First impressions were that this hotel looks a lot better in the photos than in reality, but overall not bad for a budget option.
Our room (418) was pretty rustic, the shower had absolutely no pressure, the bed was rather hard, and the air-con hummed - but I suppose you get what you pay for, and for $30 a night I suppose it wasn't too bad. Free wifi was pretty hopeless though with no stable connection.
The winning feature of this hotel is definitely the rooftop pool. A massive relief with all that humidity. Also located on Khao San Rd is a plus, if that's what your looking for. Had no issue with any noise from Khao San - which was because the soundproofing.
A 7-11 type convenience store, foreign exchange, and boots pharmacy at your doorstep also adds points.
Average stay, but once again not bad for a budget option.
