My boyfriend and I stayed 5 nights at this hostel after hanging out here last time we were in Bangkok.
They have doubled in size since then and we stayed in the section that they took over from a hostel next door, which doesn't look like the pictures on the website and are much more hostel like.
We were really pleased with our stay, three of the four receptionists were lovely. The fourth must have taken unhappy pills! The other three were constantly smiling and making us feel welcome.
The room was small and basic, but it was exactly what we paid for (after finding 50% off online - absolute bargain) and the bathrooms were clean and had toilet paper but no soap. The beds were comfy and we had ac. The wifi worked well in the room. Given the price we paid, it was amazing value for money!
The restaurant is slightly more expensive but the waiters are sweet, attentive and helpful and the food is good. This is down a quieter street and the bar has not succumbed to the 241's, the buckets or live/loud music, the nearby bars have this covered meaning it can be empty at night. The location for a base you can't fault.
The one thing missing at this hostel is a chill out area. There is a room on the back with a pool table and a tv that plays HBO movies (where the bakery used to be) but the tables and chairs make it feel like you can't relax here which means the hostel loses its social vibe. It looks like the computers have also been removed, instead putting them where the tour operator sits...I don't know if you are allowed to use them as we used our phones on wifi. I've heard/seen other people mention this and the owners want to make money from the restaurant and it would certainly suggest this but given the competition around the area I fear they will lose customers this way.
Overall an excellent stay for the price we paid, we just chose to socialise elsewhere!
