I think it cost us 350 baht to get to hostel from Bangkok airport and it is located in a good area to see the city. The mattresses were on the floor and they were quite hard, but comfortable enough to sleep on and the air con worked well and kept the room very cool. The shared bathroom was mostly empty and was kept clean apart from a small ants nest which kept on cropping up by the shower.
The problem with the room was that the building is made out of teakwood and you can literally here every conversation throughout the building. The roof of the building is made out of corrugated iron, therefore when it rains, it makes a very loud noise. The combined noise of the air con and the rain was very loud, even with ear plugs, therefore if you're here in the rainy season you better not be a light sleeper.
On a final note, the small bin in your room will never be emptied and you must take your shoes off when you go upstairs. Overall I give this hostel a 3/5 because the breakfast was nice and the people were friendly but if you pay a slightly bit more I'm sure your find better accommodation in Bangkok.
