Liked: The wooden tables and pictures are carved with in lays of thai jungle scenes.

Disliked: Other Travellers staying weren't very forthcoming unless you were staying in the same dorm. I think there were a few long termers which had an effect on it, but that's just my opinion. Don't let it put you off, it was still a pleasant, quiet and clean place that offered a bit of centrally located respite from the craziness outside.

Liked: Free breakfast (toast and cereal), internet was good, location was great (right next to a light rail stop and many food stands at night), laundry available on roof top.

Disliked: They provide comforters (no top sheet) on the beds but don't wash the comforters between uses. If you're cold, you're forced to use the dirty blanket.

Liked: Communal areas are cleaned several times a day. I felt very safe here - the area is good, the street is well lit, and you have a card thing to let you in past reception. There's loads of street food closeby and the BTS within a few minutes walk to great transport links.

Disliked: All communal areas are outside which is not so good if mosquitos like to munch on you!

Liked: I enjoyed the atmosphere and the layout of the dorms. Bathrooms were fantastic, everything was really clean, roof top was gorgeous (if city skylines are your thing). Steps away from fantastic food and sky train.

Disliked: Mattress were hard, but you get used to it.

12 December 2013

Liked: Location was close to the BTS and good street food

Disliked: Not one smile or helpful word upon check in. No information given for services and facilities. No kindness whatsoever. I asked for help lighting the gas stove and she got up from behind the desk (first and only time I saw her move from that spot), walked into the kitchen to get the lighter out of a drawer, lit the stove, through the lighter back in the drawer and left. All without a word or a smile. Anyone who thinks this place is great hasn't been to real hostels. The guests walk around like zombies because the atmosphere is so drab. There are teeny ants everywhere. I saw a ton on the bathroom sink over a period of two days. I finally just squirted some (totally watered down) soap on them to kill the ones that were crawling all over.

Liked: This property has an awesome location. 2 minute walk away from an awesome night food market and the BTS SkyTrain. Very convenient.

Disliked: The room smelled a bit musty and the room was humid--had to crank up the A/C. The bed wasn't too comfortable but the location and low price made up for it.

Liked: The hostel was very secure with guests having swipe cards to enter the building. The room and shared bathrooms were very clean. There were lockers and facilities to do your own laundry. A lot of books to swap. The location of the hostel is great for seeing the sights as it is a 2 minute walk from a sky train station.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: I loved the cozy entrance with stone table and seats. I met my travel companion of Bangkok there, great for socializing. And the terrace on the rooftop was a cherry on the cake, perfect in the evening. And the street food just outside the hostel was perfect!

Disliked: Breakfast was very disappointing. Some fruit could bake everything better!

Liked: It had an interesting decor and nice rooftop. Room was clean, not too squashed for four people and there were plenty of toilets and showering facilities. Plenty of hangars for you to hang your washed clothes and place to dry them too. The place feels very secure since you need a main entrance key and a room key. There was a food street right outside the hostel too.. so lots of yummy food at night. Hostel was at a very convenient location too and it isn't noisy despite the night food street.

Disliked: Lots of mosquitoes especially at the rooftop. Some showers didn't have heaters.
