“An oasis”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

You walk down the hot musty busy streets turn a corner and end up in a calm beautiful oasis that is chern. I was so impressed with this place. Within the actual area there isn't much going on but you're a 10 minute walk away from the market and the new town with all the malls etc was a 10 minute tuc tuc ride. The place was clean and calm with good tv channels. Not great if you want to be in the middle of it all but it also means it's quiet which is great. Much recommended.

Clean spacious rooms, a very comfortable cosy bed and modern facilities with great air con. It's in a nice quiet bit of town but a very short walk from Khaosan. I had to leave when my Khaosan hostel (which was very poor in comparison) booted me. The staff are friendly and helpful and if/when I return to Bangkok I'll stay here.

Room Tip: I stayed in a dorm but the private rooms looked really nice as well.

What a great place to stay. Not in the main hun centre of Bangkok, but we found that a good thing. Walking distance to the Grand Palace.
The hostel is lovely and clean. We stayed in a twin room which was a big size and nice bathroom.
Staff were very friendly, chatty and helpful.
Definitely recommend staying here if you are happy not to stay in the centre of Bangkok.

This place is very clean, they clean the rooms twice a day or something! It's very modern and all white, with big rooms and comfortable beds and international TV. I had this misfortune of getting quite ill in Bangkok and the room here was really pleasant to spend the days recovering in. Good location, maybe fifteen or twenty minute walk to the grand palace. Lovely staff. Highly recommended. Only downside, if you see it that way is that it's a bit quiet.

Very clean, modern, eco friendly and minimal hotel in great location. Breakfast is very tasty (although is not included in price) which you can eat in very decent lobby. After checking out you can leave you luggage to have more time for sighseeing. If you are taking the taxi driver doesn't know - tell 'giant swing' as landmark and it is just nearby.

For new year celebration is was perfect choice just in the middle of all festival fun.

We stayed here on its 3rd night after opening, though the only thing you could tell about it going through its teething period was the fact the credit card machine was a little problematic and that taxi drivers had no idea where it was (note, most taxi drivers do not read, therefore written instructions are useless, find a map)

The hotel calls its self a hostel but as we had double rooms to ourselves it was indistinguishable from a hotel. Each room had individual artwork on the wall, making it feel fresh and boutique. Each room also had a safe (wasnt bolted down yet) fridge (hadnt been turned on yet and ensuite WC + shower.

It was clean, very reasonable, nice, smart design and I loved every minute i spent there in my 4 night. The staff were super friendly and helpful, one even went as far as taking a rickshaw with me to the minibus terminal to ensure I safely got on the right minibus. And a great location, walkable to the grand palace and Khao San Road but tucked away so nice an quiet.

Downsides were minor, hard to find, no breakfast facilities and not much around for breakfast locally, no bar to have that well earnt night cap after a hot day in Bangkok

Room Tip: A double room is a very affordable option here for those vary of sharing dorms
