I've been in Bangkok a few times, and this place always feels like home. Perfect for the stereotypical backpacker, chilled out during the day but the bar downstairs gets lively after dark. Pub crawls and dress up nights are common, there's always something interesting happening.

I stayed here my first night in Bangkok and the girl was really friendly and welcoming. The place is clean, it's not a hundred years old like other hostels I've stayed in, and the people were nice, with a nice communal area and bar and nice atmosphere. Excellent value for money- would stay here again!

The hostel is nice, clean, and a short walk from the night life of Khao San Road. The bathroom is functional. Beers cost 60-90 baht. There is a nice communal atmosphere downstairs where it's easy to meet people to drink with. Staff were really friendly and polite. There is small lockable spaces under the bed for valuables but remember your... More

Great Friendly hostel, not far from everything you need. Owners are friendly and helpful, showers are hot, beds are comfy. The common area is a great spot to hangout and meet new people. Thanks Sophie and Lasse

I booked back home because of the good reviews on facebook. I made my booking, got a confirmation email, and even an email from back home saying my late check in will be fine. Once I arrived at back home after an 11 hour flight I was very keen to head straight to bed. But upon checkingbin with my confirmation... More

Hi Alysha, We are very sorry for your inconvenience Alysha, we can understand your frustration. Due to travelers whom decide to stay on longer at our hostel we sometimes experience more home stayers than we can accommodate. If this arises, we always are prepared with another option @ 1 of our sister hostel, directly next door, 5 footsteps away. (clean,... More

Back Home Backpacker was the second accommodation we stayed at when starting our trip across SE Asia. The first couple of night we stayed at Rainbow Hostel at the end of Khao san road and it just wasn't for us. They only offered separate rooms and the common area was uninviting. When we discovered Back Home Backpackers we knew instantly... More

Just what you look for in a hostel, especially as you first arrive into the somewhat overwhelming city of Bangkok!! The owners are both crazily friendly and a good laugh, has a very social feel to it and nice clean rooms! Nicely located close to restaurants, Khao San road and various travel agents for all your needs!

Back Home Backpackers was the first accomodation we had for our travel through Asia, and arguably the best. The atmosphere is amazing, it's a great place to meet people and Sophie is the best hostess I met. Definitely recommended
