Buddy Lodge is now my go to place when in Bangkok. All the amenities you could ask for and aren't likely to find elsewhere on Khao San road. Location is walking distance to several attractions, a short ride to the sky train and smack in the middle of Bangkok's backpacker party area. Even as a frequent visitor to Bkk their... More

Stayed at Buddy lodge during Songkran this year. This hotel was very nice in my opinion. Stayed here with my girlfriend for two days.

You can do all of these things... More

Decent rooftop swimming pool with plenty of sun loungers and bar. I had breakfast included in Mulligan's bar and that was ok as well. It's situated... More

Room was a little tired, but what do you expect from the old part of Bangkok. Bed quality was very comfortable and good pillows. Room was... More
