As a seriously budget traveller, I'm no accommodation snob, but for some reason this room felt a bit grimy. Location across the road to Khaosan Road and near some really good street food markets, The Rainbow Khaosan is perfectly situated but the rooms are musty, windowless and very stale. There are places directly on Khaosan Road which in hindsight were... More

The rooms are very dated, but clean - the staff were very helpful and super friendly! What was great was the hostel is literally round the corner from the infamous Khaosan Road which was perfect for us as we wanted to party. A few minor issues: we got a room that was supposed to have AC but when we got... More

My boyfriend and stayed there just a few days ago in their apparent deluxe room. Their idea of a deluxe room is aircon that smells, a rock hard smelly bed with a large towel for a duvet and genuinely an unpleasant room. The sink was leaking in the en suite so it made the whole room smell damp and similar... More

Lovely restaurant downstairs but this review is for the accommodation... It was terrible. Stank of sewage in the room, walls were falling apart, we could hear rowdy northerners down the corridor until 5am, the en-suite was much much worse than the horrible shared toilets. The duvet was literally a towel. No windows. The bed stank... HOWEVER the location is fantastic... More

The room, bed sheets were dirty and in 5 days nobody came to clean. Mattress is so hard very poor wifi connection. The position is good just near khaosan rd. Good indian food. You will find cleaner places for same money. Guys are nice just if u eat there.

Having visited and sampled several other restaurants over preceding days our family of four, including two young kids really enjoyed an excellent Indian meal, with fantastic service and great atmosphere. Situated just yards from the vibrant and exciting Khao San Road.

First off, the location is great, it's located slightly off khao Sans main road which means that the hostel Is quiet at night and you can get a good nights sleep- but it's also a very short walk to the Main Street. It's also opposite a 7/11, a Boots and lots of shops/bars which is handy for travellers. The staff... More

I had a great time. Dont expect al lot of quality, but the rooms are very cheap. Perfect for backpackers. The guys who work here are very funny, and helped in a very polite way. They also serve great food (if you love Indian food). I laughed a lot, and felt like im at home. Great place!

The staff were very friendly, the food was decent and had good portions. It is situated in the heart of Koh san Road if that's what you are after. There is no communal area, however that is common with hostels in Asia. but the mattress felt like I was sleeping on wood, hard to get comfy. Good rates compared to... More

It is a good, simple and clean hostel, with good price. The staff is friendly and willing to help and the room was very silent during the night. I am very glad I found this place after a full day inside a bus, when I was in need to rest to travel again the next day.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
