“A Boutique Hostel!!?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2008

Refill Now! was a great find in Bangkok. Its not like any hostel I've ever been to. Firstly, yes- it is on the pricey side compared to other hostels in Bangkok, you are practically paying hotel rates in what is effectively a hostel but its so nice you end up not minding at all.

I wasn't sure what to expect from the place - its located out to the east of the city and the only way you can really get to and from the hostel from central Bangkok is using taxis or the ferries on the canals but that is cheap, quick and fun (if smelly). Located right in a real residential area its a great way to stay in Bangkok and a million miles away from the hordes of the Kao San Road.

Once you get there though, its worth the effort because the owner was the friendliest man in existence. He knew exactly who we were as we walked up the drive and helped us in with our little amount of luggage and always enjoyed a chat and did everything he could to help- like all the staff actually. Its very new, clean and shiny and has the feel of a boutique hotel, all chrome finishings, graphics and white surfaces etc.
Myself and my partner forked out a little extra for a private room which was lovely as two of the walls in the room were floor to ceiling windows looking out over the local roof tops, but even the "dorm" rooms are split up by white blinds making self contained "rooms" with 2 bunk beds a piece.
Food and drink was good (if a bit pricey for those used to street prices) and massages could also be booked and performed inhouse as well - most recommended!
We were only there for two days but would certainly recommend it, the owner even looked after our bags free of charge on our final day and let us back upstairs to wash and shower before arranging our taxi to the airport in the evening even though we'd "checked out" about 10 hours before.

Service was faultless, the place itself was fantastic- the only real drawback was the price - but it was a little something special after a long time on the (budget) road.
