I offer the best budget accommodations in the heart of Bangkok, on a quiet side street in the Sathon district, just minutes from the subway, Silom and Lumpini Park. If you want to be in the center of things, this room is what you are looking for.

The Space

We provide modest accommodation for guests with tight budget. Our main goal is - central location: it helps budget travelers saving on transportation a lot, what is such important in hard traffic of Bangkok. The room is situated in the main central district of Bangkok - Sathorn, close to subway station – it is just 9 minutes walking; direct toll ways from both of the airports ends close what makes possible to reach both airports by taxi without traffic; main train station Hua Lampong is just 3 stations by subway; bus terminals are easy to reach within 20 minutes by subway and sky train.
Our price is competitive and definitely unique for the central area. For the price of dormitory – you will get a small studio (18 square meters) with everything you need for a comfort stay.
Our facilities include:
- Air-con
- Wall fan
- TV, cable TV
- Private hot shower and toilet
- Refrigerator
- Towels, linen
- Common wireless internet
- Outside common dining area
- Non-smoking room
- Laundry service (for additional modest fee)

We are located about 5 minutes from the MRT subway’s Lumpini station, and one subway stop from the BTS Skytrain’s Sala Daeng station.
We are near to day and night markets, nightlife, Lumpini Boxing Stadium and Sathon and Silom business areas. Lumpini Park, one of the most beautiful parks of Bangkok, is nearby. Our neighborhood is full of Thai and western restaurants, and street food stalls where you can eat for $1-2 US. There are many massage shops and spas to relax and pamper you.
The house is definitely located in one of the most convenient parts of Bangkok
Our rooms are non-smoking, but there is a smoking area available in front of the house.
Feel free to drop me a message if you have any questions.

Interaction with Guests

This is my annex building. Guests will receive total private stay. But my house is just 15 meters to the east. Airbnb guests are important part of my life. I am available to provide any useful information. I respect privacy of my guests as well so I try not to be annoying, but I am around in case you need something. I permanently live in my house on the second floor with my dogs.
Normally I am available (not 100% busy) from 10am-12pm and 5-8 pm.

The Neighborhood

We are in the true center of the city. The Sathon area, like the Sukhumvit area, provides such real Thai pearls as food-courts and delicious street food for $1-2 US per meal, authentic traditional Thai massage and a local, not 100% westernized friendly lifestyle.
It is easy and fast to access Silom Road and Sukhumvit Road as well by metro/motorcycle taxi $1-2 US per trip.
Sathon area has a really rich infrastructure which can make your stay as comfortable as you can get in a 5 star hotel for a lot less money.
And of course if you stay weekly you can enjoy the most beautiful Lumpini Park with free yoga, tai chi, aerobics, and jogging. Or you can rent a bicycle to ride in the park or explore the city streets.
I definitely recommend these experiences for my guests:
- Morning and evening Thai food courts
- Massage, yoga classes, traditional Chinese medicine clinics
- Weekend markets and Silom night market
- Temples, riverside view and Chinatown
- The Rooftop bar at the Banyan Tree hotel
- Nightlife and bars
- Go-go and adult shows
- Saunas

Getting around

How to reach us from Bangkok International Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK)
By taxi (approximate price 350-450 baht)
The Public Taxi counter is located on Level 1. Expect to pay the metered taxi fare (approximately 200-300 baht), plus an additional 50 baht airport surcharge, plus 100 baht tollway fees. If you are in heavy traffic on the tollway, the meter fare will be higher.
NB! PLEASE in case you take taxi - don’t expect taxi driver to find the place by address (they don’t know addresses, they don’t speak English and even Thai, they don’t like to read maps; good side is that it is safe and cheap). The way to deal with taxi is to show him directions manually like “Here is u-turn; here you stop etc.”
TIP “How to make the taxi driver use meter”: If driver tells “No meter” you just tell “STOP” and take the other taxi (it is plenty of them), 80% of the drivers will turn on meter immediately.
+ in detail
On Level 1 of the airport there is a special Public Taxi counter for pickup by taxis (there are signs inside the airport building). If you arrive on an international flight, you will have to go down one level, then exit the building to find the Public Taxi stand.
At the counter you will be asked for the address of your destination. You can just show a map (we have one which I provide on the web site). They will choose a driver for you and give you a receipt (this means you have to pay the driver 50 baht extra airport charge). Follow the driver to your taxi. Every taxi has a meter, a special machine which counts how much you have to pay at the end of the trip. It is located in the center of the dashboard. If the taxi driver doesn’t turn it on, just say “meter” to remind him. If he says it is broken, or tries to negotiate a flat fee, insist on the meter. It is illegal for him to not use the meter. On the way to the center of Bangkok the taxi passes 2 toll booths for which you have to pay (totally (phone number hidden) baht). At the end of the trip the taxi meter will show you how much you should pay. Add 50 baht for the airport charge. A tip is not required, but If you want to tip the driver the usual tip size is 20-50 baht.
You should tell the taxi driver that you are going to Malaysia Hotel at Sathon Soi 1 (pronounced “sataown”), it is the only place around taxi drivers usually know

