New Joe Guest House
Ranked #260 of 752 Bangkok B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 October 2012

Referred by other backpackers. Paid 300 baht for a huge king and ensuite. Not the cleanest of guest houses but staff are lovely and breakfast is not bad. They even had English breAkfast tea. Internet password changes multiple times during the day so check before you think you device is broken.
If you are into massages ect... There are some lovely clean ones less than 200mts down and between 220 baht for feet or 300 for oil.

Room Tip: I was traveling alone but met ppl quickly. Some female solo travellers might not like walking around...

430 baht for a twin room with air con so extremely cheap. Found new joe's to have a good atmosphere with friendly staff. Rooms of low quality, very basic. Also, I would question the security of doors to the room (very flimsy) so don't leave any valuables in there. The tourist info on site was very helpful and sorted our transport to Phuket the next day. Would say the location is pretty good if you're about partying, just of Khao San Road. If you're not however, don't stay here!

So first don't stay on Khao San Rd. unless you are all about partying and getting messed up with a thousand other people. One woman I dealt with while staying here was nice, other staff were very rude and acted as if getting off their backsides to help me get my key was such a bother (it was their policy to keep the keys to deter sex tourism, which some staff may infer that is the reason that you came to Bangkok like they did with me). Food was mediocre and the travel agency in the lobby of the guesthouse either doesn't know anything or are trying to scam you, but this is common in Bangkok so do your research. However, the rooms weren't terrible and you can walk to the Palace, Wat Pho, and other major attractions. Also, they had some of the cheaper prices in the area.

Stayed for just one night. You really don't get your money worth for the 550thb they ask for. Small, old and not very clean rooms. Really dirty corridors. Look elsewhere.

The location was geat, and it was cheap, but...

The room (stayed in 405) was really hot because it was a fan room for 400 baht, and there were so many ants that entered our bags and shoes that we had to disassemble them and turn the inside out.

The heat in the room was so uncomfortable, that it felt so good just sticking your head out the window or stepping out in the hallway.

I, my girlfriend and her brother booked by phone from Chang Rai two days before a triple room and arrived in BGK at 5am after a 16 hours bus ride. First it was very hard to find and when we did they said the check out was at 1pm so we would have to wait until there to have the room. They weren't very friendly but told us we could leave the bag and have a walk in Kao San rd to spend time.
At 1pm we came back and everything had changed. There was no room for us anymore, only a double with a spare bed. We went to check the room and there was practically no room for another bed (apart from having a lot of sand on the ground and a dirty toilet). Soon an old matt of 2 cm thick was taken from the ground on the corridor (god knows how long it was there for) and squeezed into the only empty meter in the room. Since we were already exhausted and we would leave 7am next day we decided to stay and when we went to check in the new surprise came: they charged one double room plus an extra bed, which was much more expensive than the triple room we booked.
I asked to talk to the manager and a very angry and rude girl came saying that if we didnt want then there was a lot of people who were waiting. And despite the coackroaches in the room in fact it was always full so I recommend for whoever goes to bangkok make a good research before falling into this kind of trap in New Joe Guesthouse and other dodgy places.

This was our first stop travelling, recommended by a friend. It was very close to backpacker central, (2 min walk) ko san road. It was relatively quiet compared to the main street. We had a room with fan and hot water. Water wasn't hot, but to be honest you don't need it anyway. There are free lockers for those staying there, but be sure to bring your own padlock. Very good value for money, if you are slumming it I would recommend.
