Only visited the area one evening during our Bangkok stay. It certainly is a very crowded place for backpackers from around the world with lots of cheap accommodation and street food options. The restaurant food quality was average. Drinks prices were ok, loud music everywhere.

I am not sure as it’s a very turistic street. Better do it in a proper clinic or proper beauty saloon which has good reviews.

24 hours. If you want to visit perhaps between 12 midday and 12 midnight. Bars legally have to close at 1am.
