A one-minute hop from Ratchathewi BTS station, Monomer Hostel occupies a converted shophouse with modern facilities and a welcoming staff. Though not as big as neighbouring Bed Station Hostel, Monomer has a more homely atmosphere and comparable dorms for less money.




Dorms come in 12-bed and six-bed mixed and female-only varieties, all set in long and narrow rooms with bunks set in shelf configurations stretching towards windows at one end. Dark-blue walls are placed between the head and feet portions of every comfortable bunk, each with a personal reading lamp, outlet, privacy curtain and locker.

We dig the minimilist vibe.

Shared bathrooms with hot water are situated on every floor, within steps of the dorm rooms, and come with rain shower heads. Sinks are set out in the open overlooking a window. While very clean, the rather tight quarters only allowed for a few shower and toilet stalls on each floor, so you might have to wait at the busiest times. All rooms are accessed by narrow stairs, with privates on the upper floors requiring a four-floor climb.

The private double room that we checked out was small but inviting, a king-size mattress set on the floor, large windows and small ensuite bathroom. We were told that larger private rooms are also available, though we weren’t given an exact price on those. All rooms and common areas are air-conditioned, and every corner of the building appeared immaculate.

The ground-floor reception area doubles as a common room with two shared computers (WiFi is free), a sofa and long communal table where guests can have an included breakfast of toast, biscuits, fresh fruit, coffee and tea. There’s also a shared kitchen if you want to prepare your own meals. On the second floor is a small living room with more sofas, beanbag chairs and a large LCD TV on the wall. Post-it notes that were handwritten by happy guests are a nice touch.

While you’ll surely meet other guests and chat with the friendly young staff, neighbouring Bed Station has a bar and is probably the better choice if you’re after a more social hostel with a more business-like staff. Siam Journey is a cheaper option in this general area if you’re looking to meet and mix, while Cloudy Hostel is another good option for more quiet-minded travellers.

Definitely a solid choice.

Monomer enjoys an excellent location on a side lane that loops between Phetchaburi and Phaya Thai roads, a stone’s throw from the Skytrain and loads of good street food at places like Krua Muang Ling and the stalls on Phetchaburi Soi 10. Siam Square and Pratunam are both a 10-minute walk away, and the nearby Hua Chang khlong boat pier can shoot you straight to Khao San Road and Rattanakosin.
