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.

- FREE Wi-Fi access

    The Yard was my favorite hostel, not only in Bangkok but in all of Thailand. I felt extremely comfortable and welcomed here. The little touches, like a private window in the dorm bed with a small curtain, made a huge difference. I had a late flight and was able to leave my bags at Reception after checking out, then hang out in the super comfy (and Netflix friendly) living room. The Yard is about a 7-minute walk from the Ari BTS station. I can't recommend this hostel enough!!

    Loved staying here!!! It was a great place to meet other travelers, yet still had a relaxing vibe. It was nice to be away from the craziness of the city, but super accessible to get into it. Stay here!

    The Yard is awesome. It’s like an oasis to return to after a day in crazy Bangkok. The staff is awesome, the travelers who frequent are awesome. Super close to a skytrain stop which makes the city very accessible even though it’s a little farther out. Situated in a nice neighborhood that’s home to a lot of expats and good food. Highly recommend!!

    Absolutely lovely hostel - beautiful rooms, friendly and helpful staff, great communal area and good breakfast. The only drawback is that the Ari neighbourhood, although a nice and relatively calmer part of Bangkok, is quite a long way from the central attractions. Good link to the skytrain so getting around isn’t hard, but expect trips to Wat Po, the Grand Palace etc to take at least an hour by public transport (taxis may be faster).

    Absolutely loved the aesthetics and environment of this hostel. Very helpful and friendly staff and a delicious breakfast and free drinking water provided everyday. Our room was beautiful and spacious and very clean, with great AC even in the heat of the hottest month of the year. The only two drawbacks to this hostel would be: 1. The bathroom is not air-conditioned and can get very hot and humid, and has many mosquitos. 2. The location is far away from most main sights, add an hour for travel.

    This is a really off the beaten path and beautiful hostel. The Ari neighborhood is a hip, young spot that seems to be much less touristy than staying in central Bangkok while still being easily accessed right on the BTS Sky train. The staff is super friendly and sociable and the bar/yard is a great place to all hangout. The rooms themselves though were small and the bathroom was outside and far away so this was disappointing and made the value for money go down in my books

    This hostel is really nice and very clean! They give you a water bottle so you can top your water up through out the day. There are also large lockers to keep your stuff secure. Air conditioning is really good! The free breakfast is also really cute and there are people in the yard socialising and eating breakfast together. Location wise is quite far out, so you may want to choose somewhere else if you want to be more central! Although there’s a train station 10 minutes away.

    Great place for backpackers. Stayed with 4 friends in a private dorm and was great. The location is close to the subway which is nice. A little far from where the action is but not hard to get there. Cool, trendy place. Somewhat pricier then other hostels.
