This was my first guesthouse in Thailand... and I've been very satisfied! At first, boxpackers isn't far of the airport. You can use the airport railway link to roadends and then walk 15 mins max or get a tuktuk for cheap. The room and restroom are clean and safe. I'd recommend a pair of flipflop into the shower still.

My friend found this hostel for the start of our month trip in Southeast Asia, and while I was looking to save money she wanted more comfort. Having stayed here I am glad we went with the slightly higher priced hostel. It's safe and secure, air conditioned, clean and modern. Breakfast is included, and while small is all you need.... More

Boxpackers is one of the best hostels I've stayed in on my travels. The name comes from its space-saving method of stacking remarkably spacious sleeping boxes on top of each other. You definitely won't bang your head! Located on a quiet road, it feels very peaceful and the multiple card swipe entry points make you feel very secure. The room... More

A modern, clean hostel with pods instead of bunks which means it's *almost* like having your own room. Stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of a trip to SE Asia and again before my flight home. The whole place is very clean with good security (you need a special key fob to get into the building and also into... More

The first impression of the hostel has already impressed me. The best part about this hostel is that you need to take off shoes before you get up to the rooms, I personally like this a lot. It's just like you are home! This has made the rooms and toilets extra clean! The dorms are super comfy as cooling in... More

This is an amazing boutique hostel! The double pods are great. Very spacious and quirky. The bathrooms are clean with shared toilettries available. The best part is the upstairs lounge with the huge bean bags and dvd area over looking bangkok. Also the kitchen area is available to all. The breakfast is great a self service of drinks and cereal... More

My friends and I stayed for 3 nights in Boxpackers Hostel. We were 5 in the group and got the 6 pods room. Luckily, no one booked the last bed so we got the room to ourselves. We were really surprised at how big and comfortable each pod was! 2 of our friends even stayed in 1 pod during our... More

Only stayed for one night whilst passing through Bangkok but this place was perfect. Lots of areas to socialise, yet the privacy of your own 'pod' type thing. Had a double and it was massive! Plenty of bathrooms and space, very cleverly designed. Staff were friendly and ready to help. Only possible improvement would perhaps be a lift, as it's... More

Boxpackers was exactly what i needed and wanted. it was centrally located in a nice street away from the noise of the avenue, I was particularly happy about the window which made all the difference and since Im a big fan of capsule hotels this was just perfect. The restaurant had a good selections of dishes for any occasion and... More
