    Awesome Stay!!!”

    Staying at pillow hostel was a last-minute decision and it was probably one of the best decisions we had ever made. We arrived very early at the airport and was tired, but we were able to check-in at a very flexible time. The staff were very friendly and the location is just perfect as it's pretty close to most tourist spots in Bangkok. Though it was close to Khao San road, we had a good sleep. Amenities were like that of a basic hostel, but who are we to complain. Overall I'd give it a 9 out of 10 (Cos nobody's perfect right?). Would definitely recommend this place to travellers, or groups like us. Really had an awesome time here, wish we could've stayed longer.

    Great Location. Friendly Staff”

    Right at the heart of Khaosan road for all the party seekers. The clubs, pubs, bars nearby makes it the ideal place to stay at Khaosan Road. The lady who seemed to be the owner was helpful beyond words. We were in a family room which is at the top most floor so the noise didn't bother us much from the club downstairs but if you were to be in a hostel in the lower storeys you might have to bear up the boom from the music. Ideal if you are planning to party until late night. All in all great place to stay and i would definitey stay here again.

    It was a great experience staying in the hotel. The owner, attended to all our needs and was ready to give advice on things to do, its right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Khaosan road, so be ready for those night time partying noise. I would gladly comeback to this hostel again anytime! highly recommend it!

    Nice location and friendly staff ”

    This hostel is located in the middle of Khao San Rd. if you want a happy sleep during night time please find other hotel far away from this area. You can hear every single rhythm of cd/live band music but if you're happy with it just go ahead book this hostel. Staff are away nice and smile widely, not too much condition upon check-in process. I booked 2 rooms, there were cleaned as normal hostel standard, I can immediately sit on the room floor without hesitate. The price worth staying in budget hostel. Recommended!!

    very near to Khaosan Road, so many street food, bar and mini market. we get the top floor beside laundry area, we have our own area, the bathroom is outside the bedroom and a bit dark if you take a bath at night. since the location very near the Khaosan Road, it's noisy but I don't have problem with it. kind of loving the different ambience of this hostel tho.

    Good, but very loud.”

    This resort is just off of Khaosan road, is in a good location, and is reasonably priced. The place is clean and the staff are friendly. Apart from the room being extra damp (even for BKK), the only issue is the noise from the nightclub adjacent to this building. If you're into listening to 30 second rotations of R&B and hip hop music with poorly added base until 3am, I suggest renting a room here.

The staff, specially the old lady, were nice. Location is perfect as the hostel is accessible to everything you need in Khao San.

    It is what you paid for. Bedrooms are very small! Staff not very helpful. It is however in the center of khaosan road which makes it very easy for you to get around Bangkok. There are a ton of restaurants, coffee shops and supermarkets around. Only issue is: noise !!!! If you are not in the mood to party don't stay here! You will listen to load music till 3am every nighy

    The location is good because it is in the heart of Khaosan Road. However there is a bar beside the hostel so at night you won't be able to have a good sleep. The loud bass is vibrating in our room. The staffs are good tho, they will help you carry your baggage upstairs since they don't have elevator.

    In the heart of khao san road”

    If you are a party person then this is a place for you. It’s located in the heart of khao san road in one of the arcades with easy access to restaurants, bars, shops and clubs. The club downstairs plays music really loud. The base is so crazy that the whole room vibrates. As long as you plan to party till 3am it won’t be a problem. Also it seems to be the case only on the weekend. Monday and Tuesday we had no problem going to bed before midnight. The rooms were clean enough, beds comfortable and walking distance to the royal palace and wats.
