The thoughtful design for backpackers who need some privacy is wonderful. It would be so so good if there were more and more guest houses like it. Would definitely recommend it.


I love it here for the battery recharge that I desperately needed after 3 month of travel. The room is dark and quiet and there's constant air flow via the fan when the air con is turned off (from 11am-6pm every day). I love, love the box design and wish more hostel would adopt the idea...it's like having your own little room! The staff is helpful (and mostly speak English) and the restaurant has good food!


The box beds are without doubt the best hostel beds I have slept in (I am so grateful they are not the metal fram bunks as it gives more space and there is none of the squaking everytime someone moves), the sliding door to the nextdoor bed is a neat touch.


What a lovely hostel! This was the nicest hostel I've ever stayed at, hands down. The boxes feel very spacious, everything is super clean, the aircon is amazing and the wifi is strong. It's not the best neighborhood if you're looking to hang out with other travelers, but for one or two nights it's great.


Comfiest beds we've had travelling, good food and lots of nice restaurants nearby.


This is a lovely hostel, everything is as if brand new, extremely clean and great facilities (amazing shower). The staff are very helpful and the cafe attached serves good food at reasonable prices. Though it is not near the centre it is really close to the sky train and airport link and tuktuks are readily available just outside. The only thing I would say is the rooms are a little hot, and the air con, which is only on for a limited period, doesn't really reach your box. Would recommend!


This is this most comfortable hostel that i've ever stay. Very clean, private and friendly staffs. Very close to shopping area. Only one washbasin per floor so you have to q up in the morning.

It is a great place. Your own cubicle with lights and power and a place to lock your things. It was great. About a five Knute walk to the BTS, but other than that an easy location. Clean, neat, and safe.


Wonderful place. Well away from the Khao San Road area close to transport links for BTS buses & airport express trains. The pods are possibly the comfiest bed I have has in SE Asia. Very clean. Showers worthy of a hotel. Huge lockers, swipe card entry into main are of hostel & dorms. Good breakfast choices. Only issue I would say is that security could be too good - if you forget your key when you go to the toilet you get locked out. And the pods did make it difficult to socialise.
