“Cheap, clean and just near of everything”
Reviewed 31 July 2011

If you go to Bangkok on a shoestring just stay in this place. Really good value for you money: cheap, clean rooms, friendly staff and the best thing, just close of everything (the pier is in front, there is a bus stop to get you almost everywhere if you are pissed off with tuk tuk and taxi drivers, and Kao San Road, one of the most famous address in Bkk). I stayed there several times... first when I got in Bkk in the beggining of May, than later after other trips till the end of July... Yes I drop my big backpack there just to travel with a small for short trip and you pay only 10 baht per day (it is safe!).

The well center, close by koa san Road, Merry V Guest house has been our place for many years. It is not a 4 or 5 stars hotel but a very clean family place. Sometime after 2 years without visiting the staff still recognize us. What a great Feeling! \We use the basic rooms, but there is more. The price is low and the food at the restaurant is excellent. You can find a computer service and a travel agency (not the best one). There is a lot of places to stay in Bangkok, but it is still our favorite...

New Merry V is one of the cheaper options in the Khao San Road Area, we paid 290 bhat for a room with ensuite and fan. Whilst very basic and cubicle-esque, it was clean, and well located near the river-ferry stop and close walk to Khao-San action. It was quiet most of the time, although of the 7 nights we stayed there was loud music until midnight two nights but this didn't bother us as Bangkok is a late night, late morning start kind of place. For somewhere cheap but liveable, I recommend it.

Stayed in Merry V because of the raving reviews and everything seems perfect.

It's a bland and simple room, but perfectly clean and aircon rooms also have a fan (if you put on both on low you get a perfect temperature for sleeping). The beds are linen and are actually able to breathe so you'll sleep like a baby.

Service is decent (They're playing Farmville but they'll stop for you). No free wifi. But for students this is the very best value in Bangkok. Don't forget to get some streetfood from in front of the hostel.

We stayed at New Merry House in a double room for 290 Bath/night. Of course, for that price the room was very small, without other facilities such as aircon, tv or hot water, but it worked fine for saving some money at the end of our trip. It's a clean and quiet place but next time we would rather stay at a more expensive room.

My husband and I booked into Merry V when the usual place we go to next door (Green House, also good but more expensive) was full. We were just looking for something as low cost as possible, we're only in the room for sleeping so we don't need TVs and all mod cons!

For 200 baht we got a double room (2 single beds) with a good working roof fan, and a shared bathroom. The room was clean, very basic, but what you'd expect for something so cheap, just the beds, the fan, and a window looking out onto a corridor with a mozzie screen and curtain. For 200 baht this was great for us - we look to spend less on rooms and more on food and trips!

There were 3/4 toilets on our floor, plus 2 shower rooms, which were in good order and were cleaned regularly.

The reception staff were nice, and there's a little eating area downstairs that serves breakfasts. There's also a luggage storage area we used once checked out, to keep our bags in til the end of the day - there was no real checking in system for the luggage, it just got put into a back room with other luggage, but our bags were returned fully intact and we had no problems in general.

Overall, this place was a very good, clean basic guest house that we'll definitely use again. It has everything we need at a very low price, plus it's in a great location on Soi Rambuttri, near to the action but far enough away (5-10 mins) from the loud horrors of Khao San Road.

Backpacker guesthouse, pay each day as it comes and it's clean without fuss. It is also in a great location. For the price it is good. No lift so try to keep on a lower floor. There is no safe or fridge but the aircon works and the place is immaculately clean.

Good coffee shop with excellent food in the foyer, Rickys coffee shop.
