Best of Bangkok”

Due to plans falling through elsewhere in Thailand we ended up in Bangkok much earlier than we planned and thankfully Foresttel was available for the days. The facilities are really nice and although you don't get a private bathroom, the shared bathrooms were clean and never occupied when we needed them. I loved the cafe downstairs and got a lot of work done. It's kinda outta the way of the spots most people go in Bangkok but if you don't mind walking like me a 30 minutes walk gets you most anywhere.

If you're into a nice quiet place for a backpacker to lay down and rest after a event-filled day in Bangkok, this place is a place to consider. Nice little abode with necessities. Would love it if it has a fridge, but there's a convenient store just around the corner so it's not that detrimental.

No private bathroom/toilet, even though Agoda photo of room detail shows a bathroom. They are misrepresenting the facilities, IMHO. They should state that there are shared bathroom facilities. Otherwise a good place for a short layover in a good part of Bangkok. Quiet at night. Get a good night's sleep.

Best Hostel I have stayed in”

staff, location, clean

I highly recommend this Hostel! When I stayed at the hostel I found out that the taxi cheated me out of 800 baht so the front desk person said he would make sure I would be in a taxi that would charge fair with a meter. When I checked in he made sure I had everything and gave me a bottle of water for my travels. Room was very clean and I felt safe in the hostel. Each room had a code combination so that only you and the other people staying in that dorm could come in and out. SHOWERS WERE CLEAN!!That is a huge thing when staying in a hostel. Highly recommend.

The staff are not that considerate to extend our check-out at 2 pm. We arrived at the hotel very late on day 1 so we thought we could check-out a little late because our trip is late evening. But overall, the place is spotless clean and comfy. We will book again.
