Liked: Absolutely lovely and helpful staff. Very clean, quiet and nice place to stay. Markets, 7-11 and other shops all very close. Excellent security with lockers easily available.

Disliked: Not near the main attractions (temples, grand palace, khaosan road, etc) at all. Also rather pricey for Bangkok hostels, but worth it if you want clean and quiet.

Allison Tillett

09 March 2010 Allison would recommend this property

Liked: I've stayed here 3 times and am going on my 4th time tonight with some friends. I continue to go back mostly because of the location. It's less than 5 minutes walk to Chong Nonsi BTS station. If you are planning on spending a lot of your time at Kao San then this place is a bit out of the way (still only a 140 baht cab ride). Otherwise, it's really convenient! The beds are comfortable, the showers and toilet are very clean, there is both hot and cool water, and it's quite sunny! I find it rather private and quiet. It's not the type of hostel where people are hanging around in a living room watching movies and sharing travel stories, but it is efficient, convenient and cozy. They provide linens but do not provide a towel, you can buy one for 150 baht. Also, you can book transportation to hot spots and the staff are really helpful and speak english. I especially appreciate the 24 hour check in service-this is one of the other top reasons I like to stay here!

21 February 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Because I had a late flight, I arrived past 1 am in the morning. I loved how efficient the self-check-in process was. It was a very average hostel, with tiny rooms, but the place felt very secure from the outside (cameras, locked entrances) and had friendly staff.

Liked: Guess this guesthouse got a bit of bedbugs problem. It is pretty noisy as the BTS station is just opp the guesthouse. So if you want a quiet place, avoid this place. But if you want a cheap and convenient location, this is the place. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Liked: I had BEDBUGS in my room!! The next morning I told the staff about them and they put me into another room but they have the bedbugs everywhere. I spoke with other people and they had them too, togehter with cocroachs... Awful. If you don't want to discover new bites every morning after you wake up, don't go there.
