I would highly recommend this place if you hate yourself. The "beds" are box springs, not mattresses. I had to use half my blanket to pad the bed. Woke up aching everywhere! I'm 5'1 and couldn't sit up in the bed as beds are REALLY low! Laundry done from evening till 1am compounded with screaming kids at 6am = NO SLEEP. They charge for everything (ie. 10baht to help you call a cab; same for water). Staff members give zero F's. WiFi works half the time. "Common area" set up mostly for staff use.

For a "no frills" hostel, this is good for a night (two tops) if you're desperate. Located on a VERY busy road; be on 120% alert when crossing. Night club nearby, can hear and feel music vibration even with ear plugs. Smaller ppl forced to take top bunk. False sense of privacy with blinds. Gaps around entire bed. Six beds connect so you feel everything when anyone moves! Male guests like to be shirtless for some reason. I would not stay here again. PS, bring your own lock

Some long term dwellers make this place a little uncomfortable as they treat the dorm like their own home. Beds are spacious compared to other hostels (double instead of single), but mattress is very thin (3"). The common area is bare with fairly uncomfortable seating. Security is good with smart technology. Very close to transit, super market (which has foreign currency exchange), & street food. The owner is a super nice guy.

They ran out of beds so I was upgraded to the capsule hotel. The staff members at both places are amazing! Incredibly friendly and helpful. Bed was clean and very comfortable with rollers shades for privacy. The roller shades have a small gap so bring eye shades. WiFi connection is excellent. TV and headphones in each capsule. AC is on high enough to make sleeping comfortable. Minutes from public transit. I would definitely stay here again even though the capsule hotel is a bit pricey.

6 min walk from the ferry terminal - great place if you're arriving really late (I arrived at 3:30am). Staff members here are AMAZING. Bed was clean and comfortable. WiFi was pretty decent; excellent connection when working, occasionally cuts out. Only complaint is the damn roosters in neighbouring area in the morning! But the staff members are so great I'd stay here again. Bring industrial earplugs and some eye shades!

Echoing the comments of other reviewers. Not sure why this place has such high ratings! The dorm is crammed w/ no privacy and one dingy fan to circulate air flow (no AC). Not enough sockets in the room to charge electronics. WiFi is horrendous & unreliable! We spent hours trying to book something online w/ no success as the WiFi kept cutting in and out. The female staff were more helpful than the male staff. Furniture are super worn. Washroom not cleaned daily & toilet paper runs out often!

The check in was quick and they upgrade your booking if a better room is available. I stayed in the single room. The staff members are nice and helpful. International electrical outlets in the room; WiFi is a bit weak in the room but stronger near room door. Quiet street at night but the business nearby start early; earplugs will cancel all the noise. Lots of restaurants on the street. I'd stay here again. PS, public transit is much cheaper, do not cab here

Some of the staff were helpful. The location is central but it's on a busy street so it's VERY noisy! Not only do you hear street noise, you hear everything in the hallway and upstairs even with ear plugs. The place is constantly FREEZING and heaters either don't work or barely work. The washroom for our room was in the hall

Dear Guest, I regret that you were not satisfied with the service provided. Yes, one the nights the heater in your room did not work. We called the service company and now it is fixed. Temperature is kept between 20 and 21C. The washroom was outside your room, because that is the room you reserved. Most rooms are ensuite., Next time I urge you to reserve one of them. If you are ever back in Chile, please come see us, we will try to make things right. Regards

The location is good but this is a walking city so, personally, I don't think it matters too much which hostel you stay at. I found a dead bug under my covers (not a bed bug), my bed was a little damp, and the washrooms are clearly not cleaned daily (but they weren't gross). The place was always freezing; they have extra blankets in the rooms. Showers are always hot. Some of the staffs were very helpful and made excellent recommendations. Breakfast was great.

The staff are very helpful and welcoming. Certainly appreciate that beverages are sold in the hostel (at market rate). The washrooms are VERY clean; it looks like they're cleaned a couple times a day and trash is removed several times thoroughout the day. My only complaint is the cleaning staff went through the stuff I left on the floor and threw out what she thought was garbage.

The staff are the only good thing about this place. They are extremely friendly and more than helpful. The room and beds are damp, some of the outlets were not working, the washroom facilities (not the cleanliness) were atrocious with enough warm water for maybe 5 mins then it becomes cold (but not freezing). They serve you marble cake every morning which is odd.

Booked this hostel for 2 nights a couple months in advance. A week before we were to arrive, they emailed us saying they would be closed for one of the 2 nights we booked and asked if we still wanted the one night there, transfer both nights to their sister hostel for the same price (which had poor ratings), or get a refund. We opted for a refund and they directed us to hostel world instead which DOES NOT issue refunds for the deposit. No explanation as to why they suddenly closed for 1 night.
