“My headquarters in east Asia !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

That place is not a simple cheap accommodation. It's also the best place in Bangkok to make good friends. It's more about a mix between an art galerie, a live music place, and a new home. If you need anything, ask Charlie. He can help you and he's the saint of the travellers.

Thank you Charlie ;)

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

I stayed here five seperate times during my three month jaunt in SE Asia and it truly was a home from home. Charlee is a lovely man his hostel is totally unique in BKK and there is always interesting characters kicking about, travelling and local. The street food in the surrounding area is outstanding and Charlee will help you find something to suit your tastes. No Internet in the hostel but there is a hotel five minutes along the road that has decent service. It's only twenty minutes in a taxi to Khoh San road and it really is nice to escape to this little oasis of calm in the insanity that is Bangkok. You just can't argue with great company, free laundry, coffee, tea, water and lovely surroundings.

We didn´t think we were going to enjoy busy Bangkok, but this really is a retreat from it all. Its in a local Thai neighbourhood where everyone will make you feel at home. Charlee, the owner, will do all he can to help you and make your stay is enjoyable. He even helped us getting clothes made and having hair cuts etc. for a ´local´ price :-) His friends Bouk and Kee cook really lovely food just around the corner - I miss it already and can´t wait to go back!

The rooms are a bit dated, but are clean and comfortable with fans. The prices are really good value for Bangkok too.

Thanks Charlee and friends for an unforgettable stay x

This place is one of Bangkok's best kept secrets. A lovely refuge from the chaos of the city. Nestled in the heart of one of the last traditional neighborhoods it is a short walk to the Skytrain. We have stayed many times and it is always like returning home. The Artist's place is one of a kind, warm, quirky and refreshingly off the usual tourist track. The soi (streets) are very safe with mostly pedestrian traffic and the food vendors great. I recommend this to anyone visiting Bangkok.

we met a guy in cambodia who told us it was the best place in bangkok, he was right. The artists place is by far the most welcoming place we have stayed on all our travels. it was as if we had lived on the street for 10 years. not only charlee and sook lady but the whole street is amazing. its the perfect place to stay in bangkok, its so close to a skytrain stop that you can see anything in bangkok then retreat to this idyll that feels as far from the hustle and bustle as you can be. compared to anything else we looked at it was really cheap and because its in a little local neighbourhood everything around is really cheap. Charlee is the nicest gfuy you could meet and helpfull with everything. he took me to a place to get a suit made, translated for me and i eneded up with an amazing suit. on top of everything he got up at 5 in the morning to see us off when we left. i came to bangkok planning to hate it and absolutley loved it. i will definately go back and will definately stay here. p.s if you want a khao san road style holiday dont come here. its better than that!
