“Great Hostel!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

This hostel was great! The staff was friendly and helpful and more importantly the rooms, bathrooms and facilities were new, clean and great! I stayed in a 4 bedroom dorm room, had aircon, extremely clean room and bathroom. It was an extremely nice place to stay if looking for a comfortable hostel. Ko San Road is not very close, but it is right next to the Metro line, so if you need to go to the airport, train or anywhere you can get there quickly. A little more of a challenge if you're planning on staying up all night on Ko San. The Hostel was new and very comfortable!

I highly recommend this place. It is brand new and the rooms are spotless with excellent bathrooms. They also have dorms (also one women only) and those look also very nice. There is a pleasant common area where you can watch tv, read a book and do some games. You can wash own clothes (50 bath per wash) and there is wifi al around the place.
Furthermore, the lovely host is very sweet and exceptionally helpful.
Yes, the place is a little bit out of the tourist guesthouse area. But we looked to stay in a normal Thai neighbourhood which ostensibly not surrounded by yelling tuk tuk drivers and the sky train is just around the corner!
We will stay there again next and then i'll post some pictures!

This is a pretty standard HI hostel offering. Basic facilities at a decent price.
The rooms are basic and clean. I was in a 4-bed dorm. There is AC and a fan. Each bed has a small lockable compartment. The bathroom was well equipped and clean.
Wifi available. Breakfast buffet was tea, coffee, juice, cereals and toast.

Wonderful hostel! Very very new and thus everything in great condition. Stayed in the female dorm which has nice curtains around each of the bunks so very private. Also the bathroom is a seperate room to the actual dorm so that is quite private too. Also a very good location for the skytrain and also the minibus to the floating market- just ask the staff and they will help you! Everyone was very friendly, so we really enjoyed our stay here!

HI Mid Bangkok was great. Perfect location (10 minutes walk from Victory Monument BTS station) as it is very close to BTS and major hub for all buses and vans going to adjoining provinces. One thing we realized after talking to the staff is that this particular hostel was just opened in mid 2012, therefore all the facilities are brand new and very nice. Staff was also very helpful to give us advice on activities to do/see while in Bangkok.

Nicest accommodations I've ever seen for a shared dorm (I stayed in the 10-bed female dorm) - privacy curtains, storage locker, private outlet and light, and immaculate bathrooms. Free breakfast, hot water for tea all day, hot waters, and helpful staff. The use of the computer is 100 baht/hour, but the wifi connection is free and is incredibly fast throughout the building (fast enough for non-frustrating skype conversations!). My only suggestions are: 1) Better directions to find the place. Once you get off the BTS Skytrain at Victory Monument, instead of exiting down to street level right away, find the elevated walkway that heads towards the monument and wraps around it to the right-hand side. Follow the walk way until you get to the Fashion Mall Corner, and at this corner take the stairs down to street level. Continue along the main road away from the monument (you should see Fashion Mall to your left, and to your right across the street the McDonald's and the Corner One Mall). Walk for a few blocks, past the 7-11, and then you'll see a sign for Hi Mid Bangkok on a small lane that goes to the left, and it's right there. 2) Air conditioning (or at least more fans) in more areas of the building. The rooms themselves are air-conditioned (sometimes a little too air-conditioned), but everywhere else in the building (hallway, bathroom, lounge, loft) is not, and I wish I had been able to spend more time in the common areas but sometimes it was just way way way too hot.

Room Tip: The dorm rooms are a good value - 390 baht/night as of June 2012 - whereas the private rooms are act...

This place is brand new. I booked the female dorm and had it to myself. Cost 390bht. If he tries to charge you 490bht tell him the internet site says 390bht. They have free wifi - pronounce it wee fee or else they won't understand. There are books to read. They have internet 100baht per hour. I found a place across the road, down an alley near the bus stop sign, that offered 15bht an hour for internet. They gave me a free souveneir magnet on leaving. The female dorm is right next to the female toilets. The toilets and shower and very clean. The toilet has louvre doors and the shower and wooden teak sort of floor. The bunks have curtains and night light and locker. Their is also a lift, and the dorm is airconditioned. There is also a nice chill out area with tv, and a loft. They are a 3minute walk from Victory Monument station on the sky train and there are heaps of buses that you can catch. There is also a market nearby.
