This was one of those hostel experiences where you feel sad to leave. More than anything, it's only either lovely staff or fellow travellers that can bring about this feeling. Here, it was the manager, who was repeatedly so helpful, friendly and accommodating, as well as having great knowledge for a traveller, be it regarding the immediate surrounds or another... More

Such a cute hostel! Everything was clean and it felt more like a hotel! We stayed in the private double which had an ensuite shower. The owner was very pleasant and gave us little tips on taxi and tuk tuk fares. You do have to take off your shoes to go upstairs but a shelf is provided or you can... More

Staying here right now. Super accommodating. Flight was in very late but the owner woke up and met us and set us up with our room. Clean rooms, clean bathrooms, affordable price and friendly guests :) close to the night market. Not as close to khao San road but cabs are cheap enough that it won't break the bank

Stayed at this hostel in a deluxe double room with wife for 3N4D and did not regret my decision. The place is situated in a quiet back alley and had sound sleep during all the stay. It is also centrally located with 5-10 min walk to Sala Daeng BTS, Silom MRT and to other facilities like Super Rich 1965 exchange.... More

Everything I read about this place is true. The hostel is extremely quiet and relaxing which is exactly what you want in a foreign country and after a day/ night of traipsing round the city. The owners/ workers are so friendly and go out of their way to help you with any queries you have. This includes routes to tourist... More

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
