Nice enough hostel, but very out of the way. Unless you're only interested in going to the shopping malls I recommend staying elsewhere. There was a common area with a pool table and games, but I never saw a single person in there. Beds are ok, decent sized individual pods make for good privacy. This hostel would be ok if traveling with a group or if you're looking for solitude. Wasn't for me!


The hostel was great as the beds were very private. Access to the hostel felt very safe as you were given an access card. Location was a 10-15 minute walk from the airport link which goes to BKK airport. Breakfast was included in next door cafe and was substantial enough. Good stay!

15 min walk from bts. Staff try to be helpful but don't speak English the best so hard to communicate. hard to meet backpackers due to small social area which is located on top floor not on bottom.


Great hostel, very clean, quiet. A lot of open communal space, but no one was really hanging out. Has potential to be a lively spot, but was perfect for my trip as I was just using bangkok as a stopping point to other cities. Able to store luggage on days not in bangkok. Very nice, would use again for similar purpose, not for meeting other travelers.


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!!!
