If you're on a budget and wanting to stay close to kho San road this is a do able place! I mean bed was a rock and had a weird smell but the staff were very nice and did what they could to help! Close to food shopping activities! Also the Indian restaurant below is amazing!

In hindsight there really is nothing wrong with the guesthouse, but for how much you are paying you are definitely receiving a great deal. The rooms are simple; bed and bathroom (the shower is quite good too). The location also gives you an exquisite taste of India in the main reception area, with authentic Indian food being served by the... More

The location is perfect if you want to be near Khao San Road. This is a place to stay if you want a private room with private bathroom. Expect the room to be small. I did not like the super duper hard bed so I moved to a different hostel after a night of stay here. Also, the wifi did... More

Friendly staff helped our group of 7 Australian travellers feel so at home at their hostel. We were given great advice on markets, tuktuk prices, and local attractions. The location was just outside of the main touristy strip which was ideal as we weren't right in the middle of the madness that is Khoa San road. The Indian food was... More

That place is one of the cheapest places in Khaosan area, but you prefer to pay a little bit more and to get minimal conditions. What you get is a small room, that 2 persons cant walk in the same time, toilet's door with a hall in the middle of it and hard bad, like to lay on the ground.

This place was made by the staff, who happily took us in at 6am off a night bus and gave us a bed. However one of the doubles was growing it's own life on the walls with damp etc and by the time the boys moved their stuff stank!! The beds were also impossibly hard.. Drinking ourselves to sleep was... More
