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.

Liked: It felt like walking into a sweet little coffee shop back home. I loved the style of the place; it felt safe and everyone was polite and helpful. The facilities were quite nice, clean and had a good feel. I've read reviews that it was noisy at night but those people have obviously never stayed anywhere close to Khao San Rd before. I had no trouble sleeping at all. It’s not located in the center of the action but it is within walking distance of all kinds of good activities and attractions.

Disliked: Nothing really! It didn't quite have the social scene you might find in larger hostels closer to Khoa San but it's a trade off for the calm and relaxed atmosphere.

Liked: Very clean, friendy helpfull staff. hot showers. free towels.

Disliked: Not really close to anything, always a long walk or taxi. very small common area so if 3 people are watching tv there is no space to sit. you can get a private room for this price somewhere else.


The property's response is

For your case.although we allow guests who checked out spend the whole day in common room.However, it might be not good idea to spend 12 hours in the common room and without going out.If you need privacy and comfort,you may extend the night .
The common room is shared space for every guest to use not for only one person and 10 people can spend time together.
Lastly, we ensure that our price is the standard. As private room with 400 baht ,it's simply with fan not aircon and no hot water.

Liked: Very good hostel for exploring the old town in Bangkok - a bit of a walk to the sights but not a problem. Great coffee served, friendly staff and whole place seems like an oasis away from the busy streets of Bangkok!
