    Location is good. Beside Robinson Mall and near to Saphan Taksim station. My issue here is cleanliness. They are changing or cleaning your bed if you are going to stay 3 nights. Also the aircon will start to open at 7pm. I hope they put this rule in their site here at agoda so people know about it. So when we are going back to our room (after we tour around outside)its very hot. They just have one fan which is not moving to accommodate 8 beds inside.

    Rats in the hotel”

    Very comfortable and clean beds, overall good facilities. We had a really nice stay overall BUT a rat ripped through one of our backpacks and ate up all our food. When we asked the staff for a little money to buy a new backpack, no help at all was offered. Depending on the member of staff some were very helpful and nice, others totally incorporative. A shame because everything else was perfect.

    My first stay & will be the last time aswell! Do not trust in the picture on their commercial, big disappointed! Super narrow space, can't even open the smallest size luggage there's a locker but have to bring ur own lock. The capsule room floor is full of hairs, disgusting! Only 1 stinky toilet, 1 narrow shower room, 1 wash bowl on every floor The best thing of this hostel is located close to the BTS & the free shuttle boat to Iconsiam. That's all!

    Location is good; cleanliness can be improved”

    The location is good. It’s close to the pier and train station, so traveling is easy. The staff are also very nice and accommodating. I just didn’t like how they didn’t change the sheets and comforter for five days of our stay there. The air-conditioner is also turned off during the day so it’s not nice to stay there to rest before 7 PM. Also, some rooms can be too high so it’s not very convenient for those especially staying at the 6th floor.

    Best Location”

    This is my second time staying at Glur Bangkok Hostel. I chose this hostel because of its location close to Saphan Taksin BTS and Sathorn Pier. So, we can save more time. In front of the hostel, you can find Bang Rak Market, Robinson, McDonald's, KFC, many food stalls and also some pharmacies. So you will not starve. The room I stayed in was quite clean and complete with a hair dryer and electric kettle. FYI, there is no door for the bathroom and it is only covered with curtains. This hostel is also prepared breakfast for guest with a simple Thai food, and I like it, tasty. Their staff is very friendly and helpful. If you are Indonesian, don't worry, because one of their staff is from Indonesia, Firman, he will help you. By the way, we met a woman on our last day. She help us brought our luggages to car. She said she is owner Queen's Curry, restaurant closed to Glur Bangkok Hostel. Please say hi to her from us and we will try her restaurant for next trip.

    Worst ever in during my stay in Bkk”

    Good location, foods everywhere, train station, boat pier. But.. The dormitory hostel was so smelly and look like a warehouse, and the room was dirty. No aircond at 12-8pm I guess? They put me on the highest level room, no elevator, it wasn't a good choice if you come with family or elder people. Look totally different from the pics.

    Needs Improvement”

    We stayed here 3 years ago but Glur Bangkok Hostel changed a lot and not for the better. I dont know what happened. Maybe a change in ownership. Check-in time was 2pm but we entered the room at 2:20pm. Breakfast starts at a late 8:30AM as advised but food was actually served at 8:50AM. We lacked one towel and the reason was all were used at that time and it is so sad that I have to share the towel with my sister. I noticed they lacked staff during our stay. This may have caused all the mess we encountered. We will never stay here again.

    THE HOSTEL DOESNT LOOK ANYTHING LIKE THE PHOTOS!!!! beware it looks like 10 years have passed and many many guests have stayed here without proper maintenance. Im sure (maybe) that the hostel looked like the photos once upon a time, but not in 2019!! The staff is really nice though! They helped me when i complained about few things! Also major thing, THERE IS NO ELEVATOR!!! so if youre put into the 7th or 8th floor rooms.. you’ll be getting major cardio in every day!! Overall it was actually a nice stay! Great location and really nice people that work there , but it would be helpful if they update the website because they’re basically lying to their guests!

    GUHHHREAT location”

    One thing - I love this mainly because of its location!!! It's right beside Saphan Taksin train station!! It has a night market beside it and a whole Robinsons mall just a few meters away! Second... I love how spacious and beautifully designed the room was. It's so instagrammable! Not to mention how clean it is. The only downfall for me who brought a super large luggage is that it doesn't have an elevator so it was major effort to bring my luggage up and down the staircase (we're at 3rd floor btw). The staircase was also a bit narrow so yeah, made it harder. Also, don't expect so much in their breakfast - it's a small, we even thought it was only the appetizer. Aside from these, everything was already perfect! P.S. To Filipino travelers out there, they have friendly Filipino staff here! The Thai staff (I'm assuming they're Thai) were also very helpful and nice!

    Affordable stay at a nice location ”

    Stay here for a week and will come back again. The double bed in the Dormitory is sturdy and spacious enough for 2. They provide clean bed and towel. Their common areas are clean as well but sometimes have mosquitoes. The hair dryer is as advertise.. is really powerful.. (^o^) .. As long as you have no problem carry your own luggage up to 5th or 6th floor and sharing minimum walkway in the room then this Hostel is fine. The day shift staff is energetic and very helpful. The Hostel is using Type A, B & C power plug. Shopping, Eateries, Street Food, Massage, Seven-Eleven, Bus, Train, Boat rides are all within short walking distance. 1)Take A1 bust to Chatuchak (30THB) from Don Mueang Airport 2)take BTS Skytrain from Mo Chit station to Saphan Taksin (44THB) interchange at Siam station. 3) Exit 1 from Mo Chit Station, right turn at the exit then first left junction (temple at the junction) then first right junction and Glur Hostel is just a few shops away on the right

    I booked the deluxe which has a soft,full or queen size mattress and its has a privacy curtains, mirror, outlet charger, lights inside so you can sleep naked if youd like in the all female floor and do your makeup/hair in your bed area. Some people even share the bed because its enough space for two, while only paying the price of one. Then when you wake up in the morning and get free breakfast at the nextdoor restaurant, its awesome and the staff are very accommodating, if you want more breakfast they serve you another plate, and its about a 2 minute walk to saphin taksin bts train station with authentic thai street food lined up on the way. Like 0.31 US cents for a pork screwdriver and $1.09 for a bowl of thai noodle soup or a boba milkshake. They use the fan in some hours of the day instead of the a/c though Free wifi good speed. Hot shower water! This is a hidden gem and you will feel a little spoiled coming from the U.S.

    Yes, the lobby is very pretty, but that’s pretty much where it ends. The dorms themselves are upstairs from a massage parlor and don’t seem to be in very good condition. The 2pm check in time is non negotiable, apparently. You can tell because there were so many exhausted travelers sleeping in the lobby waiting for the check in time. No towels were provided the first two nights because they said it wasnt available. The AC in the dorms are turned off during the day and it makes it hard to sleep in or take a mid afternoon nap due to the heat. There is one shower room and one toilet on each level. There is no place to get dressed after showering, nor is there a place to put your towel while you’re showering to keep it dry. Breakfast was included but definitely NOT filling. You still need to go eat something else afterwards.

    It's my 2nd time staying in this hostel, so many things changed from 2017 like no more public space & mostly the bunk bedroom changed to private room but it's ok for us since the location is the reason why we stay at this hostel. we book private bedroom for us & we satisfied with the bed. just hope they still put a stock for milk & cereal or maybe start the breakfast earlier (7 AM maybe) for someone who always explore bangkok early in the morning like us.
