If you are lucky, you got a non-noisy room and then you can have a good sleep...If you got a noisy one, good luck!
Room : not beautiful but clean enough. Hot shower.
Staff : not good, not bad...they just don't care
Important thing : check-in at 4.30 AM !

We arrived at 10.30pm with no reservation and they were very accommodating. Free wifi was good, worked in the restaurant and in the bedrooms.

Staff not overly friendly, but were not rude.

On a second trip to Bangkok after an overnight bus from Chaing Mai and needed a room for the day to freshen up before another overnight journey. They were more than happy to let 4 of us stay in a double room for the day.

Overall very good hostel/inn.

My friend and I moved to this hostel as it was 300baht cheaper than our previous hotel and had wifi and hot showers and was more central. If you are looking for luxury, don't stay here. Rooms are very basic, but perfect for backpackers. Hot showers are great, everything's clean, beds hard but all are in Thailand. Staff aren't the most friendly but we only slept there. Great value for money if you are travelling and want somewhere central to stay. It's situated on the road right next to koh San and is buzzing and lively.

Check into this "hotel" Staff wern'y very nice, you had to put a deposit down for your key and towel? haha anyways. We were shown to the room. Being on a budget it looked ok. We opened the bathroom door and the place stunk unbeleivably. We asked them to come clean it and they did and smell went away for about 3 hours. The elvator is broken, wouldnt go in it anyway it looks ancient and run down. The first night there i slep on a rubber mattress. was eaten alive by bed bugs which in turn only really made me itchy but wasn't nice. The people staying at the hotel were nice and often a good place to drink out the front of and have a talk. The food was disgusting and unbearable to eat. they even got a phad thai wrong.

My advice, go to green room down the road. Same sort of cheap living, same price and it's a bit cleaner and restaurant is nicer.

Room Tip: dont choose a room at all, go to green room down the road.

I used to go to Star Dome Inn since 2007 because of the great location, the dirty cheap price and the bright clean rooms facing the Soi Rambuttri street. But over the years, I noticed that nothing was maintained, the bathrooms were getting "black" dirty and the showers broken, the mattresses not renewed. The breakfast waiters (I should say waitresses as they are two shemales) were unfriendly and hardly talking, and the breakfast nothing fancy, but that was easy to have it there.
The last night I spent at the Star Dome Inn, there were some drunken ones shouting in the hall. I can sleep well with loud music, but not with stupid guys banging on doors and screaming. No one came to kick them out.
I changed to another hotel on Soi rambuttri and will not go anymore to the Star Dome Inn.

After traveling India and south east Asia, this is definitely the worst place I have stayed. After arriving on the bus from Siem Reap late in the evening and trying to stick to budget, we decided to stay here out of desperation.

First of all the staff here are so unfriendly and won't do anything to help you not to mind actually look at you. They were the rudest people that I have met so far and are not interested in providing any form of customer service. Maybe it's because the area is so packed with tourists I don't know but they were truly awful.

The room itself was really dirty. There were stains everywhere, on the floors, the walls, the ceiling, the sheets, the bathroom, the toilet and cigarette burns on all the furniture. The towels they gave us were filthy and I asked them for clean ones which they gave us. Our room had a fan, AC and a tv but unlike some of the other rooms we actually couldn't hear any of the noise from the street. The bathroom stank! They must have problems with the drains because it was horrible. We have bed bugs sheets with us so we put them on the bed. I slept in my own sleeping bag but my boyfriend still managed to get bed bugs after staying here.

The wifi does not work..at all! They tell you it works downstairs in the lobby but it doesn't. There is a computer with internet access downstairs that customers aren't allowed to use. When we were checking out the next day we asked if we could leave our bags with them for the day and they will let you but you have to pay 40 bhat per bag. Would never stay here and would not recommend it to anyone!

Good points: good hot showers and good location
