More on Phetchaburi

Located across the road from the entrance to Phra Nakhon Khiri Historical Park, Ferngully is a small hostel with a welcoming vibe and cheap air-con dorms.

Travelfish says:

It greets you with tables, lockers, high ceilings, a large map painted on a wall, bicycles and a kitchenette with microwave and coffee/tea facilities in a ground-floor common room. Speaking fluent English, owner Fern also offers a rooftop common space with a miniature Eiffel Tower along with a few other spots where you can lounge and use the free WiFi.

Available in mixed and women-only, the air-con dorm rooms are set beside ample shared bathrooms divided by gender and with multiple hot-water shower stalls and basin sinks raised off brushed concrete surfaces. Each bunk comes with reading lamp, electrical outlet and large locker, and lower bunks have privacy curtains as well. Most are set up head-to-head but close friends or partners might prefer the ones placed side by side. There’s also a private quad room that represents very good value, though it’s usually full.

The location is great if you prefer to be close to the historical park and don’t mind a kilometre walk or bike ride east to the river and night market. Lots of monkeys hang around this area so keep a firm grasp on your things when going outside. While they occasionally climb on the building, fencing placed on windows and over the rooftop chill space keeps them from coming inside.

We really liked the vibe and location of Ferngully, but you’ll also find clean bunks along with more out-of-the-way locations at Mayom Hostel and Chedi View Hostel.
