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.

    I've stayed at Born Free many times over the years and the quality remains top-notch. The owners have done a fantastic job of creating a comfortable and inviting atmosphere great for meeting new people. The dorms are always clean and the staff knowledgeable. Born Free takes my vote as the best hostel in Bangkok.

    Undoubtedly one of the nicest hostels Ive had the pleasure of staying in. Kevin (owner) is incredibly warm and friendly and goes the extra mile to accommodate guests. The location is PERFECT- a 10 minute walk to Khao San road but far enough from the hustle and bustle to get a comfortable night's sleep. Despite being so close to Bangkok's primary partying location, I ended up enjoying the hostels vibe so much that I spent pretty much every night talking with other guests.I can't recommend enough!

    This was my first trip to Bangkok and I am glad I booked my stay here. The staff are very kind and extremely helpful. It's run by a couple and they are always available whenever I had any questions. It kinda had a lovely homely feeling. I was looking for something in between a safe, quiet place to a walk away from a party place. It fit my needs perfectly. Emma, Kevin - you rock ! Khem - you are wonderful ! Hope I visit again... and not cut down my trip short this time :-)

    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 :)

    I absolutely loved this place! It’s perfect if you want to have a relaxed social atmosphere without loud non stop partying. The staff is also super nice and very helpful with any information you need about Bangkok and the rest of Thailand. I would definitely stay here again.

    Perfect place for a first time solo traveler like myself. Really chilled vibes with decent atmosphere. All the staff are really nice and helpful and helped book my coach up to Sukhothai and also to find a local Muay Thai gym, which I would not have known about otherwise. Great location as it’s just off the main road so loads of great food places around. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Bangkok👍🏻

    This hostel has a very nice location. I could go to all major temples on foot from there. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I stayed in a fan room and it was ok, the toilets have a nice shower and there is a kitchen where you can make some food. I would definitely stay there again.

    Staff were lovely and so welcoming and helped out with planning buses and entrance fees and just general advice. Location pretty decent near some cafes/Khao San Road. Air con was decent, definitely worth paying extra for the air con room. Can’t complain really, decent enough hostel.
