Bangkok Bed and Bike was my home for a month and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Effie and her family are great people, very hardworking and a lot fun to be around. I had a great time with Allan, their 5-year old train lover son. Soda and Effie were very polite, welcoming and introduced me to a few great places in BKK and surroundings. P Tan was lovely and a true companion. The job matched what had been agreed and the working hours were accurately respected. The accommodation met all my needs. Overall, it’s an experience worth having if you’re planning a trip to BKK!

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.



I had a great experience at the hostel! Effie was a very good host, always nice and polite. Her son Allan is a wonderfull sweet boy who enchanted my heart! The best I took from Bangkok! ❤

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!
