Stayed here on two separate occasions, and both times I had an adequately good stay!
Rooms were tidy, nice beds, maybe hard for some.
Washroom is good, but there is a lack of hanging or shelfs for clothes, just throw over the door!
Lobby has a communal area, coffee and drinks, a pool table, tv… great little social gathering area and nice decor but a bit dark. Book shelf with plenty of books about Thailand
The area: Okay you are in the heart of Sukhumvit (red-light district) there are plenty of normal bars, naughty bars if that’s your thang, street food vendors, bars with food, massage parlours (professional & not-so professional) you can easily choose which, as the not-so will have lady boys outside trying to look sexy (not pulling it off very well) and grabbing your hand mister and saying ‘massage’ whilst holding you firmly…they are quite strong hahaa!
Location: Down a dead end alley (Soi: side street) a few minutes walk from Nana BTS, (also close to Asoke to transfer to airport) and Phloen Chit, even though you are in a lively area the Hostel is quiet as it’s tucked away from the loud bars, but is still a safe area, plenty of people always around.
You are a few stops from Siam where the upscale shopping malls are, also MBK Center is there which has electronics and market stalls throughout and a food terrace.
Airport: this is a good location for starting and finishing your travels if you are flying out of Bangkok international airport.
Take the BTS Skytrain Sukhumvit line (light green) from Nana (one stop to Asoke) heading towards Bearing station change for the MRT line (light blue) you’ll have to walk to Sukhumvit station, but it’s literally on top of one another.
From there take the train that heads to Bang Sue one stop to Phetchburi, change to the Makkasan station again a short walk. From there you can catch either the Airport Rail Link Express or City line (red or dark blue) to Suvarnabhumi (Bangkok) airport.
It sounds complicated but trust me it isn’t!
Enjoy your holiday and CheQinn.
