recommend, especially because of the staff, i had money problems and we sorted it out so that i could pay at a later date and it was so reassuring as i am travelling solo.
Had a very nice stay. Staff was helpful and very friendly. Nice and clean hostel. It was too bad it was quit far from all of the slightseeing spots, shopping, bars, etc. Skytrain walking distance but for everything else you have to take a taxi or skytrain(s).
The older woman at the front desk was extremely unhelpful and bordering on rude. The hostel is perfectly nice but in the wrong location for basically anything other than proximity to the metro.
