Liked: I really my stay here. The staff are friendly and has a nice atmosphere. The beds are comfortable and there is a big storage locker for your bag. Two common rooms to chill out and excellent noodles across the road. It is a small walk to the main backpacker area but is close to tourist attractions. I would stay here again.

Liked: The location is great; close to a lot of Temples and the "old" part of Bangkok. The facilities are great and very clean. It's hard to believe the building is over a hundred years old; the traditional "Thai" feel makes it very welcoming. Huge lockers available and luggage can be stored in the common room. Food & drinks at the café downstairs are great & the staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Taxi drivers don't always seem to know/understand where it is but the hostel provides instructions in Thai (and a phone number for drivers to call if they can't find the place)

Liked: It is quaint and pleasant. The staff is really friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The property is really nice (I think it's actually an old house). The coffee/desserts are good. They let you use the showers (after check-out) if you have a late flight.

Disliked: There was only one laptop for internet access, which one guest used the entire time, so they could use more computers/internet access on site. The hallway that is not air conditioned smelled a bit, but the rooms and common areas are nicely air conditioned.

Thank you for your comments and review. Regarding internet access,we provide free-wifi for guests and free laptop, however, as it's shared facility, sometimes guests might wait a bit for others.
However,the other option,some guests also enjoy internet cafe with full service next door with ultra hi-speed at the lowest price only 15 baht per hour.Furthermore, as the structure of the preserved structure of building, there's no air conditioned in the hallways.Thank you for your understanding.
