This hostel could not have been better. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the outdoor communal space was really nice. Lovely cats and dogs as well. Wifi worked perfectly. Firm mattresses, but for 8$ a night I cant complain. Good location, walking distance from good bars, restaurants and temples.

The hostel was located near everything, especially the Saturday and Sunday markets. The staff was so helpful. They literally set up all of our transport, elephant excursions, cooking classes, and answered every questions we had. The breakfast was also great and really enjoyed their free coffee and tea/toast!

Very nice hostel. We stayed here for a week and enjoyed it a lot. Super friendly and helpful owners. Beautiful garden and clean rooms! They have laundry, scooter and bicycle renting and is well located. Very recommendable and good value for money!

Stayed for three nights. The rooms were OK, aircon worked fine. Quiet area though, you need to walk about 20 minutes to get to the "touristy" part of town on the east side of the moat, but this wasn't a problem for us. Free toast and coffee good, they let us use the fridge and microwave too with no issues.... More

We stayed for about 4 nights in the Gongkaew and everything was perfect. We had a quite big and comfortable bungalow with our own bathroom and TV, everything was very clean and the windows and doors had protection to avoid the mosquitos from entering. The family that runs it are very friendly and helped us a lot to book all... More

If you are looking for nightlife or social scene this is not the place for you, but what it does give you is a nice place, welcoming and helpful staff and free breakfast. Stayed in a private room (twin and then a double) for 780bhat per night. Was very safe and while not close to any action the old city... More

This is a nice relaxing place with a lovely outdoor area and friendly really helpful staff! But just be aware that there are much cheaper (half the price) still really nice places that are closer to the markets without being nosy. Do a little more research before booking would be my suggestion!

This was one of my favorite hostels I stayed at in while traveling around Thailand. It was on a nice quiet street but walking distance to a ton of great restaurants, shops and spas. The family who own it are very friendly and helpfull. The common area was really relaxing plus they sell beer! I would definitely stay here again... More

Great little hostel in the old city, very quiet area. So serene and the staff are so friendly and accommodating. Toast, tea and coffee are available all the time, free of charge. Really helpful staff and so nice. Would absolutely stay here again.

The accommodation itself is great for the price. We stayed one night in a 4 bed dorm which we had to ourselves, and there is a bathroom attached. Aircon is also well functioning. However if you are looking to meet people or have a more upbeat vibe, I would maybe look elsewhere. I would recommend this to anyone seeking some... More
