This is my third visit only two weeks this time its situated in a small cul de sac between two busy roads,to the right there is daytime cafes/restaurants.On the left is two local buses to rambuttri/kha-san road, one stops at the top the other at the bottom.At the top of this road is various shops and eateries and buses into the city, turning left on to samsen rd is Thewet pier (tay-wit) for the ferry.This is a friendly area quiet at night time,hostel couldn`t be better only if breakfast varied.

I liked the chill out area in the lobby and that the room had good working Wifi and AC. But the beds were hard and dirty. We found hair under the blanket, so I slept with my sleeping bag. Moreover one member of the staff couldn't talk English at all. It was really hard asking her for something. Breakfast was also very poor! Just a toast and some scrambled eggs without anything to drink besides tea. For this price I wouldn't go there again. There are a lot better options for staying in Bangkok
