This place is in a quiet location so do not stay here if you want the busy life of Bangkok. If you do not mind a quiet neighbourhood then this place will be for you. The rooms are clean and the hostel is nice overall with a good pool on the rooftop. There are a few negatives: one being the...

I booked a balcony room online through Agoda for my 3 night stay. I specifically paid more to have this more spacious room, but was simply told 'it's not available' when I inquired on my first day. I lost the extra money I paid for the room and the staff could not have cared less.

Stayed here my last two nights after a month long trip. I picked it solely based on the pool and the price, because that's really all it has to offer. If you stay here, download the app "GrabTaxi," and you can easily get to the huuuge Tesco Lotus, 7/11, and other restaurants. Careful though, the drivers don't speak any English....

Writing as a recent college grad with relatively low expectations, the hostel, particularly its location in an area that appears to be a burgeoning factory district, is entirely unsatisfactory. For your own sake, find something that's not a 20 minute walk to merely reach a main road and a 30 minute cab ride to reach anything worthwhile

I stayed for 3 nights in this hotel and it was good, they have a nice pool on the rooftop, the got a gym but they only have a static bycicle and a multimachine but it doesnt work properly. Any way its close to the subway just 10 minuts walking and you can go every where. what I liked most...

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...

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

“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.”
