Vaboir Lodge Hotel is located in the northern part of Bangkok. It is in a good location for a big city like Bangkok. It has all of the attractions at more or less the same distance. As we were going to move around the country on a few occasions and we wanted to return to the same hotel each time we chose this one as it was not too far from the airport and not too far from the temple area or the shopping area. From this hotel, to get down to the shopping area we got a taxi to drop us off at the metro stop called Ladprao as the road is very long and from here we could go to different places such as the pratunam market area, Chatuchak, mbk, Hua Lampong station, etc... Its not the best hotel if you only want to go to the temple areas as there are no transport services except taxis or tuk tuks. To get to the temples or to Khao San Road we would go directly by taxi for no more than 300 or 400 baht (6 or 8 euros). This 3-star hotel cost us about 10 euros per night and is more than good for that price. It has a laundry service, internet, air conditioning and a TV in the rooms, a restaurant and an outdoor area for lunches or dinners and entertainment. You know, if you go back more than once to Bangkok and do not want to be too far from the airport I recommend this hotel. Greetings.
If you're traveling in Thailand, staying at one of the Hostelling International hostels doesn't make much sense because the local guest houses and private hostels tend to be better and cheaper. That being said, the Hi Baan Thewet was wonderful. It's a small hostel (only 20 beds), but the people who work there are very friendly and speak very good English. Located in a very quiet area.
