Buddy Lodge is always a home-away-from-home. Clean, well-decorated, friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is pretty good (I love how the cops eat there in the morning too). And of course the location, right on Khao San road. Arriving at Buddy and having a refreshing pint at their Irish bar Mulligans, is always something I look forward to even after staying... More

For the first night and to meet other people was just perfect. Also to take a refresh after a day sightseeing in bangkok was the rooftop pool amazing! Up there no bad smell ;) the rooms are clean and nice. For a night at khaosan road is it the best choice.

Having spent 2 weeks volunteering in Northern Thailand, my girlfriend and I decided to book into this hotel for a bit of comfort before continuing on our travels. Perhaps it was the lack of facilities I had endured prior to arriving but I found the Buddly Lodge to be excellent. The rooms were spacious, clean and had a well stocked... More

This was my first night in Bangkok and I was wonderfully surprised. This place was clean and beautiful. The staff was very helpful and prompt. We got there early and stayed in the waiting area which was air conditioned and serene with a leave a book/take a book shelf. The manager was very sweet and really cared about our happiness.... More

Being on Khaosan Road made this hotel somewhat noisy at times, however the location made it very handy for eating and shopping options. The river is well within walking distance too. Would stay again.

We stayed at the Buddy Lodge for three nights. It is a nice, quiet and clean place in the middle of the complete chaos of Khao San road. Excellent location, convenient to go anywhere and to spend a funny night after wandering around Bangkok for the whole day. There's a nice swimming pool. Breakfast is served in the close Mulligan's...
