All you hear about this place is relatively accurate, except I think I have figured out the terrible discontent with which the Individual who runs this wonderfully located, spacious, and fair priced rooms in this most intriguing place...you will notice a black and white picture of an old lady near on top of the fridges, just look at her closely,...

Stayed many times in this guesthouse, because it's pretty well located. Close to Kaohsan Road but in a quite Soi ! To mention would be the Safety because of a kind of jail metallic front door. DON'T FORGET YOUR KEY IN THE NIGHT, BECAUSE AFTER 8 PM, THE OWNER WILL" IN NO WAY" RESPOND ANY MORE ON THE BELL !!... More

i cannot say much against the guesthouse itself as it is clean, quiet and cheap as well. But i have never been feeling welcome as a guest here. Its almost that you feel guilty to be there. The owner does cooking classes and she has been around the world. But apparently she hasnt learned that much about socializing with other... More

Yes, the owner is 'eccentric', i.e., not exactly gregarious. But what's that matter if you're looking for a good place to sleep and chill. Rooms are great and spacious. Place is kept quiet most of the time. Far enough away from Khao San to enjoy atmosphere of local lifestyle. Access to everything you need. Reasonable prices. And it's situated in... More

Having known the place from 10 years ago as well locaded, affordable, quit and clean we were badly disappointed this time. Not only was the owner more than unfriendly and not willing to support with an easy phone call when we were waiting for the pick up to Cambodia. When we returned from the tour, having deposited our baggage, he... More

If after all previous reviews you still brave enough to go there, be ready to get in a kind of freaky family. The owner is a main gem who influences everybody else, it seems that some guests stay here forever. He will never greet you, talk to you or give you a smile in this land of smiles. Yes, that's...

We only stayed one night as we could not stand this place. The bed was rock hard, the showers and toilet facilities were basic and the fan is the room pathetic. But the worst thing about this place was the man who ran it. He behaved as if he was the camp leader and had a whole bunch of strange... More

The location, value for money and facilities make this place a budget super-find. I paid 170 baht for a single room with fan and WiFi (on-and-off, like most of BKK, but at times good enough to download a torrent or two). The room and guesthouse are fairly nice and spacious (if in need of a *mop* from time to time),... More
