Liked: Staff are really friendly and helpful.

Disliked: The room was tiny and the bed was rock solid! But suppose you get what you pay for. If you're wanting somewhere just to sleep and leave your stuff and go out all day this is the place. Restaurant attached is nice too, and equally cheap.

Liked: Great location, just next to Khao San Rd (its even better that its not at KSR cause its more quiet), 10-15 minute walk to Grand Palace. I stayed in a single room with fan and bathroom for 5 euro/night and it was definitely worth the money. The room gets quite warm but if you're not planning to spend the day there, its fine, in the evening or at night its quite okay, tho i still think its worth paying 2.5EUR extra for AC room. Inquire about the room with window, will certainly improve your experience. Reception is also a bar where they serve decent breakfasts, if you're in a hurry in the morning it's worth stopping there.

Disliked: I wanted to upgrade to AC room so I emailed them about it 2 days before the check-in but they never responded and when I arrived it was no longer available. Also when I inquired about the transfer to DMK airport recepionist claimed there's no other way except taxis and the minivan they incidentally sell tickets for (and obviously get the provision for too). From this kind of place for budget travellers I'd expect more honest information, using public transportation to get to DMK might not be easy but it can surely save up money and it took me 5 minutes to google it (should be even faster if you speak Thai). Wi-fi was quite weak, disconnecting on multiple occassions. Staff speaks quite average English but at least they're smiling all the time (like all the Thai ppl apparently) :) I eventually booked the transfer with them cause I was short on time and they said the bus would stop in front of the hostel, eventually I had to walk down the street and ask ppl if this is the bus I was booked for. Despite of all of those - for this kind of money I'd probably stay there again.
