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 The place is very outdated and loud.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

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. :)

buddy lodge is smack in the middle of the worlds biggest "poop" show. After a long night of buckets of booze, endless buffets of street food, pounding bass filled techno music, and the ocassional unintentional dance-off with a lady boy, it's great to know you have a safe place to lay your spinning head. Even with the a/c cranked you'll... More

Myself and my boyfriend travelled to Thailand last month, and Bangkok was our first stop. Buddy Lodge had been recommended by somebody who had previously stayed so we thought it was worth a go. Our room was lovely, especially for the price. Our room was very spacious, clean and the hotel was in a perfect spot for being nearby attractions.... More

We've been coming to the Khao San Road for 15 years now and while it certainly has it's critics we still love the vibe. We've stayed in over 7 different places over the years and indeed when we first went the Buddy Lodge wasn't even built and as we're not getting any younger we decided to splash out and stay... More
