Cozy Bangkok Place
Backpacker style accommodation. All rooms have shared bathrooms but there are plenty of them on each floor (basically one for every room!). A/C or fan rooms available with free wifi at possibly the best rates this side of Kao San Road. The staff were friendly and the communal room was nice without being a total hangout joint. *shoe removal is mandatory.

Cozy Bangkok Place Get's the nod as being the best rated hotel near Bangkok's railway station. It's not as close as others and has a shoe removal policy. But it is great value for money, free wifi, very clean, has very nice staff (Sui) a good place to either meet people or do your own thing and close to both the BTS and MRT. Looking for an alternative to Kao San Road? Then think about staying here. Check out the room prices of Cozy.
@HuaLamphong: Jumping up in budget it's more a modern budget hotel / flashpackers with very clean rooms, ensuite's, free wifi, cafe, good value tours and very friendly staff. It's literally just beside the MRT so there's a good selection of travelers coming through its doors. Check out the room prices of @HuaLamphong
By walking: All the hotels above are marked out on the map below. They are approximately 10 minutes walk from either the main Hua Lamphong railway station or its adjoining MRT stations.
Tip: Do make use of the MRT stations underground walkways to avoid the heavy traffic above. There are 4 main exits though 3 & 4 are about the same. 1 inside the station, 1 across the junction. And exit 3 & 4 across from the previous one on the opposite side of Rama 4 road.
