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

The place is ok, in front of Kaosan road, rooms can be hot for those without air con. But me and my friend have been robbed in a private room locked, Our money was in bags and hide, but not enough for them. It can be only the staff who could come into the room. After 4 mounth travelling through... More

We were only staying here one night, but we got a good enough idea of what this place is. It is cheap, good location and wifi. Clean enough and air con worked. But reception is the restaurant. Its a pretty grim looking building. For us it did the job but I wouldn't stay here more than one night.

I've stayed in the dorms on numerous occasions not because the beds are comfy but because I love the guys who run the place. The guest house is situated above one of the best Indian restaurants in the area and the staff is always friendly and helpful. The beds are hard and misshapen and the A/C only stays on between...

Up until recently I have always stayed at the Shangri-La Bangkok and found it be adequate in terms of its comfort and affordability. On my most recent trip to Bangkok to join in the mid-April peasant bathing ritual on Khao San road, I opted to choose Rainbow Khaosan Hostel because of its proven track record and strong reputation. I was... More
