This hostel is located just next to the main party street- excellent location, since you can't hear all the party people and don't have to walk home from the party. I stayed in a seperate room for 700baht, plus 100 for early check in, since I came to bangkok with the night bus. The room was mainly clean, saw some... More

Absolutely not worth any amount of low budget. The bed is stained, and duct taped, the lobby infested with mosquitos and cockroaches, the staffs cannot properly communicate in English, and breakfast was just cold and sad, left for the flies to dine on.

The location of the hotel is near to khaosan road and can easily get transportation like tuk tuk and taxi . the room that I have stayed was quiet from the bars sounds.however the room is quite old and less maintained. Anyway, I was happy with the stay. We can't expect much for this rate.

Cheap and central but room quality was poor. It had air con for very cheap price, a tv (only Thai) and a bathroom for very cheap price. Bed sheets and floor were not clean and there were some cockroaches but you get what you pay for! Staff were friendly, let us keep our bags there for free. Unsure about the... More

Second time we stayed we asked to stay one more night and they said OK come down and pay tomorrow for that night. Next morning we had to leave at... More

i stayed for 3 nights in the single room. The room is very basic, small, with fan, hot shower, and free wifi. There is an old TV but only some channels worked. The breakfast was good but need variation. Don't expect too much if you want to stay here, you get what you pay. The good thing is this hostel... More

My partner and I have stayed in hostels all over but this one was really terrible and we struggled with being there for just two nights. I was afraid to walk around barefoot it was that dirty and the pictures were obviously taken about 10 years ago. Only positive I can mention is the location.

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.
