I stayed at the Slumber party hostel @ the beach but they have two hostels in Krabi / Ao Nang. Its an nice hostel for party people. They are focused on party people. When you want to do pubcrawls and party activities just stay here. The dorm rooms are clean but small. Nice toilet, shower and aircondition. They also offer tours. Isn’t that cheap but the vibe will be nice.
When you want something else in Bangkok you can go surfing at the Flow House. I did and it is a great thing to do. When you’re a little sportive than you’ll have a great time!
Flow house Bangkok bodyboard
You will start on a bodyboard. That is good to do. Just do it, watch the other people for a sec and you’ll see how they do it. Some little kids are playing around like professionals. Just start at the beginning and do it on your own speed. Those kids are there everyday I think 🙂
I stayed 3 nights at the Havet house hostel in Krabi / Ao Nang. It is a good hostel when you look what you get for that price. I payed 200 baht for the dorm room with van. It’s a 20 minute walk to the beach that’s OK because when you walk to the beach or walk back to the beach you will see some nice street food. Muslim chicken kebab, spingrolls and a lot more for less money! At the hostel its quite but around there are a lot of places to eat and at the other side of the street is the Slumber Party Hostel were you can party if you want.
At my second stay in Bangkok I booked the Born Free Vista Hostel. It’s a nice hostel close to Khao San Road. Some places for food around and a seven eleven in the next street. Thet have good solid beds with nice matrasses. In the room they have airconditioning and the rooms are dark in the morning. And thats a advantage after a good night at Khao San Road 😉 I liked the lounge in the hostel as well. You can hang around in front of the van eat, drink, talk and just chill there. The wifi is quiet good for send and recieve messages but when you walk (5 min) to the Mc Donalds the free wifi is perfect. (see the code on a bill)
Hostel close to Khoa San Road
Close to Khoa San Road without the music in the night. I think this Hostel is a good option when you want to go out here! There are two Born Free Hostel hostels in Bangkok, both on walking distance to Khao San Road. My tip, grap some cheap streetfood before you start drinking 😉
I’m from Holland and like to bike. So yesterday I had an amazing experiance! I did a biketour trough Bangkok. We saw local markets, Chinatown, Tempels, local sports, Flowermarket and tasted different kind of snacks on our way trough small lanes and traffic. I think when you want to see the real Bangkok and want to see how the local people are living, the biketour is a nice option. I did the Bangkok biketour of 4.5 hours including some drinks, local snacks and even a dr. Fish treatment at the end.
This is a good place for budget traveler who wants a nice clean hostel. I stayed for three nights and booked their 10 bed dorm room. The hotel is 10 – 15 minutes walk to the nearest MRT station (Lumpihi MRT Station). Bathroom was clean and with an nice hot shower. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Hostel Bangkok close to Seven Eleven, Massage and Restaurants
Arround the corner on one minute walking is the 7/11. Great to pick up some cold beers and snacks. One minute furter is are several massage salons. For only 200 baht you’ll get a one hour Thai or feet massage. I liked it! On three minutes from the hostel are some restaurants. You can eat Thai or western depends on what you prefer. But they have it in the street! At the end of that street (5 min walk) is another 7/11. In front of that 7/11 you’ll find some streetfood. I liked the Pad Thai with egg! And from the other one the salad, little spicy but realy nice. Together (big Pad Thai and salad) for 60 Baht! (1.50 euro!) Last but not least, at the corner of the second 7/11 you will find a bakery. They sell nice panini’s and sandwiches for 40 baht 🙂
