I have been at the Blue Dog for 4nights with my friends while we were waiting the visa to move to Vietnam. The best hostel I've been so far travelling South East Asia: clean, tidy, cheap, staff absolutely nice, polite and professional. Very good and cheap breakfast. Cool atmosphere and music at night. I highly recommend the place!

I spent three nights at this guesthouse in my own little blue room. My room was small, 2x3m, but adequate and clean enough. You might be able to find better value for money if you sacrificed on location. Blue Dog has a bar downstairs which can be noisy until 12 or so, and a veranda upstairs where its nice to...

Dear Yasmin M, Thanks for your review. It is nice. However, during your stay we cared about you and all ears to get your request or anything we can do for you. A bar downstairs might be aloud but not too noisy especially the sound cannot reach the upstair. We keep the door close always and sound protection so it...

Been here almost a week. Room are good and affordable, staff super nice and always smiley! Space to chill upstairs and busy bar at nighttime. Do not let the music and the "club vibe" discourage you from staying here as the sound does not get upstairs at all. Also, hot showers and air con in all the rooms. What else?!...

I stayed in both the private room and the dorm room. The cool thing about this place is the laid back group of travellers and the laid back staff team. Food and drinks are reasonably priced. Molly did a great job welcoming me and my friend... Absolute backpacker vibes hostel

Great hostel to stay at. It has a really nice vibe to it, a comfy chilling area, where you can easily meet new people. It's close to the party area but still very quiet at nights.

Stayed here for one night as a stop through Cambodia to Vietnam and was generally just a bit strange. As others have said, the staff seem to get drunk together each night in the communal area and then sleep there so you either have to wake them up or be really quiet as you leave. Our room was right next...

The Blue Dog is a very nice party and relax hostel. Stuff is very friendly and welcome to all visitors. Place is central (near independence monument) and not far from the royal palace, riverside etc. Surrounding area is modern and western style with lots of restaurants. Laundry works pretty well and fast. Would visit it every time again.

Very good backpacker place. Dorms with or without AC, both surprisingly well isolated from the party sounds. Functionnal and quite clean, staff always helpful, and party downstairs if you feel like it. I would go back there without a second through.

Ten minutes' walk east and you'll find the Independence Monument, the Royal Palace and the riverside, head a kilometre south and you'll find the Genocide Museum and BKK market. For clean, affordable accommodation, we've 4 private rooms and 3 mixed and 1 female only dorms that back onto a common chill out area and balcony for a lazy afternoon.
