How to get there: Go to the Sala Daeng BTS Station or Silom MRT station. That will put you on the eastern end of the street. If you go to the Saphan Taksin BTS Station then go north on Charoen Krung (ถนนเจริญกรุง) you will run into the western end of Silom road. Look at the map below for clearification.
Silom is a street that goes through the tourist area of Bangrak, one of the many districts in Bangkok. If you follow Silom street down to either end, you will find all the backpackers in Bangkok, well most of them at least. Along Silom road there are many swanky shops and hotels. The hostels are on intersecting streets and alleys.
