I started my trip with a Youth Hostel thinking I would meet some like minded people who I could get infos and tipps from like on previous stays with HI. Unfortunately (well, just for this piece), I barely met anyone and the hostel was the most quiet one I have ever seen. For two days I thought I was the only guest even though it is in walking distance to Kohsang Road. On the other hand I really enjoyed the good night's sleep for the same reason. :-)

Very friendly and helpful staff, speaking very good english. Nice and comfy place not far from bus stop, street market and restaurants. Check in 24 hours. Breakfast included but not really suitable for vegans... Only bad sides the amount of stairs you have to climb if you have a big backpack to carry like we did and the bed is hard as rock but I guess this is Thai style! :) The room was big, with air conditioning and pretty clean for the price. We would definitely go again if needed.
