Great location for ok price but be prepared to rough it Noisy constantly even when you can't hear other people through walls made of paper, the fan is incredibly loud. Room was filthy and holes all over the wall Pillows were dirty too Mattress full of holes and no topper or blankets Bathroom so so mouldy and the door didn't... More

Basic but that's not a bad thing. 400B for double room, Fan. Ensuite bathroom, strong shower. The beds are quite hard (I like hard beds so this was a bonus) No problem w it getting hot in the rooms. Didn't bother us-you can sleep in longer-but no windows in the room. Possible to upgrade to windows&ac. In perfect city location.... More

This place isn't that nice, just saying it. The beds are rock hard and the place is pretty dingy, but it had wifi and a fan and heck, it was sooooooo inexpensive. But while it wasn't nice, there weren't Any bugs, our private room even had a bathroom! We knew it wouldn't be fancy and we were happy to have... More

Our first stop in Bangkok so decided to book the cheapest hostel. Staff were very friendly and was lovely Indian food downstairs. The room was soooo hot (the fan didn't do much) very basic but as clean as it could get. If you're wanting to save money here is a safe bet as it's just off the main strip of... More

This hostel is in a great location but the hostel itself isn't the nicest, the staff are friendly but the interior isn't too pleasant and the toilets/showers very basic, worth it for a place to stay cheaply because of the location. There are lockers too which is helpful!

~basic Beds were quite hard and not too comfortable. Dorm room we stayed in was mostly clean. air-conditioning was good; as it was our first few days in Asia and we had not acclimatized, this was essential. Helpful and friendly staff. Good food downstairs. Very good location a couple of minutes away from the middle of Khao san Road

If you're looking for a budget stay them you don't expect luxury. Saying that, the lime green walls , rock hard bed and the grubby dribble that was a shower was probably not even worth the £5 we spent. If you do visit stay in a dorm opposed to a two room and all this aside they did store our... More

I stayed some days in Hostel Rainbow. I chose this hostel because it was close to Khao San Road and inside there was an Indian Restaurant. I would like to have the feeling that I was in India in Bangkok. The room was not so good, there was no window, so there was no air, the bed clothes had a... More

It's not located directly in the Kaosan Road as its name could assoiate. But you can cross the street and you're already there, which makes it a good place for people who like the nightlife but prefer a silent and long sleep in the night. The accomodation is quite cheap for Bangkok with prices around 10$/night for a single room.... More

Great place to stay. Above an Indian restaurant with great food, near khao San and the people working there are so friendly. The rooms aren't great but have really good aircon. The owner also owns a tailors that will keep your measurements on record so you can order clothes once you've gone home
