Bkk or Phuket for a week?

Hey guys, heading over to Thailand for a week next month and tossing up between Phuket or Bangkok. Not really interested in the beaches/sight seeing but love to do some urban exploring/try out the food and the nightlife.

Travelling alone and it's my first time so somewhere with other tourists to mingle and try grab ideas from of what to do would be great.

Would need accommodation too, any clean air conned hostels with a mostly younger touristy crowd you could recommend?

Cheers!

"Not really interested in the beaches/sight seeing but love to do some urban exploring/try out the food and the nightlife." - then obviously Bangkok would be the place to head if you are not interested in beaches. Plenty of sociable hostels around Khao San Road and surrounds. New Siam II, just around the corner from Khao San Road is clean and cheap.
