How to get to Mad Monkey Bangkok

Our hostel is located right in the heart of the action for backpackers in Bangkok, just minutes away from the legendary Khao San Road. The hostel itself sits on a peaceful bend of Phra Sumen Road overlooking the canal and a few metres from a historic fort and a park on the Phra Sumen River.

Our vibrant neighbourhood is full of restaurants, cafes, shops, convenience stores, and more — anything you’re looking for can be found within walking distance.

 

From Suvarnabhumi Airport

By Taxi:

Give the driver Mad Monkey’s address (included below in English and Thai). Make sure you take a taxi with a running meter. This will work out to cost less than a set fee. Taxi drivers only accept THB currency, and do not take credit cards, so withdraw money at the airport if you don’t have any yet. The total price on the meter will not include the airport surcharge and toll fees (if you take a route with tolls).

By Airport Rail Link:

This is a cheap way to get into the city. The Airport Rail runs from 6:00am to 12:00 midnight. A train arrives at the airport every 10-15 minutes. Take the City Line. Get off at Phaya Thai BTS Station. From Phaya Thai you can (1) take a taxi or tuk-tuk to Mad Monkey (see our address below) or (2) take Bus #59 to Khao San (Khok Wua Junction on Ratchadamnoen Klang Rd), then walk from Khan San Road to Mad Monkey (about 10 minutes).
By Bus # S1: You can take this bus at the airport from Gate 7 on the 1st floor. The bus runs from 6:00am to 8:00pm. The ticket is only 60 THB. Get off at Phra Sumen Road stop and walk towards the river until you reach Mad Monkey (a few minutes).

 

From Don Mueang Airport

Don Mueang Airport is not connected to any of the rail lines, so you’ll need to take a taxi or the bus.

By Taxi:

Give the driver Mad Monkey’s address (included below in English and Thai). Make sure you take a taxi with a running meter. This will work out to cost less than a set fee. Taxi drivers only accept THB currency, and do not take credit cards, so withdraw money at the airport if you don’t have any yet. The total price on the meter will not include the airport surcharge and toll fees (if you take a route with tolls).

By Bus #A4:

You can take this bus at the airport from Gate 12. The bus runs from 7:00am to 11:00pm. The ticket is only 50 THB. Get off at Phra Sumen Road stop and walk towards the river until you reach Mad Monkey (a few minutes).

 

From Mo Chit Bus Terminal

By Taxi:

Give the driver Mad Monkey’s address (included below in English and Thai). Make sure you take a taxi with a running meter. This will work out to cost less than a set fee. Taxi drivers only accept THB currency, and do not take credit cards, so withdraw money at the station if you don’t have any yet. The total price on the meter will not include toll fees (if you take a route with tolls).

By Bus #3:

You can get on Bus #3 from inside Mo Chit Terminal. Get off at Chakrabongse Road (behind Khao San Road) or Bang Lamphu, which is the closest bus stop to Mad Monkey. It’s about a 5 minute walk to the hostel from here. Walk towards Phra Sumen Fort (Pom Phra Sumen) and you will see Mad Monkey.

 

From Ekkamai Bus Terminal

By Taxi:

Give the driver Mad Monkey’s address (included below in English and Thai). Make sure you take a taxi with a running meter. This will work out to cost less than a set fee. Taxi drivers only accept THB currency, and do not take credit cards, so withdraw money at the station if you don’t have any yet. The total price on the meter will not include toll fees (if you take a route with tolls).

By Bus #2 or #511:

You can get on Bus #2 or #511 outside the terminal but on the same side of the road. Get off at Khok Wua Junction on Ratchadamnoen Klang Road. From here it’s about a 10 minute walk to Mad Monkey (head towards Phra Sumen Fort (Pom Phra Sumen) and you’ll see the hostel).

Things to note:

  • The bus system in Bangkok is very complicated. The most important thing is to make sure you get on the bus on the correct side of the road, so that you’re heading in the right direction. When you board the bus, tell the driver where you want to get off and they’ll signal you when it’s your stop. If you get lost, it’s easiest to get in a taxi.
  • Note that some bus lines do not run all night.
  • Phra Suman Road is sometimes also referred to as Phra Athit Road – if your taxi or tuk-tuk driver says this, it’s okay.
  • If you make it as far as Khao San Road but you’re not which direction to go to find Mad Monkey, ask someone local which direction Phra Sumen Fort (Pom Phra Sumen) is in – Mad Monkey is just down the street from the fort, away from the river.
