It's close to the skyrail, so transportation is not a problem. Noise from the skyrail however is very bad, so bring earplugs! The showers and toilets are also pretty bad, and it's not possible to close and lock the doors! And the beds are not very comfortable either. On the positive side, the staff are super friendly and helpful, and you always feel welcome.

Easy to find, next to the metro (bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper). Tiny setup with rooms just fitting a double bed. No mosquito net and a shared airconditioned with the room next door... bit weird if you want to have it colder and the neighbour is turning it off... ?

Lady at the reception was nice at checkin but she was hardly there during the day... Expensive for the quality especially the bathrooms were small and cockroaches loved them!

If you want to get mosquito bitten all night, this is the place. I saw a big cockroach in
the bathroom/shower. Rooms are like a prison cell. way too much noise. Reception guy was rude. I wanted to check out the next. day. They wouldnt give me a refund because I reserved 3 days. You have to tell them 48 hours in advance if your walk in customer.
Avoid, avoid. not worth the misery. I went to hostel nearby and it was way better and cheaper.

I stayed at YHA for a couple days at the begininng of my trip and again at the end.

The hostel itself looks very small from the outside but you will learn it actually has 5 floors. The rooms are small and clean and the sleep is comfortable. The bathrooms are communal and very small. The bathroom on the second floor was in need of some minor repair but the other floors were better. The only complaint I have about the washrooms is that there was not an electrical outlet close by for use of electric razor.

The location is ideal for people looking to explore the city because it is about 1 block away from a Skytrain station. It's also around the corner from the infamous Patpong night market. During the day you can find numerous street food vendors just around the corner where you can have delicious meals for about $1 USD. It is aslo close to banking area making it easy to access your international accounts.

This hostel is very secure, having a main door lock with key card access (turned on after midnight). Then a lobby door with keyed entry and then a deadbolt lock on the room door.

There is a small common area where you can sometimes find people playing cards or using the free wifi. The wifi is not very good in the rooms but strong in the common area. I found the hostels set up is not very condusive to a social environment, we ran into many people who were just staying for one night before going somewhere else.

The staff are very helpful in getting you around Bangkok and getting you what you need. On our last day they had no problems with us leaving our bags there for the majority of the day while we waited for flight. Most places are good to do this for a few hours but for extended periods.

Overall I recommend staying here.

For the same amount I paid for a gorgeous room in Phuket with Tv and views etc, the YHA Bangkok provided me with a dark dingy room with very basic bathroom (shower over the toilet and metal dish basin) with no tv.
It was clean but no view.
Only attraction is the location: which was on the airport bus route.
