It is no secret that Bangkok is a great destination for Backpackers and budget travelers, and not only for those who are interested in the Thai capital’s amazing nightlife. Bangkok has plenty of cultural and historical attractions to keep any traveler busy, and many of them are luckily free. Street food is abundant in Bangkok, and you can grab a delicious and filling meal on the street for very affordable prices. But what about accommodation, which is usually the money drainer when it comes to traveling? Well, there are so many budget accommodation options in Bangkok that you will have a hard time choosing! But if you want to make sure that you get the best possible value for money, here is some of the best budget accommodation in Bangkok.

HQ Hostel, Silom Road

HQ Hostel is slightly more upscale than your run of the mill hostel, and while single rooms can cost you as much as $50, a bed in a dorm room will be less than $15. Even if you book the cheapest bed they have, you can take advantage of all the facilities of the hostel – why are many! This is one of the best equipped hostels in Bangkok: you get free wi-fi internet, lockers for your stuff, TV, neverending supply of free coffee and even a small library!

The main draw of Suk 11 is its unusual style – it looks like a cross between a tree-house in the jungle, and traditional Thai homes! Despite its quaint decor, the hostel doesn’t lack any modern facilities. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the setting is very peaceful – great for some restful sleep after a night of partying. Plus, the rates are extremely affordable: a single room for less than $20!

Take a Nap Hotel, Rama 4 Rd, Suriyawongse

This centrally located hotel is one of the most comfortable places to stay in Bagkok. It is clean, pretty small (about 30 rooms), and it has a stylish decor (pop art prints and vividly colored walls). The rooms are all decorated in a different way, but they are all equally functional and pleasant. The hotels is located at the heart of Silom district, close to shops, clubs, attractions and public transport.

Lub D Hostel

Lub D (meaning sleep well), is one of the most pristine and stylish hostels you will ever come across. The hostel has two locations in Bangkok, one in Siam Square, and another one in Silom. The rooms have a unique look (the furniture is color-coordinated!), and you can book double, twin and dorm style rooms, as well as women-only rooms.
