    VERY comfortable! Clean! Lovely backpackers hostel”

    Nice staff. Very clean. Comfortable bed!

    Boxpackers hostel is such a lovely, clean hostel! After travelling around South East Asia for over 3 months it was nice to get to a place where the room is spotlessly clean. The same for the bathrooms! The pod style beds are really cool and so comfortable! There was a few issues with hot water but staff would sort it out as soon as they could! The breakfast is great. I would definitely recommend this to a backpacker still on a budget but who would like a more chilled out atmosphere and a clean comfortable stay! The location is about a 10-15 minute walk from Siam square, you can get cheap enough taxis or tuk tuks to Koh San Road and Sukhumvit road (if your willing to barter) but there's enough around the area of Boxpackers to keep you entertained if your just passing through!

    Boxpackers is the perfect place to say for budget travellers. You get excellent service, delicious breakfast, hair dryers, 24hot water, great airconditioning in a very hot city and very helpful staff. It was a fun place to meet like minded travellers and for a hostel it felt very posh. The beds/boxes were really roomy and more private than a hostel. The location was fantastic, easy walk to major shopping centres, bus to khao San road and grand palace or get a tuk tuk for a small price. They have group chill out areas wih flat screens and DVDs for if you want to escape the bangkok heat. Great place to stay. We will be going back

    Marvelous but not expensive! ”

    I initially booked only for a night coz I am moving to different areas of Bangkok everyday. I found the hostel to be the most suitable for me on Agoda so I booked it and yes it was. After staying 2 nights in a different area, I came back to this great location and didn't think twice of booking Boxpackers again. The beds (dorm) are very comfortable and very spacious, enough for you to put a lot of your stuff next to you. The hostel is very organized. Their female staffs are very nice, especially Beau (very jolly and pretty) who can put a smile on your face by mere talking to you in English with her Thai accent and expressions. I suggest getting the breakfast package. It's really good for just a little bit more $! Thinking to book a couple more days here until I'm flying to Vietnam this weekend.

    Centrally located, nice design, friendly staff

    I stayed at Boxpackers hostel for 4 nights totally. At first, I just booked 2 nights because this was the first time I have stayed in a dorm, and very nervous somehow. But after the first night, I decided to book for the rest of my trip. The hostel was more than I ever expected, beautiful design, friendly staff, nice roommates, etc. However, the room was a little bit hot at noon, because the air-con is just turned on from 6pm to 8am, therefore, you should avoid staying at dorm at noon. The bathroom is nice as well. In short, everything at this hostel is cool, it's worth your money and would make your trip become more memorable.

    Clean, Cosy, Style

    There's almost nothing that I don't like about this hostel. I love the cleanliness and the whole design of this hostel. Though, the location is a bit far from BTS Station (approx. 700 meters from Ratchathewi BTS Station), but it is still acceptable and it's not a big deal if compared with the good things of the Boxpackers Hostels. I would certainly come back again on my next travel to Bangkok.

    Wonderful Hostel, clean, great safety”

    This is my first time staying in a hostel. previously i have stayed hotels close by this hostel and one day i just ask one the staff to show me the hostel rooms and their sister hotel The Period which is next to the hostel. Before i book this place i had a chance to look and justify that I'm going to book something really worth. The guests who come to stay here are young decent travellers who know how to behave and respect others. Hotel has electroninc key system at the entrence, entrance which leads to the rooms after recreation area and entrance of your room. Basically 3 times you have to use your electrinic key device to excess to your room and CCTV cameras are in every floor. I believe its a great safety measures taken by the hostel management. Toilets and shower rooms clean and well kept always. The cubes /boxes you stay is very comfortably designed with privacy. Ambience inside the box is cozy and great which i liked very much.Daily changing the linens and towels. Location is great if you love shopping, food (local street food, restaurants, fast food restaurants, food trucks). Very lively place where you see the Bangkok culture and people from every corner of the world are there. Its great place for families to visit with children. Staffs are very helpful , polite especially the guy at night shift.

