“Basic and just about OK”
Reviewed March 15, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here for just the one night and whilst it is only 500 Baht the place is very basic. Staff are OK but I wouldn't say more than that. Don't think I will go back.

Stayed February 2012

I've been to this place several times. The rooms are really basic but are clean. The beds are really hard and there are no blankets, but then again, you don't pay a lot either.
The food in the restaurant is good and not too expensive.

There is no Wifi, but if you sit in the corner near the reception you can use the neighbors wifi!

Room Tip: The single rooms on the first floor can be a bit noisy

i couldn't believe the price in this area (160b for a shared bathroom single), also cant believe how my polish neighbours could pay 550b, i've seen the double rooms as well, and i would just put in extra 200b and went next door to a perfect new siam II. Anyway the single room had fan, was clean, no bugs, 2 windows into the walls, clean shared bathrooms (on each floor 3 showers and 2 'sinks'), walls were pretty thin but still seemed quiet, u can pay hourly for quite fast wifi.
If you just want to spend a quick night in Bangkok, this might be the place.

If you just have few days in Bangkok and want to spend them in the most alternative area in the city, this place is perfect. Near to everything, very cheap and very clean. The jazzclubs and ska-place is just around the corner. Its very very basic, the rooms feel like cells, but who cares?! You just going to sleep there. Take the more expensive rooms for 350 baht (!) and you get hot shower also. I will definetly stay there next time Im in town.

During several days at the guesthouse we notified them that the one electrical outlet in room 124, an upscale AC room was broken. Also the shower wand leaked half the water from the tankless heater. They never fixed these items. When the overhead fan was run on high, dust balls dropped onto the bed. The staff was friendly but never addressed any of our concerns. They offered to charge 20 baht to charge our phone! Toilet paper, locker, towels cost 20/10/40 respectively. Lonely Planet says well maintained. The chairs in the cafe were broken at the reinforcing rings around the legs. Poor management.

Room Tip: Check it out first

I was very surprised that this guesthouse has such good reviews. Maybe it was just my room but this place was quite terrible. Yes the location and price is great however I don't think it is worth it at all. There ARE bed bugs, I woke up with a rash all over my shoulder. There was no blankets provided, no toilet paper, the floors, walls etc were quite dirty. It is the size of a jail cell with a similar feeling to it. And the bathroom/shower combo is bearable with hot water but not very comfortable. There is no elevator and no help with bags if you are traveling with a lot of stuff. No openable windows in rooms. Even when we were booking the lady asked us if we wanted to look at the room first so even they must know how bad it is. My advice would be to pay an extra few dollars and go elsewhere. Even a hostel would be better.
