“Not recommended!”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Stayed here only one night, as i wanted to be near the emporium.nothing special staying in this hostel ... looked like a place built to milk first-time visitors to bangkok. The staff could hardly speak english and the prices of the FnB were at the prices of mid-range restaurants in bangkok.
For a new hostel, i would say that the design of the toilets and the dorms have been poorly executed.

The place itself is not too bad but there are so many things that make staying there inconvenient, if not bothersome.
It's a little far from the center and located on a very busy street. Bring your earplugs it's hard to sleep with all the noise!!
Second, the showers and bathrooms are crammed together in a corner of the building and not separated by genders. There are 2 showers, 2 toilets and only 1(!) basin with a tiny mirror for the ENTIRE hostel, you have to get in line to brush your teeth in the morning. Also in front of the showers are 2 urinals so if you're lucky you get out of the shower and meet someone taking a wee... great.
The bunk beds are pretty sturdy but the upper ones are far too high up you have to climb quite a bit to get to your bed. The aircon was literally next to my mattress. I was freezing while the others where sweating. The blankets are made of some horrible synthetic material and very thin you're cold and start to sweat at the same time.
Fourth, the lockers are too small and old. One of them had some rotten sticky fruit juice stain in them that smelled terrible.
Somehow the whole concept of the hostel seems not very well thought out. Especially the layout of the bathroom is an invitation to filth, the only reason still it's rather cleanish is that the hostel seems to be pretty new.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms that face the street.

This hostel is near Phrom Phong station.It will take about 5 minutes from the station by walk.
Because of the big sign,1Yolo,you can find the hostel easily.
The staff are very familiar and kind.
I love 1Yolo staff.

If you need towels and ask the staff, you can borrow them.


And,many night clubs are at Skuhumvit, for instance, Nana,Thong Lo and Ekkamai.
So you can access easily if you like nightlife.
