“Cockroaches, better value for money elsewhere.”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We stayed 1 night in room G4. Reception staff were ok. Room smelt like cigarettes and must. Found 6+ cockroaches within 2minutes. Dirty sheets/bedding. Toilet had definitely not been cleaned before our arrival! Had read reviews that there were bed bugs, didn't see any, however we slept on top of bedding and sprayed ourselves with deet just in case. Bathroom was very small and had to stand in the shower to shut the door, shower curtain very mouldy. Free breakfast buffet was ok. Did try and charge us for taking toothpaste & map that we did not even see, but still gave 500baht deposit back. We have moved to New Siam guest house for same price and it is much much better.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere!

As our first stop on our trip round Thailand we didn't need much. This hotel has a great location, just off the buzz of Khaosan Road. The rooms are just about clean enough, shower didn't work hot for us, but all the basics are there. Ideal if you're just passing through, not for a luxury Bangkok holiday!

I can't understand how this place has received any positive reviews! Our room was crawling with bedbugs and cockroaches and had blood and all sorts smeared on the walls. We have stayed in some very basic hostels in Asia but this was just disgusting. The bathroom was so small the door could only open half way and it absolutely stunk. Breakfast was OK. The location is great for Khao San Road but we visited a friend in another hotel 5 doors down who paid less than us for a far nicer room.

The hotel has good AC in a place that you need it! Simple & inexpensive hotel. The place is basically clean, compact and pretty secure. It is located in the heart of backpackers life, KhoaSan Road. It can get noisy from the street fare, but not the hotels fault.

Basic but central hotel. The "early bird" deal worked out at a very reasonable price. Rooms small but clean and comfortable beds. Staff friendly and helpful and breakfast very good in pleasant area. Ideal location for busy Kao San Road area but quiet as just off the main road. Easy access to the river and main sights.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms were quiet.

Very basic very small (almost not enough space to put the backpacks on the floor and we had the 'big room') and the 'breakfast' is just jam and toast. It's ok for the first two nights in Bangkok. Staff is neither nice nor not nice, they just do their job. If you want to stay some more days in Bangkok better look for something else.
