Pleasant stay at The Blocks Hostel, Sukhumvit Bangkok

Hello! Back here to blog about the hostel where I am staying in Bangkok. I was really looking forward to our 4 nights stay because most of the backpacker travellers were raving about this hostel. Therefore, I was wondering, is that really so good?

The Blocks Hostel at Sukhumvit, Bangkok. Fall in love at the first sight when I saw the loft design.






TV lounge area.



Free laundry but you are required to pay for the detergent. 


Elevator in the hostel so need not to worry about carrying your heavy luggage up to your room. 



Triple room that we booked. Around RM89 after 16% tax from Agoda. 




Rooftop area to chill at night. 


Here's the pros and cons,

1. Comfy and clean bed linen.
2. Strong AC and high water pressure.
3. Toiletries (soap and shampoo) is provided.
4. Excellent location. The Blocks Hostel is located between Nana and Asoke BTS station (5 mins walking distance to each station) and 5 to 10 mins walking distance to Terminal 21 (Asoke BTS station).
p/s If you happen to go Terminal 21, please try out Pad Thai at food court, it is awesome!
5. Price is reasonable. RM89 for a triple room.
6. They provide king size mattress and the bed is so comfy!
7. They gave us triple room with window that we requested.

1. Wifi is quite weak in our room at level 1. It always disconnect. Anyway, we have bought sim card so issue solved for wifi!
2. They never reply my email even though I have sent in twice.

All in all, I will recommend this if you are looking for budgeted hostel and expecting for a pleasant stay. You can read through other travellers' comments on Agoda and Trip Advisor.
