The pictures on their website do not show you how bad this place actually is. The air conditioning did not work, the bed was not clean, the fridge was filthy. Even for a cheap place you expect it to be clean., The staff on reception were very rude and they even told us when we left our bags in the... More

We booked this and expected the worst after reading all the reviews. We booked a room with 2 beds in case they were tiny rooms like people have written. But it was fine! We had 2 queen sized beds, 1 fan each above our bed, tv and the bedding was really clean and smelt nice. We were coming towards off... More

I often find myself sitting and reading reviews for places I am at, or hostels/hotels that I will be heading to. But let's be real... Everyone's experiences are different, and everyone's expectations are even more different. When you stay at a hostel in Thailand, you must realize that you are STAYING AT A HOSTEL IN THAILAND! People's reviews of Sawasadee... More

This is quite simply the worst place to stay ever! After a long tiring journey, I was looking forward to relaxing and beginning my 3 week holiday. I had booked on line and arrived at reception with my receipt. After a few minutes of being totally ignored the receptionist just pointed to a chair and said 'sit there'. After 15... More

Stayed here. Nice comfortable and cordial stay but right opposite railway station! Very noisy. With Gujarati guests who are loud and noisy, with swimming pool right inside and open, with ill-designed discotheque, quiet and privacy are out of imagination.

There are 2 good things to say, one is position...and Two the bar on their breakfast area is run by a fabulous Thai woman. The front desk staff were incredibly rude and unpleasant, the rooms were in poor shape ....the beds felt as though the mattress was stuffed with old clothes. It was only two nights so I just gritted... More

What can I say about this place... It was an experience! When I arrived and checked into my room I may as well have been served by a mute. After a while I got pointed in a vague direction sort of over that way and eventually found my room, although my stay in Bangkok probably would have been better if... More
