I stayed here at my first night in Bangkok and it was a terrible experience. No sockets were working in the room. The room had about 20 beds yet no lockers. You should only go here if you're a hippie who doesn't care for cleanliness and safety at all.

This place is dark, humid and full of flies. I'm not usually one to complain, but if you are looking for a place to sleep - you will not find it here. A band started playing 02.00 at night (sounded like bad karaoke) and at 03.30 I was completely exhausted. As the rooms are just above the club and the... More

If you're in Thailand to experience the culture and see something new, then stay somewhere else. The Overstay is filled with Europeans looking to party and get wasted. The rooms are cheap for a reason, so expect a low level of hygiene and comfort.

The stuff was friendly. If you like party and kittens, you should choose this hostel. If you don´t like hippie style or party, you should find some other place to stay.I stayed in 16 bed dormitory room. It wasn´t bad, but It was always full. It´s better to get a lower berth.

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
