Property Description

We are in a traditional Thai / Chinese building, featuring a beautiful in house balcony and interesting but somewhat quirky architectural elements.

Downstairs is a cozy lounge with plenty of sofas and tables. We provide guitars, chessboards, a book exchange, free city bikes and maps for discovering Bangkok's forgotten neighborhoods and self-catering facilities such as a refrigerator, boiler, toaster, microwave and cutlery.

Our small café is just across the hostel, which offers plenty of vegetarian and vegan Thai and Mediterranean options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We use only high quality ingredients from the local markets and royal farming project.

Don't miss out on our local weekly events such as street soccer nights, night bike tours, club and night market nights.

If travel information is needed, we also run a travel agency called Born Free Travel, so guests may inquire or book transportation, tours and accommodation in Thailand directly on-site.

This hostel has three dormitory style rooms and one private room.

A basic 10 bed mixed dorm with shared bathroom. The Room has rotating fans on the ceiling for the top bunks and a small private fan for each bottom bunk.

A standard 12 bed mixed dorm with air condition and shared bathroom. This Room has a more creative bunk bed setup in which dividers can be removed allowing couples and good friends to sleep next to each other. Every bed has a reading light, personal pouch and a comfortable thick blanket.

A superior 6 bed mixed dorm with air condition. The room has an en suite bathroom with hot water and a cozy balcony with comfortable sofas. Every bed has a reading light, personal pouch and a comfortable thick blanket. This dorm is also suitable as a private room.

    Awesome and super clean hostel. The location is great and in a quiet area of Bangkok, but still really close of everything. Staff and customer here are more on a chill mood than a party one. Was perfect for me :)

    The hostel was nice, everyone was friendly, when we ran into a weird situation while at the Grand Palace we called the hostel and got clear information that helped us make it through all the scams. Nice quiet environment but the staff worked real hard to make sure people felt included and talked to.

    Honestly one of the best hostels I’ve stayed in! The owner and staff are super nice and it was a nice change of pace from the party hostel vibe as this feels like a little oasis! They have bikes for rent and will set up tours and are overall super accommodating. Super happy with my stay 👌🏻

    This has been such a beautiful and comfortable hostel to stay at. We have stayed here every time we have come to Bangkok. The staff were so helpful and made you feel at home. There is a really peaceful common area to hang in out during the day. Also great location close to a lot of cheap delicious places to eat. Would definitely recommend to stay here ! Thank you to all the lovely staff here at Born free !

    Fabulous

    The staff at Born Free are awesome and will go out of their way to help with any needs. The A/C was amazing in my room and the en-suite bathroom was a nice plus. My last night there we woke up at 4am to some random drunk dude sleeping on our floor which was unsettling, but this is more the fault of folks in my room who didn’t lock the door when they came in that night, and not the fault of the hostel. The last morning there I smelled urine all down the stairs, but overall a great stay!

    Very much enjoyed this hostel with its atmospheric decor and social atmosphere. Close enough to Khao SAN to enjoy the atmosphere, far enough for some peace and quiet. Attached cafe served excellent food. Bedrooms were clean.

    Fabulous

    23 Jun 2019
    We absolutely loved our stay at Born Free. Very clean, felt very safe. Within walking distance of Khao San Road and the main sites. The restaurant opposite is owned by the same people as the hostel and was the best food we had in Bangkok! The staff were very helpful and even flagged down a taxi for us to get to the train station. 7/11 and ATM just around the corner. Kitchen was quite small but as food in Bangkok is cheap this wasn't a problem.

    Good location near Khao San road. However, everything else left something to be desired. Pillows are cracked plastic cushions wrapped in thin cases, the big room has no a/c or curtains--no locks are provided, the front of the hostel does not lock, the door to the room does not lock. Bathroom is on a different floor. Staff was not able to provide recommendations for local things to do, despite the main road being a block away. There are better quality and better value places nearby.
