Cheap Bangkok accommodation for female solo traveler


Hello, I'm going to Thailand (first stop Bangkok) next week. I'm on my own so I was wondering if you know a good hostel in the center that is cheap and full with other backpackers but still nice. And should I book in advance?


Answer: Hey, try My House. Lots of backpackers there, shabby, cheap and it's located 5 minutes from Khao san road.
My House Bangkok

Or try the new Nappark Hostel -- received lots of good reviews, but haven't stayed there myself. It's on Khao san road. 570 B for mixed dorms. Nappark

Booking? When are you arriving in Bangkok? We didn't book in advance for My House. We just showed up on their door.

If you're arriving late at night, I would suggest to book in advance. You'll be jetlagged and the last thing you need to do is to look for accommodation in the middle of the night.

Bangkok Accomodation

I stayed at Nappark in Bangkok and it was great. Good location and atmosphere to meet other travelers (but a tad pricey). Booking online in advance is cheaper I think, and worth it because it is a popular place so quite often full (even in low season).

I also stayed at WE Bangkok, which was a great hostel but not the best location for getting around to see sights and such (it is in Silom, a more business type district and thus more expensive food). They do provide free tuk tuk to the Bangkok metro station though. They were also busy during the low season and we had to move. Beds started at 350 Baht and included a light breakfast and a there was a nice roof-top bar.

The third place I stayed is mentioned in Lonely Planet - Shanti Lodge, which was immaculately clean and had a great atmosphere. Since it is more of a guesthouse with only private rooms I found it more difficult to meet other travelers, but it isn't far from Khao San and served EXCELLENT food in their restaraunt which is totally organic and has an extensive vegetarian menu. Double bed with fan and shared bathroom started at 400 B when I was there in August 2011.

Good luck with your travels, and make sure you get the address and phone number for wherever you decide to stay, Bangkok cab drivers are interesting characters!
