Reviewed 9 January 2014

As other reviewers stated, be prepared to pay a 500Baht deposit for the room key (surprise to us). We stayed here our first night of the trip, which was a mistake. We did not sleep well at all due to the close proximity to Khao San Road and the noisy debauchery that occurs there. It was fun to be so close to everything, but it was a little too close in my opinion. We also experienced loud, drunken men running through the halls late night (early morning, technically). The beds are right on the floor and are a little uncomfortable, but not too bad. The breakfast was included in our stay, but was really unappetizing.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from Khao San Road if possible. Some rooms were much louder than others.

The sign stated they take like five different currency seeing as they only take cash. The lady at the front desk insisted it had to be in Thai baht regardless of the sign posted. You have to pay the room fee plus a 500 baht retain fee for your room key.
There was an information desk with no information and the clerks didn't even have maps of Bangkok to give out. The location is only good for party animals. The noise is going throughout the night and then people yelling through the hallways at all hours. You had to have a ticket for breakfast and for the pool which I think is ridiculous. Laundry services are provided but no slip or bag is in your room to turn your laundry in. Then it says if turned in before noon it will be returned same day in the evening, which is not the case it's the next day. The only thing they do in the room is make the bed and provide towels and toliet paper. They didn't clean the shower or anything the entire time I stayed there. Not impressed with their customer service one bit.

On arrival at 9pm, the lady was rude and seemed suspicious of our reservation. The guys that we're checking in next to us had had their reservation given away. We were rudely instructed to pay the room upfront in Thai baht. Luckily we took out enough cash to just cover the room. ( there is an ATM downstairs which charges $9 on use).
The room had cockroaches and although I requested the quiet side of the hotel, it was impossible to sleep the Sunday night we checked in and every other night after, especially NY eve.
Shower had mould in the tiles and our room was never once cleaned during the 3 night stay. Meant we had to keep asking for toilet paper.
Best part was roof top bar, which is a lovely place to relax despite the blaring music. Also about 20 mins pleasant walk to Grand Palace (worth seeing) and Wat pho( we only saw from the outside).

Khaosan has no BTS train so we ended up getting taxis everywhere.

To MBK 80 Baht
SUkhumvit 100 baht
Central mall (on New Years) 250 baht (rip off but considering the event..)
Siam square (90 baht)
Airport Dong Meung 250 baht

If had another opportunity I would stay a few streets away from the clubs and bars.

We stayed at Dangderm for 2 nights, location was great, in the middle of Khaosan Road where all the shopping and local/international restaurants lie along. Room was spacious, clean and modern. The only thing that can be bothering is the noise from the bars on Khaosan road at night. However, unless you will be the one in those bars or you don't have that much problem with sleeping, then its not a bad option. Walkable distance to some of the attractions such as the Jade temple, Grand Palace etc. Great swimming pool on rooftop, they did offers for beer garden as well, which was quite good for value. All beds are on the floor, meaning the bed is super low, so if your an elder or have problems with your knees, could be problem. If you are unlucky, you might come across staffs with poor English, which can be a problem if you need immediate help.

Room Tip: If have problems with noises from the bars at night, try negotiate and get the quite side of the bui...

I had stayed here a few times a couple years ago but just two weeks ago I stayed there for one night only...
It was the worse place ever. I had originally phoned them from UK to reserve a room but when it arrived they did not have my reservation and they were extremely rude. I end up paying a lot more for a room facing koh San rd which was a nightmare. I am not exaggerating when I say I did not sleep a wink the whole night. The music from the street below was so load that even with earplugs it was hopeless. never again! The only good thing is the pool and that's it!

Stayed at Dang Derm two times while in Thailand for a total of nine nights. Location is excellent because it's right on Khao San Road, and you can't hear any of the craziness from the street if you stay on the quiet side of the hotel. Rooms and bathrooms are large and clean, and there's a beautifully renovated rooftop pool with a full-service bar and menu from the restaurant downstairs. Breakfast is good but ends at 10am which feels too early after a night on the street. The WiFi is a bit of a pain - it works well, but you need a different log-in code for each device and the codes only last 12 hours. Staff were very accommodating when we needed to keep a large piece of art at the hotel for two weeks and have friends pick it up on our behalf. Really happy overall, a solid place to stay in BKK.

Room Tip: Request a room on the quiet side of the hotel if you hope to sleep before Khao San goes to bed.

Very good value for money! Pleasant stay and wasn't too noisy given the location! The buffet breakfast was pretty decent and rooftop pool was beautiful and a nice place to escape. Would stay here again if in Bangkok.
