Liked: I liked our room because it was very clean and had air conditioning.. even though the a/c leaked water on the floor. If you open any windows misquitos get in and your done for cuz theres no screen. The pool was nice too. It was also quiet so we did get a good sleep here.

Disliked: The reception girls were very rude to us when we first arrived and just laughed and talked to eachother in thai. very little explaination of the area and facilities. like pulling teeth. The hostel IS very far away from anything- we knew this when we booked it because we wanted to get a good sleep- but by the end of our time there it was just such a hassle to go anywhere i would have rather stayed closer to the center. Im Sure you can find somewhere better than this place. And I wouldnt stay here again.

Liked: This property has the nicest rooms i saw for 6 months - a pool, room service at reasonable prices, fantastic air con and local restaurants near by.

Disliked: It was way out of the centre of Bangkok so not ideal for sightseeing however it only cost £3 to get here from Mo Chit station and £6 to get to the airport so was a great place to finish my trip to Thailand.

Liked: Staff were amazingly helpful. Very nice and willing to help you more than you expect. Did us many favours to make our trip easier.Rooms were the best I have stayed in in Thailand for the 2 months spent here. For the price unbeatable (cheaper as little further away). And very clean rooms and entire hotel.Pool was very nice on the top floor, very relaxing.Free shuttle per day saved us about 100 baht per day

Disliked: Location (very far from city). About 1 hour out, cost about 100-120 baht to get home. Can save some however using the free shuttle they offer once per day. Despite distance away is good to be out of the city and feel a little more like locals going to markets with heaps less forangs.

Liked: It is very quiet, friendly and great for experiencing Bangkok without the 'tourist sell you everything' feel. Great location for being immersed in Thai everyday life.

Disliked: It was a very long way from the centre of Bangkok so therefore expensive and difficult to get back to from a day out.

07 February 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Big bonus is the beautiful infinity pool on the roof. Really good kitchen with washing machines and tumble dryers. Cheap as chips. Really clean rooms, more like a hotel than a hostel really. Don't come here if you're looking to party on Kao San Road but you can get a free shuttle every day to the major tourist spots. TVs in rooms, and a fridge. Can't get better for £7!! Taxis are seriously cheap too, so you can get everywhere really easily.

11 December 2009 Victoria would recommend this property

Liked: the pool on the roof was amazing!!! I also noticed that this hostel would be great for a wheelchair user.....with the ongoing spiral ramp all the way from the 1st floor to the 5th floor. However i would like to know about facilitis in the other rooms.ie, the bathroom, if it is possible to fit a wheelchair inside as the bathroom in our room....i would barely walk in as the door opened onto the toilet.But the hostel was great, a little far out from town but that is what we wanted...until we got there lol Over all, fantastic place!

Liked: This is a brillant place to stay as long as you don't mind being off the beaten track and willing to use buses or taxis. The rooms were well appointed, clean, and roomy with nice outlooks and the pool on the roof on the Number 2 building was brilliant.

25 July 2009

Liked: Comfortable hotel at good price - but when you add the cost of travel and time to get to Bangkok these positives are cancelled out. A long way to get lost and confused in a taxi or changing buses. The hotel itself is fine, if you have business in the area would be fine. The roof top view and pool are very nice, being such a long way from the city you get a great view.Staff at this hotel friendly and willing to help.The safe deposit system at this hotel requires review - placing items in a sealed envelope and giving customers a reciept before placing in the hotel safe is not that hard a process to develop.

Liked: Stunning garden at breakfast area. Rooftop pool was small but peaceful and idyllic with the plants and flowers surrounding it. Excellent value for mony. Only negative thing was that we booked a trip to floating markets and other which wasnt as advertised. Instead of bringing us to beautiful orchid and butterfly farm they brought us to dirty smelly cruel snake show. Tour guide had exceptionally poor english and was rude and unhelpful
