What we say: 4 stars

Hidden away on Charoen Krung Road at the river end of Surawong Road, the New Road Guesthouse has a stack of backpacker friendly rooms spread across two properties that represent excellent backpacker value for this end of town. The guesthouse boasts the cheapest dorms in Bangkok, and while you will find a cheaper dorm of Khao San Road, it wouldn't be a dorm we'd put our dog in, so if you're after the cheapest, habitable digs in Bangkok, head to the New Road Guesthouse. Put together with travellers in mind, there's lots of common area, two bars (including one on the roof) and a lot of quite interesting tour services. All this comes together well to create a comfortable and social atmosphere — ideal for single travellers looking to meet up with others. The double rooms with a private bathroom don't offer quite as good value. They are by no means the worst out there , but they feel expensive when you consider the tiny bathroom and hard mattresses. While it lacks the shine of the new classy hostels popping up across Silom, New Road closes the deal on a fun and sociable backpacker hangout. Very friendly, good fun staff and free WiFi. Recommended.
