Very close to the sky train so never too far from central Bangkok. However the hotel was in a secluded neighbourhood where you could forget the noise and traffic of Bangkok. Large clean rooms, very helpful and friendly staff and a nice roof top pool.

This hostel was very nice and clean. The only downside was how far away from everything. It is close to a Tesco which is convenient if you like restaurants, but the hostel is far away from street foods. If you want to stay out of the business of Bangkok then this location would be ideal. We took taxis to everywhere...

We decided to book this hostel because it was away from the hustle and bustle of Khoa San road and because it said there was a rooftop swimming pool. Unfortunately when we arrived the pool was being serviced which was a huge disappointment because we wanted to swim and relax for 4 days and now we couldn't go up there...

I liked: The rooftop pool, its far from the center location (unless you absolutely want to stay right in the action), good WIFI on each floor, someone at the reception 24/24, nice little neighborhood with walking distance small restaurants, 7/11 I didn't like: The fact that guests cannot use the kitchen (fridge is ok, but not the oven) therefore you...

Clean but fairly basic. Good a/c and strong wifi. Nice clean bathrooms, good shower. Rooftop pool was a godsend when first arriving in Bangkok - close to On Nut BTS (10 min walk) but 30 mins from Bangkok centre. Limited food selection in lobby and staff speak next to no English but very friendly. Easy to reach from BKK airport...

After staying in Khao San backpackers' area for three nights, I was getting tired of the noise and scene. So I book a place closer to the city center. This place is a bit out of the way--it took a taxi driver a while to find it--but it is fantastic. It does take 20 mins walk to get to the...

The hotel is very difficult to find. You won't easily find taxi/ tuk-tuk from here. You would have to walk almost a kilometer to reach the nearest 7Eleven or taxi. The staff is helpful and the place has a pool. Other than that, there are quite a few things that were not to my liking: 1. We were a group...

I stayed at this hostel last year and was happy with it so decided to repeat this year. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!! Not sure what happened but everything changed: the staff was obnoxious and unhelpful. The only thing they tried to do is to count the number of toasts we had for breakfast (we had a free breakfast, so some staff members...

This place is cheap and yes it has a pool and yes it is on the roof. But I think a blow up paddling pool would be better. It is plastic lined and has been put together really badly and not cleaned so after a day its all slippery and a bit gross. I dipped my feet in to cool...

We came here based on its online description, "conveniently located" with "leisure Center", "very clean" outdoor pool and so on... Now I will start by saying our room and the lobby were very clean, toilets kept clean also however during our 4-5 night stay there the cleaners didn't touch our room (private twin) for some reason even though we seen...

“No elevator, therefore choose a room on the second floor if you have a lot of luggage”

“Best views are the rooms facing the road, avoid rooms near the staircase/ shaft.”

“all rooms have very good Air Conditioning. You control the AC unit with remote control provided inside dorm room. All mattresses are very good and hotel grade quality. VERY clean and shiny floor. Its like a luxury budget hostel. Have TV on the lobby floor. Have computer but they will charge you after 30 minutes of Internet usage. The location is very bad that you have to walk about 30 minutes to the nearby 7 & Eleven and few more minutes if you want to walk to BTS or Testco Lotus which have different restaurants, including McDonalds and food court. Have plenty of lockers for your use outside dorm rooms in the hallway.”
