My first time in Asia but not my first time in a hostel. I've stayed in hostels the world over and this was the best to date. Whether on a budget (mixed dorms 4 beds) or travelling as a couple (deluxe room) why on earth would you stay anywhere else!!
The whole place is modern, clean & the staff are very polite and helpful. Even the Swiss intern ;-). The hostel is frequented by travellers of all ages so don't think it's a kids only place. If you're reading this and you're from the UK don't be tempted anywhere else. Ok it's out from the 'prescribed' centre but believe me the Kho San Road area is like the nasty side of San Antonio in Ibiza. If you want to travel in this city use the taxi and insist they use the meter. Alternatively use the sky train or metro...... However bizarely none of these run into the central areas where the temples are located.
It's fairly easy & inexpensive to get here via the train from the airport. Just head for the National Stadium stop.
Make sure to eat in the MBK 6th floor food hall located across the road. All you need to do is go to the top floor (this place is huge so don't worry if you get lost). The food hall is brilliant and amazingly cheap. Its also a more sanitised and safe option to street food. Go to the customer service counter and exchange 100 baht for a charge card. Use this card to pay for food at any of the various kitchens around the outside of the hall. I had a pad Thai and a large fizzy drink and still had credit left!!
If you have time head to China town to get an idea what the UK may have been like during the industrial revolution. Workshops & ingenuity everywhere. Fascinating, amazing, crazy Bangkok!!
