The hostel is centrally located to most touristy things but it lacks a few things. The hostel is primarily for couples and as a single traveller it did not do anything for me in terms of meeting other travellers. The breakfast is sub standard but you have to pay 10 baht every time you want to buy some water. The...

Stayed here for a couple of nights before we were meant to fly out. Contrary to the name of the place it's not that close to khaosan road. About a 10-15 minute walk. There are also some Street dogs that chill around here and at night they get super aggressive so if you're walking back from khaosan watch out! It...

Great value chilled quiet place to stay only 10 minutes walk to the craziness of the Khao San Road. Very friendly welcome with clean simple rooms in traditional teak buildings and clean shared bathrooms with enough available so there is no queuing. Simple breakfast in the morning of sausage, egg and toast. We use this place whenever we are in...

Shared bathroom between three or four rooms. Rarely was there a queue. Location. 5-10 min walk to Khao Saan Road. Perfect :) To the...

Found this place on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. Nicely tucked away (5min walk away from LeeZ cooking school if you decide to go there!) but still close enough to Khao San Road for a night on the town. Staff were lovely; friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Breakfast was 'American' - a hot dog(?), an egg and two...

Nice big rooms, very clean, good size shared bathroom (had no issues). Broke my key which they replaced without fuss. Hard beds and pillow but come to expect that now lol Good location and easy to find. We booked two nights before heading off to Cambodia. Would I return? Yes

We really enjoyed our stay at this hostel. The people running this place were so lovely. Especially with our two year old son. Great value for money and a very good location too. For me the best place to stay in Bangkok

Khosan Baan Thai is a cosy and clean Hostel/Guesthouse only a 10 minute walk north from Khao San Road. It is exactly that. If you like to escape the hustle and bustle of Bangkok for a couple of hours in the night then this the place to go. We had a ground floor family room that included an acceptable breakfast...

We arrived at the hostel in the morning, a few hours before we were set to check in, however the owners welcomed us courteously, and told us we could take a shower to freshen up after the long flight. The hostess allowed us to check in earlier than the allocated time, at no additional cost as well, which was great....

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.

“There are stairs here regardless of what room you are in. If you find stairs difficult, you may want to ask if you can arrange for a first floor room so that you only have to tackle one flight of steps.”

“Room with A/C is not much more expensive and very quiet compared to most.”
