After struggling to find a hostel with a good review I decided on Banjos
Great rooms, great rooftop bar, really helpful tour desk and staff. Only critisism if I had to make one would be you have to log into the wifi a lot as it kicks you out quite regularly. Stay here if you want a party hostel!!
I LOVED THE LOUNGE .It was by far one of the nicest hostels I have stayed in. Its very relaxed, great communal areas, if you want to stay in and watch a movie, you can do it, if you want to go out in Chaweng and party, the lounge will organise it. I did day trips with the hostel and thai cooking with Joy - AMAZING!Despite The Lounge being a little off the beaten track I thought the location was ace and everything was easy to get to. I WILL BE BACK! :)
The location is great as its a stone throw away from everywhere you need to be so to speak, however I didnt feel that the atmosphere was that friendly and being a single traveller this put me off. The wet rooms also has mosquitos in & once someone has used the shower the whole room is wet which makes using the wc a bit of a nightmare.
I loved Lub-d and if I had to stay in Bangkok again it would definitely be the first place in mind to book. The dorms are great with large lockers for a big bag and it's security is brilliant. There is a great vibe in the communal areas of an evening too. Thumbs up!!
