Location is across the river from the city center (pub st, the alley, etc) but only a 5 minute walk. Tuktuk pickup from bus station was easy, and I used the same tuktuk for a tour the next day so all went well there. The dorm is nice, but be aware that lots of people awake up around 4:30-5:30 am to see the sunrise at angkor wat or to catch buses and you'll probably get woken up too. Bar and pool are great, showers were ok. Good wifi, was able to make an important Skype call.
Overall quite a nice hostel. The location is a bit far away from everything which means you'll end up spending more on tuktuks. The bar and pool area is great and everything was clean enough. Most people pass through pretty quickly so you'll probably meet new people every day or two is you stay for a while. The food seems a bit expensive, but it's about the same price as any place on the riverside.
Good location near thong lo bts and soi 38 street food. Beds are average, lockers are not in the room which was annoying. Not much atmosphere but the common area is all right and even has a kitchen that I believe you could use. Mixed age group, but mostly young people. For a solo traveler I would only recommend this place for a short stay, for everyone else it's a good choice.
Clean and modern hostel and lots of backpackers to meet and go out with. It's a bit expensive for the area, but it's nice enough that you feel like you're getting what you paid for. The staff are not unfriendly, but not especially helpful either. Getting places from Khao San Road can be very difficult with the traffic in Bangkok, so if you're trying to do things in other parts of the city prepare for a lot of long taxi rides or consider staying somewhere near an MRT or BTS stop.
Lots of cool people stay here when they visit Phuket, and the location is great, very close to all the main things to do in Patong and Bangla Road. It's a bit expensive for Thailand, but a good price for the area. The staff are chill and offer good advice about Phuket. Not a big fan of Patong, but I'd stay at Bodega if I ever came back!
This hostel has a very strange layout! I was in the 10 bed male dorm which is across the street in what is more or less a flat with 2 private rooms and the dorm. The biggest downside is there was only 1 bathroom/shower and a separate shower as some other people have noted. Kitchen was nice enough and clean overall. Also seems to attract a different crowd than most hostels, met people from Russia, China, Colombia, Spain here. They do offer a pub crawl if you want that, but it's not a party hostel
Big hostel with lots of rooms, but efficiently run. Location is pretty good, close to the u-bahn. The rooms are great, you can trust that Wombats will be good. The rooftop bar has a great view and cheap drinks and you'll find yourself getting sucked into good times easily if you hang around for a bit. Easy to do your own thing or even go to sleep early if you want too though. I'm a big fan of Wombats even though some people think they don't have the character of some smaller places.
A good party hostel in the middle of the red light district, the bar and patio was pumping every night! Also really nice beds and people in my room were respectful enough of people sleeping too despite partaking in various types of legal substance abuse, or maybe I was just chilled from the spacecake :) Good place for young backpackers like most St Christopher's.
One of my favorite hostels of all time, bigger than I expected, but the rooms are one floor up from the common areas so you can sleep if you want. The communal home cooked meals are amazing, had some great nights at the hostel bar, the pub crawl was amazing, the rooms were clean and the beds were solid and had power points, curtains, etc. I even had to give a toast on my last night. I didn't know what to say except it was simply the best.
Somewhere between a backpacker hostel and a camino albergue. There weren't too many people here as Zaragoza is not a big tourist destination, but there was a large family group that dominated the kitchen area and a couple of camino walkers in my room. Good for a night stopover though.
This was my first of many hostels and it was amazing as a solo traveler. I like the smaller hostels like this more than the giant ones. It creates a nice atmosphere and everyone gets to know everyone. Staff were quite friendly and helpful!