    unique, convenient, cozy

    It is definitely a great experience staying at Boxpackers. The concept of staying in a box is unique and refreshing. It may seem claustrophobic at first but once you check in to the personal box space, the coziness you will experience far exceeds any initial doubts about your choice. Although it is a hotspot for backpackers, it was the most ideal for amateur backpackers like me. The resting place in a box with a curtain in front provided me with sufficient privacy and the common area at the top level just made me feel right at home with a flat screen TV and big bean bags. All in all, it was a wonderful stay and I will definitely stay at Boxpackers again if I am back in Bangkok.

    I and my brother spent 3 nights at Boxpackers and we have say that the hostel was really good for backpackers and budget travelers. The boxes are big enough to have comfortable stay. Each box has its own locker which is also large enough to put 10-20kg suitcase, so it solved my worry about the safety. In general the hostel is good, except for the public bathroom, which only has hot water from around 7pm and might be crowded during night time.

    Privacy, contemporary design, comfort

    Boxpackers offers a really great design for both social interaction and privacy. I've never stayed in a hostel where I could be comfortable sleeping naked... until now! The box-bed design is a new favorite of mine. The bunks are sturdy, and you won't interrupt anyone with lights/ climbing into bed, etc. The complimentary breakfast was the best I've had traveling in SE Asia, and considering the cheap price of the beds you can't go wrong! The location is away from the fun downtown/ bar areas, but a short train/taxi/tuk-tuk ride from the shopping district -- which was great for me since I was only in Bangkok to recharge from a cold and resupply before heading north. The staff was not very helpful either with language barriers, or even in being able to point me in the right direction. Just be ready to do your own legwork, but otherwise a great stay!

    Sleeping in a Box”

    it's centraly located at petchaburi road, pratunam.. just 10 minutes walking to Ratchathewi BTS station and just 5 minutes walking from the shopping paradise, Platinum Mall.

    It was a pleasure staying at this hostel. The design was really nice and modern that we're actually feels like home. It was also very nice that they have a very clean and tidy room. Unlike other hostels, Boxpackers hostels used giant size wooden boxes as the beds. You still can have privacy as they have curtains to cover each boxes. They also have a very nice and comfortable common area upstairs. You may drink coffee, have a tea and do the laundry here. I used this place to relax after a very tiring shopping at platinum mall. Boxpackers located near Ratchathewi BTS station which we only one station away from Phaya Thai the airport rail link interchange. I took this train to the airport. They provide breakfast every morning for asian and western guests. We can pick one of 4 sets breakfast they provided. The taste was okay and you can eat the buffet if you don't feel full enough. The staff was nice and friendly and they speak English quite okay that we still can get what they meant. I love this place and definitely will stay here again.

    Staff, nice sleeping cubbyhole, locale

    Upon arriving at the hostel, you are greeted by a young and vibrant energy surrounding the 2 adjacent building; one is a hotel and the other is a hostel. But they both offer value for money. The location itself is a drawing point, being minutes away from the main shopping area within Bangkok itself (platinum, siam vicinity); and there's a row of massage places to choose from with value for money prices after a long day of walking to ease those aching muscles. The rooms are air-conditioned with new units, beds were nice and clean, and the shower facilities were good as well, with soap and shampoo provided. Basically, if you were looking for a place to bunk and crash for a good night's sleep, this would be it. I was fortunate to have good friendly neighbours as well who were considerate towards being quiet and not intruding into my own living space. Overall, highly highly recommended for a good night's rest! Cheers.

Its located in the other side of Pratunam area where all the bargain shop are located. I like the bed so much because it was too comfy for me. I like the way the hostel clean the place every day and change the bed sheet and all every day. Perfect simple buffet breakfast which you something to choose. Surely as hell i will keep coming back here and I will certainly recommend it to my friends though its quite expensive for hostel price.
