“Clean place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

I stayed this place 2 nights. This hostel is supporting big locker which is good enough to keep my baggage and other things inside and clean shower booth and toilet.
But this place is quite far from the sightseeing spots in Bangkok.

This hostel is near a BTS station, and near the central pier, so you can go wherever you want from there. Even to go to Skybar is just 5 minutes walking.
It has a great staff, is very organized, the bathrooms are big and clean and the prices are good.
I really reccomend this hostel!

I stayed here twice on my recent trip to Thailand at each end of my travel. The hostel is easy to get to from the airport via public transportation and then equally easy to get along via the SkyTrain or the port. The rooms are clean and quiet, with A/C. I stayed in a mixed 8 room both times. The restaurant on site isn't bad and the staff are very helpful.

This place is awesome! Super clean, modern, free wifi, excellent restaurant and they serve beer. I would highly recommend staying here (I've stayed here twice already). Don't buy tours/tickets from the lady working at the tourist desk. She will rip you off.

A great place. We got upgraded to a deluxe double for free as our room was double booked. Was great room very clean and modern with everything you could want. Prices at this time of year compete with most guesthouses but you get hotel standard service. Being a hostel you also get a great mix of people.

Location not typical of hostels in BKK but close to BTS and able to explore Siam square, sky bar and 'new Bangkok'. Meter taxi to koh San area was 100-150B

Would certainly stay again if I wanted to stay at this end of town.

Great reception area, lots of comfortable chairs and good customer service. Good common space throughout the hostel. The first floor lobby has several free computers, a lounge area and is fully air conditioned. The restaurant to the right of the lobby is basic, but if you don't want to venture out, it is nice they have a restaurant. 10% discount on a meal with stay.

I stayed in the female dorms on the 2nd floor which have a completely separate entry. Great design for safety if you are concerned. There are 10 different toilets and sinks, separate from the 10 showers. No waiting to use a shower and very clean. They also have a TV room where you can borrow DVD's and a washer (20 baht)/dryer (40 baht) - 1 hour each.

Great location - close to Central Pier, 2 blocks from BTS Surasek and near main road Silom.

Highly recommend.

The hostel seemed brand-new. It has great facilities, nice bathrooms, a common area with loads of computers, pool tables, ect. The price doesn't include breakfast, however, there is a little cafe on the first floor. The location is good as well, 5min walk to the skytrain station in Silom. The dorm are probably the most spacious ones I've ever see. Great place to stay.
