I arrived at the (in)famous Khao San Road in Bangkok, Thailand very late last night and checked some cheap guesthouses between 1am and 2am.
One trend I noticed was that it was common at night to only have Wi-Fi for the guests in the reception area but during the day also in the guest rooms. At least at the low end of the budget range.
I've never come across this anywhere else in my travels. Does anybody know why this is done? As a hitchhiker one of the first things I want to do after a long hitch is get online and update my whereabouts for people interested in my adventures or worried about my mode of travel.
The only reasons I can think up are people talking on Skype at night, but they could still watch movies off their hard drives; or people greedily soaking up too much Internet by downloading movies all night ...
