    This place is shut down. Don't be fooled like a fool. Hostel bookers owe us 5 pound. We booked and paid and then got there to a padlocked shut down hostel. Terrible and scary! Don't book this hostel, don't book this don't think hostel.

    A friendly and well run hostel, ideally located and with all the required facilities for any traveller and visitor to Bangkok. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful, giving advice to newcomers to Bangkok and Thailand on the do's and don'ts, where to go and what to see. I visited Bangkok for a weekend on my own and...

    I have stayed here two times already, one of them being during crazy New Year's Eve in Bangkok. I definetely would recommend coming here, especially if you're a solo traveller. This is not a fancy building or a boutique hostel, but it has got you covered on everthing you need - and what really matters - good beds and blankets,...

    Soi 1 Guesthouse, Sukhumvit puts you right in the centre of the action in Bangkok and serves as a useful hub for young travellers entering or leaving Thailand for the first time. The owner Dave is Western, which helps settle you in, and is a goldmine of information about the local area but also gives handy tips about Thai culture...

    Pros: 1. Very well located, 2. Very helpful and knowledgeable owner, 3. Lots of notes to help you go around, 4. They arranged our bus to get to Siem Reap, which was comfortable. Cons: 1. Bed was uncomfortable, 2. AC barely worked. All in all, a mixed stay.

    After being let down by another hostel, this place came up as a perfect location for those who aren't tourists.. I needed to be amongst people that were treading the same path as me, and this place nailed it. On entering - because the owner is Australian - there are notes everywhere giving amazing tips and advice, not just for...

    After being diagnosed with Dengue fever from a recent trip to Cambodia, I decided to recover in Bangkok for 2 weeks. I did not hesitate to return to Soi 1 guesthouse where I had a pleasant stay before. Dengue is not contagious so I knew that I could recover in the dorm especially since I needed to take naps and...

    I think Explorer333 (below) has it nailed. I stayed in Khao San Road on my return to Bangkok and compared with the Sukhumvit area I was dissapointed. There is lots of action around this part of Bangkok, plenty of bars and restaurants and its right next to the Skytrain which is cheap as chips. Dave was a great host and...

    Staying in Sukhumvit

    Neighbourhood Profile
    Sukhumvit
    With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
