I will arrive in Bangkok on Jan 20th, and am looking for a good area to stay in for the first 3ish nights of my month long trip.. Anyone know of any good areas or hostels worth making it to?

Sure, there is only the one place to stay for budget accommodation the one-and-only Khao Sarn Road area.

Take your pick, loads of places to stay.

This place (Baan Dinso) is in the Old City, adjacent to KSR, and looks interesting:

I would go for the Soi Rambuttri area, which is just round the corner from Khao San Road. It's quieter than Khao San, but still caters for backpackers, with loads of budget accommodation and good cafes and restaurants. I stayed at 2 places on Soi Rambuttri - Bella Bella and My House and both were fine.

My advice is to stay in the Sukhumvit Road or Siam area not far from a Skytrain stop. You can use the Skytrain to take you to many places in Bangkok real easy. The Skytrain is an overhead rail service, like a subway in the sky.

In the Sukhumit Road area there are hotels in all price ranges. From this area you will have easy access to travel agencies for tours or plane tickets, malls, street vendors, bars, restaurants and even supermarkets.

If you need a recommendation for a hotel mention how much you want to spend per night to narrow down any recommendations.

Khao San Road has lots of cheap places to stay but no easy access to the Skytrain route. If you are quite young then you may be happy with this area where you will find many other really young travelers.

Some possible hotel choices:
