  1. Great hostels listed here. I love to stay in a hostel rather than in a hotel. I appreciate the hostel culture very much, because there are a lot of things to learn from hostel life

  2. Thanks for all the good advices! At the Khao Sok I wpuld like to take the Khao Sok Hostel, but I cant find the exact adress. The adress with google maps is way up north of the Khao Sok village? Where is it really? So you have an exact adress and how can I find it!? Thanks a lot in adcance! Steffie

  3. Great work ! This is really very useful since I am planning my vacation this year to Thailand. I was really worried about accommodation, since if it is not good it can ruin my entire vacation, Hope this reviews is gonna help me a lot. Thank you so much

  4. I’m going on my first solo trip to Thailand in two weeks time and the first hostel that I’ve booked is D-Well Hostel in Chiang Mai so I’m glad it’s made it onto your list!

  9. Great list! Always good to have a bunch of hostels in mind while travelling. We recently discovered another nice hostel in Bangkok called Bewel Hostel – its off Khaosan Road, so its away from the craziness (a 5-10 minute walk away so still reachable on the nights you wanna go out and party) but still in an area near other hostels, cafes, and local eateries – so still a good place to meet other backpackers and have a relaxing good time!

  14. I wish I had this as a reference before we went to SE Asia in 2013, you are right – it is overwhelming. I wasn’t that impressed with our hostel in Chiang Mai, Pai (Craig picked it!) or Bangkok. We stayed with a hotel in Koh Samui and it was lush! Great post.

  15. This is amazing for anyone travelling in Thailand – I’m gonna send it to my brother to help with his upcoming trip (urgh I’m so jealous of him!). I just wish this had been made before I went to Thailand a few years ago!

  16. Man! I wish I had this list 4 years ago when I was in Thailand. I found a good one in Chiang Mai but could have used some recommendations in Koh Phangan. I’ll be sure to look these places up when I go back in a few months!
