Well, for sure I didn't expect a place like a hotel but I even couldn't imagine something similar. The dirtiest place I've even seen! I would even say disgusting - when you enter the hostel you call easily smell a really heavy smell - people smoke inside and I guess drink in the evening so you can easily smell at everywhere. If you are lucky you will have a bed and if not - you will sleep on the floor on the matress. We arrived at 11 and we had to wait till 14 because no one could explain us where we could sleep. Well, it always depends how picky you are, but I have seen a bathroom that it was so much dirty that I even wouldn't think to take a shower there (moreover it was broken, what's a pity!). Don't even think to pay for the private room to get better conditions - we've seen them and it's as much ugly and disgusting as dormitory. The place is located in Thonburi, on another river side so for sure to get to the city center you have to take a taxi. At the end we left this place after 1 hour - paying 3 euro more we got a clean triple room with shower, AC and CLEAN blankets always in the same district, I know overstay is cheap but think twice before saving money.
