Odd location, but near to Queen Sikrit MRT, just one stop from Sukhumvit where you can connect to the Sky train. The hostel itself has nice rooms (we had a well appointed double) and really good facilities (wifi, washing machine, etc) and an absolute wealth of information on trips, getting around, food in the area, etc. Staff were very matter-of-fact, almost officious, when we were checking in, but mellowed later in the day. We were allowed to check in early for no charge as our room was ready. All in all, a very positive experience.

Location is good but a bit far from center of Bangkok and near to Queen Sirikit MRT station (5min) the location is really good for relaxing. I stayed in this hostel 3nights and met with really good guys and found good friends. staff is really helpful and great. price and quality is good and excellent value. rooms are clean and cozy and have private bathroom. wifi not bad and disconnected at 3:30 am every day. totally is great and if I wanna go to Bangkok next time I definitely choose this hostel.

Placed in a quiet area, quite far away from the chaotic Khao San Road, is nonetheless well connected to the rest of the city thanks to the close close underground station (always inexpensive).
The hostel is homey and well made, with quite spacious and clean rooms and some nice freebies (water, coffee, ice cream). Also the wifi connection is good. They provide all the information you could need to enjoy Bangkok at the best.
If you're looking for a relaxed and cheap stay this is the right place.

The hostel is superb in more ways than one..

- Spotless rooms, commune area, reception,
- The room is incredibly spacious (5 room dorm), with its own bathroom, one and a half beds per person, a locker for each bed in the room,
- Free ice cream daily, beers, drinks, and other day to day items on sale at the hostel,
- Free wifi throughout the hostel, and 3-4 computers provided for those that don't have their own,
- The owner is incredibly friendly, and more than willing to assist at all times - hostel got posters stuck up everywhere with what to do, how to get to places, etc..(invited us to have lunch with her - free of charge)
- Within 5 min walk from the train station, with tuk tuks and motorcycle taxis in walking distance, Tesco 10-15min walk from the hostel

This is one of the few cheap hostels in Bangkok (200 baht). I've been here a few nights now and it is pretty quiet both during the day and at night. But it depends on the guests, as the first night I was here, some door kept banging shut and then at 2am a woman checked out of the room and half an hour later someone else checked in! There are a few dogs in the immediate neighborhood, but they only seem to bark when given a reason to, though it does happen in the middle of the night. Rooms are spacious, not filled with as many beds as possible (at least not the women's dorm). And yes, these beds are hard, but I've been able to sleep on them. Clean enough I suppose. Wi-fi is very good. Be warned that the kitchen area only contains a microwave, full fridge and toaster oven - no stove. So you can't cook. The only real complaints I have are with the t.p. and the woman who seems to control the desk 24/7. She's a hard person, not real friendly, rather on the rude side. And if you check in for several nights while they're busy on a particular night, you'll probably be told to move to a different room. Lord knows why.

even the bed is not as comfort as the 1 in your home, but the surroundings is good. the terrace outside the hostel is just good enough to have an 'international' talk with others.
free coffee, free wi-fi, and if you are lucky, they will cook local foods for free, too.
