5 Stylish Yet Affordable Hostels in Bangkok

Often called the “City of Angels”, it’s hard to deny that Bangkok is one of the biggest and most vibrant cities in Southeast Asia. Everybody that had a chance to stop by all fell in love with the warmth of the people, delicious cuisines, ancient mystical temples, sparkling nightlife, economical outdoor markets, and much more. There is never a dull moment wandering the streets of Bangkok, and that is why every year millions of people from all around the world decide to spend their vacation in the capital of Thailand.

Being a hotspot for tourism, Bangkok is densely packed with accommodations of all budgets in every area of the city. No matter the length of your stay or the plans you have, it is most likely that you will be spending most of your time outside. Therefore, spending a premium on room service or luxurious spa facilities at a 5-star hotel might not be what you're aiming for. If so, why not stay in a hostel then? Scratch off your worries about accommodation costs and instead use that budget on exploring what Bangkok has to offer.

Hostels are the ultimate alternative to hotels as they come with everything you need for a good night stay including Free Wi-Fi, clean bathrooms, safe storage, cozy beds, working space, and even breakfasts. This type of hospitality is becoming extremely popular not just in Bangkok, but all of Thailand. Frequented by foreigners as well as local travelers, it is easy to see why hostels are a popular choice over traditional hotels.

Think of friendly local staff members, open lobbies, inclusive atmosphere, and often a great location, are only a few perks of staying in a hostel.
