I have stayed in this Guest house on 4 separate occasions and would definately stay again. The location is great - it's a few minutes walk one way to the Khao San Road ( the famous backpacker street, where there are lots of restaurants, bars, market stalls, small supermarkets & travel agents) and a few mins the other way to the river where you can catch a river bus to see many of the sights.
I think you can book online and pay on arrival on their website.
The surrounding area is a bit scruffy, but I've never felt unsafe here.
It has a small swimming pool, nice basic restaurant & travel desk. The rooms are key card entry, have a safe, air conditioning, a mini fridge, & ensuite with hot shower. It is basic, but comfortable. Has everything you need for a cheap price. It has 3 other guest houses in it's chain.
I have also stayed in the New Siam I, which is much cheaper, nearer the Khao San Road, clean, but even more basic - no hot water there. I would like to stay in the New Siam Riverside - I popped in to have a look when it was being built about 7 years ago and looked really lovely.
When you're in Bangkok the best night market is called Suan Lum and is next to Lumpini Park, which is also worth a visit.
