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.

This was my third time staying in the hostel. My past two stays were very nice. The last time was 3 years ago. But now, it was just a great disappointment to me. The bathroom is dirty and smelly, the window in the room can not be open and the aircon off from 11 am - 5 pm, so if... More

This is in a great location - just off Silom road so you can't hear the traffic and nearby clubs. I got the single room for 3 nights and it was very cheap. The lady at the front desk is really lovely and very friendly. However, the walls are paper thin and I have been unfortunate to be in a... More

I have stayed in the dorm for 4 night. It's very good for budget travellers. And the good location, convenient to another where in Bangkok. I think i will stay there again if I go to Bangkok next time.

This hostel caters for those on a tight budget. Those who aren't should look elsewhere. For only $4-5 more, you can find much nicer accommodation in Bangkok. I stayed in the 6 bed dorm on the 6th floor and a 2 bed on the 3rd floor. The 6 bed dorm is not nice at all. The pipes drip water when... More

The staff are extremely friendly and willing to help. The dorm is on the 6th floor, but for 250 baht I think it is good value. The dorms have assigned lockers that they give you a key to which is nice. Free tea coffee and cocoa is a nice touch.
