This place is something interesting, first of all keep in mind it's someone's home not a hotel or a hostel it's a home! Second of all, it's not in the tourist area so if you want that go look for something else. All though a meter taxi drops you of at khao San road for 60bath so if you're oke... More

Spent a few days over Christmas 2015 with Aaron, Niddy, the cats and some lovely guests...................................... Great corner of Bangkok where you get a real 'slice of real Thai life!' Just the place for cat lovers and budget conscious explorers who don't want to be constantly hassled by touts..

If you're up for a basic hostel, this is your place...and because I love cats. There's lots of funky things to look at, lots of cats to cuddle and pat. The owner was certainly friendly and welcoming and the cats well taken care of...but clearly we have different levels of cleanliness and sanitation...which I can accept to a point, being... More

We only stayed one night while we were transiting through Thailand but our stay was comfortable and fun. They have a lot of helpful info on the area and are to point you in the direction of what you need. We are actually going back to Bangkok in 6 weeks and needed an address to send a package.

Cat lovers paradise, one cat even uses the toilet. Best Thai food ever across the street. Owners will... More

It's a small hostel with friendly people and lot of cats (and I love cats!!!). Simply but very nice. I meet kindly people and it is near the boat to go to the city centre. If you want a cheap but nice guesthouse, full of backpackers, this is the right place :)

This was the perfect place to start my travels in Thailand. The hostel is in a neighborhood with few tourists and great street food. It's very close to the river so it's still easy to access some of the bigger sites but it's a bit quieter and defiantly cheaper than some of the other areas. The owners Aaron and niddy... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Speak-Easy Homestay. Conveniently located 2 minutes walking distance away from the Tha Din Daeng Pier, where you can ferry directly across the Chaophraya River to the Ratchawong Pier. There, you will find the popular Saturday Night Market in Khlong Thom, and Chinatown as well. From the Ratchawong Pier, you can also hop on a River Taxi to go upstream to Khaosan Road, The Grand Palace, Wat Arun, Wat Po, and many other great places. In our cafe, you can feel welcome to enjoy sipping on a wide selection of beverages or munch on some bakery goods and treats, while relaxing on our comfortable furniture, in our home-style environment, with some great music, and WiFi access. A great place to come with friends or meet new ones. Our neighborhood is away from the main tourist spots, so it's a great place to discover some of the most delicious street food in Bangkok, explore the many day and night markets in the area, meet friendly locals, and experience REAL Bangkok. We are also really close to Chinatown, museums and temples such as the beautiful Grand Palace, shopping centres, Choapraya River, and even crazy Khao San Road. Our hostel has easy access to different transportation such as buses, BTS and riverboats, and is 800 metres from China Town and 1.5 km from Hualumphong Train Station. We are lovely family and our cats all friendly. always welcome people to our home. Hope to see you soon. Speak-easy family ... more   less
