              Underground squat filled with art music and great vibes”
              Came here for one night and stayed for the rest of my trip. Great people, great place. Has the vibe of Amsterdam squat with a touch of Thai. Very eclectic place in terms of what happens here and what people come here. If you like art, music, freedom - this is a place for you. There are great performances happening all the time, they cook Thai food every second evening, free pool table. And really amazing people. My room was clean and I slept very comfortably. On weekend you don't need to search for party because party happens on the first floor (and those are some of the best underground parties on Bangkok)

              Only stayed here one night but this hostel has a very good vibe and friendly staff! However this might not be for everyone since its not the most clean and comfortable, but I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a more unique and creative hostel, and meeting interesting people. I would come back here longer.

              Room was very different from picture, and had two enormous piles of what I hope was dog excrement! The new room they gave me was so dirty my pants got ruined just from laying in the bed! Also you could clearly see and smell that someone had taken a piss against the wall in the room!

              This hostel is pretty damn horrible ”
              The doors to the room don't lock or even close properly without being slammed shut. The doors & walls are paper thin, even have gaps in them. The door to our room had rusty nails sticking out. The sheets had holes & stains. The fan actually blew up whilst in the room & the replacement fan was a desk fan. The worst part was the bed, I'm not sure if it was even a mattress, I think sleeping on the floor would have been more comfortable. I think the bed was literally a mat with a sheet on it. The toilet was 1 per floor & the shower was shared in the toilet room, there was no basin to wash hands on my floor. I was meant to stay for 2 nights but after staying for 1 I wanted to leave immediately. The whole place did also smell of cat piss& there was barely any working lights. I will say that the staff were friendly & the vibe of this hostel would be cool if it wasn't so rank...or it would be worth it if a room cost $1 not $1 less than actually good hostels. Sorry Overstay I had to be honest!

              Quite charming if you can appreciate creativity, it's really colourful and artistic. The staff are friendly. $100 deposit for a padlock for your door unless you have your own. There are some sweet cats and dogs around, which is lovely. If you are worried about noise then dont stay on friday or sat - we stayed on sun & mon which were quiet, except for a half hour drum practice which started at midnight one night. 711 is 1 minute away. Kaosan road is 35 mins walk. There are bathrooms with cold showers & toilets on each floor. It is a no frills hostel with only the essentials. They have a drinking water tap which is a bonus! There are mosquitos and fleas about so pack some bug spray/ deet. Note: This hostel is out of the way. The buses are unreliable and a taxi can be a bit pricey due to the distance of everything, just double check location before you book. A solo backpacker should enjoy this place, theres a good level of friendliness and the bar has decent prices too.

              Great Getaway from the Bangkok Tourist Center”
              Overstay is located in a residential neighbourhood that has proximity tourist sites, but is very authentically native Bangkok. Walk in one direction to find nighttime street food markets and in another to find a Bangkok supermall. The building itself fits the character of the surrounding neighbourhood, but with plenty of its own twists. It's a 6 floor (sorry, no elevator) building with artwork done in a number of styles from various artists that have stayed there over the years. I happened to be around for the 9th anniversary party, so that should give you some idea of the array of art styles. Speaking of the party, this is where the double-edged sword sword comes in. In addition to being a guest house, Overstay prides itself as being an independent art and entertainment venue. They welcome any artist to come in and play at any time and host regular DJs and bands. This can last until late hours and will not be for everyone. There are dorm and private rooms, both of which I stayed in during my time there. Both types of rooms are fairly basic, but the mattresses have certainly improved since my first stay. Every morning, I met the regular cleaning ladies who come in, wash all the empty floors and bathrooms, and will give you a change of sheets or clean your room if you let them know. Or alternatively, ask a staff member to ask them. Overall, I enjoyed my stay here tremendously. The atmosphere and people who stay and work there are fantastic and many are long-term or repeat visitors. This makes information very accessible and a great environment to make new friends or travel buddies.

              For sure the place has its soul and specific atmosphere, I am definitely able to understand that some people may like it.

              James, first of all you forgot your wallet nobody stole it i think that's the most important point here. Secondly we responded to your email within one day of you asking us and you never replied ; here the message we sent to you : "James, brother hey we found it after a while... Another dude who stayed after you in that room thought it's his and tooked it but when he found out that it's not his it came back to us!!! :) Long story short. I have a guy here from Australia who goes back in May or I would wait that someone passes by who goes back to Ausi faster and give it to them. Thats how we normally do it... but if you want it posted I can do that as well... Cheers Flow" So instead of reading your emails you went on agoda and complained of theft really ? you should know us better. Now if you still want your wallet back maybe you change your insulting review and we ll find a solution to that . Yuval

              Great place for chill out and meet people!!”
              The overstay is like a big hippie house where you can play instruments, make your own art and also meet amazing people! I totally recomend it! Also, you have the bus stop very close ao you can save a lot of money

              this place is extremely dirty”
              very dirty, it smells. There are stray dogs and cats full of bugs inside the hostel. Seriously this place should be shut down. I am surprised that I did not get an illness during the stay. The owners should be ashamed of their so called hostel.

              Hi Gian As the owner of the overstay i would like to assure you that thousands of people have come through these doors and came out with a great smile on their faces. People that still today send us regular messages about their lives and so on, we try to be a very communal place with a close relationship to our guests. Now is the overstay basic in terms of accomodation yes you pay 3 dollars for a dormitory in a hot country things, its not so much that you get what you pay for but we invest in ourselves in the way we think most interesting for people: creating events, having workshops do art and music: not poison the rooms but heavy chemicals.... So yes you may have spotted a cockroaches and you will do everywhere in asia even in 5 stars hotel, so i think you review in unfair sorry especially for our lovely cats and dogs which are very well mannered. enjoy your travels anyway and i hope i changed your mind !
