I'm arriving in Bangkok Jan 4th. I will be going straight for Khao San Road. Would you pre book in a hostel for couple of nights or just find one when you get there??

If so which hostels would you recommend as good value and as a good starter to get into it as this is my first time.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You shouldn't need to book in advance as there are so many options on Khao San Road. Also try Soi Rambuttri a couple of blocks away for more accommodation. It's a little quieter than KSR and a pleasant area.
