    A Good Hostel.”
    Privacy curtains would be a nice addition and there is not a great deal of space between the dorm beds. It is starting to look a little rough around the edges, so could do with a kick of paint and a full deep clean. All in all a good place. Friendly staff, nice common area and coffee shop. Teasonavly close to train station and IconSiam shopping mall. Would stay here again.

    Worth of money but u might need to walk around 10-15 mins from hua lam phong. We got lost at 1st. And get grab to bring us to this hotel. To find this place, locate 12goasia office. Then from there walk straight (no need to cross yet) until you find school, temple on your left side and keep walking until you see the hotel on the other side of the road. Room just nice but got mine with bit of dusty. Toilet was ok. Overall its good to stay.

    ➕ hostel but it's quite big the common area is big and comfortable staffs are very helpful and friendly (we ran into some electrical malfunction but they gave us compensation for that) 7/11 nearby train station/mrt/skytrain/buses/pier are close small but nice coffee shop in the common area ➖ it's not the quietest place to sleep (near a busy road) but not that loud bathrooms facilities can be improved

    Would I recommend the hostel to a friend. I don't know. The staff was really helpful and nice with advice. Based on the pictures I thought the lobby and rooms would be nicer. The room felt a little damp and you could hear the traffic really well and that is the reason I will not become back. It also lacked some basic amenities like shelfs by the bed to put your stuff on and more than one hook in the shower.

    The hostel is located close to the Hua Lamphong train station (aprox. 15 minutes walk). We were staying in a double room with A/C, which was basic but clean, with a nice, firm mattress. The hostel is nicely decorated, has a nice lobby and there is an option to leave your luggage. The A/C didn't work very well, but it was quiet. The common bathrooms were nicely arranged, with hot showers, however weren't very clean. We spent only one night there, it was a good value for money.

    I mast only recommended that plays is very good location for all visitors of old town and Grand palaces. Enjoy way from hotel by public boat to pier #9 and there have Grand Palace and Wat Po and Wat Arun. Easy way to Golden budha from hotel just hopping to bus number 1 and going Chinatown and Enjoy.

    It is in the heart of Bangkok. You can travel on foot or boat to avoid traffic. It is clean. The room we stayed in is a family room. One of the lockers is broken though. The bidet is not working. Everything else is fine.

    Noisy room and no compensation”
    Asked for a quiet room beforehand. Got a very loud and noisy room. The level of noise was just as much on the room as on the street. No difference. No sleep at all the only night I stayed here. I guess i didn't pay for the night to get some sleep... When confronted with the problem they acknowledged the room is noisy but wouldnt compensate in any way. Basically they gave me a room which they already knew was not fit to stay in the night. Mistake after mistake which makes it even more worse. Sadly and a missed chance.

    We booked for 1 double decker & 1 queen bed room, when i receive the confirmation email its doesnt state that it will be type 1 room or type 2 room, end up i got with 2 double decker room. With no free mineral water, which we could get this with the same price at others hostel. The room door is problem, cant lock properly. The toilet was clean. But the laundry part was messy. The location is so so only.

    The staff are very helpful and friendly. The bathroom can be cleaner but it can be because some people leave their own toiletries there (soap & shampoo). The room is very spacious and the bed, very comfortable. The place is also near places of interest like Chinatown. Going to and from sites are also easy as there is a boat station (Marine Dept.) nearby, which is a great way to go to the old town of Bangkok (Grand Palace, Khao San Road, etc.). The nearest MRT station (Hua Lamphong) is also near and the train station too so I was easily able to go to other areas of Thailand i.e. Ayutthaya . All in all it was a great stay for me there.

    Everything was very nice! The place is worthy the price. The staff was always very helpful. The only minus was the fact that our room was in direction of a very noisy road. But again, you have to see the price first, and after that check your expectations.

    Let’s be clear about what this place is. It’s a hostel. If you are expecting a hotel then keep moving. Simple decor. Shared bathrooms. No elevator. No breakfast. It is in an excellent location. Close to train station. Close to metro. Close to boat taxi to go up and down the river. Clean room. Decent AC. This trip we have stayed there twice and will stay one more time.
