Welcome to Born Free Hostel. We are a new, redecorated hostel offering cheap accommodation in the backpacker centre of Bangkok, Samsen/Khao San. We are located near the Chao Phraya river which gives travelers an excellent starting point for cheap self-planned tours throughout the city.

We want you to have fun when you stay with us so we don't really want to have too many rules. But as travelers you will understand that we have to be realistic so here we go :

1.Born Free Hostel has a 48hour (2days) cancellation policy. Guests will be charged the full amount of their stay if their reservation is not cancelled 48h prior to check in time at midday. If you wish to cancel any reservations please cancel through Hosteworld.com, we DO NOT accept FB cancellations. Please send us an email or cancel via the booking engine. Groups of 4 or more need to cancel at least 7 days in advance. Credit cards are not accepted, please pay cash upon arrival!

2.This is a backpacker's/travelers's destination so it is not suitable for children and babies.

3.Born Free Hostel stands for a relaxed atmosphere where travelers can meet and share journeys. We have a few simple house rules and when these are respected everyone will be able to enjoy their time here:

1)For safety reasons we do not allow guests' friends in to the room areas without staff being present. Any guests who wish to bring in friends may do so in the lobby area only.

2)Alcohol, smoking and food (with certain exceptions) is not tolerated within the bed room areas. Bed rooms are a retreat to relax, sleep, enjoy downtime etc.. and not to party!

3)We do not have a curfew hour but we want everyone to have fun, enjoy the movie screen or play games but those relaxing in the rooms need to be respected.

:)

Also please note:

The Born Free family grew. We have 1 Siberian cat guarding the house!!!

***April and May months are hottest and as a result the 10 bed dorm equipped with fans will get warmer***

***Please kindly NOTE that we charge an extra 100THB if you both arrive before 09:00AM or leave after 18:00PM and use our facilities during those hours. Anything between this time frame is free of charge and included in the booking.
We do NOT charge for bag drop off***
Prices are per person per night.

From the airport: You may take a taxi towards Kao San area or Banglampoo. Samsen is a very famous road so most taxi drivers will know where it is. The normal fare from the airport to the city is about 350 - 450THB/taxi. The airport express train may be a cheaper option at 15- 45THB/pers and the exit station is Phaya Thai from which you will have to take a taxi for 60-70THB/taxi or an ongoing Skytrain to Siam square and then buses 47 or 15 into this area. The bus fare is 7THB/pers and exit station will be on Ratchadamnoen rd. next to Kao San rd.
