Liked: Ok...reasons I love Born Free hostel:- It's spotlessly clean, always - The wifi connection is faultless, always-The location is perfect- ten minute walk to th craziness of Khao San but far enough that you can sleep at night!- the beds are comfortable and spacious, the reading light and individual storage bags add a sense of having your own space in a 12 bed dorm- It doesn't feel like a 12 bed dorm.- The communal area is spacious, relaxed and somehow makes it easy to meet people or chill in your own head, at the time time. It's very nicely done.-The owner and his wife are proper nice people, I read this a lot on hostel booking sites and I really can't emphasise enough how much the feeling of homliness is present here. You feel welcomed, included and paid attention to throughout your stay. They work hard making this place what it is and it shows in the travellers home they've created.Right that's the practical stuff. On a personal note, I've been in south east Asia for a year and this hostel is not only the best Ive experienced here but is the best Ive experienced anywhere. I've stayed here three times during that time period and standards have never slipped. It's a wonderful hostel, with a beautiful atmosphere and being here makes my heart feel safe, happy and rested.

Liked: Our stay at Born Free was a wonderful experience. The owner, and his wife who runs the sister hostel, were extremely helpful and friendly to all customers. They encouraged separate groups to meet in a welcoming atmosphere. The room was great and cleaned daily. One of the best I've stayed in.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: A great position in Bangkok for the old part of town. Really close to lots of places to eat. Air Con in the bedroom was excellent. Never had to wait for a bathroom. Really friendly and helpful owner.

Disliked: A little far from a BTS station, but only 60 baht in a taxi to get to one.

The property's response is

Thank you for the feedback. You cant bring your own beers only, everything else is allowed without a limit. The reason for that is we sell our own beer and that at a price similar to 7/11. Thank you for staying with us.

Liked: Great atmosphere & location & friendly staff with good taste in music & coffee :) . You're close enough to Khao San Rd, great food & bars without being in the middle of the chaos. The hostel is within a refurbished Thai house, so the bathrooms are traditionally small & there are only cold showers - so if you prefer a huge bathroom with hot showers over a great social atmosphere stay somewhere else. If you find yourself in Bangkok & want to meet other travellers in a relaxed environment STAY HERE!

Liked: Wonderful Hostel! Great location - very close to Koh San Road but not right in the thick of it. The owner was incredibly helpful and the hostel itself has a great vibe and atmosphere. I would strongly recommend Kevin's cycle tour which is a fantastic opportunity to see the real Bangkok.

Disliked: The "fan" room is pretty warm (but it does also cost less:))
