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

This place was reasonably good value for money. Stayed for two nights in double room with aircon. Having checked out about five other accommodation options of similar price, Merry V ticked most boxes, even though at lower end price-wise. Reception desk staff were pleasant and helpful. Room was largish and lclean, as was en suite bathroom. Central location. Towels, toilet... More

Noise all night from the outside pubs. - Was impossible to sleep and scary to be around, like a horror movie. - Only one power socket per room. - No wifi (should be, but never... More

The hostel located just behind Kao Shan road. A bus stop is just in front of the hostel. Jetty is walking distance. It is very convenient to travel to the city and jj market. Major of the rooms do not come with windows. It supply air cond if you wish to pay higher. Don't complaint too much if you are... More
