CHERN Bangkok

Top choice hostel in Banglamphu
Image by

The vast, open spaces and white, overexposed tones of this hostel converge in an almost afterlife-like feel. The eight-bed dorms are above average, but the private rooms are particularly impressive, with attractively minimalist touches, a large desk, TV, safe, fridge and heaps of space, and are a steal at this price.
