We were blessed to have Eric with us though it was just a short period. Eric was a good heart person. He has a bar knowledge and social media skills. The jobs were perfectly done and he always asked if we need any help though it's not his shift. He was flexible and enthusiastic about learning how to cook. He enjoyed eating local food and learning cultures. He helped me taking care of my son and speak English with him regularly. We highly recommend Eric to the other host and of course we'd love to have him with us again.

Telma is sweet, friendly, and enthusiastic about learning. She was very well present and there's always a smile on her face. She took a good care of my 4 years old son and my son loves her. She also did a very good job in cleaning. We love to have her around and we highly recommend her to the other hosts.

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!

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.

My boyfriend and I spent an amazing month at Bangkok Bed and Bike. We worked at the bar and it was a sensacionall experience. Effie is a lovely person and all the hostel and bar staff are very friendly. We had plenty of time to get to know Bangkok, visit all the sights, and explore the less touristy and most charming parts of the city. We learned a lot about the Thais and their culture there. The work was simple, the hours and days off were followed very well, and the atmosphere really is wonderful. I not only recommend it, but would go again if I return to Bangkok. Effie, thanks for everythi

Coral and Vitor were very sweet and romantic couple. They did very well at the bar and they accompanied each other most of the time. They created a very good atmosphere at the bar. It was slow at the bar while they were here but they made the place so lively. They could dance and sing very well. We were very happy to meet them and learn different culture from them. Highly recommended!

IT was the greatest first experience for a Worldpacking adverture.
Effie is great, so is Elle and Soda, whi help you knowing the daily tasks.
The working hours are respected and you get the day off to explore Bangkok.
The hostel is located in a estrategic place downtown. 20 minutos walking from Chinatown, Khao San Road, The Great Palace and othe places you'll want to visit.
I highly recomend it.
