What a great hostel. The ambience is incredible-- it's going for like early 1900s British home (I think), with lots of wood and cozy decoration. The lockers are huge, which is great for big backpacks, and the rooms and beds are very large. The cafe downstairs has the best hazelnut latte I've had in all of Thailand, and it's a...

The locker is also a plus, you can put all whole backpack in it. Only a few minute to Khaosand Rd. The cafe and coffee was amazing!! I...

As far as Bangkok hostel prices go - this place is definitely mid range. Rooms are big and new, beds comfortable and it's a walking distance from all major attractions. Shared bathrooms are clean and modern. It does tend to be booked in advance, so do not leave it till the last moment. Their webpage needs improvement though as they...

Such a great hostel in a brilliant location. I wanted somewhere that was quiet enough to get enough of sleep but also not too far from temples and good food. The location is a short walking distance (about 20 minutes of walk) from main attractions like the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun. Hostel was very clean and the...

This hotel is a great one to stay! We stayed here three nights our first trip to Bangkok. It has the perfect location, close to all major attractions. The staff was so kind and gave us great suggestions and advice on what to see and where to eat. (The best place to eat, is across the road on the sidewalk".)...

Cool hostel in a great location. Walking distance from some must see temples and plenty of great places to eat in the area. We had a private room which was clean and comfortable. Would recommend to all travelers.

Nothing is perfect but we can all strive to be. The same is true with this lovely little hostel. Clean sheets, a towel provided, a lock for your belongings, and a sweet staff of young ladies to look after you. Coffee shop downstairs has THE BEST iced Thai milk tea. I'm not sure how this classic could have been improved...

Tucked at the corner of Maha Chai road, the hostel is strategically located with attractions (Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Saket and Khao San Road) within walking distance and a diverse variety of food options - Thipsamai for Pad Thai just across the street, and in the evening the street food vendors set up and operate late into the night....

So much love for this hostel!! The staff are amazing and so helpful! They are well educated and provide really good information on everything you ask! They give you names of places in thai so taxis/tuktuk drivers understand and you don't get scammed. The coffee was great! I didn't eat much here because there was street food just across the...
