Only in a city with 10,000 hotel rooms could you find a boutique hostel. Backpackers needn’t sacrifice style at this property just off Silom Road.
Opened in 2008, it’s decorated with muted colors punctuated by bright mandarin orange furniture. Stay in one of the dormitories if you want to share a room with other cool travelers (there’s also a women’s-only dorm), or reserve one of the private rooms with en-suite bathrooms.
The communal bathrooms with modern fixtures and concrete are seriously chic and sleek and, like any good hostel, the kitchen/café is where people meet and congregate.
