Very clean and comfortable. As a solo traveller it lacked sociable atmosphere. Best bed in Bangkok, you get an extra pillow :)
Boxpackers was excellent! I really love it, and will definitely go there again if i'm in Bangkok. The best part was the bed, it was super comfortable! Thank you so much!
Very clean and nice hostel with great beds where you have your personal space. Great breakfast as well with a menu of warm food as well as fruit and toast. Close to shopping as well.
Whilst staying here I was actually not very well so didn't get to explore around locally however the privacy of having your own box with covering curtain was great! Everything was very clean I must say and breakfast was always good! I did find it a bit quiet for someone out trying to meet people but I was only there for 2 nights! The shower was great! A small head and a larger rainforest shower head with hot water lockable cubicles and provided shower stuff! Good for quiet and privacy :)
Great hostel! Boxes are awesome, even though you are staying in a 'dorm' you get sense of privacy and you have your own light, power outlet and curtain you can close anytime. Very safe with magnetic key. Not super close to the center or main train but you can catch a tuk Tuk. Great breakfast and bar! Would stay there again for sure!
Great location in a cute neighborhood in Bangkok, just far enough off the main drag but just close enough to be with in walking distance to transportation and markets. Clean and friendly. Amazing complimentary breakfast and great coffee drinks!!! Highly recommended!!!
The hostel is clean but the room looks really a bit like sleeping in a box..but the advantage is the privacy you have there, each sleeping place is seperated with a wood wall, like a box. Everything else was very good
Aircon is pretty hard on in the rooms...

Not Even like on the pictures, small Rooms, dirty bathrooms, no Place to put washing items and no garbage bin in the bedroom. Bed is clean and quiet, very anonymous
Very fancy modern hostel - almost like a hotel!
What a fantastic hostel. I couldn't fault this place one bit :) the rooms and beds were perfect!!!!
Good hostel. Breakfast is included. Quiet place.
a map to the hotel "distinguishing nearby intersections will be helpful. it will also help if the directions include the "airport link" stop. much much less confusing -- and tedious; specially after a long flight.
Best hostel I've been at, ever. Modern and crisp design, even on the outside. The boxes are so quiet that in order to socialize you almost have to go to the kitchen upstairs (7th floor) or the bar/snooker area (1st floor). It's far from Khao San Road, which I personally enjoyed. I walked around randomly and wasn't accosted as a living wallet a single time. Found some great and authentic places in the general area around the hostel. Will definitely stay there again.
I like the set up of this hostel. The only slight problem is the alternating genders of bathrooms on each floor. You may be on a floor that has the opposite gender bathroom. Not a huge problem really, just an annoyance.
The novelty of sleeping "in the wall" is a huge reason for staying. We were lucky enough to be there when one of the managers was having a birthday which we were completely welcomed to. Everyone was friendly and helpful and the dorms and bathrooms were extremely clean
