Stumbled in here very tired after arriving in Bangkok. I guess Khao San Rd over all is very filthy, so after looking at the room we decided to stay one night thinking this was Khao San standard. The bathroom was extremely small! You have to pay for wifi. Walls and floor were dirty and it looked more like a basement... More

Best budget place for backpackers who just want a place to stay for the night. Except for cockroaches that we spotted in the bathroom and fridge, stay was quite comfortable. Very close to grand palace.

We stayed one night and the room was not as bright as any of the pictures in its description - maybe the gloomiest hostel we have stayed in yet. Room was clean, but the bed was uncomfortable and I could have brushed my teeth, used the loo and showered at the same time - yes the bathroom is that small.... More

Cheap enough rooms, beds & bathroom was clean but the decor looked like it was the same for years. In between tiles in the bathroom was grubby, looked very old. We opened a press in the room which was really dusty and released a bad smell - probably wasn't opened in years! But to be v close to Khoasan road... More

I traveled South East Asia with my best friend and out of all the places I stayed this was one of the most memorable, we have the funniest and fondest memories of this place. For a backpacker it's good value for money and the experience itself was hilarious, absolutely brilliant craic!!Staff were relatively friendly, location is excellent, just off Khao... More

After a tired long trip by bus from Krabi, its the first hotel you can find from the last bus stop. Must admit, did not do much research on hotels before arriving to Bangkok, so took the first one that found as was 5:30am in the morning. The 1,000 bath charge seem reasonable, as the receptionist showed me pics of... More

I have stayed there for two nights. The staff do not have a good quality of English manners, thus they cannot help you, what is worse is that they do not try to help you. Do you have a problem, ok it is your problem, not theirs! My room's window lock was not working, so I slept in an unlocked... More

Ok place to stay, bit run down but reasonably clean and tidy. Close to Khao San Road, but quiet! Stayed in a double with ensuite; (wet) bathroom was very small, shower is pretty much on top of the toilet, but has hot water thankfully. Check in was easy, wifi is good, overall adequate lodgings for a couple of nights in... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and by the end of that I was definitely over the whole khao san area in general. The room was basic, relatively quiet, the hot water worked fine, as well as the TV and fridge but the pillow was like a rock and I just ended up using my sweater instead. Its ok if you... More

The hotel itself was in a good location but overpriced for how basic it was. The main thing I would say is... DO NOT book buses from any sawasdee hotel. We stayed in two sawasdee hotels in Bangkok, Khao San and Welcome Inn. Both times we booked overnight buses from the hotel, one to Chiang Mai and one to Phuket.... More
