“What a wonderful treasure.”

I really enjoyed this. The best choice I made while in Bangkok, and am going to make it again the next time I want to visit this fine bit of paradise. Bee is a very warm and pleasant woman to talk to, and made me feel right at home.

I really enjoyed this place, it was really clean for the price and I had no complaints with the living quarters. I personally really liked the location, the walk to the MRT was no big deal as I'm used to walking, and the motorcycle taxis are only like 20 baht if you don't want to walk it. It's right in Ratchada so theres plenty to do if you're interested in seeing Thai life in Bangkok--easy to get to Siam Square too

it's a friendly place to stay. quite a walk to MRT station (sutthisan if i not wrong) but it's OK and from there can can go anywhere. You can find some food near there, close to 7eleven you can also order a massage. not too far from CS meeting and there is a gathering every sunday night to all tourist who want to come, you pay though, but it's nice to meet other couchsurfers there.

We arrived in Bangkok late and by the time we got to Tailek's House, it was way past midnight but Bee had actually been gracious enough to wait up for us, despite having her little boy to look after as well. (he was sleeping on the sofa bed in the living room where Bee waited for us to arrive)
What can I say about this place? WOW is the first impression. It is more like a home away from home! There is an actual working kitchen....I don't think you'd be able to get this "homey" anywhere else, plus it is pretty modern too compared to some Thai/Asian kitchens that we've seen around S.E.A!
The dorm is spacious and very clean, with a/c and your own locker plus the keys to it and to the g/h in case you were going to out and will be back late. We were given the 2nd floor dorm, because the 3rd was fully booked. It was nice to not see a cramped dorm like in some places we'd seen on our journey so far.
The 2 bathrooms are really clean as well, and there is even a washing machine where you can do your own washing for a small fee. You can make your own coffee/tea/beverages if you had some with you, and even, buy food to cook in her kitchen if you wish to!
We took a nice walk down to the market area and let me tell you this - you kind of feel really special being the only foreigners there! We are within city limits and yet, the feel of this whole place is so local! It is so heartwarming to get smiles from the locals and the way they talk to you, and try to speak English with you...it is an amazing feeling. I really really love the fact that Tailek's House is situated in an area where it is not too far away from the city center, and easily accessible by the MRTs - there are 2 close by, so it is really very convenient. Whoever that was saying that it is far away from the city ought to have done their homework. It is a few stops to Sukhumvit, and also, the Chatuchak Weekend Market, to name a couple major lines,and at the end of the line, Hua Lamphong train station! How awesome is that?! We actually took the direct rail link from the Suvarnabhum Airport to Makkasan, and then hop on at Petchaburi station, that took us straight to Sutthisan. Easy peasy!
One delightful and endearing thing about staying at Tailek's House, is waking up to the lovely aroma of Bee's curry! Bee has a small cafe which she serves up authentic Thai food, curries and soups. We ate at her cafe everyday while we were there, it was THAT good! :) Oh and btw, I managed to get a cooking lesson from Bee herself as she also runs cookery classes for guests who want to impress their family back home with authentic Thai dishes!!! :)) So yeah now I know the secret of a great Phad Thai! ;)
It was sad when we had to leave after a wonderful week at Tailek's House. But we know that the experience we have had is nothing short of amazing and unforgettable. We know for sure where we will be staying at the next time we fly into Bangkok again!
Thank you Bee and Tailek!

For 250 bath you have a shared room with 4 people and A/C. The bathroom is on the 3rd floor...there is WI-FI but no breakfast. The location is pretty bad because it's far away from the city center. If you arrive by the airport, please take a Taxi-Meter...we didn't know and we take a "private" taxi very expensive who couldn't found the guesthouse. Bee is really nice and she was there when we arrived in the middle of the night!

the stuff is friendly but not enough to visit it for a second time. The main issues is that it's too far away, even from public transport so you're depending on taxi's and they'll rip you off as a tourist.
The mattresses are extremely hard by the way.

Bee, the proprietor, is lovely, very friendly and sweet, easy to get along with. She is also a great cook, and will help you learn how to make delicious pad Thai.

The location is good if you want to be immersed in a Thai environment, it does take a while to get to downtown or touristy areas either by taxi or public transit. From the airport, it should not be more than 300 Baht, though taxi drivers will happily take 450-600 Baht off you if you let them. By the meter it is actually about 250-280 Baht. Useful tip: when at the airport, go to departures to get your taxi instead of arrivals, and you avoid a 50 baht fee, though they might try to charge you it, it is not required from the departures section. Anything more than 300 Baht is ripping you off, though they will happily bundle you into the taxi without telling you the price.

The facilities are basic but quite clean. You are likely to be treated more like a friend than a guest, and often there are numerous friends about who will offer to share food. You have access to a kitchen on the ground floor, though you will be expected to clean up after yourself as it is a communal kitchen.

There is also a little noodle shop on the ground floor and food is delicious and very affordable. There is a computer which can be used for a few minutes at a time, though there are plenty of very cheap internet cafes in the neighborhood.

There is no elevator so you will need to go up one or two flights of stairs, keep this in mind.

There is a shared bathroom that can get quite busy, it is on the ground floor, through the kitchen to get to it.

Overall, great value for the price, not a luxury place, but has a very nice down to earth home like feel to it.
