“Great value and friendly staff”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

Our first experience of Bangkok Guesthouse's and it was a good one. Sivarin is located in a good spot near (short walk) Kao San Rd down a small quiet alley. Good value air conditioned room, complimentary water, breakfast included, decent wifi, shared bathroom. Staff were very helpful when asked for directions. Overall pretty tidy and enjoyed our stay.

We stayed here for one night in August 2013. Paid the extra for air-con (it was the only room left), which worked fine and in the end was literally a god send!! The staff spoke good English and we were able to leave our bags until check-in time. Breakfast was basic, but more than you get in a lot of other places. Shared bathroom was clean and a lizard joined me. Only about 10 mins walk from Khaosan road. The addition of the safe in the bedroom was welcome too!

Room Tip: Go for the aircon, you'll thank me later.

Stayed here for 1 week, and it was really good. Good breakfast, clean and cheap rooms, and close to everything. The staff is very friendly and helpful, one day when we went on tour they made breakfast for us one hour before it startet! Go here :)

Very affordable accomodation. We were in a double room with shared bathroom and it was really clean and well maintained. Breakfast was included in the room rate and it was good. The guesthouse is 10 mins walking from Khaosan Road.

Room Tip: If you can spend a few baht more but take a room with AC. In march there were 35° and we only had a...

Nice hostel not too far from Koh san road. our room was clean with 2 fans and no air con but was fine slept really well, also had a small balcony which had a table and chairs. Staff were friendly, only thing , it was quite hard to find to begin with but you cant really blame them for that.

I stayed here three nights in a two bunk bed dorm on the first floor.
The room was cleaned every day and was spotless. The bed was comfortable. There is AC in the room that kicks in late afternoon. There's a simple breakfast served on the patio that's included.
But the best part was the manager
Min Min, who made every attempt to be helpful. She was great.
The toilet and shower are clean and just down the hall.
There's wifi and a house computer.
The location was great for me as if was away from all the craziness of Kao San Road but just a short walk if you want to be closeby.
Overall, I would highly recommend Sivarin Guesthouse for solo travelers
particularly backpackers.
There are also a couple of private rooms upstairs for couples and two people.
