The WE Bangkok had great reviews on TripAdvisor, and the photos looked nice, so we booked for our first night in Bangkok before leaving for the north, then for two more nights the following weekend. We checked in after long flights, the atmosphere was lively, staff friendly, bathrooms reasonably clean, and common area very welcoming. Have stayed in tons of hostels across Asia and the world, and overall, WE Bangkok made a decent first impression. However, when we got to our room (in a 4-person private suite) all 4 beds had small bugs crawling around in them. We noticed it when one of us lie down on the bed and was actually bitten by one! It was too late to switch hostels, so we just slept there anyway, but spent a very uncomfortable night... were going to tell the staff in the morning at check-out (quite early- 5am) but the guy at the front desk barely had his eyes open, pants unbuttoned, and was drinking, so we barely got our money back for the room cards and got to our airport transfer. We then tried to cancel the other two nights by email, several days in advance... the hostel said they never received the cancellation, despite us all forwarding it along (we were all copied) and we were charged the extra nights anyway. We might have just gotten unlucky with the bug-infested room, as others seem to have had better experiences, but not acknowledging our cancellation email or being coherent enough to speak to us in the morning left us all with negative feelings of this hostel.
