Since we have just landed in Thailand I wanted to see what the hotel scene has to offer. I discovered this Bangkok hostel, that has made the most out of their space by using clever design. The Bed One Block hostel that opened in 2016, has gotten the balance just right utilizing the space they have in the best way possible. The hostels 4m by 16m footprint doesn’t give a lot of room to play with, but local design firm A Millimetre designed the space in clever ways, keeping the style minimal and practical yet with a welcoming and cozy feel. Very Scandinavian of them, don’t you think?
Making a small space work
They’ve designed the narrow entrance space into a chill hangout in different levels with a cool color scheme with accents of wood and plants to warm it up. A theme that runs through the whole 5 stories building.
While bunk beds might have been on top of your wish list as a kid, they have kind of lost their sheen looking through the eyes of an adult. However these beds are spacious and sturdy and the curtains in thick fabric makes all the difference when you want some privacy. Hence it’s a clever use of space and still keeping it comfortable.
Lovely wooden doors
Look at the doors in the bathrooms, totally stylish, especially in a hostel and not what you’d expect. Very luxurious! In addition they’ve also been able to incorporate the hostels industrial looking surroundings in a very nice way, still keeping it fresh.
I’d love to hear your thoughts! Would you consider living in a hostel like this instead of a hotel? Or is this more to your taste? Leave me a comment below and let me know! And don’t forget to share this with all your friends 😉
