NapPark Hostel at Khao San
NapPark Hostel is on the Khao San Road, so you barely have to walk (stumble) a few steps before you are back to your dorm after a night out. But it is still beautifully clean and modern, and quiet enough to not be a total party hostel.
Found off Sukhumvit Soi 31, this friendly hostel is a big hit with travelers for many reasons. Firstly, the location is cool with many local shops and street food stalls. You really feel like you are staying in the heart of Bangkok here, rather than in a tourist enclave. The dorm rooms are clean and comfortable and the beds have sumptuous mattresses, pillows and privacy curtains.
There is a huge common area with shared kitchen if you want to cook your own food and an outdoor seating area where you will meet travelers from all over the world. Mixed dorms start at just $7 US per night.
Since 2016, Vivit Hostel has emerged among the topmost for backpackers converging on Bangkok. It is located in Pra Nakhon area of the city. Several tourism attractions such as Temple of the Giant Swing Wat Sutawat, Bangkok City Pillar, Grand Palace and Temple of Emerald Buddha are located within walking distance.
Once Again Hostel
This hostel is must experience for anyone on their first backpacking in Bangkok. Once Again Hostel has something very unique, it is a dormitory with custom-made beds.

The relaxed yet lively atmosphere of Once Again is lent by backpackers from across the world. It is common to hear banter in different languages of the world in the dormitory.
