Nicely designed hostel with superb top floor relaxation area.
Cloudy Hostel sits in a quiet side street about 5 minutes walk from Ratchathewi BTS station. There’s lots of small restaurants and convenience stores nearby, as well as one of my favorite chill-out spots, Anan Coffee.
The hallways, bathrooms and dorms were spotlessly clean with a light, airy mix of metal, concrete and wood paneling. Bunks were well equipped with reading light, sockets and a shelf to put personal items. There weren’t any privacy curtains but I didn’t feel I needed them.
One of the best things about this hostel is the top floor relaxation area that I don’t think many guests know about. It features an open kitchen, lounge and balcony with bar seats that overlooks the Bangkok skyline and street below. The kitchen has a toaster, microwave and fridge. There’s no breakfast provided but like many other hostels in Bangkok there’s free tea, instant coffee and cookies.
The hostel was pretty quiet during my stay, probably due to being low season. I suspect as well that the nearby Bed Station Hostel draws business away by establishing itself as a place to be for younger backpackers. However Cloudy is a great option if you want a bit more privacy while still being in a great location.
Cloudy Hostel sits between Phaya Thai and Ratchathewi BTS stations which is perfect for getting into town or to the airport. MBK shopping center and Pantip Plazza electronics mall are in walkable distance.
