About 100m away from main road where I could find street market on the side; 5-10mins walk from BTS, Platinum, MBK. They have pool if you like this 9 balls sport. The free breakfast is really nice - many options and...

Great hostel, very comfy and clean.It's next to wonderful night market and only 70 min walk to city center. Nearby train station from airport makes it awsome hostel to go after your arrival. You can check in at any time so it's a great choice for first hostel in Bangkok.
