We stayed in a very cool (Insta worthy!) container hostel in Bangkok. In this post we’re sharing our experience with you!
Name of Hostel: Guyasuka Ratchada
Nights stayed: 2
This hostel is located a little outside of the main city, but don’t let that put you off! There is a train station located just a 10 min walk away which can take you anywhere in the city. If you’re not feeling the walk the GRAB app works perfectly. We never had to wait more than 5 mins for a car (If you’re feeling brave order a bike). There is a 7/11 right next door and the local area has a few cafes and street food.
This is a hostel but isn’t the most sociable (if you’re in a dorm it’s probably more so, but we had a private room) so we didn’t get to know the staff that well. However they were very friendly and helped to direct us whenever we needed help finding anything. We also arrived before our room was ready, they happily let us drop our bags off and come back later on in the day.
Every time we talk about the Wifi in our posts we feel a bit sad. That is definitely not what our trip is about but as so many of us our working from our phones/tablets/laptops we realise it is important. We’re pleased to write that the Wifi was perfect for what we needed it for. We just can’t comment on uploading to Youtube speed.
There isn’t much to say on this other than the whole hostel was immaculately clean, even the bathroom was spotless which is sometimes hard to find whilst staying in hostels!
Value for money
We booked on Agoda and paid £11.79 per night for us both. This was for a private room with shared bathroom In our opinion this is really good value for money. Whilst this hostel in Bangkok is a little way out from all the main activities it was still worth it for us. Plus you never know what hidden gems you might find.
