Style & character:
The Posh offers hotel facilities in a hostel context. The five-floor property’s narrow stairways, corridors, and the low-ceilinged reception feel a little cramped but the plain wood furnishings go some way to justify the hostel’s name. The common area and small rooms have a boutique feel.
Service & facilities:
There’s a bewildering choice of air-conditioned sleeping options. The 10-bed dormitories are tightly packed but beds are comfortable and there are plug points and reading lights bedside. The upper bunk beds are accessible via a little stairway. One of the dorms is for female guests only.
Shared bathrooms are smart, clean and spacious with marble floors and large mirrors. Guests can also stay in so-called cabins, which offer the same space like a dorm bed with more privacy and a personal TV. Cabins with desks are really mini rooms. The double rooms are tiny and plain with wooden floors, TV, twin or double beds, a desk and fridge and views onto busy Phayathai and the Skytrain station. These bathrooms are also compact but very smart with marble floors and large mirrors.
Food & drink:
There’s no restaurant. A simple breakfast buffet with eggs, hashbrowns, sausages, bread, fruit, and cereals is served in the common area. Guests can help themselves to free water, instant coffee, tea, soft drinks, biscuits and cereals throughout the day. Phayathai has plenty of eating options, from restaurants to street food stalls.
