Really happy with this hotel, probably the best accommodation I stayed in during my Thailand trip. Very comfortable and felt safe here. The man working at reception was soo helpful and kind, really great customer service!! Great location on Khaosan Road - keep this in mind if you are a light sleeper due to noise, though have seen mention of other rooms being quieter. Pool area, though seemingly not being used much at the time, was clean and tidy. Really recommend this hotel.

Staff were very friendly! Ideal for backpackers The room was clean however the bath room wasn’t the best . Worth the money Ideal location right next to all the street food and markets. Great for a group or couple I would stay here again for the location and price

The date we went was significantly earlier than the June 2020 date range trip advisor provides and I feel guilty that we haven’t got round to it before now (covid etc) but my girlfriend and I stayed here on multiple occasions in 2019 and had one of the best experiences of any hotels I’ve stayed in in my life. The service was impeccable with all the staff being incredibly helpful and friendly. The rooms were very clean and tidy, the bed was super comfortable and a massive treat after some of the places we’d stayed in cambodia and the services on offer were amazing especially given its location on khao san road which is normally so busy a lot of people avoid it. Our room had a balcony too which gave it a real old world French colonial feel. When you are in the hotel you wouldn’t even know you are there! The rooftop pool is literally an oasis amongst the chaos of Bangkok. My largest thanks need to go to John the managing director there. He went way beyond the call of duty, helping us find places, arranging transportation and even going as far as ensuring we had the same room we were in the first time over a month later and without prompting! Having spent a fair amount of time in south east Asia over the years I can categorically say that this is the only hotel in Bangkok I will stay in from now on. Can’t wait to get back out there again and really miss the place!

It's located in the heart of Khaosan Road. Full of night lifes & entertainment, close to many local foods or restaurant & bars. Everything is exactly the same as advertised, but better. It's clean, modern style and perfect location. Worth of value if you stay for couple nights and explore the Bangkok city. Highly recommend.

We stayed at Buddy Lodge at the end of a two week trip around Thailand. The hotel itself was modern and clean. Unfortunately, the location, on Khao San Road, was less ideal. The strip is bustling at night and there are some great bars and clubs but after 2/3am it takes a turn and feels quite unsafe.

What a nice surprise.. In the hotel all has a very nice standing and decoration and not the cheapest one, ( it is not always a case in Thailand.. here true leather chesterfield in reception, beautiful marble in shower, nice canopy bed with six pillow on each.. ) Rooms are very cosy with a traditional English nice touch style. Hotel have a lot of amazing facilities ( again surprising for this range of Hotel .. ) Full sport and gym installation, boxing area, Sauna and Steamroom; as well as a nice swimming pool top roofed.. fruit on the case .. everything is incredibly clean and staff is very kind. This is for me a 100% come back

Clean and khaosan road are not normally words used in the same sentence. However buddy lodge is a nice clean spacious room in the dirt and chaos of khaosan road. The roof top pool is lovely. The road is very noisy till the early hours but this is the same anywhere you stay on this street.
