This is the perfect place to stay if you’re looking to be close to all the action, but would like a quiet and clean place to go back to at the end of the night. Very well located, close to Khao San Road and Rambuttri, within seconds a 7 Eleven and loads of places to eat. The hostel was very clean and the rooms were set up so that you had good privacy. Staff was excellent, very friendly and made a point at remembering your name (perks of a smaller hostel). I would highly recommend as a quiet stay

Great hostel very close to Khao San Road. Friendly staff, clean room and good air con. Only thing I'd change is having a curtain to cover the door/window in the private room. It was quite bright everytime someone came upstairs to their room.
