Unless you are there for clubbing don't stay!! The room itself was really nice and the bed super comfy but the noise was horrendous!! We were on the third floor but the noise from the nightclub underneath made me think I was actually trying to sleep in the middle of it!! It didn't stop until 3am and then it seemed... More

Stayed here for one night on arrival in BKK and the location is right in all the action. Was a few noisy drunks but that's to be expected in a party area. In my room one of the side lamps had lose wiring and you could hear the electricity crackling when you turned it on. Single female travellers if you... More

We stayed in Buddy Lodge for one night in August 2015. If you want to stay in the hustle and bustle of Khoa San Road, this is the best place! It is set off the road by McDonalds, at the start and is well sign posted. The reception staff were friendly and spoke good English. As our rooms were not... More

I really do love this hotel and I've stayed here twice now, because of the style of the rooms and a nice little private balcony that comes with it, also the rooftop swimming pool and location is a plus too. The only downside is the noise sometimes but that's expected and some of the staff weren't that great

Buddy Lodge is in the heart of one of the busiest night market streets. The street (Kao San rd) has an amazing atmosphere. Buddy Lodge is clean, and there was an enormous king bed that was really comfy. Air conditioning worked well and was a welcome relief. The roof top pool and loung / bar area was outstanding.
