“Dont stay here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The only good Thing with this hotel is the location. The hotel is dirty, the rooms are small and they smell bad. We had mould everywhere in the bathroom and there were Stains on the matress. This was not a good place, and im not picky.

Stayed here for a night while we were in Bangkok!!! Good location ( one star) and air con ( one star) apart from that, this hotel doesn't deserve anything else!!! Not bothered staff!!! Ppl hanging around the reception!!! In a small ally way!!! TINY room!!! TINY bathroom!!! Small insects on bed!!! Room soo small that coz of the double bed the door to the room don't open fully!!! Got a room on the third floor and there r no lifts n the stairs are very steep!!! I guess it's just okay for a night to spend in Bangkok and move along coz of the cheap room price but I won't recommend it to anyone !!!

The price advertised was not available. They tried to charge me extra for double room with shared bathroom. I declined offer so they gave me upgrade at less money. 500 baht. To be honest I took the room but with some regret. The place smells and is very dirty.

Needs a good clean throughout.

I would never stay again!!!

booked a single room there as my fav places were fully booked. decided to save money for next stay and this is why i stayed two nights.was tired so i didnt go and see the room first which was a mistake.yes, i could have changed rooms but was too tired to do that. suprised to see this kind of a crap room in soi rambuttri, hostelworld recommendations sucks big time. a single room 114 is next to the staircase, ac works okay even windows leak, tv worked ( only just al-jazeera in english channel) room is very very small and plastering was falling off the walls, window panes rotting.shared shower room was clean and toilet also which was much appreciated.bed clean and sheets and towel okay so that helped a lot. I couldnt close the windows properly and no, i didnt feel comfortable leaving my bags there as someone CAN easily just pull one of the 3 windows open and get in. i locked al my bags into the bed.also the door has just one lock no bolt inside the room. decided to take all valuables to the safe and had to buy my own lock for the safety box..how low can you go, "hotel" doesnt even provide locks for the deposit box..young man at the reception was nice and friendly though and he gets my best wishes.

There are so many hostels with a similar name so please make sure this is the correct place you want. This place is a great value for the price. With that being said, there's really nothing special about it. The wifi was extremely slow and it couldn't even load email. I booked a 4 bed, got put in a 6 bed. The staff was ok but there were a few who were very unpleasant to speak with. The location is good and is walking distance to Khao San Rd. and palace. Overall, it's just an average hostel. I would not stay here again due to many other low budget hostels in the area.

Room Tip: Dorms are on the top floor....stairs can be annoying during hot/humid days.

This hotel had the worst service of any hotel I have ever stayed in, primarily because of one surly, indifferent, rude, discourteous and completely unhelpful member of staff on reception. They have already been referred to in earlier reviews and I'm astonished that the Hotel continues to employ them. Other members of staff were helpful and courteous.

The hotel itself is not like the photographs; the bedroom was dirty, dark and dingy. Altogether I couldn't wait to leave. There are plenty of better places to stay nearby.

Overall is quite ok, but the room is not as large as what picture show...
And the toilet/shower room is not convenient, shower is not functioning properly
and no cloth hanger around.
For budget trip, this might be a average hotel.
