This was a cool hostel and the staff were helpful. The only thing I would recommend is maybe making a small sign about sightseeing precautions. We got scammed outside the Grand Palace by a man who told us that the Palace was closed until 3:30. He put us into a tuk-tuk for a different tour which ended badly, and when we returned to the palace, it was actually closed and we never got to see it. Apparently this is a common scam, but it wasn't in the guidebooks or mentioned anywhere.
I stayed here twice on my trip in Thailand. It is one of the cheaper hostels you will find but that´s because it´s very far away from anything. But you can walk to take the boat to the temples. One staff member was great and one was very hard to communicate with. I asked him about trains and all he could tell me was go to the train station. But if you are not looking for a party hostel...this is definetly it. its clean and really nice. Although there should be a switch for the air conditioner
Lovely hostel, we arrived ridiculously early in the morning and they were full but let us sleep on two long cushions in the communal part - so needed! The guy was really helpful and friendly. Great location, near BTS so great for getting around and nice change from near Khao San road. Still a lot going on in the area with Patpong night market down the road and near Skybar. Didn't see any cockroaches either!
Had a great stay here for eight nights. Originally only planned to stay two but kept extending it. It's very close to the skytrain and the water taxis, which is great for getting around to all the sights. Bank at the front desk was very helpful. There's a nice open area on the first floor for hanging out - met quite a few people there. The rooms and bathrooms are kept very clean. Highly recommend staying here!
