Awesome.
Having visited here for three times in four years, things changed as times fly. place became more modernized, as I heard from staff that they changed management group. Almost whole things have changed but I wonder they still offer same price. for me place is best deal available in very heart of Bangkok, and there's a skytrain just beside.

New!
Beautiful renovation mostly in Black and White under the new management. The hostel is much better than my last time here during 2007. The new staff are also very lovely and helpful. I really like the "Self Check-in system" and the most important thing is the cheap price.

Nice little hostel
Small hostel in downtown bangkok, very near to the skytrain station "Chong nonsi" with a short walk to the Patpong night market. The ITF food market is just opposite, The free city tour is nice but a bit too short. The free Wi-Fi is a bit slow sometimes. The Air-cond in my room was a bit too cold but it's ok for me. I'll be back again in mid 2009.

Newly renovated with the best staff!
Newly renovated, everything is new. Excellent location next to the Metro station and just behind the local food park. The staff are very nice and helpful, they always say hello, and always give you a smile. The room is a bit small but very clean and new. Free Wi-Fi is great!

Don't ever go here!
This "hostel" stole my guidebook and 800 baht from me. The owner refused he was the owner and said there was no such thing when the girl at the counter previously said he was. They also allow prostitutes and charge 250baht for guests to take them into their room when they are not allowed to do that as a hostel. This place is small, overpriced, and the owner despicable.

  Second worst hostel so far in all of southeast Asia. the staff did not answer any questions about Bangkok and the laundry service ruined one of my shirts. it's overpriced for what you get and the beds are extremely small. the one good thing is it didn't have bed bugs and is close to the night market and ping pong shows. nice staff but clueless and they keep trying to sell overpriced packages.

  It's not worth to stay there. it's overrated, smelly, and the rooms are small, especially the bathroom. just about one square meter, it's not the same as the photos it displays. you can't evaluate it by the photos.

  Expensive, overrated, and smelly! if you are going to stay here, don't. it's over-priced for hostel in thailand -- six-bed dorm costing Bhat260, you can get your own room in khao san road. i made the mistake in coming there and was shocked to see the six-bed dorm small, cramped, and smelly. so i asked for my own room for 650bhat, i could jolly well stay in a cheap silom hotel at that price. besides everything in my private room is crap. the room is tiny so i will hit something when i turn, the tv is spoilt, no attached bathroom! that reminds me that the private room size is probably just as big as most hotel bathroom. the shared bathroom is terrible too. small and tiny. there's a queue during morning peak hours. this "youth" hostel charges everything exorbitantly. 2bhats per minute for internest access when most joint charges less than 1 bhat per minute. rip-off laundry fee at 200bhat. think i'm better off washing in the river. and the tours and luggage charges are in U.S. dollars. for goodness sake, this is thailand, not USA. location-wise, it's not fanstastic as it claims. unless you are into patpong sex scene, which anyway you can't bring your desires back to hostel. it's also far from most tourist attraction. alternative? if you want BTS access, there are plenty of hostel along Sukhumvit road. the best alternative is staying in one of those guesthouses at soi kasem san 1. near to MBK and forty metres away from National Stadium BTS station. it's in the middle of everywhere. Siam paragon and siam sqaure is walking distance. near to chinatown and all the wat's near khao san road. hope this helps and please don't make my mistake of going to YHA "hostel" thailand. maybe they should named YHA hotel prices but hostel crap.
