A friend was moved here from her overbooked hostel so we stayed here as well. A bit hard to find so tell the taxi you want to go to Baan Chantra (seems to be a bit more well known) and walk up from there. It is in the back of a driveway that has a lot of cars.
Reception staff are friendly and helpful. They have lockers for free, just provide own padlock. They sell drinks and have a cafe, but there was no need for us to use it. It is less then 10 mins to Koh San Road.
rooms are basic, sheets had holes in them. We asked for extra sheets and pillows with no problem. Room had aircon (no remote) and blasted all night. Tv and hot shower. Free water.

As for breakfast walk out of the hotel and turn left, on the corner (before crossing anyroads) the little cafe does an excellent breakfast and really friendly motherly chinese lady!) highly recommended.

We stayed here because the location is great, very close in the Khaosan Roas where you can walk by foot for about 15 mins.
The Room are all clean attached with the Bathroom, Hot Shower, Airconditioner, Tv but local channel. Free Wifi and their wifi is Good. However the complaint of so many Farangs. First is the Airconditioner is not cold enough to cool the Room. And the Bathroom is pretty smelly, smell comes from the hole of the bathroom. Otherwise the Hotel is okey. Some Rooms are big some Rooms are NOT. And the Price is a little bit over price for the basic room. But the location of this Hotel is great.

After spending a few hours in their air conditioned lobby while waiting to go to the train station, I realized that the whole family is involved in the running of this hotel. They carried on with their lives despite the fact that I had checked out and was taking up space in their small lobby. They stored our bags for a small fee despite the fact that we had only stayed one night. As well, they had a very friendly and kind housekeeper who went out of her way to answer our questions. After spending two nights at a guest house, we were pleased that we had a cle an air conditioned room with a working toilet. It is a very basic hotel, however, we felt safe and welcomed. We are going to return after our travels in Thailand are complete

Clean, spacious and cheap. Exellent location in an area much more relaxed than Khao San but very close. Staff very nice and the atmosphere is very relaxed. There is an area 2 relax at top with a terrace. Its also quiet 2 be in the middle of everything.

"Very good" location if you want to be near the craziness of Khao San Road. Clean bed sheet, everything else dirty, very depressing looking, extremely basic, down a dodgy looking alley way with cockroaches. There are better for the price in the area. Don't bother. We cancelled after one night.

10 minutes away from Khao san Road I discovered this hotel in 2004 and came back there at 5 times since that time. The staff is friendly, the rooms are not new but one by one being renovated every time I was there, husekeeping every day, prices very reasonable, cheap cold drinks and Internet at the 24-hour reception, met many nice travellers there every time. You should make an email-reservation in advance (and then find your name at the whiteboard at the reception :-) - event though I wasn't sent away even once when I showed up there without reservation - breakfast not included (only sometimes they have special promotions) but they have their own restaurant on the street where you can have cheap breakfast and lunch. Many foodstalls and 2 "7 elevens" within 2 minutes walking distance - also the rooftop terrace is a nice place to relax, even if they fenced off the upper area a few years ago from where you had amazing views to the Golden Mountain and the skyscrapers at Silom area... When in BKK next time I will definitely go there again.

Very simple but clean hotel in a great location of Bangkok. The front desk is openned 24 hours and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We were minutes away from all the sights!! The price was great ( only 10$ a day for two people) .

Ah the Suksawad Hotel, such fond memories I have of you...

Located in Banglamphu within easy walking distance of Khao San Road (about 500m) it is at a decent location, but there isn't much public transport (maybe the bus?) you can take to get to the center of Bangkok, so you depend on taxis that can be troublesome at times (especially near Khao San Rd during rush hour). The area is also bustling with professional con artists capable of whisking unwary tourists off on a far-too-cheap ride to see some sights (and getting conned somewhere in between), but this is probably the same with every touristy area in Bangkok.

We stayed at Suksawad Hotel for a week in May 2012 and other than the heat, the ants, a little noise and the cleanliness not much bothered us. The fans do not make the rooms bearable at all times (but they do at night, which is most important) and there's some noise from the road and the ramshackle sheet metal roofs of the next building (you can't shut the windows in the fan rooms, which cost 400 baht / night - so maybe an air con room for 500 baht is a better option). The rooms themselves are relatively spacious with ensuite bathroom (mine was filled with small spiders, but I like spiders, so no problems). The rooms are somewhat clean, but my bed sheet was stained and a little dirty.

The staff are quite friendly, though most of them don't speak English that well (I admit my way of saying "We'd like to extend our stay for another three nights" might've been expecting too much). You can buy drinks cheaply directly from the hotel, there is free wifi in the rooms and you can wash your laundry for 20 bahts at the machines near reception, which is cheaper than laundry services in the area. There are some seats and sofas on the corridors of the hotel and on the 4th floor there's a lovely terrace meant for drying your washed clothes and spending the heat of the day in shade. Lockers are available if you bring your own padlock.

Please bear in mind that cleaning is done on request only, which eluded us for days until we asked from the reception.

When we arrived it wasn't well sign posted....
The staff couldn't speak much English and although the rooms were clean, they were hot and stuffy.
The building looked like an old mental asylum, and the furniture and rooms matched this too.

Location was okay, quite a walk to Khao San.... plenty of better and cheaper hotels/guest houses.

We stayed in a double room for about USD10 a night, and let's say: you get what you pay for. The room is VERY basic, but comes with towels. The shower was cold and probably my biggest complaint about the hotel. And the ants that invaded our room - we even had to buy bug spray in the end. The location is not bad, you can walk to Khao San Road in ten minutes, and there is a big food market along the road every day - really cheap food. We never had the complimentary breakfast but I don't think it's amazing. Wi-fi always worked.
