                I stayed here for 3 days. Because it is really good location and clear. But the disadvantage is that the air conditioner runs from 5 p.m to 10 a.m. I couldn’t stay at that time because it’s so hot. Except for that, everything is perfect for me.

                This hostel is great value and good location. The bed is comfortable. However, service is not bad that the staff sometimes come late for checking in and out. When I entered this hostel, I didn’t see the staff in lobby (desk). So I had to wait for 20-30 min until the staff arrived. The storage and towel is being costly.

                We loved this place. The staff was helpful and housekeeping cleaned every day. The common area upstairs was on the fifth floor so it was a bit of a climb to get there but worth it lol. The capsule was also awesome. They provided two curtains, one for privacy which could not be seen through and another more lace one so the ac could pass through more easily. This hostel also provided packets of coffee (nestea with creamer and sugar in it)

                Stuff is friendly 50/50. The lady who was welcoming us was helpful and polite. Rooms clean and calm but air conditioning is too strong so we’ve got cold after staying there because after shower you come in a fridge room. Good common area at 5th floor with terrace. Toilet rooms are clean. For using washing machine you have to pay, for rent towel also. But the most strange thing what we met there was impossible to leave luggage after check out. In this case you should pay for every hour additionally. And lady at check out was rude, she told us several times about we need to do check out, even if they have a mistake in booking where was written check out time is 23.00. But in fact as usual at 12.00. I’ll not recommend and will not stay again for sure. Not loyal place absolutely.

                This place is very clean and staff are helpful. The street is a bit for ‘massage lovers’ but the location is close to bts and mrt. There is no elevator in the building however there is not much stairs so you’ll be fine..

                A good hostel conveniently located close to the bts as well as lots bars and restaurants in sukhumvit. Spacious pods with good lighting and wifi and no noise. rooftop common area with tea and coffee. Improvements could be made with personal fans in the pods as the ac is only on between 10 am- 6pm. All in all good for relaxing but not much socialising.

                The place is cheap and clean. Although, we had a hard time sleeping on our last day since its friday and maybe tourist are starting to arrive early morning like 1 am. So you can hear the murmur and fixing of their belongings.

                Clean room, smelly pantry, Great location”

                The rooms are generally clean and it is located in a great location. 7 mins walk to phrom phong BTS station. However the cleanliness of the pantry could be improved. It smelt like pee when we are there.

                Great for our team seminar”

                We wanted something affordable, central, and able to fit many of our team members for a 1 week seminar. We had all of these, and it felt like a relief to join our "big" queen size capsule after a day of work or conference and a lot of traveling around the city; Staff very friendly and useful

                No surprise, great location & convenience”

                I booked the Matchbox for the 6 people in my company for our team seminar, as we knew we would not spend a lot of time there. What I liked are the "queen size" capsule where you feel less cramped than the usual 1 person one. Very well located and lots of cool street foods and things to see around, will go back if needed!

                endless favorites :) 1) their lobby (can sit there to chill with a cold drink) 2) their beds, superb privacy, clean, room temp is just nice, awesome space 3) hospitality - the reception will always make sure you're at home and comfortable 4) location, like 20 mins away from Siam, walking distance to BTS, nearby mall, coffee shops :) besides 7 eleven next door there's a family mart too :D ... everything seems to be endless. :) i'll surely comeback here :)

                Ideal for Solo travellers”

                Comfortable, clean, safe

                Check-in process was quick and simple enough; I arrived at 1AM so that helped a lot. The location is quite easy to find (just a turn from Sukhumvit main road) and right next to 7-eleven so much convenient to grab any essential stuffs. It was my first time travelling alone and also my first time staying in a dorm-type hostel. It was far more excellent than my expectation. I stayed on the 3rd floor, the mixed room consisted of 8 beds. Mine has a safe locker, TV, mini hooks to hang clothes, and a quite spacious locker under the bed; which are everything I need for my stay. What I worried the most in every trip is the bathroom. However, the bathroom at Matchbox is not only well equipped but also very clean. I only wish if the hostel can provide hygiene kits, it would be best. Plus, the staff can only speak a little English. I've got problems setting up the 3G Internet on Thai sims and it was actually very difficult to explain or ask for some helps.
