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...

The biggest complaint I have is that the staff was constantly loud. At any time of the day/night, there was always banging ...so unless you plan to get up before 5:00am this can get annoying. Also, although they come in to make the beds, they do not knock before entering the room. Other than this it was close to some...

Dear Victoria, Thank you for your comments, we are sorry and clearly understand that you felt negative towards our property. It was the reason that we were going to charge you late check out then right after the conversation, you reviewed us on TripAdvisor with skipping the fact and making up the other negative points.

Fantastic hostel, very clean rooms and bathrooms. Beds were freshly made everyday, there was plenty of space for storage of belongings and a padlock was provided, at no extra cost, to secure them. Staff were very friendly and always greeted and smiled as I walked past. Great location in the city, a short walk to Chinatown, the train station and...

Niras Bankok Cultural Hostel is one of best hostels I have ever stayed in. The rooms are not only clean but the service and food is excellent. Would highly recommend.Think of this as more of a hotel than a Hostel.

The best hostel I stayed in so far. With good service and always a smile on their faces. Like a hotel vibe. About 15min walk from the famous street- Khoa San Road. If I ever going back to Bangkok I'm definitely staying in this hostel again. Thank you!

-Great hostel. More like a hotel than a hostel which has great character. It isn't clinical like some other hostels. -Coffee shop/restaurant downstairs by reception. -Bedrooms are very nice with big storage lockers for backpacks. Massive beds and little shelf by each bed with a light and socket. -Location is very good. Really nice area in Bangkok. It can be...

The room was very clean with a comfortable bed in a very walkable location close to restaurants and sites. The staff was friendly and spoke English well. The cafe at the hostel had reasonable prices with coffee and simple breakfast. The wifi worked great and the Pad Thai place across the street is really good!

(Based on staying at their building across the street) The room, toilet, and showers were all very clean, as was the common area though I think I saw 2 people using it the whole time I was there. In this building there is no social vibe that you usually get, seemed a bit like a ghost town though I knew...

A great hostel, in the heart of the city, location makes it perfect for prime cultural muses of Bangkok, Thailand. The staff is very friendly and helpful as one excepts, the café serves great coffee and I recommend their Paninis. They gave us the room across the street which is in a smelly lane, although rooms inside were clean. Main...
