Do yourself a favor and stay here! You can expect to be helped with directions, navigating public transit, making sure your clothes are temple ready, and so much more. The wonderful staff spoke to my Grab drivers and helped me order food. The hostel attracted cool, friendly people and I had more than one memorable, impactful conversation during my stay. The room and bathroom was impeccably clean. I had a very comfy night with the lovely AC unit in the dorm. The rooftop lounge was so fun with a fabulous view of Wat Arun. It was a nice spot to have breakfast or just relax in the hammock. The location was a much more local spot. I loved seeing the monks out strolling every morning. The subway station is less than a block away and is the cleanest subway I have ever seen. The themed stations are so much fun. Do yourself a favor and take the train! I loved this place and would stay here again in a heartbeat. This was the first hostel I stayed in Thailand. All of the hostels on this trip after this one paled in comparison. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We had the pleasure to stay at this hostel run by our incredible new friend and owner, Orm! She’s created a welcoming, clean, home away from home and I’d stay here again in a heartbeat. It was the deepest sleep I had the entire trip. It’s right by the train station, a rooftop view to knock your socks off, next door to food, massages, shops, and whatever you need. Traveling from US > Hong Kong > Vietnam > Thailand > Home again.

Cozy place, full of friendly atmosphere & service. Good location for old town sightseeing in BKK. Hostel with minimal style with a space for relaxing on the rooftop. I’ll be back for sure. Recommended ^^
