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.

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.
