Khao San Road is famous for being a backpackers' hangout with a retro 60's hippy feel.But it is definitely worth an afternoon/night stop by to watch the folks go by as you sip a beer in one of the numerous open-air sidewalk-front bars. A major happening here that you may like or want to avoid is night time during Songkran - it will be mobbed - loud music - and water, water, water :-) . By the way, you can get here easily by taking the Chao Phaya ferries, but they stop running in the early evening, so you may end up taking a taxi home or at least to the BTS station. Also note the Victory Monument is nearby and it is frequently the scene of political protests.
