The best hostels in Bangkok prove that you don't have to spend big to find style and comfort, but it is still fairly easy to blow the biggest part of your budget on your accommodation if you don't know where to look. Fortunately, we have done the research so if you are looking to save some pennies but still want to stay somewhere cool and happening in Bangkok, we have the best hostels in town. Whether you want to meet people to explore Bangkok with and are happy to share a bathroom, or even if you want your own space and not be forced to queue for the shower, then there are some bargain offers on quirky and cool hostels in Bangkok. We’ve selected our favourite places to stay if you want to save, without you having to compromise on style, all starting at less than 600 baht.
This industrial chic hostel is one of the most famous in Bangkok, and with good reason. With a modern sleek design, some quirky fittings and fixtures and you can be sure of a great welcome when you arrive here. The location is extremely handy, enabling you to enjoy not only the nightlife along Silom Road, but also not far from the sites in the Old Town, and a cab ride from Khao San if you want a backpacker experience. Rooms start with a four bed dorm, either mixed or ladies only, but if you want a little more privacy there are twins and doubles, all with access to ladies and gents bathrooms. If you are flashpacking, then we recommend the double deluxe with en-suite bathroom. Lub D also has another location in Siam (opposite MBK Shopping Mall) if you are looking for more shopping than nightlife. Read More...

Another Silom favourite, we love the different themed rooms at Take a Nap, with all 30 rooms decorated in fun cartoon styles – images like tuk tuks, flowers, temples and even a frieze inspired by a comic book strip. Rooms come with either twin or double beds and there are dorms, all with a TV and free Wi-Fi, although they start at 17 sqm with no window, so book a bigger room if you get claustrophobic. If you book in here you’ll also get a simple but filling breakfast (both international and western dishes). Location wise it’s a ten minute walk to Sala Daeng BTS, which connects you to the rest of the city. The best thing about Take a Nap is the staff who are friendly, knowledgeable and happy to go the extra distance to help out their guests. Read More...

If you are looking for a great value and quirky place to stay on Sukhumvit, then we recommend Suk 11. It has one of the coolest locations in town, on Sukhumvit 11, where you will find enough nightlife and restaurants to keep even the most hardcore party goer happy. Suk 11 Hostel is also the only leafy spot on the street, with a relaxed Thai restaurant attached that looks like a traditional wooden Thai house. Inside, scrawlings and date stamps from previous guests cover the corridor walls and there are plenty of lounging spots, whether to watch a film in the TV room or curl up on the settee in one of the many chill-out spaces. Rooms are simple, clean and all have air-con. Depending on your budget you can opt for a private or communal bathroom. Read More...

Taking their inspiration from the pod hotels in Japan, Boxpackers is one of the more original places in Bangkok to stay. Set up as dorms for between four and twelve people, with some ladies only rooms, everyone gets their own little enclosed bunk made out cherry and maple wood. Sheets are super soft and if you come as a couple you can even book a pod for two in the mixed dorm or slide the panel between two pods to have a chat with your pals. The location is great for shopping, located near Platinum Fashion Mall and the other fabulous malls and markets in the Pratunam district. The sky train at Ratchathewi is a ten minute walk away. Communal spaces are cool with free wi-fi, complimentary breakfast and a lounge area where you can watch a selection of DVDs from the comfort of funky, over-sized bean bag chairs. Read More...

Offering a budget boutique experience, NapPark is close enough to Khao San Road that you can walk to the party, but far enough away to ensure a great night’s stay. All the rooms here are dormitories, ranging from a whopping 22 bunk bed rooms to a superior dorm with only six bunks. The larger rooms are split into sections, making the space more intimate, and the sheets and communal areas are kept sparklingly clean. The lobby is done up in a Thai style, with day beds to lounge on and either watch television or check your emails. The Tamarind Tree Cafe not only makes delicious breakfasts and coffee, but they also display some pretty original artwork. NapPark has an on-site travel agent with an excellent reputation, so you don’t even have to leave to plan the next part of your trip. Read More...
