Yim Yam, meaning “warm smile,” was the brainchild of three brothers with the desire to encourage visitors to experience the exotic culture and famous hospitality of Thailand.

We offer a comfortable and social experience designed to make you feel right at home! Our spacious, air-conditioned dorms feature comfortable beds with lights, outlets, and privacy curtains. Our private and semi-private rooms offer hotel-level luxury at a fraction of the hotel price! Our backyard garden is a green oasis in the middle of the city and our stylish cafe is a great place to drink a beer or Thai iced coffee with your new friends from around the world!

We are only 2 blocks away from the BTS Skytrain station Ratchethewi. 1 stop away is Siam, the city center featuring numerous shopping centers, restaurants, and famous attractions. The BTS system can take you all over the city to the airport, markets, riverboats, and more! We are also only a short bus or taxi ride from Chinatown and Khao San Road. Within walking distance are great restaurants, grocery stores, and the famous Neon Market.

We look forward to accommodating you in the near future and welcoming you to the hostel of smiles.
