Have stayed in Buddy Lodge a number of times now always great service and helpfull staff. Rooms are well finished and they have a lovely roof top pool. Best thing about Buddy is the location right on Koh San. One little annouance is the Wi-Fi where you have to enter a code every time, it would be much better if... More

I stayed one night, flying in from Tashkent en route to San Francisco. I wanted to stay in the (in)famous Khao San Road since I will be moving to Bangkok end of July and probably won't be heading in the direction of the Old City too often. The room: Spacious, bright and airy. Nice touch with the old school decor... More

Really good location for the busy lifestyle but couldn't hear any of this when in the clean spacious room. Staff couldn't do any more for us unless the joined us for the full trip!!! Nothing was a problem for example- the air condition in our room played up and within 5-10 minutes it was fixed!! Thanks for the lovely stay.... More

The hotel is fabulous I've stayed here many times always my first choice when staying near Kohsan Road. Look forward to seeing you in December 2014. A large room and very clean the roof top pool is a great place to meet people. The gym is basic but free which is a bonus.

I've stayed at Buddy Lodge 3 times now and it's perfect. Embarrassed to admit that my most recent stay was my first visit to the rooftop pool, which was a quiet little oasis from the busy city. In the middle of Khaosan road - THE place to be for backpackers and travelers - you can't get more central, and it's... More

For Bangkok this hotel is ideally located on Khao San Road, directly in the midst of all the action. The rooms were a little nosy at night but this is what you'd expect for any hotel on this road. The hotel itself was great, although the rooms may be a bit shabby round the edges they're nicely furnished and clean.... More
