One of the best hostels on my 3 month trip”

The Twins Hostel is what it sounds like, a hostel owned by two twins. Americans i think. The vibe is amazing, just what you want for a Hostel. Nice clean beds, fresh new showers, close to 7 eleven, like 800m to Khao san road wich makes it PERFECT. Not to far to walk home from and 0 noice from there. Also there’s a nice gym like 400m away wich was perfect since i train alot. Really can’t find one negative thing about it! Stayed for 2 days and met so many nice people! 10/10! Robin, Sweden.

The twins is in a great location, close to khaosan and a lovely neighborhood with restaurants and shops on our doorstep. It seems the place has lost its identity with its new owners. The 24 hour reception/check in is a myth, don’t bother arrive any time before 12 noon. Our locker had been tampered with, luckily we had a big enough thick lock on it or all our belongings would have been gone. The hostel doors are open all the time so who knows if it was somebody coming in from the street or not. Rooms were basic but clean, air con perfect so no complaints about the rooms. Basic breakfast (toast and coffee) Overall an alright stay for 2 nights but be careful about using the lockers Harry the potential new manager/owner is planning on revitalizing the place so we will be back sometime to visit :)

The bed is comfortable in size and softness, clean sheets and blankets, with curtains in lower bunks and most of all A/C is available anytime you want to use it. Food stalls are just outside the hostel and short distance to a convenience store. Also short walk to the main road and Khaosan road ( with shortcuts ). Cool place to stay with friendly staffs.

Great location, close to Khosan Road. Room and bathrooms clean and adequate. Overall premises could easily be cleaned up as sections appear rundown. Value for price paid good with a complimentary very basic breakfast of toast and coffee. Owner somewhat helpful but not seeking to ensure customer satisfaction. Employee "Pie" very friendly and helpful. Some attention to this hostel required before we would recommend to a friend.

Overall I did have a good stay. I don't know how other hostels look like in Bangkok, but I had a big problem with the cleanliness. Even after the cleaning lady had just been there the toilet was still so so dirty. The rooms and beds were totally fine. And it is great that they offer free drinking water and breakfast (toast, jam and tea) in the morning.

Pros: Not bad location, There are restuarants, 7-11 nearby New, firm, comfortable mattress, clean room Cons: Noisy aircondition Doors slam throughout the night Broken toilet seat moudy, worn and shabby shared shower room share 1 toilet & 1 bathroom ratio: at least 10 people we informed at the reception that we will leave early morning, when check out the next day at 6:30am, he wasn't ready and can't get to the office to give us a desposit back. He asked us to wait and went back to the dorm. After 20 mins wait, he still didn't return. We have to leave otherwise, we will miss our bus to Koh Samet. Call back the hostel, the number shows on agoda is no longer in used. Sent the email, it bounced back. There are many better hotel with a similar price around. I won't take my children there again and will not recommend this hostel to any family with children.

We felt unsafe”

We stayed two nights. First one ok. Second one during midnight there were some people arguing quite loud just outside our room about the price to pay for that room with some person from the hostel. After that, that new guests that arrived to the room by our side start making noises every hour, and around 3am the police (at least that was what they said) came and started saying to a person called Solosim (or similar) to go out, they were trying make him go out till 4.30am... We didnt know what to expect cause the entrance of the hostel remains always open ... So everybody can go in and out. The thing is that we didnt sleep at all and at reception nobody knew that the police came the night before or gave us any explanation. The place was very basic, ok for the price, but don't expect for any extra. The common restroom was not clean either.

The only plus is the location of the hostel. The room was smelly, window cover was all the time down as it did not work and room was smelly. The wall next to my bed was covered with some brown liquid.. There were real mushrooms growing in the toilet!! Almost no one in the reception and bar all day and evening. No replies on the email- We had booking for 2 people, confirmation was for 4 and it appeared to be for 1 only and had to pay extra. You can find better for this money

Never Stayed in a Place That Just Didn't Care About Their Guests”

Place was dirty. Had a single room. People were constantly trying to walk into it. Thankfully I had the lock on. Had an airport shuttle scheduled. Went downstairs and checked to see if it was there- it was not. Went back up stairs to grab my baggage. Van came and left. Staff didn't tell them I was upstairs or come to get me. Came back down and they shurgged and said it was gone. Super glad I paid 150 baht.

Give it a miss”

Used Agoda to make and pay for a booking for our family of 4 people for 1 night. We arrived late in the evening to be shown a single bed in a 4 bed dorm - the other 3 beds were occupied. Luckily a 3 bed room was available but we had to hand over cash for an extra 3 people. The place was very dirty - especially the bathroom. The hotel was “staffed” by two back packers working in a “volunteer “ capacity getting free accommodation for looking after the place. They were friendly enough but didn’t know much and could speak no Thai. Good location if you want to be around a lot of tourists but there are many hostels around the area which look like much better value.

The worst experience I had so far”

When we arrived after a long journey, we were told by the owner that the lady who normally does the check-ins "would arrive in 30 minutes". The owner was rather monosyllabic and not very friendly. When we went upstairs, we were greeted by a foul stench, coming from the bathroom. It was covered with a lot of mould. On our balcony we found a used and wet towel from the previous guest(s). The "check-in lady" knocked at our door at 11 pm and woke us up to ask if we were smoking (that was not the case). The owner seemed to care more about drinking beer with backpackers than running a decent hostel. We could not sleep during the night, because some of the guests were shouting at each other. Worst of all: we felt very unsafe during the night and we were afraid that someone would come into our rooms, because the lock was so flimsy. We only paid 9 euros per night for a stay, but it is not worth this low price. Do not go here, unless you want to have a really bad experience.
