I have a flight at 6:20 a.m from DMK.
Does anyone know of a budget accommodation for backpackers.
Dorm with shared toilet will do too.
I want to spend about 500 THB and we are three!
I shortlisted We Train International House and they have accommodation of 6 beds in a dorm at 900 THB but they are force feeding me to accept another room with 3 beds.
Can anyone living in Bangkok, call them and help me book 3 beds with them?
Their address and number are as follows:501/1 Dechatungka Road, Don Muang,, Bangkok, 10210 | 02 967 8550
there is not. We-tr is also not at all ''closeby''-you will always need an taxi to get there and out and these are scarce as not on main road.(discrimination-though much less as you yourself are likely doing) may also play a role. Thai facts.

If I need a taxi to get to We-Train and also walk till main road to flag a taxi to the airport at 4:30 a.m. in the morning, then I don't think We-Train is such a good option. Can you suggest something else more on the main line than interiors and somewhere within 10 kms of DMK? Or do you have any other idea? What should I do?
I only asked Captain to suggest. Where does it say I asked anyone to book for them. Your name sounds English but do you understand any?
It appears you did not understand the OP. I have booked 3 beds in a dorm with we-train but they are not giving the same to me in a room with 6 beds although that is available. They are forcing me to accept a dorm with 3 beds. I asked a Thai based person to help! (help is different from book, hope you will agree)
The accommodation I have requested for is available. Hotel does not say they wont give it to me. They just don't respond and keep telling me to take the expensive option.
I have been a Destination Expert on another site.
On one occasion I went to the Railway counter and purchased railway tkts for an elderly couple from England and couriered it to them.
On another, I drove 20 miles in another city 200 miles from my home and organized dates for the train called palace on wheels for a group of tourists from UK.
I am Indian and by nature VERY helpful.
I believe that what goes around comes around and I enjoy helping travellers.
Its ok if you don't wish to help. You don't have to.
In India making a call cost 1 paise per second i.e. equal to 6000 minutes for every dollar.
There is no cost or time involved.
Infact it takes longer to write replies.
If you can't/don't want to help why on earth are you posting on this thread except to ridicule the OP?
Wait don't answer that question - and don't post in this thread again. Thanks.
Vaishali Agoda has a bunch of places near Don Muang but I'd be wary of what you get for 500 baht around there - I spent 600baht there a few weeks ago for a hotel (Max One) that was supposedly close to the airport - took a cab an hour to find it - and finding a taxi in the morning when I was leaving at 3am was a nightmare. I'd be inclined to spend more and stay closer to airport, or stay cheap and go into town. Phra Nakorn Grand View just south of the airport is supposed to be ok...
