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.
Our yard provide
- FREE Wi-Fi access
- 24/7 check-in and out
- Bicycle (Free of charge)

    One of the best hostels I have ever been at! What a gem! I unfortunately had only one night, less than 24h but I loved the design, the eco-friendly approach and the greenery a lot. And it's so well maintained for a 3 year old property!

    Yeah, really nice little spot. Has the feel of an oasis in the city, little space to breath and rest after enjoying the hectic bustle of the city. Staff here are great, super clean rooms, good wifi, good coffee, close to BTS skytrain Ari station, hostel loans little locks for in-room lockers, and the hostel seems to attract pretty chill, nice, relaxed travelers.

    This was my first home for a 5 month trip. It is everything you read in reviews and an AMAZING place to stay. Awesome people - like attracts like. It’s a little off the beaten path, but I think in this case that’s okay. Ari is a little bohemian neighborhood. The people, the staff, and quality of the place make it worth it. Go to laliart for coffee!!

    The Yard is the perfect stop for backpackers. It is the perfect combo of stellar location, community and beautiful facilities. The bathrooms get pretty steamy because there’s no ac but that comes with the territory when in Thailand. No complaints here though! I loved sitting at the bar and eating breakfast each morning. Can’t wait to come back!

    The Yard was fantastic! The outdoor space made meeting people very easy, and the breakfast was delicious. I liked the free yoga class. My only complaints are that the rooms were a little small (got tight when they were full and everyone had bags/suitcases out), and that the yard space has lots of mosquitos - bring bug spray! Otherwise, a really great vibe, highly recommend.

    Had a wonderful time staying at the yard backpackers. Met a lot of extremely interesting people during my stay! This was the first hostel I really talked to my room-mates and they were all so friendly and hearing their stories were so cool. There’s an easy-going vibe about the place which I enjoyed as well. The staff were great - they helped me book a tour to Ayutthaya. The skytrain is also super close so easy to get around too. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay! Would stay here again

    Could tell that place has lots of potential but I was unfortunate to have been here when the place was booked out to a french school trip that was absurdly noisey and couldnt sleep till 2am due to banging doors and shouting through paper thin walls. Also meant I didnt meet many young travellers. Breakfast above average. Good links to BTS. V comfortable and stylish space. Be wary of lots of mosquitoes in yard at dusk.
