    Just badThe whole reason I stayed here is because other hostels were sold out of single rooms with shared bathrooms. The only good thing about this hostel is location. The room was smelly. It smelled like some kind of mosquito spray or floor cleaning liquid. It was unpleasant. It smelled like a massage place. The floor was really sticky. I arrived around 7 am. and no one was there. They posted phone numbers on the door but when I called them, no one answered. I had to carry my luggage with me. Fortunately, I only needed the place to sleep only. Shower pressure is very low. There was this smelly urinal next to a shower area. This place really needs renovating. For single rooms with shared bathrooms, it's not worth the price at all because I could get the same rate at a hostel at the opposite side which is so much better than this place.

    Basic facilities yet great location and value for moneyThis hostel is situated near BTS Sala Daeng station and surrounded by many stores to choose from. The staff are nice and friendly. It is currently undergoing renovation (construction is usually done late in the morning). The room that I've stayed in the 3rd floor has just been renovated. Facilities are basic (good bed, shared CR, Wifi). I hope that they provide drinking water to their guests.

    Great place for a budget traveller”

    The location is great, near to everything in Silom & a short walking distance to MRT & Skytrain. Whoever commented the place was dirty & horibble, that was probably before the renovation. I was sceptical at first when I booked for the place but chose to risk it because of the great price & location. But when I arrived, I was greeted by a sweet & friendly receptionist and the pleasant albeit small lobby. The room was clean & nice. Certainly more than good enough for me to sleep & take a rest for a while before I venture out the whole day to see the wonderful things in Bangkok. That's the whole point of visiting here right? Of course the hostel could do better, but for the price, I have no complain.

    Close to the BTS, lots of shopping, local markets, lots of local food and close to Patpong Night Market. Great service - the reception is very friendly and speaks English well. The hostel is in need of renovation but it's adequate for the price and location. We changed our booking from a couple days to 6 because of the location and price.

    General experience wasn't too bad but only because I'm not demanding guest. Instead of clean and neat room with beds I got room with old mattresses stacked one on another as a bed, old paint going off the walls and generally ugly room. Photos presented completely different room and I'm almost sure these photos were not from this hotel at all. Anyway, you get what you paid for

    The staff is really friendly and helpfull.The dorm rooms are big enough, comfy bed, free coffee and tea!

    I stayed at the urban age hostel for a couple of nights and it was great. Location is perfect (bus stop, sky train and near to loads of veggie food stalls),it's cheap for being BKK, the staff is always willing to help and try to make you feel at home. The wifi works fine and the bathrooms are clean. I have to admitt that during the might it is abot noisy because it is a soi street of silom road, but i mean, it's the concrete jungle we're talking about. Just put some earbuds in and it will be fine, or go for a good walk and you'll be so tired you will sleep like a baby! I will deffo come back if i'm at bkk again :D

    I was lost my way to find this hostel at the first because I forgot to screenshot the map before I arrive in Bangkok.. But the location basically preety good, near to MRT and BTS station, the night markets and few shopping complex.. The room bit crumpy for 6 people, the bed is ok but the bathrooms and toilet should be clean up often.. The bathroom floor bit dirty and obviously not smell good.. But I am really thankful to the staff Pai which so lovely helping me so much during my stay.. Really recommended if you are in really tight budget..

    Definitely a budget stay”

    Good location, nice staff, cheap

    Well, I was in a hurry when I booked and didn't carefully read the reviews, so I have only myself to blame for that. The name Urban Age is kind of ironic considering the condition of everything. I stayed in a private room and, through the magic of camera angles and lack of detail, the room was not as nice as pictured. I have been living and traveling in SE Asia on a budget for years and I think my standards are pretty low, honestly. But everything was just plain dirty. The shared bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in days, and clearly wasn't during the 2 days I stayed there. My bedsheet was threadbare, torn, and stained--as were the walls. The pillow was hard and lumpy and left me with a neckache. Contrary to other reviews, I found the staff nice, at least. But I really can't recommend staying here. There are so many better options in Bangkok, even on the smallest budget.
