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!!!

I spent my last five nights in Bangkok at Boxpackers in January 2015 The staff here are lovely and very helpful. The facilities are v good for backpacker style accommodation. My lil box was lovely, I had a window view, my locker was handy and under my bed, the mattress and pillow were sooo comfy, close to showers & toilets, it was quiet and there was aircon and a fan. Yay for Free breakfast, I was a bit over eating a cooked breakfast by then so loaded up on coffee and had toast or fruit (with a bit of yoghurt I bought from the 7 eleven). Great location to 7 eleven (2mins walk), BTS (8mins), klong/canal ferry (15mins), night street markets & food was put back on my bed instead of having to collect it.(5mins), dentists & optometrists (5mins), about four malls (12mins). Boxpackers even did my laundry for 100baht - cheapest in Thailand, although admittedly they didn't fold it but it was returned to my 'box' when done. Enjoyed finishing a long day tripping around with a cold Chang and free wifi at 'Period' café which is connected to Boxpackers, perfect for sending emails home and writing travel reviews. The wifi is fast and works everywhere in the Boxpackers and Period buildings. You have to pay 500baht deposit for the key, which is OK coz that was my taxi money to the airport!!

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.

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.

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.

Siam 중심가에서 멀지 않은 거리이기때문에 다른 곳으로의 접근성이 좋다. 박스형에 커튼이 있어서 프라이버시를 지켜주며, 아주 깨끗하다. 샤워실 , 화장실도 깨끗함. 조식은 기본 토스트와 음료 야채셀러드가있고, 에그와 라이스등의 종류 중에서 주문을 할 수 있다. 조식도 만족스러움. 직원들의 서비스는 친절하지만, 사무적이다.

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.

"So so"
05/24/15 Cheryl O Penang, Malaysia
Far from the shopping mall area like Siam Square, Siam Paragon. Only close to Pratunam Market and Platinum Fashion Mall. Far from BTS station. Have to walk around 1.5km to get to the BTS station. Toilet wasn't so clean. There were stains on the floor for the few nights I was staying. Stayed in a double pod which means I had 2 sides of the lockers but they gave me keys to only 1 side of the locker because the lockers were linked together, however, it was difficult to get our luggage in and out just from 1 side. The good side is there is free breakfast. The pods were clean. Mattress was comfy.
Overall Rating
"Great place, good location, very nice breakfast"
05/21/15 DannMo Hanoi, Vietnam
It's in a good central location. MRT and BTS are very closed. I liked the concept of the Box/Pod bed; you can have almost the same privacy as getting a private room. The breakfast is very good also. Nice place for a solo traveler It was my first time in Bangkok, and this hostel was more than I expected. It's worth to pay some more compared to other hostels.

"Nice for solo travelers who wish to have some privacy"

Overall it is a good stay, the bed is comfortable and the "box" is quite big actually. I'm over 160cm and can almost stand inside the cube. The cleanliness is not as fantastic as i read from other reviews, but still considered as well maintained.

I was recommend this hostel/Hotel to stay. It is clean, well staffed, and has all the little comforts (like two soft pillows, a down comforter, hairdryer, lockers with keys provided, lights and plugs in every pod, good wifi in the rooms and common areas, etc.) The included breakfast is an actual nice breakfast for a backpacker. Location is good. I will be staying here anytime I need a room in Bangkok.

The place has a superb bed! Breakfast is provided as well! Really a good place to go for a vacation! It is also situated really close by platinum shopping mall and a walkable distance to Siam paragon and MBK centre. If more movies could be provided it would have been awesome!

"Boutique Hostel"
04/18/15 Annya1012 Malaysia
We booked our entire stay there,in a 4bed dorm with shared bathroom. This is my second time in bangkok but first time in this hostel. I was expected they will send me an email inform me how to get there(one of the hostel in bangkok they did it). So, I send they an email asked them, but their reply wasnt helpful for me. They assigned us at the top floor, which have private balcony. The room looks new, bed is comfortable,covered by curtain. The negative things are, they dont have lift, gonna climb up to level 6, it kill me everytime when i got back,always tired to go out. They will switch off and switch on the air condition in specific time. Can you imagine you are in thailand, and the climate is so hot,feel like melted and you just wanna rest in the room but without air condition and you paid quite expensive,like 550bath per night for my bed.. Breakfast is simply,i expect more choices,like yogurt. Not all the staff are friendly,here specially thanks to Anek,he is very helpful and friendly,warmest smile make our day.. Location is OK, not far from BTS but also certain distance. Outside got many spa, should try thai massaga! Experience once is enough.

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.
