Nice enough hostel, only about 250 bht taxi ride from airport (inc premium), assuming the traffic isn't too bad. Also 1 min walk from sky train. Additionally only a 10 min walk to Eastern bus station for connections to Koh Chang and other destinations. The flipside of this - it's pretty far from the major sites. Even the taxi drivers were raising an eyebrow when I gave the hotel address. However, just ask to be taken to the nearest sky train station instead... it's much quicker anyway.
About the hostel... friendly communal areas, roof garden and mini garden area out front. A sociable place. People were singing and partying up on the roof garden until pretty late whilst I was there. Be warned: the private rooms are just underneath the roof garden, if you're a light sleeper. However, the place was pretty quiet by about 1 - 2am and the hostel's on a quiet street too, so lots of sleep still to be had.
The rooms were small, basic, clean. Although the bedding was pretty smelly, unfortunately. Free daily water, towels, toilet roll and soap come with the room. Free wifi is also meant to be available, although I couldn't get the room wifi signal. However, there's a general wifi account which worked fine in the ground floor communal area.
