Once again we were reasonably happy with the Buddy Lodge hotel (3rd floor). The location is great and we accept the minor noise issues for the convenience of having everything in Khaosan Road on our doorstep. Hotel is very clean throughout and check in at reception is 1st class. The bathrooms are still looking very tired and the maintenance seems...

Booked this place on Khaosan road. To be expected it's noisy only till 3 or 4 am. Then it starts to quiet down. The place is dated but well maintained. Staff are helpful and the pool is a treat to cool down in. The deck and lounge pads get foot burning hot! AC worked well in the room so did...

Not one for backpacking I was nervous about this trip but Buddy Lodge was our first stop and such a pleasant surprise. Great service and English speakers on check in, lovely room right on the Khao San Road but you couldn't even hear the music from our room. Also very clean and nice bathroom. Lush pool on the roof too...

The room was a good size and in a great location on Khaosan Road. We got a taxi from the airport to Buddy Lodge and due to Khaosan Road being pedestrian only we had to carry all our luggage down the street that was bustling with tourist. I would advise you to get a taxi to the burger king end...

Lovely hostel located towards one end of Khoa San Road. Lovely room with four poster bed, air conditined and balcony, although our balcony overlooked a neighbours house. Our room was cleaned and toiletries replenished everyday during our stay. Beautiful roof top pool with a bar. Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. With our booking we received a...

Ok, so the hotel itself isn't vegan but for vegans wanting something close to the FOUR vegan/vegetarian restaurants within a few minutes' walk, this place is great! Stayed here for five nights April 2017 with two young children. They loved it. The pool was lovely - clean and a decent temperature for my little ones. My main gripe here would...

We ended up staying here twice at the beginning and end of our Thailand trip. It is safe, the beds are awesome, and the rooms are lovely. I have seen plenty of complaints about the property being loud....and it is. It is on Kaosan Road. Don't stay here if noise bothers you is the bottom line. For us, being jet...

We stayed 3 nights whilst in Bangkok. Staff were friendly and helpful and we were quiet impressed with our room considering we were expecting it to be quit budget friendly. Amenities worked well and despite pre opus reviews complaining of noise we did not hear anything whilst sleeping.

The room was nice but I think you can get a lot better value for money! Good size room and clean also! Well located on khaosan Rd if you want to be close to the action! A little more searching and you will find better priced places

I'm mid 20s and was fine with the music and noise where the hotel was. Was first assigned a room that had small cockroaches in the bathroom. They switched us to another room promptly. I was ok with everything. They did charge me for a towel that we got dirty....lame. Towels are meant to get dirty.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
