Bangkok is a vibrant party city that makes it easy to meet fellow travelers. You will have an amazing time in Thailand's capital, from cool party hostels to vibrant night clubs!
Thailand's capital Bangkok is a popular city among backpackers and digital nomads, do not fear to visit Thailand on your own, I promise you will meet people along the way! The city will never leave you bored, as there is so much to do and explore for anyone's budget. The easiest way meeting fellow travelers is by choosing to stay in a hostel, there is plenty choice if you search online for hostel Bangkok.
This blog post will give you an overview about the best places to stay in Thailand's capital to meet other travelers or make new friends - lets find out, which one is the best party hostel in Bangkok!
Slumber Party Hostel Khaosan Road
Khaosan Road is the biggest backpacker meeting point in Bangkok, and therefore one of the best spots in town to connect with fellow backpackers in Thailand. This street is filled with delicious street food, cheap bars, unique souvenir shops, travel agencies, and plenty of budget friendly hostels to stay. Due to the hot weather I recommend to choose a place with swimming pool so you can chill down after a day of sightseeing.
If you want to experience what a pool party Bangkok feels like, you should check out the Slumber Party Hostel Khao San! Their famous pool parties are happening every day and are free to enter. Drinks are affordable and it's a fantastic place to make new friends too!
The Slumber Party Hostel Khao San is just a few min walk away from Khaosan Road, its located on 81 Mayom (Google Map Link).
Slumber Party Hostel Soi 1
If central location is an important factor to you, you might want to opt for a hostel near BTS (Bangkok Transit System - AKA public transport in Bangkok) - that way you are conveniently located near a train station, which will make it easy for you to hop around and explore Bangkok's sights in a breeze without negotiating with taxi drivers.
I recommend to stay in a hostel near Sukhumvit, which is another popular area in Bangkok for travelers and backpackers. You'll find some of the best night clubs and bars here, entertainment options will be endless! Staying at Slumber Party Hostel Soi 1 is right in the center of Sukhumvit (Google Map Link), the area is filled with busy pubs, extravagant night clubs, and loads of yummy eateries.
Getting around the city will be easy, because public transport is close to the hostel, the nearest stop Phloen Chit is just a few minutes walk away.
Bodega Hostel Bangkok
If you want to stay close to all the action and entertainment, you might look for a hostel in Bangkok city center. I recommend Bodega Bangkok, it's one of the most social hostels in Bangkok! They're located in the heart of Bangkok (Google Map Link), close to public transport, and just a few minutes walk to the famous Soi Cowboy (which was featured in the movie The Hangover).
Within 15 minutes walk (or a quick taxi ride) you'll reach Soi 11, which is another trendy area filled with glitzy rooftop bars, delicious street food, hidden speakeasy bars and vibrant night clubs. Speaking of night clubs, if you want an unforgettable nights out, grab a taxi to RCA (takes about 15 minutes), this area is packed with clubs and night goers!
Bodega Hostel Bangkok offers a variety of parties and activities, every day of the week to bring travelers and backpackers together! It's a perfect social setting where you can meet like-minded people who like to connect, dine, drink, shop and explore Bangkok with you.
And speaking of shopping, another thing that can't be missed is a visit to Chatuchak Weekend Market, the world's largest weekend market with over 15,000 stalls and shops. Even if you don't need anything, trust me, you won't come home empty handed! And even if you don't want to shop, the street food alone makes it worth to go there! Enjoy!
It should go without saying that Bangkok is a vibrant party city that makes it easy to meet new people. You will undoubtedly have an amazing time in Thailand's capital, from the cool party hostels to the dance floors! I promise you will have loads of fun and make new friends in no time!
I hope you enjoyed this little guide on Bangkok's best party hostels and places to meet fellow travelers and I hope we'll run into each other next time I'm there. Happy travels!
