If you don't have much valuable with you and you're just looking for a place to lay your head at night and dump your stuff in the day then I'd recommend this place. low season 350baht, high season 370baht, like, 7quid/10dollars to stay in a double room with shared bathroom just off Khao San but tucked away enough that you can honestly get a decent night's sleep without having to drink too much to knock yourself out.
Shared bathroom was infact shared with about 15 other room at least, 2 toilets, 2 showers and 1 urinal, having said that I never had to race anyone to get there first they were always free and clean. The rooms were decent, as I say I wouldn't leave the crown jewels in there but if you have your own padlock you can use the safes downstairs free of charge which is handy.
In all honesty though the staff were all pretty terrible, the waitresses were nice enough, it would be the receptionists that were the main culprits, especially the chap that takes over for late afternoon/evening.. there are some people in the world that are just not cut out for customer facing job roles, this guy is my example.
The food in the restaurant is nice and dead cheap for the area was a real bargain. I'd never seen apple pancakes anywhere though so I gave them a try, if you take anything away from this review is do not try the apple pancakes!