HomeStay is not far from Malaysia and Ibis Sathon Hotels.
There is a 7-11 store in front of Ibis Sathon Hotel. Soi Sri Bumphen starts there and goes between 7-11 and the Ibis Sathon Hotel. Walk on the right side of Soi Sri Bumphen. Pass a purple bank, some cafes and massage shops, one very small street on the right which you have to ignore, then and old empty hotel, a pharmacy, then Kenny Bar/Family Restaurant, just across from Trajai Steak House. You will see an orange sign pointing to Lido restaurant. Turn right, and we are just past Lido. You can check among room pics for local map. I have 12 photos explaining the surroundings.
Total distance between Malaysia/Ibis Sathon Hotel and our street is 100 meters, so you can reach it in 3-5 minutes, if you walk more – turn back.
HomeStay has 6 floors and looks like Thai town-house. There is a red sign that says "Bedrooms for rent 300-700B".
If there is any problem finding the place, please give me a call from the 7-11 across from the Ibis Sathon Hotel, and I will meet you there.

  • Returned to stay with Evan again and everything was perfect as usual

    June 2014
  • We really enjoyed our stay here. Evan was really helpful when we had questions and the place was super convenient and close to the MRT which made getting around the city really hassle free. There were lots of really good and cheap restaurants around as well - we really liked the "green leaf" place Evan recommended. The room itself had plenty if space and it was nice that we could choose between the super cold AC or a fan. The only thing we would have changed would be the hard mattress. We would definitely recommend to anyone!

    June 2014
  • Our stay was great! Evan was very accommodating - as our flight was extremely delayed and did not arrive until 1 am - he was awake to greet us. The location is very central - short walk to Lumphini rail station. Thanks again!

    June 2014
  • I have stayed at Evan's 3 times and every single time was everything I expected. My wife and I were traveling through Southeast Asia for around 4 weeks and though we would book with little time in advance, Evan was always kind enough to accommodate us (even the last time that he was having trouble with the plumbing, he gave us many options and made sure we were comfortable and satisfied).
    All 3 times we stayed at different rooms, they all had different layouts and included a private bathroom. The bathroom was clean and included soap and toilet paper. The bed had only sheets (which was enough for us given the weather) but Evan offered us a duvet (which we didn't take). The a/c works perfectly as well as the in-room safe. The neighborhood we found eclectic (fun!) with everything we needed a few steps away (restaurants, bars, bakery, 7-11, laundry, etc)
    The only negative I'd have to say is that the second time we stayed, the bed/mattress was tough as well as the pillows. Not a big deal since we stayed only a few days that time but I might not have been able to rest properly had we stayed for more than a week.
    All and all, I highly recommend Evan's place as I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    June 2014
  • Evan is an extremely helpful host! While I was staying with him he helped my friend with find apartments to rent in the area. The room was very clean and comfortable, with fast wifi and cable TV. The neighborhood is also a fun place to be with great restaurants, street food, and night life for a great Bangkok experience.

    May 2014
  • The accommodation is as described and is the best you can get in this price range. Evan was very helpful and he gave me tips as in how to get around and what to look out for. If you are into books and movies, you can have a very good conversation with him as well.

    May 2014
  • evan has a really centrally located nice place. i could go anywhere i wanted in 5-10 minutes by taxi and its well connect to public transport options too. the room was clean, the neighbourhood nice and there was even a fridge and a safe to store my items.

    May 2014
  • Evan's place was reliable and comfortable, without the frills. He runs his guesthouse well and quickly responds to any issues. We felt safe and comfortable at his place, and his directions provided are very accurate. I would recommend Evan's place to anyone looking for a dependable place to stay in bangkok.

    May 2014
  • I enjoyed my stay at Evans place, the room was fairly big, it was clean, there was a fridge, the AC worked perfectly and I had my own bathroom. The area is also quiet with lots of places to eat or get a massage and close to MRT - Evan is a nice guy too. I definitely recommend his place and would gladly go back there.

    April 2014
  • Evan is a fantastic host. He is very friendly and will help you out in every possible way. Evan makes sure the rooms are kept super clean. Definitely would recommend and we'll came back!
