Very helpful staff, let us leave our bags there free of charge till we were able to check in as our flight was very early am. Big bed, clean room. Fantastic location being right on khaosan road, but obviously this does mean it can be noisy at night. Very nice roof top pool which was welcomed to escape the heat... More

I was disappointed to read other people found Buddy Lodge dirty- that certainly wasnt our experience! The rooms, whilst not being modern in decor, were comfortable, well equipped and clean. Plenty of plug points to charge phones, cameras etc and strong wifi available on all floors. Some rooms can hear the music from the nightclub below, but we never found... More

Aside from being on Khao San road I would advise against staying here. The place is very outdated and loud. Street noise aside there are outside noises that are relentless. I was awakened at 6;30 am. Thank goodness I saved my ear plugs from the flight. Operating the lights, air conditioning and tv are from some a center table in... More

The Buddy Lodge Hotel was easy to find on Khao San Road and the staff were friendly on reception allowing me to either check in early for an additional fee or relax for free on the roof top pool. The pool was lovely and a good sun trap for sunbathing. The bedroom was clean and a good size. I did... More

Location was good but dirty, very dirty. I cant imagine they pass any health code running a hotel like this. im not talking about just dust, but sticky dust, on every corner. A blind maid would have done a better job! Also found some hairs on bed the first time we came in the room. I suspect the sheets were... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights when arriving in Thailand on our honeymoon. We knew that Khao San Road was a touristy spot, but that doesn't really begin to describe the hippie-keg party vibe of the place. The entire street is a giant frat party for European and Aussie college kids and "hippies" who haven't moved on... More

Had a good stay here a few years ago. Service and food was excellent and we liked the rooms. Roof top pool is a good place to hang out. Better than a lot of the more basic places in this particular location. Khao san Road good fun!

Buddy Lodge is a really nice hotel located on the lively Khao San Road even though you do not get disturbed with the loud noise at night! The rooms have everything you could ask for and very clean. We unfortunately forgot to book a room during our second visit to Bangkok and they were fully booked, however the reception staff... More

This hotel was recommended by friends and didn't disappoint. Right in the midst of the craziness of Koh San Road is this gem of a hotel, clean and with all the amenities you need. Friendly staff were very helpful. Big plus point was the rooftop bar, amazing oasis. When I'm next in Bangkok I will be back at Buddy's. :)
