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.

Bangkok is so hot and this hostel offers fan and air-con rooms. We stayed here twice because it is really cheap. We paid around £5 for a private room for 2 nights, albeit it was a fan, not an air-con room. Its a bit dirty but the staff are really lovely and helpful. The Indian food they serve downstairs is...

I really liked this place. My friend and I got a two bed room with air-con and bathroom ensuite for 250baht/piece which is about $7usd /pp (500 total=$14). This place directly across the street from Khaosan Road. Nice staff. Room was clean, no bed bugs, and they do have wifi. Checkout is noon! Highly recommend this place.they also have locked... More

We booked a private fan room here for a day in Bangkok between flights so we would have a place to shower and store out luggage, bags, etc.. For the price and expectations it did the trick. It certainly could use a cleaning in the halls and areas going up to rooms but all in all, we thought it was... More

The conditions were terrible. I have never been in such a squalid place. There was dirt on the walls, the toilet was unacceptable, and cockroaches were running all over the place. I didn't expect anything extraordinary for this price, but there are hostels with much better conditions for just a few bucks more.

Please don't listen to the negative reviews. This is budget accommodation at basement prices. Don't come with the preconceived idea of a 5 star hotel and remember this is Bangkok, not Dubai. Some of the comments on here are very naive. The facilities are adequate and the people running the hostel are extremely friendly and helpful. The food is out... More

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.
