The Suneta Hostel, a modern hostel in Bangkok’s Old Town, is highly appreciated and recommended among many visitors who stayed there. It’s situated five minutes walking distance from Khao San Road! The friendly and motivated Suneta team knows how to deal with their guests and we have experienced that for ourselves. Super friendly and fun people work there!
In some dormitories this nice hostel has chosen to work with wooden partitions instead of the standard curtains. This way you have more privacy and it helps against the noise of your roommates, very smart though we say ourselves! If you’re looking for a hostel with an amazing service including a simple but good breakfast for a nice price, then the Suneta Hostel is the place to be!
Krit Hostel is a very tastefully decorated and modern hostel less than a kilometer from Khao San Road! In the common chill room the slogan ‘adventures are forever’ appears on the wall, we totally agree! It’s the adventurous memories that stay with us! In the Krit Hostel you can sleep in a mixed dormitory but there is also a separate dormitory for women. We hear from a lot of people that the beds are great to sleep in, in Thailand beds are often on the hard side… The staff is very friendly and speaks good English, handy to ask some questions about nice places in Bangkok! A nice plus at this hostel is that there is also a roof terrace with a few tables and chairs here and there. A nice place to get to know your fellow residents!
The Krit Hostel also has a cozy coffee bar! Here you can order delicious (ice) coffee!

There is a possibility to join certain beds together by means of the separate dividing wall. That means spooning with your girl for next to nothing! The staff is helpful and gives good tips on what to do in Bangkok. And that’s good because Born Free lends out free bikes so you can explore Bangkok by bike.
The owner and staff of The Oasis Hostel are very friendly and attentive, according to the many guests who have slept here.
