First off if I could rate this place lower than 1 star I would!! While visiting Bangkok, we traveled in many different neighborhoods always booking via booking.com. After seeing the photos and location of this hotel we decided to go ahead and reserve. We mistakenly prepaid upon arrival for two nights stay. The room was dirty - was incredibly small... More

This has to be the worst hotel I've ever been to... We have paid less for hotels on khao San road and they have been amazing. Erawan house for example is the same price and 100 times better. Staff are rude and the place is riddled with insects. The beds are dirty and the toilet is honestly aweful. We went... More

We spent 4 nights in a room smaller and darker than a prison. We decided to stay only because our reservation with booking.com was unrefundable. The pictures on the website don't correspond to the reality. The room was totally dirty, hair on the pillows and in the bathroom, many disgusting stains everywhere, on the sheets, on the walls, on the... More

We stayed here bc our travel agency booked us here on our last night in Bangkok. All three of us hated this place! We found fleas, and a big roach while I was showering! Room didn't looked like it was cleaned very well, there were waters half way that were clearly left from the other guests in the fridge, one... More

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

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
