The Urban Age Hostel
Ranked #843 of 1,303 Specialty Lodging in Bangkok
Reviewed September 24, 2006

I was very disappointed in this place after reading the positive reviews. It is sort of clean, not filthy not spotless. No bugs or anything, just old and falling apart. Beds are like particle board--VERY HARD!!!! Not like firm, like actually HARD. Terrible for solo travelers--no social atmosphere whatsoever. I have been travelling for almost a year and have seen both ends of the spectrum. This is somewhere on the lower end. Also, no elevator--if you get stuck on the 6th floor, it can be frustrating. The girls at the desk during the day are VERY helpful but the girl at night only speaks Thai, so it is impossible to get info on getting from point A to point B, any recommendations, transportation help for the next day, etc. I know I am in her country, but it is hard at hostels when they can't help the tourists. I don't mean to be disrespectful by any means. The location is convenient for the sky train, but if I stayed again in Bangkok I would pick another part of town. Not much to see around here and you have to take taxis at night--no public transportation options.

Room Tip: Лестницы узкие и крутые. Так что с тяжелой сумкой лучше выбирать этаж пониже.
