This was our first time at Buddy Lodge Hotel & Khaosan Road - we'd been referred to Buddy Lodge by friends that had stayed there in their previous travels to Bangkok and we're glad we listened to them and stayed at Buddy Lodge. The staff were very friendly throughout our stay, our room was clean and had everything we needed (air-con, safe, fridge, spacious bed and enough room for us to have both our backpacks open and partly unpacked).
We arrived at Buddy Lodge at about 9am and we had originally planned to ask if we could leave our luggage there until we check-in time. To our surprise, they allowed us to check-in straight away. Our flight out was the following day at 8pm, so we asked for a late check-out time of 6pm, which the staff happily arranged for us for an extra charge - 1000 THB - we didn't see this as a problem considering we were checking out 6 hours later than normal check-out time.
Buddy Lodge is really well located on Khaosan Road - plenty of food and drinking options around. But if you're planning on going to MBK via tuktuk, be sure to allow yourself about 15-25 mins to get there - there can be a fair bit of traffic for your driver to battle.
Overall we enjoyed our stay at Buddy Lodge even though it was only for 1 night, but we both agree that we wouldn't stay anywhere else on our future trips to Bangkok.
