Hi. I'm hoping to find a good, clean, inexpensive, and friendly guesthouse near the train station in Bangkok. I've heard good things about the Train Inn, and any feedback on that one, or suggestions of another would be great. Thanks!

Stayed at the Train Inn last year. Quiet and clean. And is literally beside the train station. Careful of those who approach you from the train station and tell you there are no more train tickets left and want to sell you a bus ticket. Put your hand over your wallet and tell them to get lost. Also don't let them accompany you to the train ticket window as they seem to work with the ticket sellers (think they give them a kickback if they tell you no tickets available)...

Do you only intend to stay in that guest house for one night and then use the train early the next morning or do you intend to use that hotel for several nights?
If you are planning on seeing things in Bangkok and using that hotel for a base then you might be better off in a different section of town!
A hotel in Siam, Sukhumvit or the Pratunam area may put you in a better position to walk to many places instead of paying for a meter taxi to get everywhere.
(For taxis - only pay the meter charge anyway, don't bargain the fare, taxis are usually cheaper than tuk-tuks for tourists.)
You can get to the train station from many places in the city, especially if you are near a subway station. The subway has a stop for the train station.
