We stayed in this hostel during our visit to Bangkok in July. My recommend is short. Go for this place if you look for something cheap. Anyway, keep in mind many places in town offer room with same rate but attractive locations and helpful staffs.
Go to Khaosan Road or Samsen Road or Silom instead of this remote and unconventional hostel that staffs could not even communicate standard English. Trying to have your breakfast or asking something basic can cause you headache. No TV , no mosquito net , and no internet access in your room.
Hostel is in bad neighborhood. Not easy to locate if you are new for this country. It is next to small street and garage. So, this is paradise if you love to sleep with noise of traffic, motorcycle, garage, and gasoline. At night, the noise from the road was kinda noisy.
For that reason alone, I will not stay there again.
The Thai manager is nice but the owner didn't have a sense of hospitality and privacy. Asking too much, talking too much, then bothering too much. We got wrong information once then. Anyway, this is understandable since he is not an inhabitant
My brief suggestion. You get what you pay. Good for really low budget. Better to avoid if you are new or with your family. Plenty of decent places to stay at a reasonable price and good neighborhood in Bangkok.
