    My partner and I travelled in Thailand for about a month and Niras was by far one of our favorite hostels. It’s above a little cafe that’s delicious and it’s in such a central location. The staff was super helpful and the rooms clean and air conditioned. We absolutely loved staying here and would 10/10 recommend it as a home base during your stay in Bangkok!!

    The perfect boutique hostel. We stayed in a private room with en suite, and had 0 complaints. The breakfast and coffee was great, the room was cleaned each day (which we didn’t expect), and the staff was so friendly. The location was so great, and I highly recommend going up the street to the wood working area, and also to see Mai Thai at the nearby stadium.

    Such an amazing hostel right in the middle of things in Bangkok. The desk worker helped me get a ride to the skytrain to go to the airport at the end of my stay (much appreciated, thank you!!!).

    This is one of my favorite hostels ever. Such friendly staff, a great cafe, and wonderful decor that makes you feel as if you're in someone's home. Perfect location on the edge of Banglamphu - across the street from amazing street food (including legendary Jay Fai), walking or short cab to major tourist attractions, a short walk to the ferry to get to shopping. So great we stayed at the beginning and end of our trip - once in private room with shared bathroom, once with private + ensuite.

    I loved this place and would absolutely stay here again. I didn’t want to be at Khao San or a party hostel and was so happy with Niras. The location was so central to everything & it was super easy to walk everywhere. The staff was so kind! The only annoying thing was how dang thin the walls were. I stayed in a private room but I could hear every little thing. I realize the hostel is old so there’s not much that can be done about that. The atmosphere was super cute & I was really pleased overall

    Very nice decor and room. The separate private room building on the north side is appreciated. Good AC. Could use a second room key for a 2 person stay. Right next to Raan Jay Fan's resto!!

    We loved this hostel! We love to walk as much as possible so it was great to have Khao San road a 10ish nminute walk away, the Grand Palace is about 2kms away and Chinatown is 3ish kms. It has a neat atmosphere and the cafe has tons of people coming through it so you can easily meet people. It's not a party hostel but that was fine with us. The breakfast is wonderful as well. Clean rooms and facilities with lockers and locks available. We would stay here again.

Niras Bankoc Cultural Hostel says

We have a really distinct style in the hostel that is shown in our building which is over 100 years old. It\'s been well preserved since 1869 and while the charm from the past has been maintained, renovations mean that it has fully modern facilities.
We also have the best gourmet coffee shop in Bangkok! Come and try our winning Thai roasted coffee or our special recipe of Thai milk tea. It\'s delicious.
Many of our guests are travelers seeking to see culture and the local surroundings. From our hostel, you can easily get to all the main sites in Bangkok. There are beautiful temples and museums in our neighbourhood such as the Grand Palace, the Golden Mount, Wat Po, Wat Suthat, and much more! We are just a 15 minute walk from Khaosan Road. I like to think that we\'re in the middle of a \'cultural theme park\' where guests can simply walk to all the sites and enjoy them as if they were in a theme park. Aside from the sites, we\'re surrounded by unique shops, markets, and restaurants with their own recipes. I really recommend \'Thipsamai\' for Pad Thai! We also advise guests to use the canal boats as public transport, as it's cheap fast and fun.
