BED STATION Hostel Khaosan

Among the facilities at this property are a tour desk and ticket service, along with free WiFi throughout the property. The hostel has an outdoor swimming pool, fitness centre, evening entertainment and a 24-hour front desk. The location was very central to the grand palace, Khao San Rd, etc. The property in this location is quite new and the decor is very modern and sleek. The double bed pod was a dream come true and was incredibly spacious for even two people, though it was just myself this time. The restaurant had great options and the food was very affordable. Very busy hostel with lots to do. They organize group walking tours and have in house events every week so it’s the perfect hostel for a solo traveller who wants to meet some people abroad. Loved it!

I personally booked the place as it was cheap and seemed nice from pictures, but when i got there it was more than what we expected. Clean nice and tidy with retro feel and definitely worth all the money. The best thing is the breakfast they serve. Reasonable rate with deliciousness. Things we tried - Red curry - Cheese Omlett - Grilled cheese sandwich - Pad Thai - Coconut shake - Passion fruit shake - Yoghurt shake The owner is very kind and very interactive and the family is really very good. They treat you like family and not just a business. To anyone in the world looking for this place it is really worth the money and it is at a wakable distance from Khao San road

Hostels – what are they?

Hostels offer so much more than a cheap place to stay – they're also a fun way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens and game rooms give you the chance to swap tips, tricks, and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world.

Hostels have come a long way since the first youth hostel opened back in 1912. Nowadays there's something for everyone, from budget "crash pads" to 5-star "poshtels." Whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll see that most hostels are cheaper than local hotels – and a lot more fun, too!
