    The staff is super friendly and allowed me to leave my luggage there in the morning even though I was not able to check in until later that afternoon. The rooms and bed areas were spacious and I really liked that the divider in between beds could partially open so you can chat with a friend if not traveling alone. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars for location is because you do have to walk about 10-15 minutes to get to the malls but that really wasn't a big deal. I had a great time and have already booked another stay there.

    My favourite place to stay in Bangkok”

    I think I was there during the low peak since they offered to switch me to the 6 bed dorm. It's also on a lower floor, so all the better. Previously, I always stayed in the 12 bed dorm but this time my booking was for the 10 bed dorm. However, the issue I had with the 6 bed dorm was that the sound insulation is really bad. You can hear every car passing on the road outside. I never had this problem in the 12 bed dorm. Next time, I'll definitely stick back to the 12 bed dorm!

    The location is great, direct bus/ train from both airports within short walking distance. Public transport within walking distance. Friendly staff, nice cafe and local food around, a big convenient store right next to it. The cubibles were spacious and very clean. Bathroom and toilets at every floor and were very clean too. Cons: the draw curtains at the end of the cubicle is very dusty, i stopped drawing it the first time after having runny nose and swelling eyes due to the dust

    Nice hostel with a good location within Pratunam, near convenience store and massage places. No lift though, so expect to climb stairs of up to 6 stories depending on which level you're allocated a room on. But staff were helpful and there was a pool table we could use, a common area we could chill at, which was nice. Rooms and toilets were kept clean and it was a comfortable stay. Would stay again if I'm there on a short trip (Ie. no big luggage lol)

    Good location for Pratunam Market”

    Walking distance to Pratunam Market. Basically if you can pay for taxi/tuk tuk all the time it’s ok. But to go to places by BTS you need to walk quite far to Ratchatewi Station or walk on the side of the train tracks to Phaya Thai Station. Wifi connection was great, linens are quite clean, they provide towels. Cleanliness is ok, dorms are clean everyday but some people leave their stuff/rubbish and still be there for few days. Shred bathrooms are clean but also people leave their toiletries around vanity/shower which annoy me. They should put a sign not to leave anything in the shared bathroom. Poor facilities as they do not have kitchen or they might have it on the top floor but it seems only housekeeping always be there doing some laundry and many dirty linens on the floor. Ig eill be good to have a place where you can sit and have a free coffee and tea all day.
