When in Bangkok, if you want to experience Khao San road, and if you are used to grubby places this place should suffice. If you want something more upscale you will have to pay for it!
We stayed in an a/c room which worked very well, it had a thermostat and was very quiet. The room also had a fan. It was 450B. They also showed us a room with a window and no A/c for 400B but we choice the windowless room as the noise from the street was really loud and there was no insulation on the window. The wifi was unreliable, kept falling in and out. The mattress was VERY firm, like concrete! The bathroom was small and the toilet was leaky but the shower worked well. No toilet paper supplied. The walls are VERY thin so you can hear people talking in the room next to you. When the room was dark we could see the light from the room next door through the cracks. The floor was a dirty, especially under the bed.
So you get what you pay for. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the indian food in the restaurant was very very good! 1min walk from Khaosan road (just across the street).
We stayed for 2 nights, but when going back to Bangkok we will stay somewhere nicer however it will cost twice the price.
