Looking for a hostel?

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

Connect Hostel

“Cheap to use the laundry machines, which is something essential when backpacking. The staff were attentive and chatty. Breakfast is available for 50 Baht, for the price it offered a good continental selection, however you can cook your own breakfast in the shared kitchen. The space was new and modern and in a great location.”

Norn Nung Len Cafe'&Hostel

“Ah, this was the best hostel we stayed at in our trip to Thailand! The place has a great location (close to the bus station, convenience stores & night market), lovely staff and clean facilities, all for a very reasonable price. There are multiple shared areas with some gym equipment, free flow coffee/tea/water/snacks. The beds are large and comfortable and the design of the whole place was pretty cool. I had such a great stay!”
