Liked: The location was not too bad. Nice street with all the shops and close to the airtrain. But thats the only positve..

Disliked: Shit rooms, really small, bathroom was disgusting, staff was not really friendly and really bad english. The 'commonroom' is 2meters by 3 meters so there's nobody chilling out there, so not really a change to meet people.

Liked: The location is at downtown Bangkok, near the heart of night life PatPong, easy to reach with the train from the airport and by bus to the other tourist location

Disliked: At my floor, plumbing leaking at the wash basin and toilet. Floor covering at the "lobby" is bad. Its seems that this hostel must get a renovation.... maybe your auditor must visit your promoted hostel(s) twice a year.

Liked: Nice and clean, good transportation possibilities with a BTS station next to it. The guy at the reception is really helpful. WiFi has a perfect signal everywhere. Quiet athmosphere.

Disliked: Not much of common areas, so not a place to meet people. But it's Bangkok so you won't hang out in your hostel anyway.

Liked: We received a friendly welcome from the guy on the front desk upon arrival, who also gave us good advice to help us with our onward travel from Bangkok. The room was an ok size (fine for a hostel) and lockers were available for valuables.

Disliked: The toilet and shower were perhaps a bit unclean but usually available..

Liked: only location

Disliked: walls thin, if someone is talking in the next room, heard as if in my room. Toilets and showers are not closed. There is only one shower. Air conditioner is running right over the bed, turn it is impossible to sleep cold and the wind blows from the top. The price for such conditions are greatly exaggerated. The worst hostel for the entire journey.

Liked: The good about this place was the location which is by the skytrain station and Silom area. The Wifi was good and the lady at the front desk always had a big smile on her face.

Disliked: It wasn't very clean feeling. We had to kill a cockroach that was trying to take over the room and bathroom. It is loud at night so bring earplugs. I didn't like it but didn;t really hate it as some other guest who left after one night.

Liked: The staff was very helpful and nice, and the location is superb (close to the skytrain and in the heart of the Silom area). Our room was big enough, very clean, and the air con was brand new and thus super quiet and efficient.

Disliked: We stayed on the 4th floor, so dragging our suitcases up the narrow staircase was a bit hard. We had two (non-see-through) windows in our room that went into the hallway where the lights were on 24/7 (and we didn't find the switch) and so it never got dark in our room.

Liked: staff were lovely and very helpful in providing directions or travel tips. 2 kinds of secure lockers were also available for use. location was not bad, with a train station within a couple minutes walking distance, and several convenience stores and market stalls nearby.

Disliked: bathroom could definitely do with a clean - toilet leaked and the shower drain was clogged. was also a bit grossed out by cockroaches at night.

Liked: The staff is very helpful and friendly. The facilities are clean and pretty well maintained, and the WiFi is fast and dependable. The location is the best thing about this hostel - quiet with a lot of amenities nearby, and close to the Skytrain. This is a great place if you're wanting to relax.

Disliked: The Skytrain was right next to the hostel, so it was a little noisy at times, though in the rooms it wasn't too bad.
