Although I visit Thailand quite often, I never really spend any time in Bangkok. I normally fly into Suvarnabhumi airport and then drive straight through town, so this time I decided I would spend two nights in Bangkok. After looking around online at a few different hostels I finally found one that I loved the look of, Bed Station Hostel.
Bed Station Hostel is a cosy little hostel located in the heart of Bangkok. First off, the location is brilliant, only a 2-minute walk from the BTS Station, with many different bus links in the local area and a taxi around every corner. It’s also close to certain attractions such as Madame Tussauds Bangkok, Baiyoke Sky Tower, Victory Monument and Lumpini park. It’s only half an hour on the train from other popular attractions such as Khao San Road, the Grand Palace and the Golden Mount. During my stay I decided to take a walk down to Lumpini park, it took me about half an hour and I had a really nice time. The park is stunning with lots of different activities held there such as cheerleading practise, yoga and there is even an outdoor gym and café. The walk down to the park was also nice, I got to watch the traffic from the walkways above and there are a lot of shops and restaurants to visit.
I really enjoyed my stay in this hostel, I was in a six-person dorm room. The rooms were spacious and modern, all the beds had curtains around so you could close them to have some privacy if you wanted and they also came with bedside lights, two plug sockets and a numbered locker in the room which were big enough to fit my big rucksack in. On the floor the room was situated on there was one bathroom for everyone to share but on floor 4 are the main bathrooms. The bathrooms consisted of three toilets, a row of sinks, shower cubicles and a large dressing table with hair dryers. The showers were by far my favourite part of the bathroom! The shower had a waterfall type shower head and after a long flight it was just what I needed to get clean and relax!
On the ground floor of the hostel is reception, a bar where free coffee and tea was served all day and a free breakfast! There is also a large dining table where you can sit, eat and chat with other travellers. On the first floor is the common area, here there are a few bean bag chairs and a row of computers and a TV for people to use. The chairs were comfortable and I sat down here to do some of my work, after a short time I was joined by the hostels cat, Khaosan! She was very cute and loved attention so I ended up sitting down there cuddling the cat and not doing my work!
The hostel also provides free wifi and laundry and drying services. I really liked my stay here, the bed was very comfortable and the location was fabulous, if I was to stay in Bangkok again I would stay here again!
