    This hostel is new, very clean, well located, and has the most relaxed lady that is proud of the place and how clean it is! The hostel looks better than it looks on the photos and the showers are clean and modern, and so are the toilets! Even the cat smells nice 😊 if you're ever in the area, come show this place some love, they deserve it! Ah and the tvs are smart tvs that allow Netflix and Youtube to be played on them!

    Clean hostel in good location”

    I enjoyed my stay here. The hostel is very clean and looks brand new. It’s centrally located, just a few minutes walk to the main tourist strip of bars and restaurants in one direction, and a few minutes walk to Kanchanaburi train station, Death Railway Museum, and a night market in the other. I was the only one staying here at the time which I thought to be odd. Surprised not more people took interest in the place. Staff were extremely friendly, though they weren’t always there even during the day. Also there is no way to double lock the door from the inside. However, I felt pretty safe since you need a keycard to access 2 doors to get into the building. Communal bathroom was a little odd how it was just open to everything in the hallway, but it didn’t really bother me.

    Perfect location with new look hotel”

    Pros: The staff very helpful and can speak english very well. Perfect location, near train station, night market, and can take bus to erawan at bustop (not bus station) 3 mins walk. Please aware with tuk tuk that overcharge for 5 mins rides. Should be less than 40baht to location along the road. Housekeeping done every day. Because this hotel is mix with the hostel, you can use the public toilet, pantry, and living and dining area. Have mini fridge inside, hot water can take at dining area, tv with many channels, huge space, clean toilet with bidet. Cons: air-conditioning not working very well. Tooks hours to cold. Thin wall but im lucky not many people stay there. The bed not soft and make a sounds. The place very quite because nobody staying there and sometimes feel scary. Sorry to say, me and my mate feels the same, maybe there are ghost around. Sometimes feels uncomfort with unpleasant smells.

    Very clean, good for the price”

    It is close to the railway station but not the bus station. Cost 40 baht from the bus station here by motorcycle. The museum and cemetery is close by, which takes only 5 mins walk. Going to the Kwai River Bridge takes 30 mins walk and 10 mins by tuktuk (30 baht normally). If you want to go to Erawan and take a public bus, you can walk for 5 mins to a 7-11 and the bus would stop there (get a bus time table from the reception) but be prepared for no seats since you get on half way. The hostel is very clean. Beds are comfortable and room space is big. Hot water and AC are super especially in the hottest season in Thailand. The night market and mini-Khaosan road are close too, with 5-10 mins walk. A lot of restaurants around thus very convenient. Highly recommended for everyone that wants to visit Kanchanaburi!

    Homie and accessible ”

    When we are looking for a place to stay, we considered somewhere close to the train station as we are thinking to take the traditional train from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi, however we ended taking the minibus in Mochit Van Terminal as it is more faster and comfortable way to travel. Luckily, when we get to Kanchanaburi Bus terminal this place is just about 8 minutes away. We like it a lot as the accomdation is clean, nice and cozy and the reception is very nice to us. Around the area you can rent a motorcycle, there’s a nearby coffee shop and thai restaurants that offers delicious food.

    It was a new hostel so everything is still newly clean, i had a great stay which the bed was comfy and the toilet was well tidy which i like very much. Location is near the train station and bus terminal which is good. The opposite shop to the hostel also do the bike rental and just outside the hostel there are a few laundry shop as well! Few mins away there is a convenient store as well and if you keep walking from the convenient store for like 10-15 mins there is a cafe called The Library which serves a decent dish for a very decent price as well. Overall i would recommend this hostel to anyone and would be back again myself if cross to come to Kanchaburi again for sure!
