Affordable and close to Khao San May 04, 2012
I stayed in a twin room (for single use) for one night. The room was quite spacious but very basic. It had two single beds, a little table and two chairs. But it was clean so I quite liked it.

The bathroom was on the corridor and shared with the others. It wasn't anything special but usable.

There is a nice garden with deckchairs, perfect for relaxing on a sunny day - you'll forget you're in the middle of a huge city.

The staff were really friendly and helpful, answered all my questions and their advice was really useful.

The location is good, Khao San is just 10-15mins away by walking.

I wanted to stay at this hotel again on my next visit but I didn't book in advance and when I checked the day before it was fully booked so I had to stay at a different place. But I can definitely recommend Penpark Place as a nice place to stay in Bangkok.

This place seemed nice enough and was in a decent location. It's close enough to Koh San Road that it's just a short walk but still far enough away that it's not too loud at night.

The staff was friendly and helpful and there is a travel agent on site so we were able to purchase our train tickets there. However, we did (naively) decide to go on a "tour" that we also purchased through them and we were taken to the dreaded jewelry shop on the way back. Also, towels were provided in the room but were swarming with ants. Still, out of the three hostels we stayed in in Bangkok, this was the nicest one.

A little Gem, for the budget minded!! Jun 22, 2011
Penpark Place is a little hotel about 10-15 minute walk outside of Koh San Rd, just far enough away to get a decent nights sleep!!

It has a court yard type area, where they serve food and drink, although i never ate here, it was a great place to be later in the evening to sit and have a beer with other travellers...( they had a 24 hour, help yourself beer fridge..always a bonus :-).

The single room was basic, but clean with aircon....all this for a fiver a night. excellent value for money!!!
Great view from the hotel roof ter…

NIce room, not as quiet as you'd think for being 15 minutes from KSR Dec 09, 2011
Penpark place featured friendly & helpful staff that were pleasant any time of day or night. I booked my "ensuite" room using the form on the website for the hotel, which was a simple process didn't require payment upfront. The room was spacious and had some nice touches like a small table for 2 to sit around and a drying rack for clothes. Also included were a/c and a private bathroom. The bathroom was clean and featured a nice amount of space and a shower curtain.

I had never been to BKK and didn't have a feel for location or distance of things. Penpark place ended up being a 15-20 minute walk to KSR longer at times due to traffic and other events nearby.

AS for the other guests it was a mix of people, but mostly age 30+ european travelers from what I observed.

I was only disappointed in 2 things - the beds. They very hard and seemed to lack more than basic padding. I could feel the springs digging in to my back.

Noise: unfortunately there was major construction going on in the lot behind the property, from 8am-5pm sometimes starting earlier and ending later.

If you are a backpacker, the Penpark Place is a good place to stay in Bangkok, Thailand.  This hotel is affordable, clean and very accessible to the tourist spots by foot. 

The rooms are immaculately clean and air-conditioned.  The bathroom has water heater and towels are provided. For backpackers, this is already a good deal.

They also serve breakfast. A good thing to start another "walking" day. A hearty breakfast to fuel us for another amazing morning.

Just a walk away from the backpacker mayhem of Khao San Jan 24, 2011
Just a walk away from Khao San Road, but far enough to avoid the hustle. Located at the end of a smallish alley, just two blocks away from the main road. All nearby houses are local residences and houses. The reception is open 24/7 and the staff speaks at least average english. Rooms were clean and tidy, air con worked without problems, and there was a small fridge in each room too.

Close to Kao San Rd Oct 26, 2010
This Hostel is pretty cheap, and optimally located if you're into the cheap and cheerful night scene. Walking distance from Kao San, and situated in the heart of Backpacker Bangkok, I would say its overall a good experience.

The internet usage is free, which is always a plus, and beer, water and Coke from the fridge is cheaper than most places. The private rooms are spacious and pretty good, but if it doesn't cut into the budget too badly, try to get Aircon!

Nice, friendly place, a great but unfortunately underrated roofterrace with an awsome view and a comfortable comunal area.
