Beautiful, comfortable rooms. Safe. Friendly environment. Meticulously clean. Good wifi. Nice bathrooms. Great coffee and delicious breakfast choices for a reasonable price just downstairs. Chris the owner gives great advice on anything you need to know about Bangkok. The entire staff went out of their way for me several times. I extended my stay.The neighborhood is out of the really touristy areas giving an authentic Thai neighborhood experience. Surrounded by good food. Getting around is very easy as it is a quick walk to the river for a water taxi that takes you through the middle of Bangkok to many of the main areas. The sky train is in walking distance or you can hop a bus for a few baht and be at the sky train station in five minutes. Would highly recommend as a great oasis among the craziness of Bangkok.
Our room was very nice, the A/C was wonderful, and bathrooms are always clean. Staff was so friendly and helpful. We always asked for bowls and knives to cut the fruit we brought back to the hotel, and they gladly helped us. (we're budget travelers... fruits cheap!) Oh and the location was prime. It felt like we were the only ones in the area that weren't locals, which totally enhances the experience. Don't forget to ask about 'the pad thai guy' that's maybe less than a five minute walk from Kama. His pad thai is incomparable.
If you want an authentic Thai cultural experience from your surroundings to eating local food and interacting with local Thai people, I highly recommend staying at Kama Bangkok. The hostel being a little bit away from the tourist areas gives you much more access to Thai culture and regular Thai people than other hotels and hostels can. The owner and the staff are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The facilities and amenities were exactly as shown on the website. The staff and consistently go above and beyond expectations in order to help make sure their get the best experience possible. When I got in a taxi at the airport and called for the owner to give the driver directions, the owner negotiated with the taxi driver for me to get a better priced cab fare than what the taxi driver initially said the fare to Kama would be. Staying at Kama felt as comfortable as staying with close friends who live among regular Thai people. I plan to stay at Kama hostel every time I go to Bangkok.
Kama Bangkok is proud to announce that we are expanding our primary location to include 10 more guest rooms with ensuite bathrooms. We expect to open these rooms in February 2016. We are grateful to all of our customers who have helped make this happen. We look forward to seeing you again in the coming year!

Kāma (Sanskrit, Pali; Devanagari: काम) is a concept that broadly refers to any desire, wish, passion, longing, pleasure of the senses, the aesthetic enjoyment of life, affection, or love.
At Kama we explore this concept through great food, art, music, friendship, and soulfulness. We started Kama based on the idea that the accommodation space could use improvement in very simple but important ways. We believe that empathy is at the core of great hospitality, not servility; It is an expression genuine concern for others. We believe that most businesses these days lack soul and and a feeling of accessibility. We believe that every day we open our doors and say hello to our guests, that we are creating community. Everyone is welcome.
Kama is the culmination of our best ideas, passions and experiences.
We think we should always be willing to go with the best idea, regardless of where it comes from and be willing to learn from anybody. Do what's got to be done everyday. The basic things matter, details matter. Try not to be a jerk. The truth doesn't always make sense, but it usually feels right. We've learned that when we are creating we are happy so we try to make something everyday. The only free will we have is how well we respond to fate, so we find our courage daily and smile. Work can be a beautiful thing when done beautifully, and it's a lot more fun done together than apart.
