Staff asked if we wanted the sheets changed on arrival, who wouldn't?! AC in the dorm was good, top bunk inaccessible without climbing on lower. Mouldy ceiling tiles in bathrooms. Stray cats soiling communal areas. Strange place overall.

You get what you pay for but the atmosphere makes it up. Staff is the greatest and you'll make lifelong friends here. Very social and they host nice events most weekends. My go-to place in Bangkok, every time. Don't bother if you're allergic to cats or afraid of inflatable sword fights.

Interested into conversations about elephant-headed girlfriend, chilling with cats, cool staff, weird Japanese movies and meeting extraordinary people? If yes, than this is PERFECT place for you. The name has it purpose, coz it's kinda hard to leave this place. Emphasize: hard. See you soon I think ;) Hvala

Chilled out place. Great value for money, you get a bit more than you pay for. I'd not encourage it if you think that backpacking means staying in a 5 star hotel for you. ;) PS: Sorry for the late review @ the overstay folks. See you soon.

Amazing, original and friendly place! THIS place and all THESE people inside completely changed my mind! I've decided to get back there next year. This is definitely THE place you have to visit! I wonder how many cats will be there next year, haha

If you love drinking, meeting people, music (playing or listening), or smoking... this place is for you! From the bar and music room downstairs to the sheltered roof top, Overstay is great for getting you up and feeling great! I'll definitely be staying here everytime I'm in Bangkok... Especially for the cheap price of beds

All I can say is that The Overstay is the greatest place to stay over nights in Bangkok! I had often turned to this place every time I lost in Bangkok and I had never got tired of this place every time I was there. Cool crew, fabulous decor, and the kittens!!! A place to stay for young - and... More

If you want a place to sit up drinking and chatting rubbish with genuinely interesting and unique people while chain smoking and playing with kittens this is the place to go. I was recommended it by about five different people. It feels a lot more like a squat than a hostel, facilities are minimal (there is a kitchen tho!!!) but... More

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
