The Mini Boxtel has brought the trendy hostel scene to central Ao Nang.

Photo of Mini Boxtel Hostel
Located in the same dead-end side street that’s hosted budget guesthouses like Jinda and J Mansion for years, the minimalist hostel aims for artsy backpackers with a bit of cash. The “box” or “pod” dorm beds will cost you up to twice as a regular bunk at some of Ao Nang’s other hostels, but they get you a lot more privacy thanks to mattresses in a nook setup with wooden walls and ceilings to go with the privacy curtain at the entrance. Each air-conditioned nook also comes with private reading lamp, electrical outlet and personal storage area. The mattresses are placed lengthwise in each “chamber,” so that your feet point towards the entrance curtain, which might feel too coffin-like for some. The “bottom shelf” bunks are placed just above the clean tile floors. Bunks are available in mixed and women-only, with no private rooms, and the shared bathrooms are beyond adequate. A continental breakfast is included in the rates, served on a breezy rooftop terrace with sea views, tables, floor cushions and a guitar or two. We dug the abstract art with greens and purples dripping off white canvasses and continuing on the white walls. If you prefer a more straightforward hostel, the Ao Nang Hostel for Backpackers is right across the street.
