In quuite a random location but close to the station so very easy to get around the city. Nice clean dorms, very squeaky beds though! The kitchen and computer facillities are great. And the free ice cream is delicious!!!


Security was fine in general, but sliding glass door on balcony in our room was broken on the right hand side (had come out of the frame) and could be slid open by anyone on the balcony which was easy to get to from other rooms and the fire escape. Would be nice to have the A/C on in the kitchen/seating area during the day as there wasn't a cool place to just go and relax.

The hostel is very good and very welcome for me but the bed is very hard. And when I'm coming for the first time many hair in the floor and bathroom. But I'm very like the coconut ice cream. That's very delicious.

The staff are very accommodating and very helpful! One of the best hostel...very clean!


I stayed in four hostels in Bangkok and there are a most strong Thai spirit. There are main problem: the hostel are locate just in 3 minutes from MRT station, but the path in the dark is not a pleasant. For someone it's could be a problem. And of course the one item that you will remember... the free ice cream! :)


Great staff, couldn't do enough to help! Great information about Bangkok and transport etc all around the hostel.


Location is a bit of a pain, but the facilities and staff make up for it entirely


Unusual location which is definitely off the beaten path, but absolutely top facilities and a lot of free services on offer. Very clean with cleaners who where constantly cleaning the kitchen. Ensuite bathrooms also. Excellent value for money.


Great staff, good neihborhood and facilities. Would recommend this to a fellow backpacker

They had lockers which was nice. Internet was often unavailable and when it was available, it was quite slow. It was located pretty far out from anything, including edible food. The surrounding area felt unsavory and did not smell very good at all. Pretty much your run of the mill hostel aside from the location.


is a very good hostel, unfortunately no good location very far to the old city but very close to train, bus and sky train stations!!!Staff very friendly with accurate informations. Coffee, Tea and ICE CREAM free!!!!
