I knew by the time I got here I would be tired. A friend of mine told me she often rented a place for a month at a time when she traveled. I thought that sounded like a good idea – and I started looking on Airbnb. This place has a hotel, a hostel, and the women’s residence – where my room is, a cafe, a coffee shop, and a little convenience store. I have a big room, great bathroom, a/c, tv, fridge, big desk and a king bed (with good bedding). It costs $8 a day, but I had to pay $15 for my internet access in my room, and will pay a few dollars for electricity when I leave. If I want housekeeping I pay for that each time. Its new, clean and safe. Great staff. Staying here I also have access to the communal kitchen and swimming pool. It appears to have a lot of young Asian women guests- and I think most of them are students. I can walk to the metro in about 15 minutes, and its less than 5 minutes to a bus stop. This complex is down a small alley off a small street in a very typical Thai neighborhood. It is perfect!
