At Hua Lamphong Hostel
Ranked #133 of 1,304 Speciality Lodging in Bangkok
Reviewed 2 December 2013

A few steps to MRT Hua Lamphong and Hua Lamphong Railway Station, this is convenient for those travelling to Ayutthaya and nearby attractions. A bus stop is located at about 20 meters from the hotel, which stops by the Grand Palace and Khao San road (fare is only 8 baht).

The rooms are basic. Since I stayed in a 6-bed dorm type, I expected it to be just okay. The locker can fit a large backpack, but not a trolley. There are 2 shower rooms and 2 comfort rooms. I found that the CR of room 207 is not that clean :( The exhaust in the shower is also dusty. Regardless, there is hot shower, a comfortable bed, and wifi in your room. Of course, I got what I paid for, and it just fits my need. (a place to sleep and store baggage at that).

I loved this place and always came back to stay here whenever I was in Bangkok.

Pro's:

Reasonably priced
Friendly and helpful staff
Comfy rooms
Individual lockers in the rooms big enough for your backpack
Use of computers (at a charge)
Free wifi
Small common room
Rent a dvd from Reception if you're having a night in
Meet other travellers 18-30yrs
Very very close to station
English breakfast and tea (and of course other meals from the restaurant!) Reasonable prices

Cons

Not too close to the main areas e.g. Koh Sarn Road
Wifi doesn't always work in the room

I just liked the vibe in there as well as the french / country style interior design feel! :)

Stayed here for 2 nights and booked a standard single private ensuite. Room (305 is next to fire exit and also connecting to one of the dorms) was extremely hot. Windows cannot be open. You should keep aircon on at all times. However, be aware that when you sleep, cold air will blow directly onto your face and turning it off may not be an option for some as the room will become stuffy during the night. Wash basin only has one tap which gives lukewarm water. Thankfully this is Thailand and not UK! Sink plug doesn't work so washing clothes was a bit of a challenge. They offer laundry service but I only had a few small items so didn't use it. It would be helpful to have more hooks on the walls to hang clothes, wet towels etc. Drain pipe in the bathroom is slow and somewhat blocked, so be careful not to have a long shower. No or extremely weak WIFI inside the room so advise you to sit in the dining area on the ground floor. They have computers but you need to pay. Forget having a lie-in as the sound of cleaners and other guests walking pass at 0630 will wake you up. Hostel isn't as lively as I thought, but I used my own initiatives to make conversations with other guests.

Ending with a positive note. Good if you need to catch a train or bus from Hua Lamphong train station. There is 7-Seven (convenient shop) nearby and plenty of street food stalls. Hostel reception staff were helpful and even wrote down the airport name in Thai so that taxi driver knows my destination. That was definitely useful!

I only stayed for one night and given the price I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised however. The location is great, right outside the subway station and across the road from the train station. I had my own room with ensuite shower and toilet, tv, safe, air con and fridge. The bed was clean and comfy and they even provided a towel and washing lotions. Downstairs there is a cheap cafe which has everything from breakfast to currys. I had Thai red curry and chips and the quality was great. This place had everything I needed and was far better than the hotel next door. Don't be put off by the word 'hostel' and it was much more like a hotel. There is free wifi and computers to use and all the other residents were quiet and mature. I had a great night sleep and would really recommend.

Very clean place, fairly spacious rooms. Stayed in 4 different rooms coming and going out of Bangkok. Reservations made online and through the hotel were all honored. Easy metro access to/from airport and train station.
Check out the street vendor outside selling the banana crepe things - delicious.

Three of my friends and I stayed here when we visited Bangkok last May. We were in a 4-bed room - dorm style - and we had an ensuite bathroom that was really spacious! The room had the basic amenities and lockers. It IS a bit tiring to have to go up the stairs to the fourth storey where our room was (the lack of an elevator is a bit of a disadvantage), but otherwise it's bearable.

What I liked best about the hostel was its location, considering it was less than 100m away from the MRT, and the railway station was just across the road. Very easy and convenient to go around Bangkok!

Room Tip: If you've got heavy luggage, try to see if you can request for a room on one of the lower floors...

My newly wed wife and i found this place as somewhere to stay for two nights while we visited the vegetarian festival in China town. The hostel is about 15 to 20 minutes walk away and is very close to the train station.
The double room we stayed in had en suite shower, a tv and safe to guard your belongings while you are out and about. The staff were very friendly and helpful when we asked for directions to the festival.
The building itself is clean and there is a shared room which you can watch dvds for free in with other guests should you want to socialise a bit.
Recommended for people who want a good night's sleep at a good price.
