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.
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
Very clean, well-designed hostel, good breakfast, friendly staff, easy reached most locations by buses.
This hostel was soooo good! Everything is wonderful! I recommend to everyone!!!!!

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.
