“Decent budget guest house, but difficult to find.”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

I was happy with my room for the price, I would have stayed there again on my return to Bangkok, but I found the room difficult to find.
I was a solo female traveler and I was careful to remember which way I walked when I left the guesthouse but still had to walk around for 30 minutes at 4am on my own trying to find it, I'm usually good with directions, but there are so many alleys that look the same around Koh San Road. If you're a female travelling alone I wouldn't recommend it, because getting lost down dark alleys is never fun.

Stayed here for a couple of days had a triple room on our first 2 days then transferred to twin room.. Twin room is much nicer than the tripple.. Cannot use wifi in your room u have to stay at the lobby to get a connection.. Maybe a style so you dont have to use your aircon if you want to take some rest and use internet.. Had our breakfast which is very reasonable for the price and the serving is for 2..

Stayed here a couple weeks ago for 3 nights. 500 Bhat/night. Rooms in this part of town are hard to come by. We walked around for an hour and most places were booked solid. We snagged one of the few rooms left (#413)

The good: Ground floor lobby is the best feature. It's very big, good wifi, decent food, fairly quiet, good place to chill and recharge your batteries. Also good is each room you can pad lock from the outside so noone can pick the lock and get in. Also lockers downstairs which also require your own padlock. Staff were not overly friendly.

The bad: Room was old old old. Blanket on the bed looked like is was older than me (I'm 34). We were like...ewww...and just stuffed it in the closet. You are a block off Khao San road but can still hear the thump of the base. A bit noisy, bring ear plugs!!

The bathroom was about the size of a bathtub and mildewy smelling. I wore my sandals in there to shower.

Overall the room sucked but for 500 Bhat/night in this area this is what you'll get anywhere. We decided to go cheap on the room in Bangkok and spend our money on the nice hotels on the islands.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room on the 3rd or 4th floor, the stairs are steep and a pain. Look at the room bef...

It was my first time there and i was so impressed by the reviews here. So i had booked a room with a/c before i go. I arrived to the place (around 8pm) and very easily found the place. My booking was still there and the girl on the lobby, dont know but she was so angry and weird. I thought that she must be tired or something, i didnt care because i just needed a room to stay. I went to the room, disappointed a lot, the room was totally different from the photos (of the website). Dead bugs on the ground, very old bed and etc. I went down stairs and told the reception (that woman) that i want to change the room and she told me i can not, and she was super rude and not friendly. Whatever, i checked in and paid the money. I went downstairs a little while to use internet and asked the girl how i can use it, she (again) in a rude way, explained my how to use the computer. I was really shocked. When i was using the computer, another guy came and she did the same to him. So i was sure that she has a problem. I left the place the other day, a big disappointment. The hotel very close to the New Joe (Four Sons) is amazing, i stayed 2 weeks and paid less. If you are so desperate and can not find a place to stay, New Joe is okay for 1 night but otherwise stay away. Pay 3 more dollars and stay in bettr places, with good rooms. Stay away.

for so less money you can't get more somewhere else. the location is very good in khao san road & you have a shower and a wc on your own. the restaurant is very nice and the food is great.
if you don't need a pool, warm water and a very pretty room you'll be right at new joe.
for traveller its the perfect recommodation.
you get the most important things you need: clean room with shower and a lot of information at the desk.

Referred by other backpackers. Paid 300 baht for a huge king and ensuite. Not the cleanest of guest houses but staff are lovely and breakfast is not bad. They even had English breAkfast tea. Internet password changes multiple times during the day so check before you think you device is broken.
If you are into massages ect... There are some lovely clean ones less than 200mts down and between 220 baht for feet or 300 for oil.

Room Tip: I was traveling alone but met ppl quickly. Some female solo travellers might not like walking around...

430 baht for a twin room with air con so extremely cheap. Found new joe's to have a good atmosphere with friendly staff. Rooms of low quality, very basic. Also, I would question the security of doors to the room (very flimsy) so don't leave any valuables in there. The tourist info on site was very helpful and sorted our transport to Phuket the next day. Would say the location is pretty good if you're about partying, just of Khao San Road. If you're not however, don't stay here!
