I had a great experience staying a month at the Bangkok Bed and Bike!

The place is beautifully decorated, AC acclimatized, good wifi connection, the bed is comfortable and there's a pool table to play at all times.
The owner Effie is caring and committed to the volunteers, to the point that the let the volunteers stay at the hostel even when it was closed during the Covid-19 health crisis.

I'm very thankful for this experience, and so for the great people that I met there!

The bed was really comfortable better than mine in home. Effie the host was welcoming, always easy to talk to if needed. Unfortunately she had to close the hostel at the end of March for a week or so due to the Corona virus situation but she was kind to let us stay in the hostel until the agreed date. The jobs were easy and corresponding to the description so as the working hours. It was my first trip with World packers and I remained content. Thank you all!

Silviya was a sweet and smart lady. She did a great job at the reception. She was thoughtful and trying to learn new things. She was a little quiet but friendly. She was polite and well presented. Recommended!

After spending about 1 month at Bangkok Bed and Bikes, I had the opportunity to meet people from all over the world. The atmosphere is warm and the work at the bar is so cool. I'm going to miss you but I'll be back.

Rudy was very charming and nice to talk to, so we put him at the bar. He did a good job taking care of the customers and the customers love him. He was punctual and well presence with perfume. His English is not A but it's perfect for communication. I'd recommend Rudy to the other host.
