“Good value for what it offers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Good location even though you need to walk 15 mins to get to the street bazaar area
Clean but sometimes the rooms smell dumpy.
Nice roof terrace area.
Street outside a bit busy during day due to a temple nearby.
24/7 shop opposite the hostel so very convenient

This hostel was PERFECT. I was originally staying in another hostel in Bangkok and transferred with a friend to this one because Mile Map was more affordable and it was so, so worth it. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, the facilities are clean and comfortable and the location is fantastic. It's a five minute walk from the Surasak skytrain stop and close enough to all major attractions but not in an area that's swarming with tourists.

Room Tip: I would advise booking ahead of time, I just showed up the day of and most of the rooms were already...

This place is perfect for anyone looking for a quiet place to stay in Bangkok, out of the crowd. They have a nice top roof, good accomodations, and beautifully designed. The staff was wonderful and always there to help ! I higlhy recommend this place.

In terms of true hostels with actual dorm rooms, this is arguably the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The rooms are great, clean, with outlets for your electronics, great AC, etc. The bathroom is shared but it's fantastic, very large, and clean. One of my favorite aspects of this hostel is the lobby area which is very spacious with an assortment of couches and chairs and a big table to eat or play games at. As an added bonus, for me at least, Mile Map is not in the middle of all the insane action that Bangkok has to offer. I don't mind partaking in that on occasion, but having to live in it and sleep in it is unpleasant. With Mile Map, you can walk to the rail (10 minutes by my count, though I walk at a brisk pace) and go to the crazy parts of town. This hostel is down a quiet road in a seemingly wealthy area.

The staff is friendly and helpful and seemingly always around. I stayed up late and I don't remember ever seeing the front desk with no one behind it.

If you want to enjoy a little peace and quiet in Bangkok, this is the place to go.

We have stayed 3 different places in Bangkok and this was by far my favorite. The hostel is clean, modern, and full of amenities for the guests. It's not right on Khao San Road, but I consider this a good thing, you can sleep this way! Transport in Bangkok is so cheap that the location is no problem. The staff were some of the most helpful and friendly people we came across during our two months in Asia!

Very clean and modern. The receptionist was extremely welcoming and helpful. When our laundry didn't dry after two paid rounds, she put our clothes in their industrial dryer. The beds were comfortable. It is within walking distance to the water taxi, which is the best and cheapest way to get around Bangkok, avoiding the terrible traffic and tuk tuk scams. It was quite pricey, as are most hostels in Bangkok.

We stayed in this hostel for two nights. The hostel is brand new and very nicely decorated - funky, modern and clean. The staff were really helpful and there are snacks and tea available free of charge in the kitchen. I'm a vegetarian and the hostel in situated on the street with tons of vegetarian resturants on it - most of them Indian restuarants but there is a Thai vegetarian restaurant right next to the hostel. We didn't want to stay in the main backpacker's area so the location was perfect for us, it's also very close to a metro station so getting around is easy.
