“Backbackers Paradise”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

The hotel has good AC in a place that you need it! Simple & inexpensive hotel. The place is basically clean, compact and pretty secure. It is located in the heart of backpackers life, KhoaSan Road. It can get noisy from the street fare, but not the hotels fault.

Basic but central hotel. The "early bird" deal worked out at a very reasonable price. Rooms small but clean and comfortable beds. Staff friendly and helpful and breakfast very good in pleasant area. Ideal location for busy Kao San Road area but quiet as just off the main road. Easy access to the river and main sights.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms were quiet.

Very basic very small (almost not enough space to put the backpacks on the floor and we had the 'big room') and the 'breakfast' is just jam and toast. It's ok for the first two nights in Bangkok. Staff is neither nice nor not nice, they just do their job. If you want to stay some more days in Bangkok better look for something else.

Upon booking, we did not get any confirmation if our booking was secured or not. I had to call them up and only then I got confirmation of my booking.

The room was very basic, but anyway I didn't expect too much due to the price. But at least it was clean enough. The AC though was so big for a room so small. It was very noisy. And on our 2nd night (we stayed for 3 nights), it began to leak at one spot. On the last night, it got worst!. I didn't complain since we were about to go home anyway.

Upon arrival, they asked for the payment for the rooms. After which we were told to follow one of the guys to our rooms. We were led out of the hotel, along the road and to anothe guesthouse which had rats running around not to mention a room which was far more basic than we had paid for. We complained and asked to be sent back to the original hotel, which we had booked. After much chatter in Thai from the receptionists, we were led back to the original hotel. The staff were rude and not helpful at all. Not a great start to our stay. The rooms, on the otherhand, were great for the price we paid, 700 per room. Aircon, hot shower, fridge, clean bed etc. I cannot complain about the room at all. Although, as we were on the ground floor, right next to the reception, the room was very noisy. However, based on the fact they tried to rip us off and also the sheer rudeness of the staff, I would never book this place again.
Other hotels such as D&D inn or Rikka Inn are not much more per night and are much better!

I don't know where to start. Upon arriving we were down graded to another room (and area) as they had over booked. We entered our new room and found a lot of cockroaches and other bugs, that got into all our luggage. The room was not clean (including stains on the sheets). The bug bites I received from this room were awful.
Along with these problems they also took over $300 from my credit card which I then had to have a lengthy conversation with the hotel to get back, although this issue was resolved it was still not a pleasant experience.
