Sadly The price increase of 50%as meant that I can no longer stay here .I have stayed here for 4 yrs now always long stay but now I have to move out I am heart broken as I intended staying 4 weeks now I am going to stay else where ,I wish someone had told me of this increase.If the price came within my range I would return.The staff are like a brother with 5 daughters to me,I am very sad to leave this way.yours faithfully David Wilson

Basic, Comfortable & Clean. Very friendly, courteous & Trained staff. Good sleep quality and private rooms have balcony. Free WiFi & Breakfast. Good location (old Bangkok historical destinations and famous Khaosan Road), Public transport available near. Staff approachable anytime for valuable tips to move around city. can meet & socialise with inmates from various countries.Suggestions: 1. Breakfast though sumptuous can be improved. 2. At least 1 bottle of drinking water can be provided per day.

Pros: Big rooms (more hotel then hostel-like), working AC Cons: towels and linens were not fresh (there were hairs on linens)

Thank you for your comments. Sorry about your linens. Of course if you would have brought this to our attention during your stay we would have been more than happy to replace them for you. Hope to see you again soon.

Jederzeit wieder in dies ruhige Hostel. Wir haben uns als Gruppe mit 6 Jugendlichen und 3 Erwachsenen dort sehr wohlgefühlt. Sehr freundliches Personal! Und sehr empfehlenswertes Strassenrestaurant um die Ecke.
