        Decent hostel with a good location”

        To start I'll say that the hostel is a cool, unique concept with the accommodation being made of shipping containers. The pool and common area looks really modern and trendy. The music they play from the bar is really nice! It was a bit weird though because you can't really tell where the bar area starts and the hostel common area starts, so it slightly felt like I was intruding on the bar area even though it was a part of the hostel. I rented a scooter through the hostel which was pretty seamless. For the negative: my bed wasn't ready when I arrived even though I came much later than the check-in time. The room was a bit messy but that's due to the big group of people that were travelling there together. The staff I interacted with spoke only a bit of English so there were troubles communicating at times. The beach is really close but you have to walk through a bunch of intense construction like active welding, etc. which didn't feel totally safe. But the beach is nice. No breakfast.

        Awesome Hostel”

        I picked UBox because I liked that unique design that the dorms are built out of containers and it wasn’t a disappointment! The bathroom and dorms were soooo clean. Everything is still very new. Big lockers in the dorm and curtains on every bed for some privacy. The Pool is small but very nice. The hostel itself is very small, but they made the best out of it: 10/10 The only negative thing is that the staff doenst speak english very well, but I experienced that this is normal in Thailand.
