I have stayed in New Siam I numerous times and can say with great conviction that it is by far and away the best budget option in Khao San.
I have stayed in the fan room which is as cheap as you will find for a room that's liveable in at around 350THB in the peak season. It is basic with a very comfortable and sizeable king size bed, good storeage area and a ceiling fan. It can get hot in here and the shared bathrooms can be hit and miss due to the sheer volume of guests and the unpredictability this can cause. Generally the bathrooms are clean but you have to bring your own toilet paper... Nonetheless, you're unlikely to find anywhere else at this price in Bangkok that is anywhere near this kind of luxury.
Now I always stay in the air con with bathroom option, however. This is a steal at 620THB in the peak season and currently 540THB (it will go down further as the rainy season continues). This is by far and away the best value for money you'll find in Bangkok. An extremely comfortable bed, good storage space, a sofa and stool with desk, effective air con and a very clean bathroom with hot water. The rooms are not the kind of luxury you'd find at the Hilton, but for this price in Bangkok it's shockingly excellent.
Highly recommended - there is a real charm to the aircon rooms. Give it a try!
