A lovely place to stay at! Located in a nice are, very close to downtown. The loving room is very welcoming and there was this nice studious and friendly atmosphere. The staff was very helpful and really friendly. There are even a dog and a cat! The only downside is that the toilets are not THAT clean but I guess it can't helped when everyone is walking in with their shoes on when the floor has just been cleaned (but garbages tend to be full). It's only a detail, I'd come back.

A really cool place to stay at. Rooms are a bit small but the common areas are very wide and welcoming : it is a hostel made for you to meet people and not to stay in your room! There are lots of young friendly locals, it looks like a confidential lounge bar. The staff is very nice. The only downside is the elevator that cannot be used until 9am.... tricky when you have luggages!

Such a nice place to stay at. In an old 100 y.o. house, close to Gion corner and the beautiful Kiyomizu temple. The staff is very cool and there is a cool café that offers vegetarian food. The only downside is the sanitary facilities : you can find the shower boxes and Western style toilets on the ground floor only. On the first floor, you can only find Japanese style toilets which can be tricky when you are not used to it!

My second time at a Khaosan hostel and still loving it! We arrived on a busy busy Saturday afternoon (religious Sanja Matsuri at Asakusa) and planned to rush to the sentou (public bath) before visiting. The staff told us it'd be too short and asked for the cleaning team to get our room ready earlier so that we could use the showroom. That really saved our day!!! A 5min walk to the sentou and to Sensoji temple, you really feel like a local there ! Nice common room and lovely staff.

Tip1 : Bring your flip flop for the shower! Tip2 : When frontdoor is locked (past midnight for ex), slide the door to the right before sliding to the left! Lovely place to stay at! 10min far from Centrum and the station, so it's convenient. Nice view. The wooden deck has a warm atmosphere and breakfast is a real treat! The staff was nice and helpful but we could've gotten more infos about the frontdoor (see tip2) as we got stuck in the rain past 1.00am! Rooms are small but hey it's a boat!

Forget about hostels without souls, here comes the Victorian house! It's all made to be the most convenient for you: a lively pub, an ATM and private lockers in your rooms. The only negative point is about the bathrooms: it was very clean (cleaned up 5 times a day) but shelves were missing, it'd help us a lot with all our stuff. I'd totally recommend this hostel!

Thanks for the constructive feedback we'll look into putting more shelves in the showers. Kind regards

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in! Located in a nice residential area (20-25min by bus or 15min to Pl.Catalunya), brand new with sports facilities (free access! two pools, a sauna, solariums, dancing rooms, climbing wall, tennis courts etc etc), big clean rooms with AC, perfect for families, helpful staff... WHAT ELSE?

nice hotel, with large common rooms, very welcoming. a bit out of the way but in a calm area. nice staff though semi-broken english. think of the airport pickup: it saved my life! (though i had booked it only a few hours before i landed!). there are kittens !
