The room itself was fine, nice clean beds and towels as well as a fridge for storing drinks. We needed to notify reception if we wanted our room cleaning which I thought was a bit odd, I would expect as a 'hotel' you would have your cleaners run through the rooms daily. Hallways were shabby, rubbish dumped on stairs still... More

Great location and so close to khao San but not affected by the noise. Room and bathroom ok but nothing special. Like someone else said though this is definitely a hostel not a hotel. Breakfast was not worth paying for but we made that mistake. What happened next was completely my fault obviously, but I was extremely disappointed with how... More

Strong cigarette smell in the room, not properly cleaned linen and floor, yeah, do not expect a hotel standard when you paid 20 $ a night. Other than that, the staff at the Front Desk is very friendly. Very proximity to Khao San but not affected by the street's noisy bars. Walking distance to tourist spots and 80 THB taxi... More

You want a big room? Flat screen? Brand new hotel? Large bathroom with a sunken jacuzzi? Fancy pants? Room service? Or do you want somewhere cheap to stay that's steps from Ko Sarn Road traveller hub 20 bucks a night with a clean bed, air con, tv, mini fridge, and bathroom? If it's the latter then this is the place... More

I wouldn't call this a hotel. It is a hostel. You can book the breakfast there but it isn't tasty and not cooled. So when you eat a bit later you better have a strong stomach. The location is great. Close to khao san road. The room was smelly. Really disgusting. Everything was old. I can't recommend it at all!!

Very basic room, no towel, just a bed and a bathroom. Lock on door was ok, not super secure. I had an internal window, I checked it, it pulled open from the outside, right near the stairwell...had a struggle but managed to lock it shut...just take care with this, otherwise your stuff will be out the window when you're not...

The room was in a great location however our double room was very stuffy, small and had no natural light. overall not bad for the price and it had air conditioning. Would recommend this for a shorter stay.

Such a nice location in a very center of major tourist attractions in Bangkok. The hotel was fine, but just fine. And there was a bit lack of service. Did not have aircon for a while before changing the room. Some hotel staff couldn't communicate in English. Food not very exciting and hotel seems to target mainly on backpackers. True... More

I stayed at this hotel more than 4 times already mainly because it's really close to Khaosan Road. I don't like how small the room and the bathroom are. It doesn't have much thing in the room. The tv looks old and doesn't have anything entertaining except soccer and news and at night it gets noisy. It's enough for stay... More
