Great hostel to stay at while in Bangkok. The staff is extremely friendly and hospitable, they even packed me a breakfast without me asking and saw me out the door when I had to leave at 5AM to catch a train. I have stayed here twice and both times the rooms have been clean and comfortable.

I love everything about this hostel. It's in the middle of Silom road, Great night market with plenty of street food and restaurants to dine in. Close to the BTS station. The hostel is very clean and these are the most comfortable beds I've slept in on my trip throughout Thailand. There's a common room with a big couch and...

A friend a I stayed here for a few days upon a recommandation of a friend of us. It's located on a side street, bit off the busy Silom Road. That means, you barely hear anything inside the hostel of all the noise outside. We were in a double bed private room. The beds were comfy and the room was...

This hostel was great! I had the double private ensuite which gave me lots of sleeping room, a private bath and breakfast included. All areas were impeccably clean and my room was cleaned daily. The staff was great and went above and beyond to help me! The location was great, right off a Main Street so it's easy to grab...

This was probably our favourite hostel on our trip - clean, peaceful, and friendly. Our private room was nicer and cleaner than some hotel rooms. The lady who runs it is really kind and helpful: she arranged so much for us, gave us directions, suggestions, and when I left my tablet there by accident not only did she keep it...

Great place to layover between trips around SE Asia (Bangkok is the transport hub). Conveniently located near a Sky Train station (Sala Daeng) and the MRT (Subway), it's easy to get to the airport (BKK) or the train station (Hua Lamphong). Banks, markets, bars, food...it's all near by, a must stay place to lay over between excursions.

Staying in Silom

Neighborhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
