Have been travelling to Bangkok quite a bit of years and for the first few years, this would be the only place I ever stayed at. At the end of the day, it is a hostel...so please keep that in mind! Location is right next to patpong night markets and you can't really complain about what you get for what...

The location on TripAdvisor is currently incorrect. It is actually on Si Lom Rd, close to the Cloud 47 all the nighttime crazyness. While the location is great, the conditions in the hotel itself are rather poor. The place looks and feels dirty. The pictures they have on google maps are completely misleading. It is just ugly. But it was...

The place is near the Silom MRT which is good. The hostel is ok, if you are not a really picky traveler. Laundry was just 40฿, at least they have one, instead of looking for any laundry shop which is quite hard to find. Around the place, you can eat whatever you like. Lots of street food available, and are...

Great budget hostel, lovely lady that runs the place very helpful and friendly. Ideally located behind Silom road. I only used the room for around 5 hours whilst in BANGKOK as I had a few hours to kill before heading to the airport!

Cheap hostel in a great location in Silom and right next to the skytrain and lumphini park. It's a relaxed, quiet hostel close to everything you need. The woman who works there Pai is such a lovely person and makes you feel very welcome. Enjoyed my stay and would stay again.

At 4£ a night you can't complain. Great location next to loads of popular hostels and street food, and a few minutes to the sky train and lumphini park. Friendly staff, bit of a flight of stairs to walk up to the dorm. Perfect for one night on a budget, wouldn't stay here if it's super hot because they turn...

Stayed in the Siamese Twin room for 2 nights with a mate. The location of this hostel is very good with a skytrain station very close by and a lot of the major bus routes stop pretty much right outside. There is also a reasonable sized night market and food market within a couple of minutes walk. That's pretty much...

I stayed one night here, it's not a good experience because the floor was very very dirty, the room is full of litters, nobody did the cleaning during the 24 hours of my stay. Will not consider it in the future.

Lots of stairs, hot rooms, tired decor and a tad dirty. Its right on the edge of the Red Light district as well. But if you don't fancy staying in the backpackers area of city and want to be out on Silom Road - its not terrible. I stayed one night - i slept and moved on, probably the best...

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.

“Be aware that there are no elevators and there aren't many rooms. Depending on the type of room you pick you may need to carry your luggages up several flights of stairs. There is a washing machine and a dryer, first come first serve.”

“The dorm is OK for solo travelers on a tight budget but you must be fit to cllmb the flights of stairs since the dorm is located on the higer floors. if you are looking for some privacy and willling to pay more then choose the private rooms.”
