Location if you want khao san is excellent. If you have a room near the road it is loud at night but with the fan on to keep us cool we havnt been kept up once. We had a double room with private bathroom and good WiFi for 400. We had a good look around and most rooms are 300... 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

stayed here on our first night in Bangkok, and although it was a handy location we would have preferred some comfort rather then this matchbox sized room. We should have looked around rather then book here

The food is quite decent, Indian cuisine (ran by Indians) The rooms have enough space but they have no organisation at all.. No toilets/showers on the floor I lived, Having to ask for toilet paper, no roomkey (just a lock for the last person leaving).. Not the... More

The walls are relatively thick and keep out a lot of the noise pumping from the busy streets outside. Good value for money The staff are good guys and make an delicious... More

I would steer clear of this hostel. Room was filthy and the lock didn't work on the door. Shower was shoddy at best. Mould everywhere. Bed was like a slab of granite. Got woken up early by some drunk guy trying to force his way in our room (not the hostels fault I no but just didn't feel safe) staff... More
