There are lots of backpackers here for good reason: walking distance to everything. The place is very clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Train reservations were made for me in minutes at the front desk that would have taken me hours to accomplish. Wifi was a little sporadic but last night a router was hard wired to my...

We enjoyed the one night spent at this hostel. The people are friendly and welcoming, rooms are clean and tidy. Within walking distance to Khaosan Rd, yet in a quiet neighborhood. Breakfast was also great compared to what one usually gets in Thailand. All in all great bang for your buck!

We arrived at Khaosan Baan Thai on 29th November. They were extremely welcoming (the lady speaks very good English and all the rest try their best), prompt to show us to our room & very helpful with all our needs. Khaosan Baan Thai is away from Khaosan Road, but within walking distance (10-15mins), which is what we wanted. The hostel...

I stayed with my boyfriend in twin bed room whit shared toilet/bath. Room was big and nice, two fan. Mattress is hard but it's not bad. Hostel is quiet, clean, staff is very friendly and helpful, everyone doesn't speak english so well. Near Khao Saan Road which is nice place to see. Different in day and night time. Wifi is...

Friendly staff, very clean, little bit hard beds, but that's a Thai thing. 10 minutes walking from Khaosan road, near river where you can catch a boat, 5 minutes walk from standing Buda temple, 25 minutes from Wat Pho.

Stayed at the twin bedroom with shared toilet/bath. The bedroom is big, with average bed and other normal writing desk/chair. The air-condition is fixed at 25C though and can be tough if the bed get warm at night. The rooms are separated by wooden walls so it can be a bit noisy at night but there are notices to guest...

This place is a score! We were given room 205 and i could not ask for more. Our room is simple, clean and cozy plus we got a nice view (we can see Rama VIII bridge from our little veranda). I have no complain with the shared bathrooms too when it comes to cleanliness. The staff in the morning morning...

The rooms are nice and cheap. Shared bathroom and shower but they are good, maybe the best and cleanest ones i have seen! Free breakfast also. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to khao san road, so its very near but you still got your own peace! Nothing bad to say about this place!

Love this place! The rates may be low, but there is nothing cheap about this place. The bed I had was nice and comfy and my room was spotless. Actually, the whole place, including the shared bathroom, is incredibly clean! Everybody here was also very (and genuinely) nice. So high marks for service, cleanliness, everything. Great idea to stay here...

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.

“There are stairs here regardless of what room you are in. If you find stairs difficult, you may want to ask if you can arrange for a first floor room so that you only have to tackle one flight of steps.”

“Room with A/C is not much more expensive and very quiet compared to most.”
