    fantastic location and vibe”

    Walking distance to Chinatown, Wat Pho/Grand Palace/Golden mount and Khaosan Rd Brilliant cafe for meeting others and great friendly staff

    Not the flashiest or most comfortable of places (the beds were a bit hard and wobbled when bunkmates moved), but Niras Bankoc has a unique, vintage vibe, friendly staff and by far the coolest little cafe that has decent coffee and is a great place for meeting, eating and drinking with fellow travellers from around the world.

    great hostel in Bangkok”

    lovely design, nice rooms, hot showers and great staff!

    Arrived at Niras straight off an overnight flight and it was a great hostel to begin a 6 week trip in. The hostel is a lovelt building and We opted for one of the double rooms with shared bathrooms. Slept very well and the showers were always hot! The staff were great in helping us with where to go, how to get there and tuk tuk prices making our 1st few days as easy as possible. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to other travellers.

    Clean, staff, character

    Staff at Niras are the best I've ever encountered. I've stayed here several times during my travels in Thailand (2012, 2014) and their advice and conversation alone is worth the stay. Great phad Thai place across the road, and the people who stay here are generally very nice and open. The hostel is clean and has great Thai character. Too bad there are so many British people though.

    Staff, price, design

    Niras has good design that vibes well with its "cultural" atmosphere. The staff is very helpful and speaks good English. The hostel has a vintage feel so expect creaking cabinets and doors. The only downside is breakfast not being free like most hostels.

    If you've got strong legs, this hostel is within walking distance from Khaosarn, Pahurat (Indian Town), and Yaworat (China Town). It's easy to access via boat (Pratunam to Phan Fah) and there are quite a few cheap, tasty restaurants on the same road.

    Cute hostel with good coffee ”

    Good location and really friendly staff

    The staff were definately the highlight of my stay here, they were very helpful and so nice. Close to Kho San Road (15 min walk) and short taxi ride away to other attractions. Good wifi. Comfy dorm rooms and big lockers. One annoying thing the top bunks are up way to high, also the top lockers are up to high to lift your bag into. not a big deal though. I ended up booking an awesome hotel room close to the airport on my last night for an early morning flight which was the same cost as the dorm room but my own massive room with air con etc etc. Great hostel though.

    Great value”

    price, staff, other guests

    i stayed here for four nights in june. i came to bangkok by myself and this hostel was a great place to meet other people. the first night i arrived the dormitory was fully booked (americans, kiwi, australians), but the other three nights there were just one/two other people in the room. i didn't try the food at the hostel, so i can't comment on it. the hostel is very clean; however, there is a bad smell coming from the pipes upstairs. also, i wasn't expecting there to only be cold showers. i wouldn't even call them lukewarm, so just be forewarned. the hostel is very close to the golden mount, so be sure to visit to get a 360-degree view of bangkok. the hotel staff were very friendly and had little printouts with the thai name and address of common places that tourists want to visit.

This is my first hostel experience and i enjoyed staying there. the location is good, walking distance to the Grand Plaze and Sleeping Budda, esay to get the food, and i usually take a taxi to the nearest BTS station by spending around 80B. Staffs there are very sweet and helpful and friendly, very informative as well,in general i will consider to stay there again if i travel back to BKK.

    Shower was phenomenal--maybe best I've ever had, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the lockers were large and secure

    Absolutely wonderful staff. Very clean and the location is nice. Far enough away from Khao San Road but still close enough to walk. Their cafe downstairs sells different coffees and teas from 50-65 baht depending on hot or iced. And breakfast is around 80 baht if I remember correctly. I was a solo traveler and found it fairly easy to meet people here. Not a party hostel though so if that's what you are looking for, look elsewhere.

    Super clean and the staff is the friendliest I've met during my 2 months in Thailand. The bathrooms are great and the coffeebar downstairs is really cozy. You can walk to all the downtown tourist attractions, the furthest one is about 25 minutes away. The only thing that I found a little annoying was the fact that a lot of people arrived at night and left the next day to catch their flight, but of course, this is not the fault of the hostel.
