While I've stayed in some cool hostel before but I must say the image of a cram space, old fashion and unkept hostel do looms by.
But well, in my last trip to Bangkok.. hostel has a new meaning to it. All thanks to Saphaipae which I spent a good few nights.
|Free internet for guests|
|One of the many different sofas at the lounge|
|The many different parts of the lounge and recreational area|
This chic hostel welcomes guests with a large reception lounge cum recreational area with pool tables, sofas and computers with free wifi.
|Me at the bar|
Also at the ground floor is a mini bar that serves drinks.. and at the other corner is a Restaurant. Now, that's like more than what a hostel usually offers ya?
|On the 1st night, I had my very first meal in Bangkok here!|
|The outdoor dining|
|Breakfasts served at the restaurant.. ain't that lovely!|
|I had my fair share of yummy food - breakfasts, lunches and dinners here! I must say I do like their food!!|
I got the private room with attached bathroom. Now, while I was awed with the facilities downstairs, but I wouldn't expect much space in the room.
Owh, how wrong was I! The private room that I stayed was decently huge, and came with windows.
|At one of the corners of the hostel.. just outside my room. So colourful! And I matched it with my Thai pants! haha!|
The deco in the rooms are simple but nice enough. It comes with the basic ammenities like safety box, air cond, bed lamps, TV and coffee and tea set. I must say this is pretty complete - and more than that I'd ask for. It also has a sofa!
|My welcome snack! Very unexpected, but very happy indeed!|
|The bed in the bedroom with table lamps.|
|The attached bathroom looks pretty elegant for a hostel heh?|
|Me taking some shots in the room XD|
|4 to a room don't feel so cram, does it?|
|Good sized lockers are provided in the rooms.|
And owh ya, the shared bathroom thing.. check their bathrooms out! They are huge and clean!
They also have laundry rooms - with washing machines and dryers. Wow, seriously? This hostel sure thinks for the guests! And will be something I would use when I stay longer here in Bangkok!
Truly, like Bangkok, Saphaipae opened my eyes to what's possible - and how far their tourism has come.
All these for still an affordable price!
35 Surasak Road Silom
The hostel is only about 5 mins walk from Surasak BTS.. Which is just 2-3 stops from the heart of Silom!
