Great hostel close to the station (also airport)”

It was a nice and comfortable stay. Worth the price and there is simple breakfast available. Only minor suggestions: - there should be an enclosed space added in the bathroom shower. Even a low one would be ok as it would prevent water creeping everywhere and having constantly damp floor towels or maybe add another one near the sink. - Staff should leave the air conditioning if a guest is still present. Some guests are still asleep in the morning and I noticed the cleaners would turn it off after cleaning the room. So I’d have to wake up to put it on again once notice it’s hot.

Great room, service, and location”

I only stayed here for a day but the experience was excellent. I booked a bed in the mix dorm room for 276 THB on Agoda. When I came checking in, I was informed that the mix dorm room was already full but the system has not registered that before I booked it. Despite that, the staff instead put me in a triple room. (More privacy!) The room was well cleaned and ok. I can only complain about how the room isn’t so well lit but it wasn’t a major problem since I only stayed there for 1 night. Everything else is great too. The toilet and bathroom are good. They also provide a few selections of light food. It’s going to worth every pennies (or whatever currency it is) you paid. The location can’t be any better. A minute or two of walking can get you to 7-11 or Phayathai BTS. If I get a chance, I’ll definitely be here again. 👍

Stayed for 2 nights in a dorm type for women. I loved that they didnt turn off the aircon during the day since other hotels do this. I also loved that it was near to the Phya Thai station and 10 mins walk to pratanum market. Wise choice for budget travelers

So comfy to stay. The place is near BTS Phayathai just around the corner. The style is beautiful and quiet recommended for solo traveler. However, the wall is thin. You can hear anything outside but it’s fine. There are a blanket, shampoo and soap. I’m impressed! Gonna come back here again

Very convenient location, decent hostel.”

This place was pleasant enough. The showers are awesome! Best I've seen anywhere in Southeast Asia. The door to the room didn't lock but there were lockers large enough to store a large backpack. The location is super convenient for going to or coming from the airport and is located near the BTS for easy transit around the city. It is tucked away but is easy enough to find. The only thing I wish they would add would be privacy curtains in the mixed dorms.

Good location, near 2 lines BTS and airport link. Easy to find the hostel but dont have an elevator. It takes time to bring your heavy luggage to walk upstairs or downstairs. Clean room with balcony and potted tree. Especially they have a hanger in the room and outside the balcony, i really love this point. I’ll comeback if i have a chance ^^.
