i stayed here with my boyfriend for 10 days recently. it was our 1st stop in bangkok. the staff were brilliant, spoke great english. its in a great location, a short taxi ride (like max 80 b) to get anywhere good. 10 min walk to kho san road. loads of taxis and tuk tuks nearby if you need to get anywhere. really cheap restaurants near by. found a few 5 mins walk from hotel where we could have a beer each, a main meal and a dessert for 325 b. hotel its self is brill. big clean rooms. theres cameras in the halls and places so you and you stuff feel safe. the breakfast in the morning is amazing. fresh fruit, cereal, toast, tea, some kind of eggs and rice and some kind of curry/stir-fry! you can have as much as you like, so we loaded up each morning! the wi fi is good to. really recommend. *****

This hostel was absolutely fabulous and we recommended in on our Thailand trip to all backpackers travelling to Bangkok.

- The breakfast ist awesome. You not only get the usual hostel stuff - toast, eggs, you know, what they call American breakfast - but also things like good tasting Thai food and corn flakes.
- Rooms are very clean, although ours was small, but we didn't bother - anyway you are in it mostly for sleeping, aren't you? They are cleaned daily; you get soap, shampoo and towels.
- Staff gets my highest marks. We had to deal with the tourist police, and they showed us where to go and what to expect from them. They are always friendly and eager to help.
- Location is ideal: 10 min to Khao San, but central enough to get everywhere by foot. If you take a cab, every driver knows the big Samsen street (where the hostel is located at the end of a side street: just tell the driver as address "Samsen soi 6" (Samsen road, side street number six")).
- I used my laptop with free WiFi in our room: connection was the best in Thailand so far.

Its about a 12min walk from khao san road, and there are plenty of nearer places. the staff is very nice and the breakfast was just awesome. very clean, good room service, laundry, internet. Booked first 7nites and then was very easy and inconvenient to book three nites before also and later change rooms when my boyfriend came to bangkok. i had an awesome time!!! comfy beds, good shower, aircon, TV, ... an elevator for the baggage but not for guests, staying on 5th floor can be sporty. price is not so low and not so high either. can use kitchen..

I stayed here for my first night in Bangkok and enjoyed it. Sure, it is a little more expensive than the places on Khao San Road but not much, and in return you get really nice rooms and amenities in a good location. Far enough from all the action to be quiet at night, but close enough to visit Khao San for drinks or dinner if you are so inclined and perhaps a 20-30 minute walk to the Palace and main temples.

The room was clean enough and came with two twin beds, a desk and chair, a closet, small refridgerator (filled with free drinking water) and a small balcony. If I remember correctly there was also a tv? I got free wifi with an excellent connection. From what I understood from other travelers was that the two computers in the lobby had a slow internet connection.

Breakfast was a pleasant surprise: good quality and quantity. Staff seemed nice enough, not too forthcoming but friendly in their answers to your queries.

Recommended for those who travel on a budget - though not a too tight budget, i believe i paid 12 euros per night? - and who are looking for a clean, complete room in a good and quiet location.
