Liked: I liked that it was actually AWAY from the craziness of Khaosan road, but still close enough to walk there in 10 minutes; the same for the Golden Palace and other important sites. The staff were REALLY nice and helpful, the entire hostel was spotless, beds and lockers are big and new. They have a good lounge area, and I love it when hostels have free soap and shampoo in the (also very clean) showers! It's the little things that count. Good coffee too!

Disliked: Nothing!! I'd definitely stay here again.

Liked: Great cosy feel. Lots of old teak floors and furniture. Excellent DVD collection and a little common room for chilling/chatting/sinking a few Chang. Free netbook to use. Great showers. Comfy bed (as long as you like a firm mattress). Close enough to everything there is to see/do in Bangkok.

Disliked: Nowt.

Liked: Really good hostel, great facilities and very helpful staff. The coffee was fantastic too, nothing better than a good cup as you're waking up!

Disliked: We had a double budget room which was quite small, enough space for a double bed and about a foot between the bed and door. Not really a dislike but probably should of spent extra as other double rooms were much bigger and even had TV's.

Liked: This was a fantastic property. I've stayed a few times in Bangkok now and it was really nice. My partner and I shared a room and it was lovely and came with complimentary breakfast and water. Our friends stayed in the dorms and found them very comfortable and enjoyed that there were not too many people in the rooms. The coffee is great here, and it's got such a nice vibe.

Disliked: The location wasn't perfect, but it wasn't a long walk from anything. I would happily stay here again.

Liked: Sehr gutes Hostel, war hier bereits 2009 und habe mich bewusst wieder für dieses Hostel entschieden. Nettes, sehr hilfsbereites Personal. Freies W-LAN und vom Haus gestellter PC für die, die keinen eigenen dabei haben.

Disliked: Die Klimaanlage war sehr kalt (für erste Nacht ok), später haben wir sie hochgeregelt, in Absprache mit den anderen in unsrem Zimmer.

Liked: Staff are very friendly and helpful. Location is great - near to all the main sites in central Bangkok and easy walking distance to Khao San Road. Chilled out atmosphere in the hostel and easy to meet people. Rooms and bathrooms were clean, nice big locker, free bottle of water every day, bedside lamp, couple of power sockets and a small shelf next to every bed. Free wifi, there is a small laptop to use for free but I found it a big slow, so went to the 24hr internet cafe next door, which is cheap (20B/hr) and has high speed internet. There is a lounge area with sofa, books, dvds to watch. At the front it's like a coffee shop which has the best cappucino I've ever tasted and the thai tea is amazing! Perfect for those wanting to stay away from the Khao San Road party atmosphere, or those who want to go there and then come back to a good quiet nights sleep. The list of positives is endless with this hostel.

Liked: lovely place, a really good place to meet other travellers in the cosy comunal lounge, the rooms were beautiful and clean, it was a 10 minute walk to koh san- so not far,. you still felt in the centre of things, but far enough away that it felt chilled out and quiet. really good!

Liked: The location is excellent. It is a nice walk from some of the main attractions of Bangkok, but it's not in the heart of the backpacker district (a good thing). The beds are comfortable enough and each person is given a large locker. The place is quite clean, and you can get breakfast and some snacks and drinks on site. The use of a netbook is available, but there also is a relatively inexpensive internet cafe next door. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They will gladly help you with directions to any Bangkok destinations. Across the street is a fantastic array of street vendors and small restaurants. It's worth a look.

Disliked: I really have no complaints.
