Super nice hostel of the tourist grid! We where to stay a couple of nights before we went on to Chang Mai but ended up staying like two weeks. The hostel is always visited by Charlies friends and family which sends of such a nice vibe. Charlee even invited us to his weekend house in Trat. I would recommend the... More

For the real traveler who has had enough of the Kao San Road area and wants to stay in an authentic Thai soi but still be close enough to all the sights and shopping area's. When staying at the Artists' Place one gets a true feeling of Thai city life without the headaches from scamming and cheating Tuk Tuk drivers... More

Charlee is the kind soul who's been a fixture of Krung Thonburi Soi 1! His guesthouse isn't developed for the person who wishes to take a break from city life. It's abit funky: postings, art, statues, trinkets. He's made major upgrades over the years. Most recent is the open patio overlooking the corner of the soi. Don't worry, you will... More

The signs around The Artists Place say it all, "Some guesthouses make profits, we make friends." The first time we stayed there we planned to stay for one night and ended up staying almost two weeks. Perfect for those wanting a home-feel guesthouse with character rather than the busy and loud Khaosan Rd digs. Set in a charming, local Thai... More

This is a very unique and funky guest house which you should definitely check out! But I am not 100 % sure that you'll like it. It is truly an Artists's place and you will feel like in an art gallery or museum. Unfortunately the sleeping quality is so bad that as a guest house it's simply bad. I am... More

That place is not a simple cheap accommodation. It's also the best place in Bangkok to make good friends. It's more about a mix between an art galerie, a live music place, and a new home. If you need anything, ask Charlie. He can help you and he's the saint of the travellers. Thank you Charlie ;)
