My wife and stayed at the Niras Bankoc hostel for three nights on a rest stop in Bangkok. We were traveling throughout Southeast Asia and this had to be one of the best hostels/hotels that we stayed in, absolutely great.
The staff were superb, extremely helpful (found a great bus to Chiang Mai), just all-round wonderful.
There is about a 5-10 min walk to Khao San road, which I thought was fine. Compared to Khao San the surroundings of the hostel are a bit more "authentic".
