On my last visit to Bangkok I stayed at the amazing HQ Hostel. Is time around however I decided to give another place a go and opted for something closer to Koh San, as my time in the Thai capital was slightly more limited.

On recommendation from a travel buddy I opted for Nap Park – and wasn’t disappointed.

Located just two road parallel to Koh San it’s withing stumbling distance of the backpacker bars, but removed enough for a good nights kip. This means the surrounding area is filled with restaurants, street food, markets and everything you need to sample Bangkok.

I was lucky enough to score a free upgrade (just by chance may I add, no travel blogger privileges here!) and stayed in a 6 bed dorm with en suite.

The rooms themselves are air con, with large individual lockers capable of storing a solid sized rucksack or two, and the adjoining bathroom was spacious and clean.

The beds were almost mini pods – each with an individual TV, power outlets and curtain for privacy, all of which allowed for a good nights sleep.

You can’t really argue with the facilities either – a large common area which plays movies all day (a great place to mong out after a heavy night), free wifi throughout, and a small outside area which sells food/beer/drinks at reasonable prices.

The hostel staff were super friendly, helpful and the whole place had a really good vibe.

Price wise it’s not the cheapest you’ll find in Asia – with the cheapest dorm starting at around £8 per night, but if you’re bouncing out of Bangkok after a few days of landing it’s a great introduction to Thailand and the perfect place to rest your head, get over your jetlag or party hard!

The only thing it really lacked was a good tour booking service, but there are plenty of places around to do this and the staff are more than happy to point you in the right direction.

Definitely recommended.

 

Facilities – 4/5

Value – 3/5 (for Thailand it’s not the cheapest!)
