Liked: Very large hostel located in Silom (just over the road from the Hangover hotel) and conveniently placed for public transport. Really easy to use the river boats from here as well. Staff are really friendly and helpful. The hostel itself is VERY clean and has amazing bathrooms. The beds are the most comfortable I've stayed in outside of a 5* hotel in dubai! Great value for money especially if you want to go to the general haunts (Khao San Road etc.) but also be able to leave them! 7/11 is two minutes walk as well.

Disliked: Breakfast was plentiful, but not great...but then no 'western style' breakfast is in Thailand so you can hardly fault them for that. Wander outside and grab some food from the small street vendors!

Liked: Probably one of the top 5, if not 3, hostels in Bangkok. It's right next to the Skytrain and a sweet food center right next two the river. You can get a huge meal for like 40 or 50 BHT. The staff is really cool and will help you with anything you need. Very good people and an outstanding place to stay. I know you might think the price may be a bit high, but it's fully worth it. Plus you get a free breakfast buffet in the morning too. And that in itself is about $3. So if you technically think about it, this place is about $9 a night.

Disliked: The atmosphere is so-so. Many people are doing their own thing, but don't let that discourage you. Just strike up a conversation.

Liked: Saphaipae is more like a hotel to me than a hostel. Staff is really friendly, clean bathroom, comfortable bed and free breakfast during my stay (it was a new year promotion). I met a lot of fun people and celebrated my new year eve with them!

Disliked: It is a bit isolated and away from most touristy spots. Not much happenings at night at the surrounding and I can't really find any thai snack for supper but there is a 7-11 across the corner of the street. But hey away from all the hectic spots also means a sound sleep at night!

Liked: I liked how organized check-in/out seemed to be. I liked how secure each floor was, making me feel like me and my belongings were safe. Breakfast every morning was great! The restaurant in the building had a good menu. Ate there often. I enjoyed the fact that it was out of downtown and the other really touristy places. Kept the area quiet and safe. The best part was that it was next to the sky train line, making it easy to get around the city.

Disliked: NA

Liked: had a private double room with ensuite, very clean, very lovely, sheets were soft and bed was comfy! staff very helpful.. loved the room and hostel

Disliked: is a 10 min walk to the river and a 30 min boat ride up to khao san rd if that's where you want to be in the evening, means you have to get a tuk tuk back but it's not so bad

Liked: I liked everything! Everyone that arrvives immediately says what a great hostel it is! Literally the only things I disliked was that there isn't a bin in the room (on the landing instead) and that my room was quite dark, as lights are put by each bed which is actually very thoughtful and one low watt one in the middle. Apart from that - spotlessly clean, new, free internet, free breakfast, great for Silom Road and the BTS. Will be staying again before my home flight definitely!

07 January 2014 Kirsta would recommend this property

Liked: Helpful, knowledgeable staff. Fantastic, clean, updated room. I stayed in a private room on the 8th floor and it felt BETTER (bigger, cleaner, more modern) than any hotel I've yet to stay at in Bangkok. The location was within walking distance of Surasak Station. The lunch/dinner food at the resto is delicious. Yes the breakfast is very simple, but that's what a "continental breakfast" is.

Disliked: I can only speak for the private room, but the A/C unit and fridge were rather large, and therefore noisy at night. But that was just 1 small thing in an otherwise perfect stay. The A/C was quite welcome after a long day walking around town.
