1You need to get something straight. You're not in Europe or N. America or Australia. You're in Southeast Asia. Hotels and guesthouses in this part of the world are cheap, as in 200 or 300 or 400 Thai baht. Do the math. That means you get to sleep in your very own private room with your very own bathroom for as little as US$6. No need to sleep in a dorm unless you really think that's cool. If that's the case, then yes, look for a hostel. There's at least one in BKK that I know of.

You should also mention your price range whenever asking for hotel recommendations. Who knows, your budget may buy more than you think in Bangkok! By the way, most of the time you cannot bring a date back to your room if you are in a hostel!
These suggestions are close to malls, nightlife, street vendors, restaurants and the Nana Skytrain stop. Below hotels will have air and private toilet and shower. For cheap hotels and guesthouses don't expect fancy lobbies or beautiful exteriors.

Suk 11 Hostel and Soi 1 Hostel - both on Sukhumvit not far from Nana Skytrain stop.
This Nana area has access to the Skytrain which connects with the subway and with the new Airport Rail Link.

4#1, did you not stop and think that the OP has no experience of the types of accommodation in Thailand??. How about cutting him some slack.
Definitely another vote for KSR area. Plenty of like minded either on KSR or neighbouring Soi Rambuttri.
