Got back late by bus from Chumphon and rather than risk cowboy taxis and tuk tuks which surrounded the arrival at the bus stop I decided to look for the nearest place which was the Hello hostel.amongst the grimy buildings
I paid 540 baht for a rear room (£12) with aircon and could have a second guest for an extra 200 baht but was solo The owner was asleep on the couch but awoke to take my money plus a 500 baht deposit for the key Room was basic and I changed the sheets from a pile on the stairway and grabbed a couple of towels The shower worked alright and there was nothing alive in the room. There was a mini fridge so that ws handy I had 2 excursions planned for the following days so left the bags there and enjoyed Bankok not for families or honeymooners.

Room Tip: Ask for a key and try to find the best. Room 33 is at the rear with a view of tenement roofs

The staff are a bit hit and miss some were friendly but others weren't. The dorm room was very very hot with very few fans. I've stayed in places for the same price on Khaosan Road that were much nicer, but I was trying to escape the craziness for a while which worked out okay. But the traffic is really noisy during the day when you're trying to sleep, if you're out and about that would not be an issue though.

Room Tip: Often there isn't anyone staying in the air conditioned dorm and its not locked, so you can just pay for non air con and sneak into the air con one to sleep in ;P

We arrived in the morning, at due to songkran we couldn't acces to the hotel we wanted in Kao san. So we stopped at Hello hostel! Mistake!! VERY bad welcome. My sister had a big, not so heavy just big, luggage and she asked if someone from the hotel could help her to to take it to the room(4th floor) they said NO, she even said she will pay for the service! NO and no was their answer. The had to beg a guy in the street to help her. Then arriving in the room, big , massive horror. The rooms( we had booked 2 rooms) were NOT clean. The sheets were dirty and not changed since the last occupant, with stains. I am not even talking about the shower. We had a quick look before we book but just a quick one, we should have had a better one to be honest. So the sheets were dirty, as was the shower. We called the maid to change the sheets, it was like we were asking for the moon!
We went out straight after for the festivities. When we came back at night we discovered that the rooms were FULL of coackraches. That was really too much, when we went down to ask for a cockraches spray they looked at us with disdain.
We decided to leave. As soon as we told them we were leaving they asked to empty the room IMMEDIATELY. Not in 5 min no , right now! So we packed and were outside with no idea were to go. When we asked the reception to call us a taxi, they just said they can't !
So NO CUSTOMER SERVICE, NO CLEAN!, NOTHING that will ever make us want to go back there...ever!
We went to Thaicozy guest house instead! So much more better, for the same price!

Room Tip: Don't go there!

Hello Hostel is a decent choice for a few nights in Bangkok. I paid $10/night for a bed in an 8-bed dorm w/ AC and found it to be pretty clean. The front desk staff is very unhelpful, and may even ignore you all together upon arrival. However, the location makes up for the inconvenience, as you're just blocks away from the action on Khao San, but the hostel itself is quiet.

Just FYI, I had my laundry done through the front desk and it came back sans a pair of Nike socks and belt. The staff tracked both down within a day, but only after I realized what was missing and made a bit of a stink. Be sure to check that you get everything back if you go this route.

Room Tip: They have individual rooms on the upper floors for approx. $25/night

Not too shabby, to be honest. The staff wasn't overly nice or helpful but the dorm was very clean. Just far enough away from Kao San Road that the music doesn't keep you awake, but close enough to walk to without losing your breath. Each bed had its own light and outlet and there's a reasonably priced internet cafe in the lobby. Now the best part, the hostel provides toilet paper in the bathrooms (woah). It will only take 200Baht (about $6.50) out of your pocket but just a warning, there is also a 200B deposit so make sure to have that withyou upon booking!
Would stay again. Compared to Rainbow hostel down the road, where I stayed the first two nights (and wish I hadn't) Hello hostel goes above and beyond.
