A smell of mould that you don't get used to. No windows so the mould is strong with this one. On the plus side the staff are great and the food is up there with the best indian food I have had. Easy to stay here to catch a bus from Kao San

The staff members are friendly and useful and I appreciated it. Of course, with the cheap price, one can't expect all the facilities of a 2-star hotel like cleanliness, strong wifi, huge bathrooms, etc.

room was small, had no window, dirty sheets, bathroom was at least an inch deep in water at all times. extremely noisy at night (noise was expected due to location but the walls were that thin that I felt they were in same room as me). on the plus side, staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the restaurant downstairs...

Whilst the guys running it were friendly enough and the location was right next to khao San road, it was very basic. The beds were rock hard, the rooms filthy in places and the WiFi unreliable. When we were told we had to move rooms due to overbooking, we were moved to one with water pouring through the ceiling and... More

Central, clean and friendly staff. free wifi, fairly cheap and right next to Khao san road, but not too close that you get disturbed by the noise stayed here twice, first in a shared dorm which was great and second in a private room which was a bit like a prison room but clean at least

We were put in a room facing the road. Even though this guest house isn't right on Khaosan, it is so close that we could hear everything. There was no aircon in our room and the fan wasn't strong enough to make any difference. The bed was rock hard, the walls and floors were dirty, they obviously hadn't been wiped... More

Good wifi: check. Good location: check. Helpful staff: check. The rooms are nothing to marvel at and quite small but the air conditioning works great. The beds are VERY hard, which I actually prefer but just a heads up. Last thing, the restaurant has some of the best Indian food I've ever had. No joke. If you do anything, at... More

This hostel is really well located and cheap. The staff were really friendly, the aircon was awesome and the wifi was fast. I would recommend it however the bed was super hard and the room we were in didn't have a window so I would just check these things before booking in again as other beds may have been better.

Rainbow was the first place I saw when I got out of the taxi at Khaosan Road. I tried a couple of places, and decided to come back to rainbow. It is a great location for the Khaosan road, yet far enough off it, for a comfortable night sleep. They served excellent Indian food, and my single road did the... More
