In december I'm going to Thailand for 3 weeks.
Very enthousiastic and now I am planning and looking for accomodation.
I am looking for budget backpackers accomodation during high season ( 11 december untill 1 january ).
Budget: cheap as possible untill around 400/500 bath as highest price.
- First two nights in Bangkok (Private room - near khao san road but a few streets away to avoid the noise)
- Kanchanaburi ( 2 nights - private ore dorm room - nice location!)
- Chiang mai (4 nights - Private ore dorm - Inside the old city).
- Phuket (1 night just because I cant go in 1 day from CM to Koh Lanta - a place near the ferry ore at least easy to go to the ferry)
- Koh Lanta ( I allready booked accomodation)
- Bangkok (Again, private ore dorm - 4 nights - will be staying there on NYE)
I am 24 years old and not a diehard party animal.
I love to meet other people but I also need a good night of sleep!!
Thanks a lot for your advice!

4Jolly Frog wont have a web site. Walk in only.
KSR and the area around it is geared up for a wide age group of travellers. But it really cant be beaten if you're wanting to meet others of the younger age group. It mightnt be on the rail network but those staying in the area mostly use the river to get around. If you do need to connect to the skytrain, there are a couple of stops (the main one being Saphan Taksin) where you can catch it. In case you're wondering, I'm of the older age group who stays on Soi Rambuttri and havent any problems with the area.

Backpackers come in all ages and price ranges. More younger tourists like to choose KSR. But other areas also have cheap hotels along with rail service or other advantages. At 24 you might want to be more around adult entertainment than kiddie stuff if you are alone. Sukhumvit Road is popular, a hotel where you can walk to the Nana Skytrain stop will be handy for getting around the city and from the airport.
But closer to Christmas get what you can find.
Up to you.

6The Nana seems great but a little bit expensive for me.
I would prefer to stay under 500baht a Night and otherwise under 800Baht if for Bangkok its not possible to stay under 500.
