Important Information

We want you to have fun when you stay with us so we don't really want to have too many rules. But as travelers you will understand that we have to be realistic so here we go :

1.Born Free Hostel has a 48hour (2days) cancellation policy. Guests will be charged the full amount of their stay if their reservation is not cancelled 48h prior to check in time at midday. If you wish to cancel any reservations please cancel through Hosteworld.com, we DO NOT accept FB cancellations. Please send us an email or cancel via the booking engine. Groups of 4 or more need to cancel at least 7 days in advance. Credit cards are not accepted, please pay cash upon arrival!

2.This is a backpacker's/travelers's destination so it is not suitable for children and babies.

3.Born Free Hostel stands for a relaxed atmosphere where travelers can meet and share journeys. We have a few simple house rules and when these are respected everyone will be able to enjoy their time here:

1)For safety reasons we do not allow guests' friends in to the room areas without staff being present. Any guests who wish to bring in friends may do so in the lobby area only.

2)Alcohol, smoking and food (with certain exceptions) is not tolerated within the bed room areas. Bed rooms are a retreat to relax, sleep, enjoy downtime etc.. and not to party!

3)We do not have a curfew hour but we want everyone to have fun, enjoy the movie screen or play games but those relaxing in the rooms need to be respected.

:)

Also please note:

The Born Free family grew. We have 1 Siberian cat guarding the house!!!

***April and May months are hottest and as a result the 10 bed dorm equipped with fans will get warmer***

***Please kindly NOTE that we charge an extra 100THB if you both arrive before 09:00AM or leave after 18:00PM and use our facilities during those hours. Anything between this time frame is free of charge and included in the booking.
We do NOT charge for bag drop off***

Liked: Friendly staff, close to main attractions, free bikes and happy atmosphere.

Disliked: Pillows and mattresses slightly on the harder side but the reason for that is that they use leather covers to protect them from dirt and bugs.

Liked: Loved it here! My first time ever traveling abroad and am so happy I made this base camp for the first couple days. Cheap, basic, clean with everything ya need. Easy to meet other traveller's too if you're on your own like me! Close to all the happenings but still tucked away down a nice little side street. Will Def be returning before I head home!! Thanks a lot born free team love your work!!
