Rainbow Khaosan Hostel and Guesthouse
Ranked #828 of 1,303 Speciality Lodging in Bangkok
Reviewed 10 March 2013

Stayed 2 night at this guesthouse. Beds are hard but sleep surprisingly well. Location is great just off khaosan road, Unfortunatly this does go with considerable amount of loud music. All in all you get what you pay for. Big bonus they serve great Indian food.

I arrived in Bangkok late at night and by myself, I had to ask a couple of people where it was located (through a cafe/ restaurant which is their own however for future reference does really good food) my room was very basic. A bit run down and just a fan no air con. The beds are rather hard as well. However, overall it's a good location and as I said, you get what you pay for. The staff are friendly though limited english.

I stayed in the dormitory for 2 nights but the 3rd day in the morning I have been announced that there are some bookings and no more space is available for me.. they told me to wait till 12:00 if somebody check out.. it is my first time that happens to me.. the stuff didn't told me that I cannot stay more than 2 nights.. because my original plan was to stay 5-6 nights.

The hostel is cheap (200 baht = 5 euros) per night.. without breakfast.. it is quite dirty and the bathrooms stink. ONLY during the night there is an aircondition working in the room.. The aircondition turns off automatically around 05:00 - 06:00 in the morning and you wake up because you start sweating. During the day it is extremely hot inside the room and the aircondition is not working. There are some fans in the room but they don't make it cooler.

I had changed a hostel and I moved to de talak hostel / http://www.tripadvisor.com.gr/Hotel_Review-g293916-d2549700-Reviews-De_Talak_Hostel-Bangkok.html It is a little more expensive (250 baht = 6,2 euros per night), outside the touristic area but extremely clean, better facilities etc..

Located at the end of Khao San road. 200 baht a night for a mixed dorm with a fan.
Bed's are very hard, but c'mon 200 baht. Great for backpackers on a budget. Though don't limit yourselves... there are many cheap spots around Khao san round. Hint.. look for any guesthouses.

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs.

We stayed for one night at this hostel. We arrived by bus from Siem Reip and it stopped in front of Khao San Road, which is really something when travelling on budget. The Hostel was conveniently located.
Our room was heading the road and it was too noisy. Despite that, the room was OK, not dirty and the restaurant in the ground floor was an option to consider before heading to the Khao San Road, the street for all kind of evening activities.
