first hotel in Bangkok and I was surprised at how nice the hotel was. it was clean and the toilets and showers were clean had no issues especially as it was a shared bathroom. the stairs were an effort to climb but we had air con in room and was nice. good location too!

Good place to sleep in bangkok, not expensive, with good location and everything you need - tv, fridge, cold water, internet, and a little hotel restaurant when you can eat breakfast, take a beer, etc. We left some things at penpark, at the end of trip we take them, nice personel:)

Good value for money. Friendly and helpful staff. Room wasn't cleaned the whole 5 days we were there but that wasn't a problem for us. This place is only a 10 minute walk to khao San road and grand palace area so not too far but far enough away that you don't get any noise. One downside is that there wasn't much opportunity to meet other backpackers but we did run into one or two.

Stayed here 3 nights in May 2013, traveling with a friend. We got a twin room (two twin beds), with en-suite bath/shower and aircon. The shower was a "real" one, with curtain and separate from the toilet. Water was always hot, and aircon was always cold. Felt secure with cameras all about, secure locks on the room doors, and a front gate that closes at night. Staff was very friendly, we even ended up having a few drinks with them as we were waiting to go out. They were always willing to help give suggestions or directions, or just shoot the breeze. There is a 24 hr front desk, so it is easy to fly in late and have an easy check-in. Location is nice because it is about 15 minutes walk from Khao San Road, but not close enough to be too loud. It can be a bit difficult to find the guesthouse by taxi at night (definitely use the Thai directions from their website), but once you do, you can get back easily. Would definitely stay again if I find myself in this part of BKK.

Room Tip: If booking through an online third party, be sure to email Penpark directly (or leave notes in reser...

Only a ten minute walk to Khao San, Penpark is tucked away and pleasant. The AC room was nice but service was minimal and the staff didn't go out of their way to make your stay the most enjoyable. There are some drinks and ice cream to buy, but no food. Good for quiet place and the Wifi is good.

We have stayed in several places around the khao San area and we really enjoyed pen park. The rooms are clean and big. Nice windows and a fan room works just fine. Share bathrooms are nice and clean as well. Large outside space with shaded tables and grassy area. Also set back a bit from the main roads so a nice retreat from the bangkok craze. We have stayed here twice and will stay again, also the staff is very kind which is always a perk. Fan room double goes for 550 baht just under $20 a night.

We liked the location (close to Khao San road, but fare enough for a good night of sleep). The rooms are very spacious and clean and the air con works! The communal bathrooms could have been more clean and definately need a renovation. Breakfst costs extra.
