    Double bed capsule”

    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)

    A nice hostel ”

    Matchbox is a nice hostel. It is sweet with the small ‘rooms’ which make you feel it is a room. Unfortunately we were there with some not very clean guests so the bathroom and especially the toilet wasn’t very clean. This is very disgusting. But not the fault of the accommodation. The area where matchbox is located is good, you can walk some minutes to the metro or sky train or just walk a while. On one morning we got woken up by the staff because she wanted to know if we want to have clean our bed. This was very strange because we were asleep and she touched my feet and shaked it to wake me up. This is a no go!

    Great location and the staff is nice. We stayed here just to drop our packs on our last day in Thailand so we didn’t sleep. The capsules are clean and large with plenty of space for two people. We asked for a bottom bunk but the lady working said they didn’t have any open. We later found out they were all open, she was just lazy & didn’t want to get us a new key. Oh well, no big deal. Clean bathrooms & quiet hostel. Don’t expect to meet others here.
