Planning to experience Bangkok, Thailand and its centuries-old cultural values and traditions without breaking the bank? We’ve got you!
Selecting accommodations is very personal. We know that there are different types of travelers these days – some of us want to just chill, meet new friends, and discover the place through good food and interesting places, while the others prefer to either party or live outside the city!
So there comes an important decision to make when choosing a place to stay – do you want one that’s hip or would you rather live in a place where the party doesn’t stop?
For many, where they stay while on vacation can make or break the whole experience! That’s why this Thailand Travel Guide takes all factors into consideration and provides you with options that suits your personality!
FOR THE HIPSTER TRAVELER: The Yard Hostel
Urban Dictionary’s description of the word “hipster” is this: people who value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter.
Sounds like you? Then we definitely recommend The Yard!
No need to leave the hipster in you at home, be one of the family at The Yard. In Thai, ‘yard’ means relative and that’s how you’ll feel when staying here. Environmentally conscious, The Yard is constructed from shipping containers and reclaimed materials. But that doesn’t mean the amenities are less quality – in fact, reviews tell us that this hostel has *super* comfy beds & an amazing service! Choose from private accommodations for four to dorm living. Onsite facilities include washers and dryers, breakfast, free wi-fi, BBQ equipment and more.
PS: It’s affordable and near Ari Station so you can go anywhere without the hire tuktuks all the time! This is why The Yard is the top choice of many hipsters!
PPS. Did I mention they let you use their bikes for free?!

You’re here to do more than lounge in a hotel room, and Aloft Bangkok has you covered there as well. It’s only steps from the best shopping, nightlife, and dining destinations. It’s a quick 5-minute walk to Nana BTS Skytrain and the MRT Subway stations. Too tired to walk? Take the free TUK-TUK shuttle instead.
