Liked: Great place with very friendly and helpful staff. My stay hear was very comfortable and enjoyable. I felt safe and secure here, and met many friendly and interesting people. Great location, very central near chinatown and the train station but on a quite street near the river, so perfect balance. My time in Bangkok would not have been the same if I did not stay at the shadow inn. I hope to come back next time I am in Bangkok and woukd recommend this place to anybody.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: The worst hotel where you can stay. They should call it DIRTY INN. Rooms are worst than in jail. Good luck if you manage to sleep on their hard bed made from hard plastic. One towel for two. I even don't want to speak about shower and toilets you will be scared.... Their advertising is totaly false... run away, well don't waste money coming here !

Liked: It was close to the train station

Disliked: But it was really dirty. When i arrived the room was not prepared , there were alcohol bottles in the room. Then the worker took them out saying a lot of sorry. Their is nothing in the room except the bed. No window!!! The worst thing happend when one of the workers invited me to have sex with him. It was mist disgusting hostel in my life, i planned to stay two nights, but could stay only one. Do not recommend to anyone.

Liked: The price is definitely a very good value. The dorm is quite good with light and there is a lot of space. I stayed one more night there just to rest because it is in a very quiet area. Not far from the train station - about 20 min with a big backpack

Disliked: The location of the hostel is just impossible to find by yourself, even with the adress, if you don t ask at least 30 locals around the area. Maybe you can find it with a map app on a smart phone, but I don t have any phone.

Liked: Shadow Inn has a good location in old town; there is a convenience store nearby, Chinese and Japanese restaurants, street food vendors, and it is a quick walk from the railway station and metro line. It is near the west bank (floating market), Khao San road backpacker district, Chinatown and Little India, and just a few kilometers from the center. All rooms here are good value for money and the 24-hr fast Wifi is a big plus. Dorm beds go fast so book ahead. Staff is English-speaking and service-oriented. Please check the confirmation email for instructions and map, and consider calling them when you are nearby.

Disliked: I disliked having to leave my room to go to the bathroom.

Liked: --> There is a "hidden" roof top with a nice view over Bangkok. All in all, very cheap hostel near to Chinatown and the central railway. Friendly staff and a lot of space in the dorm room for your backpack/luggage. And you get a towel.

Disliked: Bathroom is a filthy and a sink is missing. Can be hot inside. Tip: Room will cools down when leaving the door to the rooftop open at night.
