Property Description

The yard is an ecological hostel in Ari, and we social hostel but not party hostel.

The yard is an eco hostel in Ari, which is in the centre of Bangkok. We have guests from all over the world who generally want to relax in a peaceful environment and plan their travels. One thing that makes our hostel different (from your typical hostel) is that we aim to reduce our ecological impact as much as possible.

When we designed the hostel we took our impact on the environment into consideration. For example, we used recycled materials to build the rooms, which are actually old shipping containers. We also insulated the rooms with recycled paper to reduce energy consumption from air conditioning. Another way we reduce our impact is by using less plastic. For instance, we don’t sell plastic bottles of water and we encourage guests to refill their bottles.

The aims of the hostel are represented by the company name. In English yard means an open space next to a house. However, in Thai, yard means family. Therefore, we are aiming to provide a living space which has a warm friendly feeling, like a family. We want to bring people together so they can share stories, make connections, and learn about sustainable ways of living.

If you are looking for your home in Thailand. Please come to The Yard and be family.

    This was a wonderful hostel. I had had such a stressful day and was so thankful to end up at this beautiful calm relaxing place. It has everything you need and the atmosphere is perfect. I think it draws a really nice crowd because as soon as I walked in everyone staying there seemed to stop their conversations and turn and say hi, like nothing I have experienced at any hostel. I only wish I had gotten to stay longer! If I come back to Bangkok I will definitely be returning.

    Loved my stay at The Yard. The Ari neighborhood feels a world away from the usual and the staff are always super helpful. Great place if you want to chill instead of party. Lots of beautiful cafes around, easy connectivity to the BTS, and clean. Will stay here again.

    The Yard has their sh*t together. The dorms are clean and beautifully decorated, the staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgable, the provided breakfast is delicious and wholesome, and they've really thought through every last detail to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The only thing I'd call out is that the Ari neighborhood is a little far from some of the main tourist attractions in Bangkok, but that's exactly why I chose it. It provides a peaceful escape from the craziness.

    The Yard was my first ever hostel experience and I absolutely adored it. The place is so nice, the atmosphere of it is so chill and social. Location is pretty good, not too far from everything. The staff was so nice there and the food is pretty good too. Would highly recommend The Yard to anyone out there

    Super social hostel. Staff are lovely and very welcoming. It’s a little further out from all the sites, so if you are only there for a short time like I was then it wasn’t ideal, but the sky train is close so not that big of a deal if you’re there longer!
