Stayed here for four nights in March 2011.
The pictures here on the website are very accurate. The hotel is located in walking distance to Khao San Road and in slightly longer walking distance to Wat Phra Kew and Wat Pho.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. When I left very early in the morning, the woman at the desk called me a taxi, spoke to the driver to ensure the cost of the trip, and stood there and waved goodbye as the taxi drove off. Small gesture, but it was very nice.
Rooms were great. Everything worked perfectly.
My only complaint would be the location. It's a bit far out from the Skytrain, which is helpful for getting around. A taxi to the nearest Skytrain station is about $1.50 USD and takes about 20 minutes so it's not that big of a deal.
When getting a taxi back to the hostel, be sure you have a map or better yet, just a picture of the nearby Democracy Monument. You'll be able to guide the taxi from there. It was occasionally difficult to get a taxi back to the hotel that would use the meter (as opposed to charging an exorbitant fare), but it was fine.
Overall, I would highly recommend this hostel. I enjoyed my stay here!
