Lets face it: Its a B&B. Or let's call it hostel, but it's a fantastic one!
Rooms are clean, beds are big enough and comfy, it's full equipped with nice quiet AC, fridge, warm water, WIFI and nice deco. Best: the host. He knows everything, arranges everything and cares for everything. You will get tuktuks arranged and for free once a day, maps printed out, reservations made, tours arranged or he even has better ideas how to explore by yourself. Location is a bit off the typical tourist spots, but still next to the river, so stil fine. Neibourhood is very local, can get a bit noisy at times. Just one important note: DON'T walk from the skytrainstation with your luggage. Doesn't look far, but with a heavy bag in BKK heat it will feel far! I had a great time...
