I have stayed here about 15 times over the last 10 years or so. This used to be a good guest house with a good little restaurant downstairs. Unfortunately, I have watched it deteriorate year after year. And whilst it was still my 'go to' guest house in Bangkok, it is now run down to the point where I won't... More

I use this hostel everytime I visit bangkok, budget single rooms for 200baht a night, hot showers and friendly staff. They make amazing fresh bread everyday. It's a 2 minute walk from Khao san road. Safe place for a single female traveller.

Comfortable to have my own room and not a dorm for one time. Quite cheap and basic room. Just not very simple to do without plug (electricity for charge devices) The location is perfect, near Rambuttri or Khao San Road, close to the river for take a boat, a bus stop just in front of.

This is my local hostel in Bangkok. Checked in a few times last year and I would definitely visit again. Cheap. Smack in the middle of the rustling and bustling city that Bangkok is well known for. Expect loud noises, chaos, and the smells of street food creeping into your room.

Actually quite surprised by how pleasant our stay was. Rooms are basic, but very clean and the beds are fine. It's cheap as well, We paid 300 baht for a double bed, with fan. Shared a bathroom, but those were fine too. On rambuttri, which is a perfect location to stay in Bangkok, near khao san, but way less noisy... More

I've been staying here many times since 2010. The prices have not gone up, in fact last year it became even better value as the wifi is now free. I've looked around the area at other options, but none beats New Merry V so I always come back here. I always stay in the back part of the building, these... More

I stayed here with a friend a few times on each of my visits to bangkok when passing through. They have double rooms which are super cheap when you share them. The rooms don't have windows that face outside which can be a tad odd but you aren't there to spend all your time in your room. The rooms are... More

Stayed there with a group of 16 school-aged students. Rooms were clean, small & basic with no extras. Shared shower & toilet, cold water only but clean. Bring your own towel & toilet paper. No power point in room but could charge phones in corridor. Convenient location to Ko San Rd and a range of eateries. Good budget accommodation.

Stayed in a double bed with A/C, private bathroom and paid 590 per night. Our room was located in the back of the building so was nice and quiet and had massive windows with lots of bright light. Arrived at the room and it was very clean with fresh bedding, bathroom was clean too and had hot showers. The bed... More
