“Decent and unexpensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

After an extensive trip through Thailand we landed in Bangkok by train: this hostel is just next door to the train station, fortunately our friend Campion who apparently is their agent booked for us. It was the right choice, a beautiful and cozy place. We slept very well and the place was very nice. We'll come here again.

Prime location being situated just across the railway station & right at Hua Lamphong MRT station. MRT travel deposits you right at the doorstep of the hostel which is especially convenient for late nights as you don't need to traverse long distances & shady alleyways.

Hostel staff are impeccable: polite, friendly & ever accommodating. More than once i've had my room before the check-in time as long as it wasn't occupied prior. Props for that!

Rooms (only had the private rooms before) are clean, comfortable & fitted with all the basic amenities one would need. All the rooms i've had have slit windows that allow sunlight through but provide no view.

Concluded, great value for money imho!

We stayed at the hostel for one night, and enjoyed our stay. Beds are reasonably comfortable, and the lockers in the rooms are secure and big enough for all luggage. Towels, shampoo and soap is all included. We stayed in a dorm room and found the bathrooms clean and hot water. Not too noisy, either.
The location is great for getting an early morning train. The station is literally just across the road. But the surrounding area was dirty and intimidating (more than the rest of BK, which we found was fine). However, considering that the main reason people stay here is to get early trains, they don't start serving breakfast until 8am! Pretty ridiculous.
I wouldn't stay here if I wasn't getting an early train, stay closer to Khao San Road, far nicer places to eat, more of a variety and much more to do.
The food is good, but on the expensive side.
Free wifi in communal areas.
Nice communal room with TV and films available to rent.

I stayed in this hotel in late September 2012. The only reason I choose this hostel was because it is right opposite the Hua Lamphong Railway Station and an entrance to the subway is just 50 meters away from the hostel. It was very convenient as I need to take an early morning train at around 5.45am.

The hostel was clean but it has no elevator. So if you have lot of bags, it might be a problem for you. There is free wifi and there is a small café in the lobby. Check-in and out was quick and fuss free.

Room was simple, functional and clean as you can see from the photos.

We stayed here 4 nights and we can say that we wouldn't change. Metro in front of the hotel or by tuk tuk for $60 to Siam square. Someone said its noisy but it was alright nothing major. Today we are going to Koh Samui and we already booked another night here when we get back to Bangkok. Hotel doesn't have lift but if you have heavy luggage no probs, they will carry for you to your room. Aircon and tv alright.

Located next to the train station and MRT, this is the place to stay if you are going to the train station or airport. I stayed in on of the doorms, and it was really an excellent room. Big and comfortable bed, clean bathroom and toilet and plenty of room for a backpack in the cabinet. It's free wifi in the lobby, and a decent cafe as well. There's also a cheap laundrey next door. The hostel staff are neither friendly or helpfull, and that is really the only drawback I can think of.

We stayed one night in this hotel, as we had to catch the train to Cambodia at 05.55 AM.
The rooms are OK for the price paid.
The hotel has a good restaurant.
To be recommended if you want to use the Lamphong Train Station.
