Why Mad Monkey is the Best Place to Stay in

Bangkok

Why Stay at Mad Monkey Hostel Bangkok?

Mad Monkey Hostel Bangkok Thailand is a new addition to our Mad Monkey fleet of hip and happening backpackers resorts and the first Mad Monkey in Thailand.  The newly refurbished hostel boasts a large swimming pool next to the canal. For accommodations we offer a host of upscale private twin and double rooms with en suite bathrooms, as well as small mixed and female-only dorm rooms kitted out with all the best features: individual charging points, private lockers, reading lights, air conditioning, en suite bathrooms, and tons of space in each bunk.

Mad Monkey is more than just a Bangkok party hostel. We’re set up to be one of the best social stays in Bangkok with lots of common spaces, a large restaurant and bar, a swimming pool, and excellent facilities for the discerning backpacker. Our focus every step of the way as we built this hostel has been to provide a great social experience for our customers in a comfortable and safe environment.

As with all Mad Monkey Hostels, we provide a female friendly / LBGT friendly / everyone else friendly vibe. This is one of the best hostels in Bangkok for solo travelers to meet, mix, and mingle. On any given day we’re full of a diverse crowd from around the world, and everyone is keen for new friends.

Don’t just take our word for it! You will find all of our hostels are highly rated on Hostelworld, TripAdvisor, Google, Facebook, and wherever else reviews can be left. Our mission is to give you the best stay possible while you’re with us, while also benefiting the local community as much as we can. We never stop until we’ve achieved both goals.

Hostel Close to Khao San Road and the Bangkok Backpackers Area

Mad Monkey is located in Rambuttri village which is just next door to to the busy Bangkok backpackers’ area of Khao San Road. Our hostel is just a 5 minute walk away from Khao San Road itself, the hub of the backpacking universe. Unlike many of the Khao San Road hostels though, we are tucked away just far enough from all of the Bangkok nightlife craziness that you can get a sound sleep in our comfortable rooms.

All of Bangkok’s most popular attractions are close to our hostel. Within walking distance, you’ve got the National Gallery, Bang Lamphu Market, the National Museum, the National Gallery, the National Theatre, Sanam Luang Park, Khao San Road, and tons of amazing cafes and street food stalls. We can also give you directions and hook you up with a tuk-tuk or taxi if you want to venture slightly further out. A few minutes’ ride away you’ll find the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, and several other temples, markets, shopping malls, and so on. In fact, our friendly team is full of recommendations for Bangkok nightlife and shopping opportunities – again, all conveniently located right in our neighbourhood.

So if you came to this page via a search for “where to stay in Khao San Road”, we suggest re-jigging your plan slightly. Stay with us, just a couple minutes’ walk away from Khao San, but in a beautiful and safe area of Bangkok. You’ll have your own pool and pleasant surroundings, plus you can enjoy the social and party hostel vibe that Mad Monkey is famous for across Southeast Asia.

Mad Monkey Bangkok

How To Get To Our Hostel

Our hostel is located right in the heart of the action for backpackers in Bangkok. We’re minutes away from the legendary Khao San Road. The hostel itself sits on a peaceful bend of Phra Sumen Road, though, overlooking the canal and a few metres from a historic fort and a peaceful park on the Phra Sumen River.

Our vibrant neighbourhood is full of restaurants, cafes, shops, convenience stores, and more – anything you’re looking for can be found within walking distance.

From Suvarnabhumi Airport

  • By Taxi: Give the driver Mad Monkey’s address (included below in English and Thai). Make sure you take a taxi with a running meter. This will work out to cost less than a set fee. Taxi drivers only accept THB currency, and do not take credit cards, so withdraw money at the airport if you don’t have any yet. The total price on the meter will not include the airport surcharge and toll fees (if you take a route with tolls).
  • By Airport Rail Link: This is a cheap way to get into the city. The Airport Rail runs from 6:00am to 12:00 midnight. A train arrives at the airport every 10-15 minutes. Take the City Line. Get off at Phaya Thai BTS Station. From Phaya Thai you can (1) take a taxi or tuk-tuk to Mad Monkey (see our address below) or (2) take Bus #59 to Khao San (Khok Wua Junction on Ratchadamnoen Klang Rd), then walk from Khan San Road to Mad Monkey (about 10 minutes).

From Don Mueang Airport

Don Mueang Airport is not connected to any of the rail lines, so you’ll need to take a taxi or the bus.

More useful words in Thai:

Khao San Road    =      ถนนข้าวสาร
Phra Athit Road    =      ถนนพระอาทิตย์
Phra Sumen Road      =      ถนนพระสุเมรุ
Phra Sumen Fort        =      ป้อมพระสุเมรุ
Khok Wua Junction     =      สี่แยกคอกวัว

Things to note:

* The bus system in Bangkok is very complicated. The most important thing is to make sure you get on the bus on the correct side of the road, so that you’re heading in the right direction. When you board the bus, tell the driver where you want to get off and they’ll signal you when it’s your stop. If you get lost, it’s easiest to get in a taxi.

** Note that some bus lines do not run all night.

*** Phra Suman Road is sometimes also referred to as Phra Athit Road – if your taxi or tuk-tuk driver says this, it’s okay.

****If you make it as far as Khao San Road but you’re not which direction to go to find Mad Monkey, ask someone local which direction Phra Sumen Fort (Pom Phra Sumen) is in – Mad Monkey is just down the street from the fort, away from the river.
