“Quirky, clean, a little expensive”
Reviewed 21 February 2014 via mobile

We stayed here after flying in from Cambodia and before our flight home the next day.

The taxi driver had a bit if trouble finding this place so we ended up arriving late at night but the two members of staff were very helpful when we arrived. They helped us with our bags and were very attentive.

We had booked a twin room, which was very small and very white! There was pretty much only space for the two beds and bedside table in there. It was comfortable and clean though and we had lockers in the corridor to store our stuff to make more space in the room.

We had a shared toilet and showers which were clean and close by, but had to be extremely quiet when using them as the dorms were near by and only separated from the corridor by a thin curtain.

One criticism would be that the air conditioning controls were on the ceiling so were unreachable and I got too hot in the morning to stay in the room too long without getting staff assistance to change the setting.

We were told that there was no rush to check out the next morning if the room wasn't booked, but it turned out it was so we had to get out promptly. However we were informed we could still use the showers and other facilities before we left.

During the next day before our flight we relaxed downstairs which was comfortable and chilled out. There is a nice little pool outside also.

Overall it was a lovely little place to stay before our flight home and not too far from the airport. However it was a little overpriced for the size of the room and the fact we had shared facilities. We paid around $36.

This hostel is clean (if not overly white, looks a bit like a hospital!) Staff friendly and helpful, pool a nice extra. Downside is that it's quite far away from city centre and indeed anywhere for food, a struggle when we first arrived as they had stopped serving food at the hostel.

The hostel is good situated foor connenction with the airport, but to city center, one need to go by bus and it's not so near. But it's very quit to sleep.
Included in the price is a swimming pool, wifi, parking lot, but no breakfast. We had one of the 2 rooms on the upperfloor: very clean, very big and enough place to sleep 4. It is more a luxury room than a hostel! The staff is correct. Food in the hostel is not cheap! Better in the Streets around, even for breakfast

After six months of traveling this hostel was such a nice surprise. It's clean, is amazingly well decorated, has high quality food, superb service, great dorm beds with outlets etc, locker that fits entire backpacks etc. Only stayed for one night, so I really couldn't say anything about the social aspect of it.

Only stayed there for one night but the place was awesome. Most of all it was really nice looking, amazingly clean and peaceful, rooms were modern which is something you don't find everywhere in SEA. The staff was really nice and helpful even though we arrived really late. The only bad point is that it's far from everything, but I would recommend it anyway as it is that good!

we loved the loft for 2 people, which can actually be shared by 4 people. The property is simply stunning and in a really quiet area. however, it might be a bit too far away from the city and things to do in the city, so we ended up spending a lotta money on taxi ( you need to get a taxi to get to the closest sky train station) and trains everytime we went back and forth.

However, I would still give this hostel 5 star rating for everyhting except for the location.

The second time we travelled to Bangkok we wanted to stay away from the Khao San road and see more so we chose refillnow based on the price of dorm room and overall style of the place! Upon arriving in Bangkok v early they let us check into our room at 7.30am!
The rooms didn't disappoint and offered simple, very comfortable accommodation. Each section is split in two so it doesn't feel like your in a dorm with other people at all. The food at the restaurant was incredible and reasonably priced too!
Overall I can't find a fault and wish I was staying here longer...
