There are few places where I can call "chill" and this was one of them. It was really cheap (maybe not that clean). It was fun. You get to meet alot of people. It is not overly touristy but not so far out from the action either. A perfect blend. Plus you get to enjoy a 24 hour open bar...

My 1 night at the Overstay will stay with me forever, in all the wrong ways. Where do I even begin. Cockroaches EVERYWHERE. If you're lucky they'll just be ones that someone has trodden on and are stuck to the floor. I love animals but the cats stink and are covered in fleas. The toilets/bathrooms - simply disgusting. The rooms...

This place is a disgusting dirty dump. Dirt everywhere. Garbage everywhere. No toilet paper. No soap. Yes there is a kitchen, but it is so gross I wouldn't cook in there. There aren't any dishes to use, anyways. The beds are horribly uncomfortable. Sheets have huge rips in them. Blankets are never washed (we observed the maid to confirm this)....

Hey Erin, first of all we are sorry that you had as it seems such a terrible time with us. But we will take our time to respond to your points and subjects. I wonder really about many points you have, because we had a couple of chats while your time at The Overstay and you or your partner never...

I first got here and was only supposed to stay 3 nights, 3 weeks later i finally left just to return 2 weeks later. With the people who stay here and the guys that run it, it becomes very hard to leave as it becomes your new home. The staff are happy to help you out with what ever it...

Lovely place, really chilled out and great people to talk to.

Clean, safe and great vibe- will always come back! #keeptheoverstayalive ❤️❤️❤️

This is the third or fourth time I've stayed here, of course I always overstayed the time I've planned to stay here. Flo and yuval are the coolest people ever and always make me feel welcome, and get me very very drunk. If you're looking for 5* luxury this isn't the place for you, this is one of the cheapest...

The rooms are cheap, and the people who run this place are lovely. There is often live music in the main floors bar but if it's too loud but you'd still like to hang out, the rooftop is wonderful and more quiet. A cat lovers delight! Also available laundry is very useful.

Great hostel, it you're looking for a cheap place to stay for night, this is your choice. A piece of european culture in Thailand, amazing place, lovely people, reasonable prices and bunch of cheap Thai food paces.

Only stayed one night as we missed our train but so happy we did! The staff were incredibly friendly and looked after us throughout our stay, even when we were leaving they helped us out. The rooms were pretty basic but for £6 a night it had everything we needed. Everywhere you look there is beautiful artwork and the night...

Lovely staff, lovely people, lovely music... maybe not one of the cleanest but definitely one of the best places to stay in Bangkok! Stayed her one week and it was worth it ! If you want to have a good time book it!
