Liked: It is really close to the station to go to Chiang Mai or Ayutthaya. It is also not too far away from the grand palace area.

Disliked: The deluxe doubles were not as pretty as the other rooms...

Liked: The people and the place are excellent.

Disliked: The tour and bus service is very bad. The tour we signed to go on to Floating Market is terrible. The tour guide didn't give any help and lose his patient when we just need some clarification from him. We didn't even know what's happening or where are we heading next. The whole experience is so bad!The bus tour from Bangkok to Krabi is even worst. It was host by a tour company name Songserm (not sure if it's the same tour company to the floating market). The bus was scheduled 7pm but they only arrive at 9pm. Been waiting for 2 hours for the bus. When we got on to the bus, I thought we could just sleep peacefully and reach Krabi as written in schedule, which is 8.30am the next day. The restroom in the bus was broken before we got on to the bus. The toilet couldn't be flush and the smell is terrible. We could even smell it from the upper level of the bus. All of the passengers need to hold down for not using the toilet until most of us couldn't stand it anymore. We asked the bus driver to stop as we really need to go to the toilet. He refused to stop until a Spanish guy shout at him and force him by giving him 10 seconds to stop. The Spanish guy shouted from 10 then 9 to 5 then only the driver say OK and he agreed to stop the bus. Everyone just jump off the bus and go into the bushes.When we arrive at Chumphon, some of the passengers need to get off the bus and hop on to another bus which is heading their direction of destination. Me, my friends and some passengers stay on the bus and we continue our journey to Suratthani.Once we arrive at Suratthani, we found out that our baggage had been lost. According to the crew, it had been dropped off at Chumphon, which is a few hours drive to Suratthani. All our stuffs are in that baggage. The crew there just act like nothing happen and not helpful at all. They just act like it's usual and nothing to do with them and they don't need to help us as like it's not their problem. They just say that the baggage will arrive the next day in the morning at 9am. With all we been through, we have no confident on Songserm company at all. We can't do anything but to wait. We don't even know if the baggage will arrive to us without anything happening to it. The way they act and they bully us as we couldn't speak Thai is so terrible. We waited for the baggage to arrive in the morning at 9am, when 9am hits, the baggage is not here yet. We called and then only they say our baggage couldn't arrive on time until 7pm. What if we need to leave Krabi after 9am? They didn't ask and even didn't want to know how long are we staying there. And now, we didn't even know where's the location of the baggage and whether they found it or not. As the words they said are not trustable at all.We waited for our baggage at 7pm, once 7pm clicks, we called. And they say the baggage is on the way and it needs another 1-2hours to be send to our hostel in Krabi. Again, it arrived late. We only got our baggage at 8.30pm and thanks god, it's the right baggage.

Liked: Extremely convenient location just a few minutes walk from the train station - ideal for the 5.55am train to Cambodia! Very comfy dorm with proper mattresses and air con, ensuite bathroom just shared between the 6 people in the dorm (2 showers and 2 toilets), huge personal lockers with enough space for backpacks and daypacks, and they even provide towel, toiletries and loo paper for each individual in your locker.

Disliked: Staff were very straightforward, and there wasn't a lot of personality or atmosphere to the hostel, it wasn't a massively social place. But for what it is - a decent bed close to the train station - it is excellent.

Liked: Comfort, calm. Very well located: 10 minutes from the Central Railway station and 2 minutes from the MRT station! It is a good value for money particularly as we are in the capital!

Disliked: One person at the reception was not pleasant and helpful.

Liked: Really great location for explore Bangkok and surrounding area. Literally across the road from the Train station, it was perfect for the short trips we planned destinations we could reach by train. Very clean and well kept with a really solid cafe that is open all day long.

Disliked: Be careful what you give in for laundry because I got a couple black pieces of clothing back with bleach stains on them.

Liked: It was nice the staff is friendly and helpful. Its located right next to the MRT.They also had movies you could rate free of charge which I though was awesome. All and all it was a good place to stay and I would recommend it to someone else.

Disliked: There were no elevators! Can you believe that. It was horrible because my room was on the fourth floor. I just thank God that I didn't have that many bages. But that was very annoying.
