SE Asia Trip Series (Day 6): Refill Now Hostel, Bangkok

02.27.09 Being on a budget tour, we decided to stay in a hostel. We booked for 2 nights at Refill Now Hostel. The hostel is a white modern building situated in a quiet residential area on Sukhumvit 71. The building has floor to ceiling glass windows which lets the natural daylight illuminate every area. Everything is painted in white which creates a relaxing feel.

 refill bunkbeds

This was my first time to experience sleeping in a room abroad, bunk bed style. The dorm has 3 bunk beds which can accommodate 6 persons.  There are blinds on each side of the beds to give you some privacy. Like in our case, we requested that the room be exclusive for the 4 us. They just simply pulled down the blinds to separate us from the other person occupying the bed next to us.

Each one of us were assigned with lockers big enough to store our luggage.

My verdict:

Facilities: Excellent
Price: Very good (a bit pricey for a hostel)
Location: Satisfactory (no nearby shopping areas, 10-minutes drive to the nearest train station)
