If you don't know where to go when first getting into Bangkok, then this is a good start. Located in the heart of the backpackers ghetto in Banglamphu on Koh Sahn Road, you'll get safe, decent rooms with a fantastic 5th-floor swimming pool. A warm shower is a luxury, but the beds were firm and everything else okay. And it's easy to reach from the airport, either by taxi (they all know this road) or airport bus. Taxi should be about 350 Baht including airport fee & tolls.

We stayed at Buddy Lodge for 4 nights at the beginning of our trip. The location and rooms were great. We arrived after midnight following a long flight. KSR was in full swing and I wondered if I'd made the right choice. We had two rooms near the back of the hotel and they were quiet and clean -- better than I had imagined. Our teenagers had an adjoining room. The small pool was a nice plus for an afternoon cool down. Despite all the negatives written about KSR, we enjoyed the atmosphere and availability of services, shopping, people watching, etc. Would be happy to stay there again in the future. Easy 15 min. walk to the Grand Palace and Wat Po.

We stayed here at the start and end of our Thailand trip, and looked forward to coming back for the last night of the holiday! It's in a great location on the Khao San Road - step out the door to find yourself surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants. Very easy to get around as there are always loads of taxis and tuk tuks waiting outside in the street. It's also really good value for the location. We were lucky and both stays had rooms towards the back of the hotel so they were quiet, away from the bustle of the street. And the roof top pool is a real bonus. Breakfast included and was fine. Staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms themselves were very clean, cool and relaxing. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend.

Very comfortable rooms, lovely pool, nice breakfast, good value for money. Stayed here once, would stay here again without a doubt.

The winning deal with this place is that it's in the middle of Khao San, which gives you either an insight in the backpacking centre of the universe or alternatively a blast from the past if you've spent time here before (only this time you can enjoy your hotel room). Of course many people love to hate Khao San, and it doesn't offer a lot of insight into the genuine Bangkok, but the place is a sight in itself. If it turns out you hate it you can just go back to your comforable room...
