Stayed here for two nights while in kata; great value and great people. Hot water, wifi (outside room), towel included, reading lights. Convenient and great stay. Thanks guys! I'd definitely stay here again. See nearby we tours with eheh for a great deal on transfers too. Too bad it's so hard to get around phuket!

I planned to stay here for 4 nights, doing my open water course. It's a very friendly place with a reasonable price. The staff is very helpful and it's located in a quiet place, but still close enough to the beach. Just be aware, that you can get stuck in here 'cause you like it so much!!! :) I ended... More

This was a lovely little place, very cheap but somewhat hard to find. It was basically living in a dive shop which was great. The owners are wonderful and helpful, the guys who hangout and dive there make you feel so at home and comfortable, it's quiet they have everything you need and there is always someone around to chat...

I stayed here for 2 nights, and really enjoyed my stay. The place was clean, and the staff were really friendly. This was also a very eco-friendly establishment which I think was my favourite aspect of it! It was also situated on top of a PADI dive centre, which made is really convenient for when I went diving. It was... More

A great place to stay, the dorm rooms are budget priced but are well cleaned with excellent shower and bathroom. Centrally located close to the beach, I found it a great place to stay while studying for my PADI Idc

Family diving trip, everything from open water to bubble-making. Friendly and extremely competent team - absolutely perfect for both experienced divers, but also for introducing the children to scuba. We'll be coming back.

this place is meant for divers. i didn't think my being a non-diver would make a difference, but the staff, though friendly, super talkative, and informative/helpful, basically switched off when we didn't show interest in any diving courses. that was after an extensive review of the rules of staying there (basically the same as anywhere, but this was the only...

My instructor, Chris, made my diving experience great. He explained everything thoroughly and was very knowledgable. I did my advanced open water course with Rumblefish and I have nothing but good things to say about them. The staff is very friendly and made everything easy for me.

I stayed at Rumblefish Inn for 4 nights and completed the Open Water course. I went to Rumblefish after having my first bad experience in the States at a shoddy dive operation.
