This is my third time staying at this hostel. The first time was when I first arrived to Thailand. Most backpackers look for cheap guesthouse along the trip to keep traveling. This is defenetly not the cheapest you will get, it starts about 390 baht per night. But when you first arrive to a new place you probably want something a little bit more comortable to compensate the jetlag, to rest, etc. I think this hostel is perfect if you are starting your trip, you get free wifi, A/C everywhere, a nice common area with T.V. to watch movies and socialize and is near Khao San Rd, but you avoid all the noise of the party. The staff is great, they're all friendly and will always help you if you need something. So as I said, Bangkok is where everyone begins and end, so when starting you probably have the budget to pay that extra which I think is worth it, and at the end, if you are not broke then you won't regret paying the extra money, you'll know where thats going.
And almost forgot, it is really clean and they change the sheats and towel every couple of days.
I defenetly recomend it.
