Having booked this homestay based on tripadvisor ratings, I was expecting it to be nice. What I got far exceeded all my expectations.
This homestay is beautifully appointed. The room was an excellent size (4th floor), VERY clean, and had everything one would need for a great stay. Friday was stocked with water. Soap and shampoo were in large refillable bottles, and were a nice quality. The terrace/balcony had real bamboo and was a great place to lounge. Towels were soft. Coat hangers, glasses, q-tips...even an electronic mosquito killer (which I didn't need). I have to stress how clean the room was - it was perfect.
Across the hall was a small kitchenette complete with kettle, microwave, toaster, snacks and everything you need. There is also a small freezer where you can purchase treats or frozen dinner type meals (20 - 80THB). For breakfast, cereal, pastries and toast were set out. When I had my 4am departure, pastries were ready and waiting for me!
The owners are beautiful hosts who truly love what they do. They are very attentive to detail and are always ready to help if you have questions.
The location is quite good. It's not in the centre of it all, however, it's not too far off either. It's on the west side, just east of the old city. Short cab ride to all the temples, or you can walk. Khao San Road is about 15 minutes or so. Beware though, the roads are a little confusing. Get a GOOD MAP that has detail on it. Many of the tourist maps skip a lot of little streets.
Overall, I highly suggest this place. It made my time in Bangkok truly memorable, and knowing that I was supporting Thai local people made me feel even better about this stay.
