About Funky Box hostel
The British owned bar and hostel is run by Alan Bate, the Guinness round the world record holder for the fastest circumnavigation of the planet by bicycle (one lap), his wife May and their small son, Mario. The bar normally opens to around midnight and offers a fun environment for meeting fellow travelers, having a laugh which more often than not turns into a party. We offer a warm welcome which will make you instantly feel part of the family. Be careful not to get Mario'd though, as fellow travelers call it.
No two nights are the same and the eclectic atmosphere lends itself to random nights, where we may play games or have talented guests entertaining us with music or song.
Funky box is a mixed dormitory, which can accommodate up to 16 people. We offer an opportunity for great value to travelers on a budget. Breakfast is available from 7.30 am and we offer a grab and go breakfast or lunch bag for those wishing to leave early for chiang mai or laos. we have an all day western menu with generous portions.
Our friendly place is here to provide a great atmosphere and we welcome all people of all nationalities, whether travelling alone or in tandem!
Reception in the common room, is open for check-in from 12 pm until 10 pm. Luggage can be left for safe keeping prior to 12 pm. All linen is provided and a towel. Security lockers are provided and each bed has it's own power supply.
We are situated in the center of Chiang Khong village in Soi 2, 13 kilometers from the border and 800 meters from the bus terminus.
Local attractions, some unknown to travelers, include: Nam Chang dam(5km), a 10 km long dam surrounded by jungle, the view point(15 km) and authentic non-tourist hill tribe villages. All are reachable by bicycle, available to hire.
The golden triangle, where Laos, Thailand and Myanmar meet in the mekong river is just 60 km away and the relatively unknown phu chi fa, is 70 km from the village.
