Night VIP bus took us to Ayutthaya very smoothly. We stopped next to the highway, because the bus didn't go through the city centre. We had to take a taxi - it costed 100 BHT. There were only few taxis, which expected some lost tourists. We hadn't opportunity to haggle.
We asked for a pick up to the centre. It is a good practice when you don't have reservations or you can ask to go to the place with a budget hostels.
We easily found Tony's place (link)- the hostel recommended by   Lonley Planet. I remember only the mosquitoes at my legs at 5 am,the dream at the bench when we could sleep in the hammock. The one Thai guy tried to explain us this possibility at Tony's place but his English was pure and our participation of the world to   tired to be focus on something else than sleeping anywhere.

Finally at 8 o'clock they open a hostel. I asked a lady at the reception for making us a reservation of any available room as soon as anything will be free. At 9 only AC room was free. We paid 500 BHT, but it was worth it.
After a small nap we rented bicycles (30 BHT per day) and we rode through the whole Ayutthaya. It was awsame, because we saw Thai wedding, people at suburbs,  a lot of old tombs, parks.
