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.

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
