During our trip to Thailand, we spent the first two nights at Pridi Hostel Bangkok. We were supposed to stay in a dorm-type room, but we upgraded to a private room since there was one available. The room is equipped with a working air conditioner, towels, a small table, two stools, a trash can, and a towel rack. The room we had also came with a small balcony overlooking the road. The manager of Pridi Hostel is a traveler who was inspired by the hotels he stayed at in different countries. So each floor design is inspired by a different architecture.
Upon check-in, they gave us two keys: one for our room and one for the back door. They staff locks up at 9:00 P.M. Guests who go out or come back later than that use the back door.
Free breakfast is toast, jam, butter, and a choice of tea or coffee. There is a lounge on the second floor with a TV, DVD player, and computer. On our second night at Pridi Hostel, we watched the Merchant of Venice; they had the CD. There are bottles of free shampoo and conditioner in the bathrooms. The hot/cold shower works perfectly. There is a CR, wash area, bathroom, and laundry facility per floor. Guests can hang clothes out to dry on the rooftop. It has a nice view of the vicinity.
I have a lot of good things to say about our 1D2N stay at Pridi Hostel Bangkok. Although if I had to say something negative, it would be that some customers may not like that they have to climb many flights of stairs to get to their room, especially if they have a lot of heavy luggage. Aside from that, the facilities are great.
My sister and I highly recommend Pridi Hostel. Nui, the owner/manager, and his sister Nalin are wonderful people. We are still very grateful for all the help they gave us during our brief stay in Bangkok.
