We booked this place because it was close to Khao San Road and cheap. Although the price is obviously a huge draw, you don't really even get what you pay for. Our room was spacious and quiet, but we could only use half the bed because they didn't have a big enough not of wood to put under the mattress... More

What an interesting place. A fair way from the beaten track this place stood out to me because of its name. If I was to take a guess then I reckon half of the guests have actually overstayed their visas already. The young back packer working the bar also had no work permit. Dope (highly illegal) is on offer and... More

He is now on a quest to destroy the evil people that ask... More

Had a fantastic stay here, booked two days and ended up staying way longer, found everyone very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are what you expect for the price and the dorms having air con is a major bonus. The constant stream of kittens is something which can bring a smile to everyones faces, a note to anyone planning on... More

Im baffled by the negative reviews, felt almost personally insulted by some of those comments having had such an ace time there myself (from February - June 2013). Pants down to the snobby types that dont dare to venture beyond the 5 star 'luxury' hotels an turn their noses up to what is essentially a diamond in the rough! There... More
