Friendly enough staff and decent location are the only good things I can say about this hostel. The common room is the size of a shoe box, bathrooms were disgusting, I didn't want to touch anything. Six floors with no elevators, the lockers are tiny with no locks provided, I worried about my things being stolen. Beds and pillows hard,... More

My friend and I were really looking forward to being in Bangkok after a delayed flight from Shanghai. When we arrived and walked through the lobby at this hostel immediately there were warning signs that the hostel was not what it described itself as. There was rubbish all over the floor, the place looked like it hadn't been cleaned for... More

This hostel must be your worst hostel easily, so don't even think about it. It's running down, filthy, dark, smelly... I stayed 4-bed dorm, dirty water was leaking from air-con I found it out in the morning, my bag was wet and smelled like sewer. I had to wash all the stuffs in the bag. Wifi doesn't reach to 6th...

Booked this place via agoda and it is nothing like the photos. See my comparison photo above. I have travelled around the whole of SE Asia and stayed in over 100 different hostels and this is one of the worst. It's so dirty we didn't want to even go under the sheets. The place is falling apart. The bathrooms are... More

If you have any visa business to do (we had to organise a Myanmar visa), the location is perfect for Silom. It is also good for experiencing patpong markets and shows. The dorm is a little untidy and it is HOT on the top floor but AC comes on 5pm to 11am. Bring a padlock as the lockers all have... More

Owner/Staff- Management doesn't know how to manage their bookings. They sold my room that I stayed in for two days without asking if i was staying or going. I found out at 8pm my last night that I did not have a room for the next day and I had to instigate that conversation. Price- There are cheaper, just not... More

I really liked staying in this hostel. It's close enough to all the action in Silom but tucked away so you are not disturbed if you don't want to be. There is air con and sofas in the lobby where you can chill out. The hostel has character, some thought and love has gone into its decor. The lady on... More

The hostel keepers were very friendly and helpful and made me feel at home. The hostel itself was average; you could easily find a better place to stay. It was my first time in Bangkok and it took me a good while before I actually found the hostel which was hidden behind some buildings off the main street down a... More

Staff member is extremely friendly and helpful. She has relatively good command of English which makes communication a lot easier. The welcome booklet found in the room is very helpful in warning the traveller of what typical scams that people fall for in Bangkok. Location is convenient, within walking distance to public transport and easy to hire taxi.
