I wanted a budget accommodation with a bit of privacy in a modern spot. I was lucky to have a pad with a window which made all the difference. The room itself also had windows, something to request if you get depressed otherwise. The boxes are as illustrated and arriving is pretty painless. They will ask for a $500 B deposit for the key that opens multiple electronic doorways, there is a skinny lift for luggage but mine didn't fit, so it was 3 flights up stairs. When breakfast is included there is a choice of 4 dishes plus a buffet of white toast, juice, tea and coffee. The installations are pretty modern and inviting, though they won't turn the AC till 6pm and some of the common areas will be hot as hell! Overall a good and comfy experience in the Siam Square area, the sky train is only a short walk from the location which is a blessing. Avoiding the hardcore Bangkok traffic is a must, specially any route near the railway crossing. DO NOT take the bus or a taxi to the Airport or Train station, you must likely won't make it!

I fell in love with the hostel right away! The feel is really comfortable and the design is really cute! I love the facilities! I just felt that the staff is not that welcoming & friendly but it fine.. Also they turn the aircondition off midday. I dont like that.. I love their breakfast!

I flew to Bangkok planning to head straight out South, I came a across this chic hostel, booked a night, but stayed to, upgraded the second night from a pod to a double room, I'm greedy like that! The pods are a brilliant idea, I've now stayed in many places in Bangkok and to be honest this has been the best of a good lot by far. I'm planning to return and stay when I head north again to go to Chang Mai, I'm sure I'll be staying again on my return to Bangkok for the journey home! Love Bangkok, love Thailand and love the Pod hostel!!!

Stayed here for a night, and it was a pleasant stay. Staff will try to allow for early check in if possible, but that is subject to availability (as any traveller should know). There are several lounge areas to hang out at, and the beds and bathroom facilities are pretty decent. They have a locker just by your beds for storage of backpacks, and maybe small to medium (?) sized luggages. Breakfast was normal for a hostel: they offer a choice of 4 set menus with a mix of eggs, sausages and rice dishes, on top of a small toast, cereal, salad, juice, milk, coffee buffet. Location wise the area is pretty accessible. I walk to and fro the BTS all the time, but I travel light. Shouldn't cost that much for a tuk tuk/taxi if you have luggage though. The hostel provides easy access to the Pratanum area for shopping (if that's your thing). Arunda massage just down the street gives a decent massage if you're tired after all that shopping.

Excellent! But a pity the shower heater comes on and off. Rooms are nicely done up, just that when new backpackers come in, the sounds from the lockers and their actions are very loud and it disrupts my sleep. But overall, such cozy hostel!

The hostel location is the biggest selling point. It's walkable to the skyrail link for the airport, walkable to the major malls (pantip plaza, diamond fashion, palladium...). Super clean rooms and showers. Each "box" has a draw curtain, plug point, night light and a reading light. This place had the most privacy of all the hostels I've stayed in. Only thing that could've been better was the AC / air vents. There are no individual fans, and the AC is set to about 27-28C. I get hot when sleeping, so was a lil uncomfortable at times.

This place is brand-new and very safe. Locks on every door, secure lockers, private cubicles, a great lounge, delicious breakfasts, helpful staff, and quite quiet at night. Close to the Baiyoke Sky Hotel and the Ratchathewi metro station. Great value for the price, highly recommended!

Boxpackers is situated near many shopping malls that are easily accessible by walking. The nearest BTS is less than a 10-minute walk. Hotel staff are friendly and very willing to help. Get to make new friends living in the same dormitory, or at the cafe during breakfast.

我第一次泰國自助旅行。住了這家背包客棧,雖然,是在一條小巷內,但是他臨近百貨商圈,到便利商店也很近,在旅社的同一條路上,前頭是按摩街。 搭乘交通工具也非常方便。 服務生很有禮貌,我詢問問題,也都給很明確的答覆。 是一家,我下次去泰國,還會選擇住那的旅社。

저는 도미토리 룸에 묵었는데요 각 침대마다 사물함이 있고 관리도 잘 되어 만족스러웠습니다. 그리고 직원의 서비스가 굉장히 만족스러웠습니다. 제가 핸드폰을 잃어버렸을때 많은 도움을 주었고 위치나 관광지 등 호텔서비스와는 관계없는 질문에도 잘 대답해 주었습니다. 자는동안 에어컨을 빵빵하게 틀어주어 편안한 숙면을 취할 수 있었습니다. 그리고 무엇보다 마음에 들었던 서비스는 아침식사 서비스였습니다. 아침식사시에 3가지 메뉴중 하나를 선택하면 즉시 주방에서 요리를 내옵니다. 그외 시리얼이나 토스트, 커피 등은 무한정 가져다 먹을 수 있습니다. 가격대비 정말 만족했던 3일 이었습니다.

"Nice hostel"
04/10/15 joey1112
Best hostel I have stayed in, in Bangkok. Really clean and security was great. Also very good breakfast had lots of choice. Location is good for shopping malls, but it's far from the old town, Chinatown and temples and that. Lacked good atmosphere, more of a group or couple kinda place. Would recommend.

"Very good, but expensive"
04/07/15 CamilaPeloso Sao Paulo, SP
The hostel is great, clean and good location. But the staff wasn't much helpful and the price is too high compared to other hostels. The boxes are a great place to sleep, they are quiet big and is a great place to sleep.

For the backpacker, it's a wonderful place to stay, having a sumptuous break fast, good location for shopping, beautiful ambience, neat rooms and courteous and helpful staff. On my next journey to Bangkok I will stay here only.

"Excellent place to stay in Bangkok"
04/01/15 demihhwang Chiang Mai, Thailand
The spot is good. It's located in the central of the city. You can walk to Siam Paragon and Central World in 15 minutes. Walking out of the hostel, there are dozens of stands on the streets, which is good for purchasing snacks. The staff are very nice and helpful. My luggage was very heavy and they carry it for me to the 4th floor which I appreciated very much. The bed and bathroom is clean. You can see people cleaning them all the time. What I love the most here is the breakfast. For a hostel, the breakfast choices are really good. They make it right after your order. It's definitely worth staying.

"Boxpackers Hostel"
03/31/15 JeremySG69 Singapore, Singapore
The location of Boxpackers Hostel is quite ideal. It is in the Pratunam area and you can easily walk to the BTS stations and Airport Rail Paya Thai Station and the shopping malls at Siam area. The pod style bed is a good concept. You have more privacy despite it being a hostel. You can have a good sleep without being disturbed by other. The room is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is included. Simple but more than sufficient. Free wifi is included as well. Overall it is quite value-for-money.

"Excellent experience"

Ideal location, clean, friendly, modern, comfortable, calm. And cheap. We had an excellent time there. The breakfast is included and very good. You can easily walk to Baiyoke Towers and Jim Thompson's house. A few mosquitos in the non AC bathrooms, bring your mosquito repellent. Just a bit difficult to find without a map.

Near shopping, lots of massages next to hostel, near platinum fashion mall, opposite pantip plaza, near platunam market, good location. This was my second time stay in boxpackers hostel. Take train from airport to phaya Thai station, walk 20 mins to hostel, its easy! Will come back again!

A clean and beautiful place. I slept like a baby there. The stuff is very nice. They kept my backpack for free when I was travelling in Cambodia. Its a 10 mins walk from the Airport rail Phaya Thai station, so no need to take a tuk tuk, you can just walk there.
