The Old Charm Hostel is definitely an unexpected place to stay in Bangkok. You could not expect such a refined hostel right in the centre (5 min from MRT). I stayed in the Budha room, the room is simply perfect. The noice issue has already been discussed in previous reviews. I guess it all depends on what you're looking for....

The advantages in terms of ambiance, helpfulness, friendliness, interior design and location were well covered by the other reviews and we very much appreciated them. A few things to add... The beautiful remodeling details like glass sinks, tile work, etc. The glass-fronted rooms with excellent blackout curtains and clean design. Even a 4x more expensive room would seem grim by...

We stayed in the Old Charm for a week in June and early July in the "by the pond" rooms. The room itself is minimal but has everything you need, great to come back to after a full day out. The bathrooms that are shared are clean and empty most of the time so it still feels pretty private. There...
