My partner and I were looking for the most basic, cheap room, but the room we got at Rainbow Hostel was far below our expectations. The roof of our room was completely black from mould so it felt uncomfortable to breathe inside. Water dripped from the ceiling in the bathroom, meaning it was constantly wet. We felt like we were...

This place was cheap - paid 200 baht per night for a 6 bed dorm. It's right near Khao San Road which is handy but the rooms were a bit grubby, the whole place smells funky and the beds were rickety and hard. But staff were helpful (politely let us check in at 6am) and the location is good. But... More

The staff are very nice but the beds are hard as rocks, there's stains on everything. I asked for a double room as I wasn't very well and I went to see it and it had blood marks on the bed :/ not good!! It is very budget I ended up leaving to stay 3 doors up without a refund... More

Do not stay here. The place was dirty, the rooms were like prison cells and there are better places to stay for the same amount of money. The staff however were helpful with our booking but it did not compensate for the place itself. Very close to Khao San road if that's all your after!

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
