My friend and I were staying there for one night and to say it in advance it was a really nice place. The rooms are tidy, the staff is friendly and helpful and the toilets/bathrooms were clean. The only down-point here is that the bedrooms were comfortably "cold", but in the corridor and in the bathrooms it's nearly as hot... More

Only staying in Bangkok for 1 night before our flight home, we really enjoyed this hostel. Came with free breakfast, as well as the staff went above and beyond to help you out. A little hard to find at first, the staff has a mini map with directions written in Thai for you to give your taxi drivers to help... More

It was my first time staying in a dorm type accommodation and I'm glad to have chosen this place. I sent them a text message the day I'm arriving to ask if my reservation is confirmed since I received an email from them that they can't charge my card. I received a reply 3 minutes after that although they can't... More

Having spent more than a week at Niras I can honestly say It has been one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. From the very first moment I had a warm welcome, the girls are very efficient and most of them speak good English and best of all, they are all pretty :-). Prices are average for... More

I ended up in a six bed dorm with only one other person so it was very quiet. The room was very clean and tidy as no shoes allowed and huge lockers. Bathrooms were right by my room so practically ensuite, they were also always clean. Towels provided. Staff were helpful, they provide notes to give taxi drivers as they... More

We booked this hostel months before our arrival, yet somehow they double booked the room and we lost out. After much discussion they agreed to give us a full refund and then we booked a dorm instead. The staff didn't seem to know what was going on. The hostel was clean and the dorm pretty nice. In the end we... More

Niras is our favorite hostel in Bangkok. The girls running the hostel are friendly and accommodating to all guests questions. Breakfast set is reasonably priced for 135 baht, and laundry is a steal. Located near many of Bangkok's famous temples, it's our home away from home. Book a week or so in advance, because it fills up; we recommend Niras... More

Old rustic, wooden design to the interior of the hostel whilst not compromising quality doing so.

Niras bankoc hostel is a great place to stay in bangkok. It is very central and we enjoyed the 20-30min walk to the main attractions such as kings palace, wat pho, wat saket and golden mount (go there-it's a 2min walk from the hostel and for 20baht entrance fee you get an amazing 360•view over the city).
