Gail and her brother have created a traveler's paradise in the center of new Bangkok. At any hour of day it seemed that there was a friendly face waiting to greet you, help you, or give you insider's advice on visiting various Bangkok sites. Inside the hostel, the first and second floors are arranged with comfy chairs, pillows, and padded floor mats, and are great areas to take advantage of Link's guidebook library, conversation, or a relaxing cup of tea after wandering about the city all day. The entire hostel is immaculately clean (including the large shared bathrooms) and any toiletries you may have forgotten can easily be replaced with products from the community basket (what a novel idea--Thank you so much for having sunblock!). Location-wise, Link is central to the train (only a short ride to the airport), the shopping district, and innumerable little eateries along quiet side streets. You can walk to a lot of historical sites, too.
I would recommend this hostel to solo and group travelers, couples looking for a more personal retreat, the old and young. With their multiple floor set up and different types of rooms it seems they can accomodate any kind of traveler.More
