The guesthouse has surely seen better days and the room interior was not the best (we stayed in their City Delight room) bugs could be found in the bathroom but the fan was very much needed so if you're thinking about staying in one of their rooms that do not include a fan, I'd advise you to have water beside your bed and ready yourself for the heatwave that will strike you in the morning.
The location is somewhat shady and it was difficult for most tuk-tuk drivers to find their way to the hotel, even with the hotel map for guidance.
However, me and my friend stayed here for the duration of our time in Bangkok and we were definitely not disappointed. The staff was incredibly welcoming and the manager was very nice to us and helped us out with translations and questions we had about the city. For the average backpacker this is a great place to stay. It's close to the Golden Buddha temple and China town! Me and my friend enjoyed our stay here but it definitely is a backpack guesthouse or at least for people who are used to low-budget places.
