Born Free Hostel Vista Logo


Just like the original Born Free Hostel, you will find that we’re in a unique part of Bangkok, within the Rattanakosin island area and close to both the Chao Phraya river and the many canals flowing through this ‘island’. You’ll see traditional chinese / thai families living and making a living in all the streets around us:

Born Free Hostel – Vista is located just one block away from the Krung Kasem canal which joins with the Maha Nak canal below the Golden Mountain. It gives those who seek a little walking adventure through authentic Thai neighborhoods a perfect insight of untouched Thai relaxed lifestyle within the local communities. You will be able to experience the real friendliness of the locals which so often is overshadowed by tourist scams and businesses giving many the wrong impression of true Thailand. Once at the Golden Mountain, you may also take a canal boat on an exciting journey through the centre of Bangkok…the possibilities to explore around here are limitless!

We are on the main Chakrabongse street opposite of the Konnichipan bakery. We have two 7Elevens nearby, plenty of street food vendors along Rambutri and Samsen road, small pubs and bars along the canals and alleys of Phra Athit as well as restaurants with great hosts such as Cinema Winehouse with home made food and a cozy atmosphere, Mai Kai Dee restaurant and cooking school and lots more…

Nearest practical bus station is right down the road with buses to Hua Lamphong train station, MBK and National Stadium, Phayathai, Chatuchak weekend market etc. as well as pier 13 with shuttle boats down the Chao Phraya river.

The standing Buddha, Rama 8 bridge and Dust Palaces are all in walking distance. 10min walk from our location is the famous nightlife of Kao San Road and a little further is the Grand Palace and Wat Po (reclining Buddha) making this a perfect location for starting day tours in any direction…
