Being backpackers ourselves we understand the importance of a good bed and warm shower. Thats why all our dorm beds are slightly bigger than the standard size just to give our guests that good nights sleep they want. All our Dorms and Private Rooms also have Air-Con and an en-suite toilet with free use of hairdryers and straighteners.
You will see the Limousine (minibus) service desk located right next to the baggage claim area. Ask the girl at the desk to be dropped off at Bang Rak 7 Eleven next to the Krungthai Bank and she will take 70 Baht per person off of you. The journey time is approximately 10 minutes. Alternatively you can take a private taxi that should cost you 400 Baht. Then follow walking directions below from the Bangrak 7 Eleven.
By Ferry, Express Boat & Night Boat
