The shanti was a great place to stay in Bangkok. I'm not a huge fan of Bangkok, and was happy to get out of there quickly to see the rest of Thailand. But I spent two nights at the shanti before I caught a train south.
This hostel lacks in it's location, but makes up for it with a great atmosphere and vibe. The restaurant and bar is a very welcoming and laid back place to enjoy breakfast or a nightcap. Dom works there at night and is extremely friendly and speaks great English. Great fellow to talk to.
I stayed in cheapest room which had a powerful fan, comfy enough bed and nice bamboo walls. The walls are thin, so if you want to sleep in... This might not be the place for you.
There is not much around the shanti but it's a 50 baht tuk tuk ride from khao San (main backpackers road with bars and shops) or a 60 baht meter taxi to the grand palace (nice wat filled "old city")
If you are just passing thru Bangkok, this is a great place to lay your head
