We booked a basic double room on Booking.com which said it included air con (the sole reason why we booked this place), however when we arrived we were told that we booked a "backpacker room" with no air con. They had no other rooms to put us in either when we said we would pay more for air con. The... More

I felt as though this place was somewhat overrated. However, the location was great. The hotel is down an alley from the main road, where you can whistle down a taxi within minutes. The sky train is about a 15 minute walk down the road and will take you anywhere you need to go. Definitely a pro. In terms of... More

Great hostel, we booked a double room for holiday trip with my dad, room was very clean, air con and TV with English channels. Very helpful and kind staff. The hostel is 10min away from the sky train station and from boat piers which makes it very easy to visit Bangkok! Definitely recommend the place!

I stayed at New Road Guest House for 3 nights, The staff was readily available and helpful. Wifi was good. The Dorms had lockers, outlets and the bathrooms were just outside. The hostel also had a cool rooftop area that we discovered on our last day. Super close to the river boat which made getting to sights like the Grand... More

We stayed in the NRGH for our first nights in Bangkok and we loved it. It is a bit away from the backpackers streets which is according to me an advantage. They offer organized trips in the Visit Beyond travel agency which is situated under the same roof.

The PROS: The front desk receptionist was very nice and helpful. She took the time to provide map of the area and samples of tours the hotel can arrange for you. And even though we arrived before official check-in time, we were given a room right away. Now the CONS: the windows in our room did not lock and the... More

This hostel was good, in an area called Silom which easily accessible by riverboat and bts. Buses also run on the road outside but I wasn't there long enough to figure them out! The ac is pretty awesome, in the rooms and common area. Staff were friendly and helpful with directions.

We booked our first night in the dorm. Since the ac was not working properly that night and we told them we were upgraded to a private double where we stayed our whole stay (than paying normal room rate). Location is convenient to the main pier and the skytrain station. It is kind of a long walk to chinatown or... More

I stayed there in the end of may for 2 nights. As I travelled with a friend, we chose the cheapest option: the two bedroom with fan instead of the dorm with the AC. It was extremely small (which is normally not a problem for me), but in this case it was even difficult to move our backpacks. The beds... More

Dear Traveller, We are happy you took your time to provide us with feedback on our property. - Not least that you found our staff friendly and liked our many common areas outside. We too really love the roof top terrace and the hammocks. As for your stay in our very cheap (thb 280) backpacker rooms we are sorry that... More
