    I enjoyed my stay here. The beds have curtains but the aircon is switched off from 11am-5pm so it can be hot if you need to sleep there during the day. Breakfast was good and WiFi was strong and the common area is nice to sit in and work on your laptop. Very sweet staff and secure location as you need a key card to get in the front door. 7-Eleven is just down the street and Khaosan is a bit further down.

    Amazing hostel”

    I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff is very polite, really helpful, the rooms are just what you can expect from the ad. Everything was smooth clean, the breakfast was quite nice, I was surprised. You get scrambled eggs,bread, fruit, salad, coffee, tea. Moreover, quite near KhaoSan, and just steps way from all the action, but none of the stress and loudness. I must say that I did not raise any kind of expectation, because you here a lot of mixed reviews, so better be on the safe side. But let me tell you guys, this hostel is a great value for money!

    Simple, quiet hostel a few minutes walk from Khao San road. I was meeting up with friends at another hostel, so didn't hang around too much. It didn't seem like there were many people other guests here, so perhaps look elsewhere if you want to socialise/party. However, everything was fine for my stay, and it was a really great value!

The room was a bit small but big lockers under each bed, AC, really nice shower, clean bathroom and cute little coffee shop in the entrance.
