Stayed here twice, both times in private rooms. We suspected bed bugs after our first night, but didn't see any - my boyfriend had some bites, but couldn't be sure if it was mosquitos or something else. We loved the hostel environment, service, cleanliness, large bathrooms, and location (right by the BTS Surasak station and near Skybar and lots of awesome restaurants), so we went back for our next one night stopover in Bangkok. This time, the problem had gotten worse and we lifted the mattress in this room to find a bedbug infestation crawling in the corners of the wood bed frame. They seemed to take our complaint seriously and hopefully will do something about it promptly..but still these bugs are a nightmare to get rid of and we had to have all our stuff, and bags, washed and dried at high heat. Plus we got eaten alive in just one night..so beware and check the beds carefully to see if they have dealt with the problem, especially in the private rooms!

If you're looking for somewhere clean, friendly, modern and well-located in Bangkok, you HAVE to stay here! The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. I booked in a dorm room but they upgraded me to a private room for the same price as the dorms were full. They have a great lounge area with super fast wifi and free tea, coffee and snacks. It is ten minutes to the BTS and located on a quiet road near to good streetfood vendors and local restaurants. I will not hesitate to stay here again.

I rarely write reviews but Mile Map deserves one. I've been backpack traveling around the world for 24 months. Mile Map is the BEST hostel I visited in So. East Asia. It is CLEAN, QUIET, and REASONABLY Priced. The staff will go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure you have a pleasant stay; all questions are promptly answered with integrity. A self catered kitchen stocked with noodles, tea, and coffee is available to guests. All rooms have lockers. All beds are equipped with reading lamps and outlet plugs. A chill-out roof top balcony is available for guests to lounge and have a few beers. There are a plethora of restaurants and street vendors selling a variety of different local and non-local food. If you are looking for a party go to Koh San Road. If you are looking for authentic Thai hospitality come to the MILE MAP. I wish MILE MAP continued success!

This hostel is excellent, the staff were friendly and the facilities are great. It's clean also and there is a good sized social area.

If you want to be close to the tourist hub this probably isn't for you however it's a 5 minute walk to the nearest river taxi which is 15 baht (30p) anrd takes 15 minutes. There are also plenty of transport links near by.

In summary fantastic hostel good value but not the best location if you're looking yo be in the tourist bubble.

Good rooms. Quiet location but unless you insist in staying in rooms at the top of the hostel you can kiss a good nights sleep goodbye. There is no noise curfew and the staff make no effort to keep their or other peoples noise down even at 2am. Noise travels a lot in this building.

Free tea coffee and noodles is great. Tv's in the room but they don't work but then again they aren't advertised.

PCs available with printing and the wifi is ok. Very helpful staff when you have a query

Really nice location..A bit far from Koh San Road or the Palace or any other central attractions but easy to get there during the day by ferry or bus or sky train.. There is local market near by, beautiful park and Hindi temple.. The staff is really helpful and nice, good spoken English.. I stayed in 4 bed dorm,that was clean, air con,lockers for everyone.. There was hot water in communal showers..Internet sometimes slow but worked and was included in the price.. Great communal area,where I met many lovely people..
A bit overpriced as there are much cheaper place in Koh San..A bit a shame that there are not that many cheaper places around the town apart from loud Koh San..
Forgot to mention, there is a kitchen in the guesthouse so you can kind of make your own food which is a major plus after travelling for months and wishing to cook something yourself..

Good location even though you need to walk 15 mins to get to the street bazaar area
Clean but sometimes the rooms smell dumpy.
Nice roof terrace area.
Street outside a bit busy during day due to a temple nearby.
24/7 shop opposite the hostel so very convenient
