Adventure Hostel Review

Rating: star star star star star (5 stars out of 5) - a must-experience
Room Occupied: Train Room 2 bunk beds, window, air-conditioning, free wifi
Location: 1541 Phahonyothin Rd., Payathai, Bangkok, Thailand

Value for Money
Starting at B350 for a dorm bed, Adventure Hostel is probably not the cheapest around. But considering what you get, it's great value for the following:

  • breakfast included with the room - fruit, cereal, coffee, tea, toast and jam
  • CCTV cameras - for added security
  • air-conditioned - rooms + dine-in place
  • wifi - free and reliable inside or outside the room
  • keycard access - added security
  • personal locker - provide your own padlock
  • internet station - a pc is provided
  • open roof deck - shaded
  • laundry
  • all female dorm
  • footwear off - all footwear is removed upon entering, keeping the place clean

Efficient, Helpful and Friendly Staff
This is usually standard in big hotels, but at Adventure Hostel, the staff go the extra mile. When I asked them about a train alternative to my destination, they looked up the details online and got back to me with train schedule, tariff and how to get there. They showed me on the map where to get the best Baht rate for my dollar, where to buy Thai sim card, etc.

Hands-on Owner
The owner is very involved in the day-to-day operation of the hostel, ensuring a tight ship. He's open to suggestions (and I had plenty!) and looking for ways to better his hotel.

BTS N7 Saphan Khwai Train Station
This is perhaps the hostel's unique selling point. The station is right in front of the hotel, giving me fast and convenient access to any point in the city. When the roads are clogged during rush hour, the trains are a time saver.

Ending Thoughts
I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. Next time I visit Bangkok again, I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

disclosure: this hotel became a client because I wanted to make it a client. They run a good hotel business and that's the kind of client I look for.

Adventure Hostel

the open roof deck is just across the BTS train station air-conditioned kitchen/dine-in area - breakfast included in the room price breakfast included soup noodles, cereals, coffee and tea a fruit basket is there all day
from the roof deck, you can see the BTS N7 Train Station the open roof deck the guard salutes after inspecting the bag...view from the roof deck when come out of the hotel, the BTS Saphan Khwai N7 Station is right in front
