This hostel looks a bit run down but the vibe is very laid back and the rooftop is just perfect. I’d stay here... more...

The Overstay is family and a place, generations of travelers have met here and we are always getting the family bigger, its a place where you can try new things, learn new skills with people from all over the world. Its not just a hostel but also a music venue with hundreds of bands trying their skills on our solid equipment, its also an art space with all the walls of the 6 stories building covered you can endlessly discover new intimate art and create some of your own! We also have a sweet family of cat and dogs (who live together happily!) they will even follow you to the local grocery store ! The Overstay is in a traditional neighborhood but withint 5 min you can get in the center of Kao san road madness, or visit the numerous temples around : Why not try yourself at Meditation the national center is down the road from us ? or explore some of Bangkok urban ruins, the medical museum (spooky) or run to the park with us !
The Overstay is a unique place made with a lot of love so be prepared to get some !

We are in pinklao not far from the historical center with buses 203 and 56 stoping in front of The Overstay (buses cost typicaly 0.3 USD . we are on the main road of charan sanit wong near and on the same side of the soi 40. you can go on google map and look for the overstay to get a better idea (or print the map)

Tips for people coming from The Suvanaphumi Airport :
For connivance get cab with meter and it should cost no more than 400 THB (12 USD) including the toll way (70 baht).
A nice trick is to go up to the departure level and jump into a cab that just dropped off someone , you save on airport surcharge and no queue.
f you want to save a bit you can take the sky train to victory monument and take the bus 28 to Bang Yi Khan station and you be right there. (3USD all included)

For the super budget people you can take the S1 bus to Kao san road (1 dollar) , then bus 203 to The Bang yi khan station 3 stops)
