My favorite hostel in BKK! I've stayed here for over a month and still don't want to leave! Great staff, easy to meet likeminded travellers and expats, awesome graffiti all over the place. Bar located on the ground floor has instruments you can jam on in the day and sometimes live bands/djs play in the evenings. The atmosphere in the... More

I guess it's called The Overstay because that's what you do, I came for only one night but ended up staying for two. Definitely the coolest place I've ever stayed and I doubt you'll find anywhere with a better atmosphere and unique vibe. Felt like sleeping in my favourite rock club back in England, interesting friendly people, super helpful staff,... More

A place to meet great artists! The atmosphere is amazing. Also close to meet many friendly locals, not like in the tourist areas. When you like it basic and don't have a problem with cats, highly recommend.

When you first walk into the Overstay it is easy to see the atmosphere of the place. The walls are covered in giant murals of every different caliber, from Naked one eyed ladies, to Giant hooded Aliens, to robots dancing in a line. Every inch of the first floor has something interesting to look at, and as you explore the... More

This is a strange hostel - it is definitely a strange mix of bar and hostel - you're not in for a quiet night!! Also there seems to be a number of people living there for long stretches! Rooms are very basic and the toilets are not somewhere you'd want to spend a long time. Having said that, the staff... More

This place is not a hostel nor guesthouse. Its more like a squat house. Constantly full of flies and smells bad. The beer is overpriced for the type of place this is. Plus half the artwork on the walls looks like its been done by people who have never picked up a brush or can of paint in their lives.... More

This is a must place to stay whenever you are in Bangkok. It is not the cleanest hostel but satisfactory! That hostel have bar that can open most of the time, sometimes all day and night and its very convenient when you want to drink beers at anytime because Thailand's laws prohibit serving alcohol from major stores like 7 &...

We stayed here because we were recommended to by a friend, so we knew what we were getting into, a cheap, artistic, creative hostel that has great staff. This is what we wanted so we found this place instead of the usual Khao San road malarkey. We arrived at 6am and spent 3 hours talking to the staff (we were... More

the Overstay may not be a glamorous boutique hotel but it certainly boasts a creative, laid back atmosphere inspirational for artists and musicians. Almost every surface is covered in paintings and there are instruments, a gym and a pool table not to mention friendly staff behind the bar.
