Think it was a good place to stay. Not easy to find for the taxidriver, but when he found it, it was actually quite central I think. You can walk to Lebua State Tower and the SkyTrain, and lot is happening in the area. For me it was the first time in Bangkok, so I do not know the city. The room was clean and tidy, and the staff very helpful.
You can hear the noise from the street, so remember earplugs, if you are noise-sensitive. I would stay there again if I was on a budget-holiday.

Room Tip: Remember earplugs

Dear Lisa678,

Thank you for the nice words. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope you took advantage of help and advice from our knowledgeable service guides since it was your first time in the city.

Should you have any problems in the future guiding taxi drivers to New Road Guest House we have incorporated a Thai/English map at our website. Bring this along and it should help taxi drivers finding their way around and travelers to find their way "home".

We hope to welcome you back again.

On behalf of Visit Beyond and the staff at New Road Guest House,
Berit Bonde

This place is okay if you are looking for somewhere cheap in Bangkok. The location isn't great if you want to be in the 'centre of it all' (ie Khao San Road) but it's fine if you're looking for somewhere relatively central and close to bus stops, local amenities etc.

The rooms are......... not exactly sparkling and the ceiling fan was absolutely hopeless. It may as well be ripped down and save on energy! It was almost unbearably hot in the dormitory, but - ofcourse this is to be expected when you pay low budget prices!! The showers were also ok, I wouldn't call them 'clean' but not absolutely layered with dirt either. The dorm was also good because it had lockers and it seemed fairly safe, the main door automatically locks when closed.

Some staff were very friendly, and others not so much. Saying that the cleaner was incredibly sweet and helpful when my friend discovered he had spilled a bottle of drink in the dorm, and I have to sing my praises here because most cleaners would have thrown the mop at him and told him to clean it himself! The breakfast was good if you are looking for something quick and easy, but again don't go expecting anything 5 star.

The downstairs bar area was, again, okay. At least it was air conditioned and it had a half-decent pool table. Atmosphere was generally pretty dead throughout the hostel and I didn't really see anyone attempting to socialise. Except when another backpacker and I discovered a passed out, bruised and bleeding drunk body sprawled on the bathroom floor at 3am in the morning. Something to be said about travellers in Bangkok perhaps, more than the hostel itself!

All in all, an average stop off for my first night in Thailand.

Room Tip: Maybe pay the extra and get yourself a private room

Dear Cassie,

Thank you for your comments; they are very useful to us, since we constantly strive to make the experience better for travelers.

We are glad to hear that you had a nice stay and perceive our place value for money. We try to cater for various needs and budgets, hence the dorm is a very good option if you are on a tight budget. We will however check up on the cleaning as well as the fan. Further it must be mentioned that we also have a dorm room with aircon, should that be favored.

In regards to socializing, we are planning to do several activities events during the week to help travelers socialize. More about this will be posted on our Facebook page in the near future.

We hope you had a great time in Thailand and hope to welcome you back at New Road Guest House again.

On behalf of Visit Beyond and the staff at New Road Guest House,
Berit Bonde

Hello. I stay there 1 night , reception staff is imazing very helpful, they provide also all the information about bangkok, organise trips for you if you interested. Location is great with walking distance to sky train , 5 min drive by taxi to train station a lot off stalls with food around and nerbay is shopping centre. Guest house is very central location. I stay in backpackers room for 450 bat a night , room is small but have everything you need and is quit modern and very clean that's the most important. I would recommend to anyone to stay there is very good value and great location.

it's the place where we always go when we are in bangkok. it's lovely. always full of nice and interesting travelers. it's located in silom area which allows you to get everywhere in bangkok thanks to the close ferry pier and the underground. the area is lovely and the hotel is great. free wifi at the ground floor, nice and clean rooms. athmosphere friendly. we recommend it if you don't like the fake hippies of koh san road.

New Road Guesthouse is a clean hostel with lots of facilities. Friendly staff, huge breakfast and soft beds. They can help you with your travels into Thailand and even beyond that. What I didn't like was the location. It's far from Khao San Road, and the boats only run untill 6pm, so you have to take taxi back.
