“Fine Hostel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

I stayed in the dorms here and it was pretty good. Actually, I had a 10 bed dorm room to myself somehow so it was pretty incredible until a bunch of loud backpackers came in at 9am to unload their bags and plan their trip. But still, the setup was pretty goood. No real complaints. I pry wouldn't stay here again but I would recommend it to anyone looking for a decent place to lay their head for a few nights in the busiest city on the planet.

Stayed March 2014, traveled solo

Dear travellers,

Firstly, thanks for staying with us at New Road and for taking your time to review our property. We really appreciate the constructive feedback with both pros and cons.

We are particularly happy that you liked the location in one of the older areas of Bangkok – A conscious choice from our side and convenient for public transport and local life.
Specifically for our guesthouse, we see our staff as our most important asset, which is why we are truly happy that you found everyone kind and helpful. Good breakfast and cleanliness is yet another acknowledgement to our staff and all has been shared with them.

As for your other comments, it is important for us to clarify that our name – New Road Guest House – reflects what we want to be and are: a guesthouse. Not a youth hostel. As such we strive for that homey feel where all travellers feel welcome and travellers (of all ages) meet and exchange travel tales in the laidback common area.
This said, we also want everyone to get a good night’s sleep – and be ready to explore the city the day after. We strive to keep the noise down, and especially after midnight request travellers to go inside. We are sorry if we did not succeed in this during your stay and it has been passed as a reminder to all staff to be alert on this.

In all, thank you again for your feedback. We hope you enjoyed your stay in Bangkok and Thailand.

On behalf of all staff at NRGH

This hotel is quiet but it is not visable from main street esp in midnight . It does not impress me since we arrived in midnight and even taxi driver have no idea where it is . Rooms is ok but not good value.And if you have big luggage then it might be difficut bcs of stairs.

We stayed at New Road in December 2013 for over three weeks (we were waiting for our motorbike to arrive in Bangkok port and it was constantly delayed), and started to think of the place as home. Fan rooms are great value, and were all very clean. The communal area downstairs is a great place to socialise, and we met many other travellers whilst we were staying here. Free teas and coffees were another very appreciated bonus!

Location is brilliant - near lots of good street food and a perfectly manageable walk to the BTS. If, like us, you cannot be bothered with the noise and sleaze of the backpacker area then this really is a great place to stay and is very good value.

The staff were incredibly helpful and went out of their way to help us. We would definitely make this our go to place if we need to return to Bangkok. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 402 was our favourite of the fan rooms - small but great value!

From the start they where very friendly and helpfull, they helped me to book my bus to koh tao and to move around bangkok.
The rooms weren't the cleanest I saw, but acceptable. I celebrated the christmas with them, and in spite I was one of the only non danish it was a lovely night!
The best part of the place was the silence in the middle of bangkok!

I stayed in a dorm room for two nights; the rooms were clean and cooled by fans with bunk beds. It was nothing special, but far better than a lot of dorms I have stayed in.
The staff are beyond helpful, giving directions, maps, ideas on what to do, places to visit, organising tours etc. If it is your first time in Bangkok then this is a real help.
It is located quite close to the Sky train (about 15 minute walk), and only a couple of minutes walk from the river boat.
If you are after a party hostel, THIS IS NOT IT. It's a lovely atmosphere and very relaxed, but it's located about half an hour taxi ride from Khao San Road in a more relaxed area.
Overall, I would thoroughly recommend it.

first it seemed easier to find it as it was for me, until I understood what a "soi" is and then I had just to walk down the street from the sky train station. easy to find, if you coming out from exit 3 there and just follow the road down, cross mc donalds and starbucks on the way, cross the building where the sky bar from hangover 2 is located at and follow the road, its a walk of approx. 10 minutes. staff here is very friendly and helpful! close too is also a boat station what makes it easy to reach the old town and the grand temple. the rooms are so clean!! I always see someone cleaning something somewhere. the dorms have a locker where you can put your valuable belongings in. I did not try the breakfast but it looked good as well! you could have dinner here if you are too lazy to walk around the area. at all a great place!
