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)

Do you? You ask for someone in Bkk to call them for you lol
Hotel policy is up to them not any of us. Must be your first trip anywhere.

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.

Your problem not ours. People on here give advice, not book your hotels. That is what travel agents do.

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...
Thank you Somtam2000,
Your suggestion makes a LOT of sense. Guess I'll stay in town from where I can get transport.
