I don't understand how you can leave in the reception one person with no english idea, and even worse, without any interest of hearing the problems of the people who can arrive later than 5pm to the hostel.
We arrived from a delayed flight in the Sunday, so the street was full of persons and was very hard for us finding the hostel because the taxi can't get into the street, once the hostel was reached by us, we realized we had not enough money for paying the hostel, and we needed 200 bath for paying all the booking, this is a real problem because looks they don't have any way for paying with card, or maybe the person who was in the reception don't know how to use it.
We tried to discuss with the person at the reception using signs with our hands, tried everything to communicate us with him, all was unsuccessfully, we only was trying to say to him "ok, it's very late (9 pm) we come from Cambodia, we're hungry and tired, please let us leave our backpacks in the reception just only the time for dining and find an ATM for getting the remaining cash for paying all the booking", but he never shown any attitude of be reasonable, he only wanted the money.
Suddenly we heard to one person in the hostel talking in spanish, we told to him our problem and he gave us the 200 bath, once the booking was paid, the person in the reception desk was able to leave us in our room.
We spend about 1 hour in do all the check in, and I must say about this incident is the most surrealistic thing I ever had, I still can't understand how one person with no interest of helping people, and null english skills can be seated on any reception desk.
Talking with more people in the hostel, looks like if you can't go to the hostel before 5pm, you will have problems with that guy.
But in fact, is not a problem about don't speaking english, is a problem about paying no attention and showing no intention to understand what you are trying to say.
Well located, in the heart of the old town, in the first alley of Rachtdamoen where the sunday night market is done.
You can go to everywhere just walking.
Rooms are nice and confortables.
