Hostelworld says:

HI-Sukhumvit is just off the busy Sukhumvit Rd, near the Skytrain and on a street known for the high quality of its street food. Hostelworld guests have said that 'after the craziness of Bangkok it was a relief to get back here every day. The hostel has an open, airy feel, and the rooftop terrace is an ideal place to sit day or night and look across the skyline with a beer'. This hostel is quiet at night and features air conditioning, free daily bottles of drinking water and a 'warm and relaxed' atmosphere, according to our users.

Property Information:

'Not just a hostel , but a home'
a unique backpacker's hostel with an exotic Thai feel.

Just 100 meters from lively Sukhumvit Road, with its many restaurants, lounges and bars, and a 2 minute walk to the BTS SkyTrain Thong Lo Station, HI-Sukhumvit is a convenient, welcoming place for you to base yourself in Bangkok. Tucked away on a side street renowned for its terrific street food, with a Koi pond and clean, inviting outdoor space and roofdeck to call your own, we will give you a quiet haven within the chaos of downtown Bangkok.

  • HI-Sukhumvit says

    I think what makes us special is that we do little changes every year in order to keep the hostel new, fresh and bright. We really like to keep a friendly home-away-from-home atmosphere here so that guests can feel relaxed, refreshed and comforted, right from their first step into the hostel.
    In the area around us, guests can jump up and loosen up with a morning stroll around the lake Benjasiri Park. I recommend guests come to Sukhumvit at night for drinking, perfect for those looking to experience a very Thai night on Thong Lo or Nana.

    I love Hi Sukhumvit! It's the best place I've stayed in Asia and it really felt like my home for a while. I will definately go back if I return to Bangkok. I met so many new friends. It was great to be able to make my own food. The staff were helpful and caring. A great view from the roof top terrace. And the location with the night food market and the skytrain just close by

    I've been coming to this hostel for 8 years and for me, it is great. Those who want to party all night should look elsewhere, as this is not that kind of hostel. They're pretty strict with their rules, but that's what keeps the place in good order. I like the night food stalls outside on Soi 38 but am told by vendors I've known for years they will be ended and forced to move February 2016 in favor of new condos, which may really take the life out of this particular spot in Bangkok.
