The Hostelz.com Review

Born Free Hostel is a solid hostel in the heart of Bangkok, but it's outside the lively tourist areas of Chinatown or Khao San Road. We stayed here two nights and then moved up the road to be closer to the action.

The Location

It's off the main road, so it is quite quiet and peaceful, but it is about ten minutes' walk from Khao San Road, the site of all the backpacker action in this part of town. It is a little hard to find, because most tuk-tuk drivers don't know where it -- or the little street it is on -- is. You need to show on a map or ask for the main street and then they can find it. There is normally a food stand right next to it, which is great for breakfast.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Everything is very basic and not overly clean, but this hostel is the standard in Thailand. The showers and bathrooms are very simple and shared among a lot of people. The rooms are ok but there is not much room for luggage. The beds are quite comfy and big, but the dorms are large and it's in the centre of Bangkok -- meaning people go to bed throughout the night. There are lockers outside the rooms that are not very big and you need a padlock. The beds in the fan rooms do (mostly) have a personal fan by the bed. There are AC rooms, which are nice during the hot months, but they are quite a lot more expensive.

Common Spaces

The common room is basically an elongated reception, but it does have nice pillows and mats on which you can chill. It's quite a small area with no bar or anything. The atmosphere is quite quiet -- there were only a few other guests when we arrived -- but it does liven up in the evenings and we met a few other people with which to have a drink.

Summary

They have bus and train tickets available for a small fee and organise taxis and alike from reception. There are a few cafes down the little street that are cheap and useful. It is reasonable to get from the airport via metro and then tuk-tuk. The staff are reasonably helpful but not overly friendly.

Probably the best Hostel in Bangkok

After trying out two other hostels in Bangkok I found this hostel in one of the best areas. (Near all the tourist stuff, but not right into it). The stuff and the owner (Kevin) make you feel very welcome. The Hostel offers a great chillout area where you can get in touch with the other guests. The Dorm room was good sized and very clean. I recommended this hostel already after my visit to other travelers and nobody got disappointed.

Great hostel in the heart of Bangkok

I stayed at Born Free twice, once in February and once in October and both times I had a blast. Kevin makes you feel straight at home, the beds are big and comfy and it's quiet around the hostel. It's also a quick five minute walk to Khaosan Road. While there you should also take the bicycle ride around Bangkok at night. All around great place to stay, good wifi, great lounge to watch movies and talk in and it's clean!
