I have been a few times in this hostel and the last time I spent almost a month there. Bee, the owner, is very helpful. The location is really good and very well connected by BTS, MRT and buses. Also plenty of places to eat around. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm but I know there also nice double...

Very nice hostel. Clean rooms and bathroom. The owner is one of the kindest woman I have ever met. She is so accommodating. The breakfast is very good. Because it is off the beaten path it's not a very backpacker social hostel. We did meet some people but the common area wasn't very widely used. Maybe that just because of...

I came to visit Bangkok and the Full Moon Party, and I have to say that this hostel was one of the best I've been to. The owners of the hostel were fantastic and helped me out when I missed a flight. Also, I wanted a souvenir monk bowl that couldn't fit in my backpack. They went out of the...

We stayed here twice whilst in Thailand and loved it both times. We stayed in a female dorm, which was very clean, comfortable and not at all cramped. Undoubtedly the best thing about the hostel was the owner who went out of her way on numerous occasions to help us and answer our questions and made our time in Bangkok...

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
