This place used to be a gem, But these days it's a tired looking dingy place, with crap wifi , smelly towels and stained sheets. The staff just manage to be friendly enough. There is now many better options in this area, and Riverline has obviously lost a few loyal repeat customers, including me now.its not as busy as it... More

Clean rooms good shower and a comfortable bed with air conditioning all for cheaper than some dorm beds. This place is good for couples on a budget. Also the rooftop makes this place standout from similar guesthouses situated in the same area

I had difficulty finding the place even after I had checked in and gone out again! The staff were very friendly and the room OK although the mattress was a bit hard. There is only WiFi downstairs too which was a bit annoying. The view from the roof of the river is great and you can sit down and relax... More

This place is the reason why I don't hate staying in Bangkok near KhaoSan Rd area. It's clean and comfortable, good price and friendly staff, but the best thing is it's location on a pedesterian alleyway which is very quiet. Also has a nice rooftop overlooking the river. I've been staying here each time I'm in Bangkok, with or without... More

Stayed here twice in my 6 week stay in Asia (beginning and end). At first, I found the beds as hard as a rock. By the end of my time in Asia, they were not the most uncomfortable thing I had slept on. Decent location, not far from Koh San and some other good market areas. Nice view from the... More

Stayed here for 5 days, overall a reasonable guest house which is clean and has lots of friendly faces. Nice and quiet at night which can sometimes be quite hard to find in Bangkok but within easy walking distance of Koh San road when you want to go out and find some bars! Rooms are clean and tidy and very... More

I stay at Riverline Guesthouse every time i'm in Bangkok. It's a ten minute walk from Koh san, which puts it at a reasonable enough distance away to keep it safe, quiet and comfortable. Wi Fi is available in most of the lower rooms, with the added bonus of having a viewing area on the top floor which is particularly... More

I visited Bangkok many times and as soon as I discovered Riverline guesthouse it became my favourite budget place to stay. It is not easy to find but it's worth it. The price is good, location is perfect, rooms are clean and staff is friendly. It is a budget place so don't expect miracles but rooms have private bathrooms, free... More
