“Backpacker prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We stayed 2 nights at the 'guest house' upon our arrival in Bangkok. We had a double room with a fan and attached bath.
The room was well worn but as clean as it could be.
The shower pressure was good and there was only cold water. However, with no air conditioning, a cold shower is preferred. Soap, towels, toilet paper and cotton buds provided.
I would choose a room with air conditioning next time. The fan works well but there is no other air flow.
It is a cheap place and you get what you pay for. It's good for budget accommodation.
Located in a good spot. Easy access to food and shopping.
Staff spoke English and were okay.

Room Tip: Unless you like being hot, choose air conditioning.

This was my BKK home for years. It used to be cool and kitschy, but has become terrible. For the last year, the ceiling on the 2nd floor has been leaking. The A/C units are very weak in all the rooms. The blanket is similar to a large towel (terry cloth) with no topsheet. Also, the TV has no English channels.

Not only all that, but they've increased their room rates. Other places in the area are much nicer for the same, or slightly lower, cost.

Typical backpackers place - small rooms (extremly small), shower combined with toilet. Very safe. Tourists should book room with AC only - with fan it's to hot and stuffily while opening the window it's noisy from the street. Well located. Value for money for short visit.

Room Tip: None of the tuk-tukers and taxi drivers know this place - ask for the business card on thai on the r...

K S Guest HOUSE

Me and my Lovely Wife;) stayed in K S guest house twice already while we have been to Bangkok!!!
Rooms are not best,but lets say they OK!!!
We have paid 400 Baths,so good price for backpackers;)) a part of that rest is really good.
LOCATION is pretty good,because is 5 min walk from KOHSAN ROAD,so you can avoid all crowds and busy;) unless you are enjoy this kind of things,so then you can find your accommodation directly
on Kohsan road,but I wouldn't recommend that;)
Staff in K S GH,are very friendly and helpful;) especially one girl,I can't remember her name,but her nick name is ELIZABETH ;)
I was calling her by this name;)
She was always smiling,also helped us to organize some things;)
You could feel that positive ENERGY!!!

Paid 490b for a twin room and it was literally 2 tiny mattresses with a cold shower. What we expected, so it was fine. Great location, easy to get a taxi and hotel lobby staff will translate where you wish to visit for taxi driver if you ask them :) make sure you bring a padlock to lock your door when you go out!

Friendly and nice stuff,helpful and good service, in good location especially for tourists, clean rooms, very comfortable beds,nice public areas and the price is fine.The bad things are that the rooms are REALLY small , the internet connection is REALLY bad in the most rooms, and it's really noisy. But very recommended for holidays, I would definitely stay there again! VERY RECOMMENDED.

Room Tip: corner rooms on the second floor are the best choice - because of the noise and the scales.
