With limited time, this trip doesn't require much.
I just want to go out and rest like other people.
I'm thinkin ... Oh! Everyone seems to travel at provinces, outside Bangkok.
If I was living in other provinces, where I would wanna travel. It's gotta be Bangkok!
Let me say if you search for information ... you'll know that
Bangkok is such an interesting destination. There are multiple reviews written by foreign tourists.
I think the charms of this city are lots of attractions and activities.
So, this trip I will travel around capital city in relaxed way.
There is one place where chilling traveler gotta like. It is JJ Market.
However, due to hot weather and limited time,
I choose to go at night instead, so I try JJ Green.
What I like the most about this shopping is the pride of our generation.
To see plenty of creative items and services.
And that's why it is called A Cool Night Market in BKK!
What about accommodation?
In order to keep backpack theme, hostel is my answer.
I set budget at THB500 and finally find
'YOO YEN PEN SOOK HOSTEL'.
It is THB490 per person including breakfast, eiei.
YOO YEN PEN SOOK HOSTEL
It has opened less than a month located next to BTS Saphan Kwai station.
From the heart of suburb girl .. I just understand the meaning of condominium next to BTS station!
This place obviously keep original structure of 4 floors commercial building.
Front area is decorated with cute tiny garden. It is fitting with given space.
I have to say the atmosphere instantly change my mood.
It could be because I have faced with jumble all day long.
Once step in, the ambiance unexplainedly helps cooling down.
Interior is outstanding in stylish way.
It combines between vintage, modern, art and little industrial style.
Everything seems contrast but it however doesn't look mismatched at all.
Some corners still keep the old look of commercial building. Very cool.
Let say it well represent delicacy of interior design in each area.
There is only one type of room which is dorm style.
Same as normal hostel, the room is shared with other guests (around 6-8 beds).
Unique point is the beds are not squeezed in the room.
So, I can be laid-back. This is the charm of this hostel!
Warm and homely. Feeling like home.
I get a room on second floor which is pleasing zone for female guests.
For those who are concerned about security, this floor is for LADY ONLY.
If you are afraid of staying at hostel, you can try sharing with girls first.
Another safety is the door using keycard system!
My bedroom consists of 3 bulk beds (6 beds in total).
Each bed is equipped with pillow, blanket and towel.
There is plug at each bedhead (enjoy using WIFI).
And more importantly, there is individual drawer to keep personal belongings.
Talking about toilet and bathroom, they are provided every floor.
Shower and toilet are clearly separated.
Soap, shampoo and hair dryer are also provided. I would say full facility. You only bring you cloth!
Third floor is common area where allows everyone to gather. Kitchen is also on this floor.
Space is quite limited,
so they don't leave it uselessly bare.
Chic wall painting is different in each floor.
The highest impression is breakfast.
It is super delicious as its reputation of Saphan Kwai - Praditpan district.
I try congee which is very tasty. I don't have to add any seasoning sauces.
Moreover, they kindly provide mango with sticky rice to sample. Yippy!
Breakfast menu is not fixed. It mostly rotates.
The food is in Thai style which is a light meal ...
Another impression is the atmosphere.
I really the warm feelings of this place.
It feels like hanging out at my friend's place.
Reminds me of good old time.
In conclusion, I think this hostel is well matched with person who want to travel in Bangkok
but don't want to stay in the city center and still concern about ease of transportation.
As I mentioned earlier, it is connected to BTS which is heavenly convenient for traveling in the city.
No matter you hang out at night market and too lazy to go home,
or you stop by for business. This place is an attractive option.
Lastly .. I want everyone to delete old image of hostel and try!
Every-time I stay at hostel is like exploring the world, haha.
I think I stick to surroundings lesser.
It is to share space and activity with others. So, I have to think of public first.
Also, have a chance to share thoughts, experiences as well as learn new things.
Please come. If you don't have a plan yet, grab you bag now.
Arrange mini trip in the city during weekends.
Try to perceive Bangkok in different way.
You will realize happiness is ... next to you.
