“Great place”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

For those who wants to avoid the touristy areas this place would be ideal for you. It's close to the skytrain and the bus stations. We enjoyed exploring the area around the victory monument. Rooms and showers were clean. The man behind the desk was helpful ( the lady not so much). Breakfast was simple and it's free. Though I didn't enjoy getting bit like crazy by mosquitoes by internet room.

I really enjoyed my stay here. It was a friendly atmosphere. I liked there was a communal area so easy to meet people as well as the dorms. It was clean and the bathroom was new - hot running showers. This hostel inc towels, shampoo, shower gel, hair dryer, bed linen, breakfast, coffee throughout day, wifi though only one device at a time. It is close to the sky train so easy to get around, especially Siam. Would def recommend this hostel

This was my first "hostel" and it was literally amazing. Perfect location near Victory Monument so you can travel by van to tons of destinations. Right by the BTS sly train and some great malls. The staff was so sweet! They were very helpful and were pleasant in answering all of my questions. The breakfast is simple and good and the lobby has a community fridge for the guests as well as a tv and a cute lounge area to read. The rooms are gorgeous and kept very clean and you can do your laundry there instead of taking it to a laundramat. So happy I found this place!

Been to HI Mid Bangkok for couple of times and again I have a new booking. It is perfect. One of the things is location and I find it to be the best: few steps from Victory Monument, where you can catch a bus anywere. Local busses and minibusses to the islands. As well as there is a skytrain stop in Victory monument so it is easily reachable from the airport too. I very much like the surroundings of MID Bangkok. It is surrounded by the best shopping (cool and modern clothes with 100-200bath just across the street), lots of street food stalls, so the area is quite local. This would be an opposite of the horrible Khao San Road area.

Rooms are nice and clean, and you can isolate yourself with a curtains which is provided with each bed. The bathroom and the shower are also clean. There is always hot water and pressure. Breakfast is good with coffee, tea, juice, fresh milk, cereal, fruits, jam and white bread, also some cookies! The lobby is very cool and you can tell the building inside has been newly renovated. It has a modern Asian style mixed with concrete. Also, lots of travelling books (lonely planets, rough guides, city guides) provided in the upstairs lounge area.

They have dorms and private rooms. At least the private superior twin (1550bath) incl breakfast is a nice room! Havent stayed there yet but have seen it.

This is a nice wee hostel in Bangkok, very clean and welcoming. Easy to get to from the airport using the airport train and Skytrain. Nice wooden decor, decent sized rooms and bathrooms were good. Very nice outdoor common area on the top floor. I found the guy more helpful and friendly than the woman on reception. Breakfast was OK - lovely fresh fruit, tea or instant coffee and toast but I don't think there was any butter or spread so I never ate the toast. Feels a bit out of the way but the Skytrain stop is close. No real complaint with the hostel but when we return to Bangkok we'll probably stay somewhere a bit closer to the 'main attractions' just coz we like to walk around rather than have to catch public transport everywhere. Generally quiet because it's down an alleyway and off the main street but was kept awake from 3am one morning thanks to a dog outside howling non-stop. Very much doubt this is a regular occurrence though...

This hostel is close to Victory Monument where there are a lot of shopping malls etc, to get to the Grand Palace by taxi is around 300 baht if I remember correctly. Clean rooms, water available for purchase, and breakfast was included. Lots of young travelers, we had a private room and it was nice and quiet.

My girlfriend and myself stayed four nights at HI Mid between Christmas and New Year. Excellent base for exploring Bangkok.

Very clean, well decorated, nice lobby area, nice staff, quiet.

We stayed in a double and it was excellent.

Location: not in the middle of downtown, but next to Skytrain BTS. Tip: Take Sky Train to nearest river and take a river boat for 10 baht. Very convenient and nice experience.
