01 March 2012 Breanna would recommend this property

Liked: It was as close as you could get to the main train station for Bangkok. It would be perfect as a stop over location but i couldn't imagine basing my time in Bangkok from here. It had aircon which was nice and a clean bed.

Disliked: Its central which is good but there isn't much to do around this location itself. i booked a private room which was okay. Having a TV wasn't very relevant as it was all in another language.

Liked: Friendly and helpful staff, clean air-conditioned rooms and decent facilities, free wifi, AMAZING location if you want to have good transport links. The hostel is literally right next to the MRT station and about 2 mins walk from the main Bangkok railway station (you can see it from the front door). Even when we had checked out, the staff let us use their shower for free a week later when we were on our way back to the airport. Highly recommended and an absolute bargain.

Disliked: Nothing really.

Liked: friendly staff definitely made my stay much more enjoyable. close to hua lamphong train station, major sights such as royal palace and temple of emerald buddha (buses 53 and 25 depart from wat traimit; free to ride)

Disliked: there was a misunderstanding which made my final night there very unhappy, but i wouldn't say it's their fault (it was really a misunderstanding). the staff member at the front desk did help me resolve the issue.

Liked: Ample toilets and showers,good food on site,convenient transport next to the property.

Disliked: I came from kuala lumpur on the train and expected to arrived 12hours earlier.as is the case throughout southeast Asia,my time was wasted.in this case I also had to pay for a nights sleep when I had no way of contacting the staff.i felt they were very unsympathetic.they tout themselves as being by the train station,but don't seem to understand the usual delays involved.

Liked: Modern rooms complete with Air Con, Refrigerator, LCD TV and daily room service. Bottled water and fresh towels are provided daily and all of this is included within the cost as seen on Hostelbookers website. Cafe and Breakout zone provided excellent amenities.

Disliked: No dislikes or negatives about room or services within property however only advice to future guests would be to avoid Tuk Tuk drivers (non-associated with @Hua Lamphong) sitting on road outside hostel as they will tout their offer of taxi service for ridiculous cost compared to regulated metered taxi service you could wave down on the street.

Liked: It was very clean, helpful staff, comfortable beds. It is right across a square from the railroad station which makes getting on the train to Chiang Mai easy. A short subway from the shopping centers, a little further to the rest of the sites. All in all it was a good stay.

Disliked: The neighborhood was not scenic but the hostel was quiet.

Liked: likes: - location by metro and train station - amazingly friendly staff at front desk and in-house cafe - clean!

Disliked: dislike: - for the dorm room they issue you a key card that doubles up as the power card for electricity in the room with your locker key attached. if it's blazing hot in the room and you need the air con on for the night (which it was while we were there), you'll have to leave your key card in the electric holder with your locker key out for the open. not sure if you can take the key off but it was troublesome at times.

Liked: I only stayed for a night, and needed a good bed, a fresh towel and a good shower. I got what I needed!

Disliked: Nothing specific. Everything was ok, but if you're a backpacker, it's not a place to go to party. It's only a place to stay if you intend to sleep, but not meet people.

29 December 2011 Samantha would recommend this property

Liked: great location, right opposite hua lamphong rail station and 30 seconds from the metro. tuk tuks outisde the station to get you into busier parts of town. nice clean room. complimentary water and crisps! fridge in the room. nice hot shower. we stayed here for 2 nights first before moving to khoa san road area. (bus 53 bus stop is to the right of the hostel) where there is much more going on.

Disliked: nothing wrong with the property, although quite quiet and not massively social so might not be great to stay here by yourself..although i think there are dorms. not a huge amount going on right outside the hostel compared to more touristy areas.
