It is quite conveniently located in the old town area. The staff here are extremely helpful. They give you printed maps and bus routes at the counter, which was very useful. They also have a guide for Bangkok in the library - a small printed copy. Reading it can be quite rewarding. The accommodation is very basic and the room... More

I like the place. It's peaceful and quite. A good value for money. The owner gave me a map since I was always asking about taxi fares and so on..He advised me to take a walk, ride the ferry...how to get here and there. I was so glad I did! :-)

This hostel is a nice place to stay if you want something little less crazy in bangkok. There is a nice street market just behind the hostel where you can get some food. The rooms were nice and the staff very friendly. However, most attractions/sights and bars are a bit further away so you need to get a tuk tuk... More

HI Bangkok is a gem of a place. The concierge will bend over backwards to help you with tourist information. I have stayed in hostels that seem a bit like a cash cow, but HI Bangkok certainly feels like it has a personal service. The rooms are scruffy, but they are clean, comfortable and air conditioned. The location is excellent... More

It is a bit difficult to find this place especially if you are coming from Suvarnabhumi airport. Take the airport rail link (city link) til Phaya Thai station and then get a local metered taxi.

Stayed here our first couple of days in Bangkok. It's a quiet hostel 20min from khao san road. It can be a bit difficult to find but it's certainly worth the trouble.

Staying in Dusit

Neighbourhood Profile
Dusit
When wandering around the Dusit Palace grounds, you'd almost forget you're still in a Southeast-Asian city. The Renaissance-style buildings and leafy gardens wouldn't be out of place in an European capital, and the serenity here is in stark contrast with the chaotic city life outside of its complex walls. Dusit is one of Bangkok's oldest districts, and while the rest of Bangkok is modernising at a rapid pace, Dusit seems to have stood the test of time. Come here to find family businesses in traditional shophouses, small-scale local markets and streets unfazed by modern city life.

“1. If you want to treat yourself to a nice view, ask if room 441 is available. 2. They wash clothes on the top of the building around midday. If you are standing anywhere on the west side of it (including on the balcony) be prepared to get wet as the water runs off the roof. This is also something to be aware of if you have clothes hanging out there to dry.”
