Liked: it has an awesome location right across the entrance to khaosan road and the number 13 pier on which you can take the boat down the river to bangkok's various sights food is very, very good they offer a variety of indian food and western food as well as thai food for reasonable prices (betwenn 80-120 baht if you don't take the most fancy one)

Disliked: rooms don't get cold, but there are fens which offer some relief, nonetheless i think that you can manage to survive during nights, beds are hard (i don't have a problem witth that but some of the other guests did, that's why i mention it) third floor doesn't have toilet paper, so be prepared :))

Liked: Great location, good indian food and cheap.

Disliked: Dirty, no blanket in the room and the matress of the bed was made from a material similar to concrete. We had the "luxury" private double room and there was a sealing panel missing in the toilet. One day a cat looked down on us while we were brushing our teeth. And no hot water.
