“Back-packing in THAILAND”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

I would recommend this place to people back-packing around Thailand. I went with a few mates and it was good. The prices are fair and the staff is friendly and helpful. Its not a 5 star hotel or anything but for a back-packer on a budget its great cause you don't spend too much time in your room. You really only leave your bag there, sleep there and wash there and it provides all those things. Its really close to Khoasan road which is great cause Khosan road is where all the fun is. I recommend it theres free wi-fi

Stayed June 2013, traveled with friends

I went to there for 4nights, its been a bad choices. The room looks good, but the toilet always overflow and the fan cannot turning, keep stuck on a side. Okay that's fine, the staff has changed a room for me. After that, a same thing happen in the room and one more thing is the rooftop keep leaking after the rain, too bad. When the night come, there was very noisy. The WIFI u have to go down nearby the counter only can use, their restaurant selling food are extremely overpriced and not really good. this is a place for nightlife to pass out after drinking too much at khaosan road.

My room was plain and simple but very clean and the mattress was excellent!!!
Located just off Koh San Road (good location for backpackers, probably not the best though) but not too noisy, very friendly and helpful staff, good services.
Not the cheapest but still very cheap compared to western prices, but worth it seeing the dumps you can find in Bangkok...

We booked an A/C room for four nights, and ended up leaving after one. The staff was pretty indifferent. The food was extremely overpriced and not very good. We had to kill a cockroach immediately upon entry. The A/C was like a cat sneezing on you. The room was dank and dirty. There was dirt on the bed sheets! It seemed like a room from a horror film based in an abandoned hospital, except that instead of creepy violin music, you heard loud, thudding bass until 4am. This is a place for kids to pass out after drinking too much at Khao San Rd, nothing more. You can get much, much better for cheaper, even if you walk 5 minutes up to Samsen Rd.

This is a good place to stay. We booked a double room with fan and hot water but there was an ac unit in there. So switched that on. Lovely. Free A/C.

But we saw a lot of cock roaches downstairs by the kitchen and my girlfriend saw a rat. Besides that and the building work next door its not too bad.

This is perfect place for the right kind of person going super cheap. For a family, I definitely wouldn't go any cheaper! Next time we stay in Bangkok, I will avoid this tourist trap area like the plague and stay somewhere a little bit nicer. It was recommended to us by someone we should have realized was a little grungier. But what do you want for 400 baht ($12)?

Not clean, dark & dingy, hottest room I've stayed in, the best part about the hotel is the restaurant bar. And it's only good for meeting people, stay somewhere else. Terrible staff, location right off koh San.
