This was an unexpected delight, as we thought it would be just another rowdy hostel. Instead these 10-12 bed dorms were spacious and the 'boxes' are larger than the look (approx 1mx1.2mx2m) with little sliding doors between adjacent bunks. There were shared co-ed bathrooms and single sex ones, depending on the floor you're on. And the steep stair well is...

I´ve stayed in Boxpackers for about a week, the location is good and near to all shopping centers. Even though the allay is a bit "slummy" and it´s annoying (as in whole Thailand) when you´re leaving on the street that people wanna urge you buing things (ping pong show, tuktuk ride.....). There are about 3 Massage Stores around the hostel...

Boxpackers was unlike anywhere I had stayed at before. Each dormitory has 10 beds, which are recessed into the wall like a small box or cubby hole, stacked two high. There is a small storage cupboard underneath the bed or if you are on the top bunk, on the opposite wall. Bathrooms are shared but clean. There are women only...

This hostel was unlike one I'd previously stayed in when it came to sleeping arrangements. Boxpacker's 10 bed dorm rooms are efficiently laid out to accomodate not only 10 people but their luggage too, which is stored underneath your bed. If you're staying with a group or as couple you can have both privacy and each others company, with sliding...

It's a good place to stay, it's clean and very near to the city. Definitely will recommend everyone to come. I would also come back for my next trip here. The staff are very friendly and helpful, they also speak decent English and can communicate well.

First, this guesthouse is probably the cleanest place I've seen in Asia : from showers to toilets passing by bed and towels. Secondly, the concept is very original : you are sleeping in a big confortable box. 2 power sockets, little light for reading, place to put your valuable stuff! Thirdly, great location! Near market, malls and bus station. Forthly,...

The place is very conveniently located near the sky train and airport train with many shops and restaurant around! It felt clean and safe the entire time we were there and they also provided free breakfast in the morning. The hostel is located on a street with many massage parlours so make sure to get a foot massage while here!...

I have spend 5 nights in this hostel and this hostel is nice and worth to stay. If you are worry about the box is too hot? No worries. You can get a bladeless fan or you can open up the curtain a little bit. For me, it is not hot and I feel a little bit cold with the...
