Stayed 4 nights in a Deluxe private room on top floor. It was perfect, couldn't ask for better room. Spacious and modern bathroom, very clean and great WiFi. The bed was large but a bit hard as per non Asian standards. Reception and lobby area are nice, good place to sit and relax and you have free access to computers.... More

Amazing place with loads of communal space, breakfast included, super clean bathrooms and massive dorm rooms. Each bed has a huge locker space. Slightly far away from the main "attractions" but this makes it quieter. 10 min walk to the Embassy of Myanmar for visa application process. Highly recommended ")

Great stay, really recommend it! A Bit far from the center of Bangkok City, however you can easily get a cheap tuktuk or taxi to the center. I would say it is about 15minutes drive? However it makes up for this by being very close to the BTS station. At first prior to booking the 15minute drive may seem annoying,... More

We are a group of 3 and we booked a 4-bed mixed dorm but we were given a room for 3 people only. :)) And the room was spacious with individual lockers per bunk. Location is close to a BTS station (Surasak station) and to Patpong. A taxi ride from Khao San costs us only 67 baht. They serve daily... More

There are a million and one lodging options in Bangkok and the range of quality can be quite drastic. Saphaipae Hostel was a great pick after much internet research. We stayed in a deluxe double room that fit our needs very well. They have all the amenities that you would need for a comfortable stay. We really enjoyed having a... More

After doing a lot of research on hostels in Bangkok, I determined that Saphaipae was where I wanted to be. It was close to the BTS station and seemed central to all I wanted to do. I arrived in Bangkok late and the BTS station was already closed so I had to take a taxi to the hostel. Nonetheless it... More

Khao San Road is a 200 Baht tuk tuk away, but the area has good bars, restaurants and street food to choose from. The BTS is really close and the ferry dock is also close. Great value and super clean and big hostel for Bangkok!

This was my first time in Bangkok and it was a very comfortable place to stay. Very clean and colourful with a very luxurious bathroom. It has everything you need: 24hr reception, tour desk and food available. However, I did get very lost a couple of times trying to find my way to public transport stations and asking directions from... More

The hostel itself is great. It has all the facilities you need ranging from a great tv room and a great common room to hang out in. They have a pool table, board games, books and a bar. The room was clean and massive so were the toilets. The only problem was the tours they recommended at the hostel were... More
