      filthy hotel, mean staff ”

      location

      The late evening reception lady was horrible. She accused me of not paying for two people when I booked on line and I didn't see an option. she said she was going to call the police, later when I payed her an extra two hundred baht she threw the change at me and yelled at me. Person the next day said not to worry about her because nobody likes her. Unbelievable to treat customers that way.

      location is great, and very cheap
      shared bathrooms

      the hotel is just right near the Khaosan Road, which is the center of action, many hotels, restaurants and bazaars there, and many foreigners around. Hotel is more of like a hostel, but staff is warm, helpful, rooms are small, many rooms has shared bathrooms, but if you are just looking for a bed with a cheap value this is the right place.

      You will regret!”

      I regret why I chose this place. Seriously! When I arrived the fat gay staff was totally rude. He never smiled nor even assist me to the room. When I came to the room, it was totally small and smelly. The toilet can’t even fit 1 person. The bed is made out of spring that it is really to sleep on. It was not comfortable at all! Also in the blanket, it was think and furry, I saw some strands of hair!(It’s not mine because my hair is gold, It was black). Cab webs are on the ceiling and and the floor is also dusty. My boyfriend came the next day, and same scenario, he was not assisted nor even asked where is he going knowing I didn’t inform them that my boyfriend will also arrive so generally, this is not safe because strangers or unknown people can just go inside. There were also rats running in the ceiling. It was totally disgusting. That afternoon, we went for lunch but we forgot the key. When we came back I asked the reception for help! Guest what? She gave me all the duplicates of all the rooms without assisting us going to our room. What if we opened other rooms? And no one is there and we took all their belongings? Tsk! I told ya’ll it’s not really safe! So don’t you dare to book in this hostel. You will really regret! Yeah, it’s cheap but it’s not worth a single cent! Nothing good!

      Worsest hotel I've ever been/Dirtiest”

      Dirtiest place I've ever been. It took me to inspect 3 rooms before I've chosen best:still dirty, with bugs, ants but at least without big dark and yellor stains on bed sheets. Looks like rooms are never cleaned, or almost not. Conditioner worked bad so it was also hard to breathe during the night. It's definitely a 0-star but not 2-star hotel. Very dissappointed. Location is good though.

      Not best place, but maybe best for the price”

      For the price you get a pretty good deal. Single room with bathroom. The bed is more comfortable than some places. Other rooms I stayed in for the same price had just a tiny room or hard bed. The owners and staff are nice other than one male/female staff wasn't very nice to me. Stayed in different rooms. One had a bathroom that was too small and the floor of the room was a little dirty. Another room had a sagging but pretty comfy bed. Was good having a basic breakfast included. The restaurant on the first floor is pretty good. Near shortcut to Kao San which is a plus.

      - Bedding sheets and pillow cases were dirty and stained - I asked for a clean sheet and pillow cases, and only received a sheet with a sigh. They didn't have clean pillow cases. - I had to change the bedding sheets myself. - Bed was horrible- could feel wiring while laying on it. - Walls were dirty Just plain run down.

      Extremely uncomfortable beds”

      uncomplicated check-in, close to khao san, quiet

      got this place for one night for the sole purpose of not having to take a taxi after a long night of drinking. Staff is somewhat unfriendly, as almost everywhere in the vicinity of Khao San Road. The beds looked more comfortably than those of other establishments in the same price range, but that was a grave misconception on our part. The beds are just terrible for sleeping and even worse for having sexy times with the girlfriend.

      Poorer room this time”

      Location, price, street food around.

      I've stayed here a few times, but this time I got a rather poor room. The bed was hopelessly out of shape - it had a hump on one side and a depression on the other. Room & bathroom windows had no curtains; although they were not in any direct line of sight of any prying eyes (facing a back alley on the first floor), it was disconcerting nonetheless. For some reason the bathroom drainage outlet had mothballs (!) on it, but that didn't bother me too much. Other than that, things were at its usual standard - TV, aircon & hot water were functional. I'll treat getting this room as luck-of-the-draw and would probably stay here again.

      Budget price, location, nearby food stalls.

      I've stayed here a few times now and as usual it served my purpose. Nice firm bed, although starting to get lumpy in parts. Love the firm pillows, none of those too-soft types many hotels use. Aircon, hot shower and tv worked fine. For its price I consider it good value and would stay here again.

      Good value for short stay.”

      Low price, near Khaosan, near riverboat pier.

      OK value considering it's low price. Some noise from nearby pubs, but bearable. Bed is firm (which I like), lots of eating options in the surrounding sois, and riverboat pier nearby provides a great alternative public transport option. I've stayed in several budget places around Khaosan and this place for me is good value.
