Dorms are a tough sell in a town where you can still find a private fan room for 100 baht, but No. 25 Hostel does a good job if you’re after a clean air-con bunk or private room with perhaps more of a social scene.

The hostel is set in a converted two-storey white brick-and-concrete house set back from Mae Nam Khwae Road on a side lane—no river setting here. A simple ground-floor lounge has a couple of complimentary shared computers, sofas and tables for chatting with other travellers. No. 25 also doubles as a cafe serving fresh coffee and burgers to a small terrace out by the road. WiFi and breakfast are free, staff is helpful and bicycles are available.

Four-bed mixed dorms are cramped and basic, with large lockers, thin mattresses on steel frames and personal reading lamps and electrical outlets installed in every bunk. These are situated on the ground floor, steps away from a shared hot-water bathroom and a short stroll down a hall from four more bathroom stalls. Small private rooms on the second floor were full; we were told they come with ensuite bathrooms, lockers, big windows and double beds.

In the common room we encountered a couple of Japanese travellers who were quick to spark up a conversation. They helped to show us why anyone would stay here over one of the cheap guesthouses: a more intimate atmosphere that makes it hard not to meet other guests.

If you don’t mind an out-of-the-way location in exchange for a riverside setting, D Hostel is another dorm option set at the south end of town on the west bank.
