Need a backpackers hostel/hotel on Khaosan Road, Bangkok

Travel Forums Asia Need a backpackers hostel/hotel on Khaosan Road, Bangkok

1. Posted by Jono101 (Budding Member 5 posts) 9y

I am travelling to Thailand for a 2 week holiday before venturing to Australia, and my friends and I are looking for a first night stopover on Khaosan Road for 3 people. If anybody out there can help with some suggestions. I have read some reviews, but would like to see if anyone out there has any advice. We are looking for a budget to mid priced place, around 600 baht for a double, and if possible 900 baht for a triple (only seems Nana Plaza does triples).

Any help would be great.

Hi there, check out this web; http://www.hihostels.com/dba/list.php?lang=E

Those places are not bad but very good hospitality also, you can try elsewhere to stay in Bangkok nor Khaosan road.
Fify.

You can check out this link for the President Inn on Sukhumvit Soi 11/1:

You don't mention if this is 3 men or a couple and a "fifth wheel" who want to share a room. If I was in Bangkok and I was single I would certainly want my own private room!

Not far from the President Inn is the Business Inn with rates about the same (http://www.awgroup.com/hotel/hotel_index.htm.)

Just around the corner is the Suk 11 Hostel, they have various priced rooms in all sorts of configurations. (Web page: www.suk11.com or http://www.suk11.com/01_about_us_ourplace/about_us.html.)

Suk 11 has dorms and rooms with 3 beds. They require a reservation!

If you stay in the Sukhumvit area you can take advantage of the Skytrain service. No Skytrain service directly in the Khao San Road area.

I am traveling with 2 women. Not too fussed about having a private room really.

Those are all great suggestions, thanks guys.

I also stayed on Soi Rambuttri - I thought it was a cool little area. I stayed at 'My House' and 'Bella Bella', and both were fine.

Guess I wouldn't be looking for different place either, unless the "two women" were my grandmother and mother!

Good luck.

check out Baan Sabai, is on a paralell street from Kao San, more quiet, cheap and kind of OK, and if u dont like it, just besides it is a more upper standard one, but i liked baan sabai for its simpleness and easyness.
