The owners have closed up shop in Kata Beach. I don't believe you will be able to book even if you try but thought I would put this out there FYI. I gave it five stars because the owner was super cool and brought me to another nice hostel when I arrived on his doorstep!

Stayed briefly here on a recent trip - absolutely epic hidden gem with exceptional friendly staff. Sean made us feel very relaxed and was a great help in planning day trips and overnight adventures in and around Phuket. Highly recommended :)

The local knowledge from staff and long term residents can get anyone set for plans easily. I would recommend RNR to any traveler who values good company weather they are... More

We happen to fall upon this while exploring dive shops in town. Really great atmosphere and people. Rick was extremely nice and clearly passionate about diving and ecology! Tried to set up a dive day to Phi Phi but unfortunetely the boats were all booked on the day we were wanting to go. Would have come back but this was... More
