    Budget accomodation

    Howdy

    I will be coming to Bangkok early July and am wondering what sort of prices I can expect to pay without prior reservation

    I'm coming with two friends and we're all on a strapped budget and as far as I'm aware there is no camping close enough to bangkok

    I'm looking for the cheapest possible room
    Any reccomendations?

    thanks!



    edit: is it cheaper to pay weekly? will be staying two weeks if thats any help?

    Find Lumpini park wrecked but GH are from 100 baht for roo with fan and a rat or 10oooo at the Oriental and everything in between suggest Banglampoo KS Rd suit your budget
    Real bums sleep on beaches parks wats etc
    all prices negotiabe
    PS As there may be a civil war aftermath could you bring me some Pimms no 1 coup in your helmet and some fresh currency as the ATMs may have run dry when the last foreigner leaves.
    From September you can camp in our garden my wife insists backpackers bathe regularly even weekly if necessary.Don't buy any baht yet it sure to fall around the coup.

    PS I realise a menhir to big for bagpackers but a sensitiely removed chunk of the heelstone be just right park me bike
    chok dee you may find more practical info on travellers boards e.g

    I've never rented something in Khaosan road but it's well known for cheap rooms in the area.

    I alway stayed near soi Ngam Duplee in Soi Saphan Khu (off Soi Sri Bamphen) and there is plenty of cheap rooms in the area .

    You could still find something under 200 bahts. 3-4 years ago I've rented a room for 100 bahts at Madam guesthouse Madame Guesthouse, 11 Soi Saphan Khu, Off Soi Sri Bamphen, Bangkok, Bangkok - Thailand guesthouse review by Travelfish.. Very basic but they have some better rooms on the 1st floor where I stayed for months many times before.There is also a restaurant open 24 hours and a cafe-bar just 50m away.

    At the end of the same soi you'll find the Sala guesthouse Sala Thai Daily Mansion, Soi Saphan Khu 15 (off Soi Sri Bamphen), Bangkok, Bangkok - Thailand guesthouse review by Travelfish.. The Lee4 is at the beginning of the same soi but I don't recommend it, very unfriendly staff.

    Very quiet area and not far from Lumpini, Sathorn, Silom and a 50 baht ride with a taxi to Sukhumvit. Just visit the guesthouses in the area, ask the price and have a look at the room, you'll maybe find something cheap that suit your needs.

    Avoid the Malaysia hotel unless you're gay.

    dont chase him off, at least the members here will give him real infomation.

    There is a small backpacker style place on sukhumvit soi 11 (behind cheap charlies bar) but that's about 600 baht per night.

    Why not try the "couchsurfing" website?
    You may be able to get a room for a few nights here and there (for free), then with the money you save you can either up your budget or have another beer or two at night.
    I have never done or met anybody who has "couchsurfed", but maybe worth a look at the site?
    Goodluck.

    I see you are english or from the UK at least so you will not be wanting a room with a bath or shower, which is good because that will save you a few baht then.

    May I suggest The Dripping Labia Bar off Sukhumvit Soi 7. Ask for Mohommad. They have rooms without a bath or shower. The mama sun can hook you up with a phu ying for the one low price of 1500 baht, condoms not included.

    If that does sound a bit pricey, there is always the Nana Hotel but bring a barrel of insecticide and your own sheets {the ones they use are a little sticky}.

    Sounds like just the sort of high end tourist that Thailand is reaching out to.

    Not usless for me. I see a relation. If not I would not post.
    Seems from your post Khao San Road is a cheap place to stay in BKK. I Never stayed there too so I want to know if it is true what I heard before. ...to not rent something there cause it is more expensive than other places in BKK.

    BTW: sorry for my bad english KW.
