Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Best hostel I’ve stayed in since travelling around south east Asia!! The rooms were brilliant, curtains on each bed and lockers for each person which ensured privacy and safety. Also the air con worked well. The staff were so kind and helpful. Bathrooms and showers were always clean. The social aspect of this hostel was great, there were upstairs beanbags and also some downstairs by the pool as well as a bar just outside the front. Would definitely go back to ubox when I’m in koh Samui next

Nothing bad to say about the hostel. Simple rooms, large lockers. A bar right outside the hostel with cheap drinks. There’s a nice cold small pool, perfect for avoiding the heat. The staff were incredibly helpful and kind, even attempting to help us by posting some swimming stuff we had left there. Eventually didn’t get it posted, but they were more than willing to help even after we had left.

Koh Samui is big and this hostel is in the best beach, from there you can go to everywhere easily, staff is very friendly, the bar is quite expensive comparing to others but you are a few steps from the restaurants at the beach, clubs, markets and all

Ubox is extremely clean. I was very impressed, nice, new facility. Everyday a squad of cleaners cleans everything from top to bottom. I saw them wipe the bottom of a mattress! (Impressed) the washrooms are top notch, the nicest I've seen in Thailand. Would reccomend to anyone. (Although the drinks are expensive) great place to stay!

Had an amazing time! My friend and I were welcomed by lovely staff who were friendly and polite, they informed us of free towels, private beach, free washing machine along with discount for our meals at the restaurant. The hostel itself was clean and we had no concerns, the beds had curtains which allowed some privacy and they were so comfortable! The food at the restaurant was some of the best we’ve had on our travels around Asia. All the staff including domestic, bar and restaurant were so friendly and helpful in particular BuBu helped us a lot! 10/10 would recommend this place. Two minute walk from the beach and 5 minutes walk from the nightlife, was nice to have a chilled end to our holiday!

We've had an amazing stay at Ubox, staff are super friendly, cleaners, reception staff, security and bar staff are all lovely and helpful. The rooms are so so clean and modern as are the bathrooms and there's loads of nice extras including fresh towels, free morning coffee, shower caps and free use of the washing machine. There's also access to a private beach with a great restaurant attatched, honestly a beautiful place to stay and was a lovely end to our month traveling, couldn't reccomend more ! Only fault could be it's quite quiet so might be difficult as a solo traveller but for us we loved the peace and quiet and still managed to meet people and make new friends !

We booked a private room and arrived at the hostel but were escorted to a separate building across the road which didn’t have the novelty of the shipping containers or a pool. However the rooms were very clean and spacious and basically on the beach, a very gorgeous stretch of Chaweng and 5 mins away from ark bar. It did feel a bit manic being on the main road and next to such a busy beach but it was a good experience overall. Didn’t feel very included in the hostel or party vibe but again wouldn’t of wanted to swap for a dorm room when travelling in a couple so can’t complain!

The staff are so welcoming and sort you out straight away. The rooms are very clean and a little edgy with the container style feel (good btw). The pool is very nice and the two ‘chill areas’ are nice! We were in low season so it was a little quiet but still a good vibe. The upkeep of the place was great. Drinks are strong too which is a bonus.

Beds had curtains and were bigger than the standard bunk bed, feeling more like pods. They were also comfy and had duvets - nice change! Air con, pool, bar and chill out area. Also offered powder and washing machines for small fee. As well as private beach. Toilets and showers clean. Overall really well done.

Ubox is very new and well furnished. The rooms are really nice and the beds were the most comfortable hostel beds I have ever slept in. The staff was very nice. The only con I have is that the music at the bar is really loud and plays all night, keeping you up if you’re not partying & the walls are paper thin. I was woken up because of people on the floor above me & one night from someone coming back drunk and simply playing music loud but only on their PHONE. If you bring earplugs that would fix the problem. Other than that the place is lovely.
