Hostel Review: Kawin Place Guesthouse in Khaosan Road

Finding accommodations in Khaosan is one worry off your back. You have a lot of options depending on your budget and room preferences.

On my last visit there, I stayed in Kawin Place located at the heart of Khaosan, and when you say “it’s at the heart of Khaosan”, it means it’s near 7 Eleven, money changers, night market and pubs.

Shiny wooden floors and clean comfort rooms are being maintained by the Thai cleaners. CCTV cameras are also set up in each floor of the 3-storey building. As with all other hostels in Khaosan, you have to leave your slippers or shoes outside when entering (don’t worry, I didn’t lose my slippers when I stayed for 3 days). This hostel does not accept Thai guests.

Here are the room rates:

  • Single Fan Room (shared bathroom) – 250 Baht
  • Twin Fan Room (shared bathroom) – 350 Baht
  • Single Air-conditioned Room (shared bathroom) – 350 Baht
  • Twin Air-conditioned Room (shared bathroom) – 450 Baht
  • Twin Air-conditioned Room (private bathroom) – 550 Baht
  • Triple Air-conditioned Room (shared bathroom) – 600 Baht

Additional notes:

  • The price above includes toilet paper and towels.
  • They require 600 Baht deposit upon check-in.
  • Baggage deposit charge is 10 Baht per day per item.
  • For additional guest on any room type, charge is 100 Baht (they do not have extra bed)
  • There is 600 Baht key-lost charge if you lost the key and 1000 Baht charge for the safety box key.

      1. I’m here right now. Paying half what I was around the corner and it’s a better room. Location is awesome.

  1. Hi Gail! I guess I’m a bit late for making comments on this post.. 🙂 but I have one thing to ask.. I was at the Kawin Place in 2008 and I met a couple there.. they were working, on stalls.. the man was selling backpacks, the girl hand made costume jewelery.. Did you see them ? I’m asking because we were friends and I’m curious about this.. Maybe I go back this year.. Anyway, sorry for my english, I’m from Suisse.. Thanks

    1. Hello Jordi! Sorry I’ve been a lazy blogger and saw this comment just now. I don’t remember meeting a couple there in my visit last 2012.

      You’re English is good Jordi 🙂 No need to apologize.
