Nice Hostel!”

I love the fact that our room was clean and there were two bathrooms. Also, I noticed that they have a sitting area in every floor and a laundry area on the fifth floor. The staff, specially the old lady, were nice. Location is perfect as the hostel is accessible to everything you need in Khao San.

The other reviews on this hostel don't over react regarding the noise during the night”

Pros: Very clean, modern furniture, central location, perfect for party people Cons: basically a night club in your own room. You have to be a really deep sleeper to ignore the loud music and the vibrations caused by the bass until 3 in the morning

Good, but very loud.”

This resort is just off of Khaosan road, is in a good location, and is reasonably priced. The place is clean and the staff are friendly. Apart from the room being extra damp (even for BKK), the only issue is the noise from the nightclub adjacent to this building. If you're into listening to 30 second rotations of R&B and hip hop music with poorly added base until 3am, I suggest renting a room here.

My room is the family room. The room was fine but it the bedsheet wasnt really clean.”

The staffs are okay but not tht friendly, my room is on the 4th floor the stair area looks scary and u can see the where the worker stays. The interior of the hotel like the hallway, reception or lounge area are messy not properly maintained. However, the location is great, exactly on the khaosan road and the price is cheap.

Prison cell?”

This hostel was honestly disgraceful even by Khao San standards, and the only reason we stayed here is because we were getting picked up from there at 4.30am. Firstly, we were ‘greeted’ at reception by the least friendly woman I’ve met in Thailand - and I live here - even after addressing her in Thai. Secondly, we got the basic private room with twin beds. The smell of mold was so horrific when we opened the door that I don’t know how I slept at all. The room is tiny and windowless/claustrophobic, the mold in the bathroom is awful (see pics) and also full of cobwebs/dust, and the bed was of course rock hard. It also didn’t have a blanket, so I went to ask reception and was told one of the 2 towels on my bed WAS the blanket. It was only slightly bigger than the regular towel, and definitely didn’t keep you warm when you have the A/C on. Good location in between Khao San and Soi Rambuttri, but would literally never stay here again.

I was going for check in around 5pm and noone on the front desk which also locked. I was waiting for more than an hour and decide to come later for check-in. Room facility is OK. However looks lacks of maintainance. Sound of music around Khao San is loud but still acceptable.

Awesome Stay!!!”

Staying at pillow hostel was a last-minute decision and it was probably one of the best decisions we had ever made. We arrived very early at the airport and was tired, but we were able to check-in at a very flexible time. The staff were very friendly and the location is just perfect as it's pretty close to most tourist spots in Bangkok. Though it was close to Khao San road, we had a good sleep. Amenities were like that of a basic hostel, but who are we to complain. Overall I'd give it a 9 out of 10 (Cos nobody's perfect right?). Would definitely recommend this place to travellers, or groups like us. Really had an awesome time here, wish we could've stayed longer.

Great Location. Friendly Staff”

Right at the heart of Khaosan road for all the party seekers. The clubs, pubs, bars nearby makes it the ideal place to stay at Khaosan Road. The lady who seemed to be the owner was helpful beyond words. We were in a family room which is at the top most floor so the noise didn't bother us much from the club downstairs but if you were to be in a hostel in the lower storeys you might have to bear up the boom from the music. Ideal if you are planning to party until late night. All in all great place to stay and i would definitey stay here again.
