Reviewed 19 July 2009

I stayed at HQ for two nights in July with 6 other friends. The experience was wonderful all around.

Pros:
> Service was fantastic. Owners make a point of befriending their customers.
> Bathrooms were very clean and well conditioned. Big deal when you're on the road.
> Nice lounge with fozball. They have fozball. Enough said.
> Excellent location. Very close to public transit.

Cons:
> 8 people bunk rooms are a bit small.

HQ was recommended to me from a fellow backpacker before i headed to Bangkok and i was certainly pleased. located right on silom soi 3, you`re in a perfect location to see the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. you`re a 5 min walk away from the MTR and the infamous Patpong redlight district.

Clean and modern design makes for a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. the beds are spacious and comfortable. the washrooms/showers are very nice and very very clean! lots of books/magazines and information for Bangkok in the lounge area. Free internet at the 2 computers was a huge plus. and a foosball table! great way to hang out with fellow backpackers and make new friends. there`s another lounge on the first level with movies, drinks and snacks. there`s also a 7-11 located right across the street if you want more variety.

the staff are AMAZING. they`re all very friendly and helpful in regards to what you need and information that you want. definitely one of the best staff in terms of service and friendliness.

i would highly recommend HQ to anyone planning to travel through Bangkok. you won`t regret it!

We stayed for 2 nights in a private double room. The bed was good and bathroom was huge. In addition, free breakfast and internet are provided, very good considering nothing opens in Bangkok until 10am. The staff were excellent and helped us out with every enquiry, including tours and booking accomodation elsewhere. Will definitely use again when back in Bangkok.

The enthusiastic stuffs helped me a lot with finding the places I want to go. they also write the note in Thai for me and taught me to show the note to taxi driver in case they doesn't know where I want to go.

Also, the room rate is reasonable according to the
great location - few mins walk to Silom Soi 2 , BTS station, and can get food easily around there.
cleanliness enviroment and dorms room.

Although the room is a little bit small, but it's not a problem for me and my partner. Besides, we girls love the big big shower room @ HQ hostel. a totally different hostel experience ever!!

HQ Hostel has the distinction of being the first hostel i've ever stayed at in Bangkok. What prompted me to give it a try was first and foremost, they have a really cool website. Second, i've never stayed at the Silom area before. And third, the rooms/beds are so easy on the pocket!

Upon my arrival, I had a very warm greeting from the front desk, and of course I didn't fail to notice that everything looks as it is just like in the website. What you see is what you get. I like that!

On the lobby area is Mofu Cafe Bar. So that in itself is a nice addition to the hostel - it has it's very own coffee shop where guest can relax and mingle with fellow travels. What better way to do that than with a cup of coffee right?

The M Type room can accommodate four people. Mine was located on the second floor and is just beside the shared toilet and bath. The bed is comfortable and big, and lucky me I get to have a bed with lots of space where i can put my luggage. Also there's a small cabinet/locker for each guest at the bottom of the bunk beds. The aircon is working properly and the room is being cleaned everyday. Everything worked well for me in the room, the only suggestion i would give has got something to do with paddings. I hit my head on the top bed one too many times. ouch! So maybe some rubber or foam padding can be placed to prevent permanent injury. Other than that, I don't have any complaints at all.

As with all hostels, security is a must, and HQ provides that. The owners even mentioned improving it. Hence, i really need not go there since they are aware of what needs to be done in the hostel. Believe me when i say the owners and the staff know what they are doing, on top of being very warm and accommodating people!

The best thing about HQ is that it's top-notch yet affordable! And i even got my fourth night free. So better check out their monthly promos on their website. They always come up with really good deals.

Before i end this, did i mention they got the TOP RATED HOSTEL award from hostelworld.com? The owners should be proud! They got something really good going on in silom soi 3.

If you are ever looking for a place in Bangkok that's afforadable, clean, has excellent location, great staff, and one that is ever improving... HQ is your choice. You'll also get a bonus of meeting the coolest and warmest people in HQ, and that's why i consider it my new home in Bangkok.

I stayed in a private room. There's little room to move but the bathroom is HUGE. One unfortunate aspect of staying in the private room was having to walk 5 flights of stairs every night and the wifi doesn't reach that far up.

Staff was very helpful, the place was very clean and modern, and the location is perfect if you're into the Silom nightlife.

Firstly, after an ATM swallowed my credit card and being cashless, one of the staff acompanied me to the banks head branch to explain what had happened and to act as an interpreter. Then after a big night out I was pickpocked at a club loosing all my credit/debit/cash and with a bus to catch to Cambodia the next morning at 6am I was fretting somewhat. Thanks to the staff at 6am in the morning I made the bus, met up with my friends who lent me some cash and was on my way. On both occassions they went out of their way to insure my stay was a memorable one. The hostel is well located, very close to the BTS and clean and comfortable, with undoubtably the fastest WiFi connection in Bangkok!
