“Great place all around”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

I stayed here with 2 friends so we had a 3 bed room which worked out really well for us. The bathrooms were very clean and we never had any issues with the sharing aspect. This place can be a bit difficult to find so make sure you know the exact location upon arrival! The location is also great. It's about a 10 min walk from Khao San Road and taxi's are always at hand. The receptionist was amazing with useful information about where to go for dinner, and for excursions outside of Bangkok.

This place is great for people who are a bit more casual, say for friends or individuals travelers, but I wouldn't stay here if I came with my boyfriend. You can hear almost everything through the walls. Luckily we had very nice neighbors so this was never a problem. Breakfast, hot tea, and coffee in the morning was always wonderful.

This is a very clean and cute place to stay. The staff are really friendly and the rooms are good. It's a quite and peaceful locations. My only criticism is that for the price I don't think it should be shared bathrooms. Otherwise, great. However, if you are looking to stay closer to Khao San Road this is not the place for you, it's a good 10 to 15 min walk. Obviously a plus if you are trying to avoid the "delights" of Khao San.

I had one night in Bangkok before I planned to travel to Koh Chang. The staff were really friendly and had sent me detailed instructions on how to get to their place from the airport, which was very helpful. They even organized my bus and ferry ticket, which also involved being picked up by taxi to the bus point. It was really efficient and very good value for money. The guest house is basic but well run. Mattress on the floor, but surprisingly comfortable. The shared bathroom was very clean, and there is free wifi in the rooms, plus computers in the lobby if you don't have your laptop. It is very well located right of Khaosan Rd. The booking comes with breakfast. As a woman traveling alone it's places like this that make all the difference.

Very nice hotel for a good price! We paid 900Bath for a room for 3 including breakfast. Very friendly staff and the free computer are great. It's a 10 minute walk from Khao San road so it's better to stay here and actually get some sleep than stay at Khao San road itself with all the bars etc.

This is a very small guest house with just a few rooms. They are comfortable little rooms but very hard beds - I had a sore back every morning. The location is next to the river about 10 min walk to khaosan road. It is a 80 baht taxi to the sky rail. (tip: always let the meter run, don't negotiate a price - it's always cheaper)

The staff are friendly and they cook a good breakfast with sausage and egg included. The price is 250 baht which is really good value for Bangkok.

We paid around 500 baths for a double room with fan, breakfast included, and such a nice substantial breakfast! I felt back in Dublin with smileys on the toasts haha, and back in Australia with the Milo hot chocolate, and the jam was yummy (though I still dunno what kind of fruit it is mad of).
The lady at the reception desk is so amazing ! With a warm smile she will give you all the info you need, how to get to the boat, how much to pay for a taxi to the station, or how much for a long tail boat... All these kinds of things other guest houses don't do or try to take a comission instead... It gives you your trust in people back ^^. She even went under the rain one evening to find us a taxi, how cool is that ??? And let us use the shower before heading to the station !
Bathrooms are big and clean (1 bathroom per floor), bedrooms are clean, mattresses on the floor a bit hard, our room had 3 fans ! The veranda is great for meals, and wifi works SO well even in the room (305). You have 2 small bottles of water on arrival, we love it !
The only thing is that because of the teak structure the girls next room woke us up early morning (were really loud, could have kicked them...) but I guess if people are respectful you won't hear them.
We totally recommend this place !

Room Tip: Room 305 had great wifi connection and bathroom is next door.
