Print all the guides the hostel sends you, getting by taxi can be really difficult. Besides that, it is great!
Enjoyed my stay. Super clean, comfortable. Nice staff. Spoke excellent English. Quite helpful. Answered all questions easily. Common rooms are not ideal as they don't encourage socializing, which I look for as a solo backpacker. But that'd be my only complaint of this good and cheap hostel.
Great hostel in a great location. Couldn't have asked for me for the price. Its super convenient to MRT stop and close enough to most nightlife areas so a cab ride home is less than 100 baht. Quiet, clean and relaxing. Definitely nice for those who don't want to be far from everything BKK has to offer, but would also like a glimpse of local culture as its tucked away in a residential neighborhood.
will definitely return. Helpful staff, free water and clean, secure dorm rooms.
The hostel was really clean with great facilities (free water and tea/coffee!) The droms were more spacious than many I've been in in SE Asia and there was a cool chill-out room. The location might be a bit far away from Khaosan Rd etc. but at least it's near a subway stop.
Staff, facilities and cleaniless are, oh my god soo good! The location isn't the right thing for everybody I'd say...
Helpful staff....this location is very local and not very touristy.....I stayed here because I had early flight and hostel was fine and cheap....absolutely the most uncomfortable beds I slept in for a month in Thailand....
quite a nice place to stay in Bangkok, for the first time, it's a little bit difficult to find, coz the hostel locates in a small alley, but once u get there, u'll find it's only 5 mins walk to the MRT. the staff here are nice and helpful, on the wall they stick a lot of information of this city, I quite enjoy my staying at this hostel.
Not a bad place to stay, out of the way a bit from the touristy areas but easily reachable by the Metro during its opening hours - and the hostel gives you a business card with the directions in Thai for any moto/taxi meters you might take. Still, orient yourself with the city in case they take you to some 'gem shop' or 'sexy massage' accidentally on purpose. Big friendly roaches are there to greet you on the street at night, so wear shoes if you don't like bugs.
just about 2 km away from heart of bangkok and near mrt station i already booked second my staying there
A very clean, hospitable place to stay. Large common area complete with open mat, TV, and 4 free-to-use computers. Free ice cream and tea definitely a big plus. Unfortunately, the hostel is in a bit of a bad place -- near a river of sewage (which smells horrid after the rains) and near 2 aggressive neighborhood dogs who'll growl at you and give you a good scare.
