Staying here is so fancy, having meals here is so tasty, esp.for those who love Middle-eastern or Indian cuisines which have strong, spicy taste. The staffs are so friendly, kind and helpful! This guest house also offers travel packages and shuttle services to various destinations, with competitive price. And free nonstop Indian songs, too, in the restaurant, wonderful!

This hostel is perfect for backpackers on a budget, especially those who are planning on partying on Khaosan road at night. Decent room, but it got pretty loud at night as the bears got busier. The sleeping blanket doubles as a shower towel, so plan accordingly!

I stayed here only one night (I don't like cities, so I got out of Bangkok fast), but it was exactly what I needed it to be: cheap and convenient. It's near a bunch of good street food, ATMs abound, and their food (Indian) is fantastic. Don't expect much in terms of facilities - it's very basic. But I was...

I stayed here for 2 days, I paid 200 baht per night. It is not so cheap compared to the other hostels I know in Thailand. It's really close to kau SAN road, great Indian food and the bad was quiet nice.

We stayed here (in a dorm) for 2 nights during our stay in Bangkok before heading up to Chiang Mai. This place was SO much cheaper than all the other hostels and we couldn't understand why. Brilliant location, clean, good bathroom facilities. Fairly quick wifi and extremely helpful staff along with FREE breakfast! What more can you ask for! As...

Visited only for one night, the staff were fantastic, very accommodating and happy to give you any information that you need! There is also an Indian resturaunt downstairs which serves fantastic food. Only negative point was the beds are like rock and there are no safety deposit boxes in the dorms.

We had arrived in Bangkok around 7pm with nowhere booked in advance. We headed in to query prices and got quoted 500 baht for a double room w/ aircon for 1 night. The room was filthy (bathroom even worse) and you're provided with a large towel for a blanket. The bed is literally a piece of plastic with a bed...

Very bad. Dirty, wc broken and shower inexistent. I saw a mouse yesterday night. The slowest wi fi in the world. BUT: cheapest choice, central area and friendly staff. I knew and so in some way I am not disappointed. Be prepared.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
