I've been to Bangkok for 3 times staying different hotel/hostel for experience sake but still..nothing beat HQ Hostel. Me and my friends are designer from Malaysia and we love the whole design of HQ. Clean, and contemporary. Love the idea of the map with Thai words in your website to ease us to find your HQ...since most of the cab drivers in Thailand don't understand English. The staffs in HQ are super friendly. They help us to catch a cab back to Airport since we are running late. Very near to BTS station and 7 eleven. I've recommended this Hostel to my friends here and they too love the experience. See u guys again.

My friend and I wanted to get away from the crowds of Koh San Road but still be in the main of the city and be near the metro for convenience. This place fit the bill. Our local friend recommanded HQ was we were a bit apprehensive with the location but I really enjoyed this hostel. Their common room is well stocked with games, movies, and free computers and the staff was helpful and freindly. The only drawback is their lockers are quite small.

I've not stayed in any other hostels so I'm possibly not best placed to review this hostel. The staff on the desk seemed efficient and the security it very good. The whole place feels like a concrete car park with some walls bricked up! The rooms have concrete floors, and our room had 2 bunk beds crammed into a rediculously small space. The individual draws had not been cleared, it did have air conditioning but prisoners get more space!! The location is perfect theres an irish bar doing food within 5 yards and across the main road is the main Silom party. In between are markets shops and strett food. We only stayed a night and the back backers looked happy enough but you will not be happy if used to hotels.

Dear Norrisg24,
Thank you for your review and honest with us. We are very sorry that our design is not fit with your style. The reason behind this look and feel came from our urban style of decoration that we want to reflect the central city location of our hostel. We use our inspiration from Silom street to create the future of Silom atmosphere with warmth service around.

And we are sorry if the space is too limited for you as the room that you book was part of dorm style. If possible, we would love to welcome you to stay at our Type S room where you will get more space and privacy. We hope we can escort you next time. :)

Warmth regards,
HQ management team

Was treated so well by the staff even though they haven't officially opened. They were scrambling to get things ready but still made sure i was taken care of.

About 10minutes from Chong Nonsi BTS with my short legs and easily located near Bangkok Bank, HQ Hostel provided me with excellent service before I arrived with quick replies via e-mail on rates and reservations. Very clean dorms and toilets with reliable internet access. Love their fluffy comforters. Only downside would be this hostel is not exactly cheap. I'd recommend renting an apartment if you're staying in Bangkok for a month or more.

The owners are there and want to get to know you - v. rare. The staff is super friendly. Lots of advice for places to go, eat, and other misc advice. Stayed with big group of friends and we found the rooms to be excellent, and the bathrooms were fantastic. Easy to get around from and the lounge area is very well setup. Tv, computers, games, beanbag chairs! The beanbag chairs alone did me in. Oh and a cafe inside and mini-bar. Definitely would stay there again upon next visit to bangkok.
