Would not call this a "hostel". Private rooms w/ showers in every room, VERY clean, good wifi, air con, 5-10 min walk to both kata and karon beach. front staff lady was wonderful, hard working and helpful. also, far prefer the karon area (family friendly, clean) rather than patong (crude, party town). would stay again in a heart beat.

We arrived at the 'Phuket Holiday Hostel' at about 9pm on 1st January. We were greeted by a lady who straight away called "the boss" and passed the phone over to us. We were then told that she had cancelled the booking 2 weeks prior, of which we had not received any confirmation of. (It was booked through hotels.com) on... More

As backpackers travelling South East Asia for a year, we arrived at Kata and found the area was such a tourist holiday destination and accommodation was very highly priced. We stumbled across Phuket holiday hostel and thought brilliant there's actually a "hostel" we could try. Once inside it was nothing compared to a hostel it was much more like a... More

Great cheap option in Kata, we arrived very late one night and luckily they had an emergency number to call, the kind lady arrived soon to book us in at 12 at night! Rooms are clean and comfortable, not lavish but exactly what you need. Air con, free WIFI, housekeeping daily, comfy beds, good shower. Close to the main beach... More

We just stay there for one morning's rest (late flight arrival). The staffs are very kind. It's not a high-level hotel, but the price is really low comparing to Kata beach standards. Our standard double room's interior looks a bit old, but maintained ok. You may need to be careful with their shower, the electric heater may cause too hot... More

I was very disappointed when I arrived here after reading good reviews. As a traveller I have stayed allover thailand for 6 weeks so I have a good concept of many hotels and an open mind! What annoyed me the most was the false advertisement, our room was very dirty and run down, the balcony door wouldn't shut and it... More

I stayed there for around 8 nights in the middle of December. Originally only for 4 days but kept missing the check out. Staff were very friendly and accomodating and the rooms were very clean and good value. Right next to bars/restaurants. PS. Sorry for losing my key!

We booked a room with no window but got a room with a balcony. It would have been nice but the view was quite bad - some kind of wasteland. The location was very good (not too far from the beach) but the motel was a bit difficult to find. The room was old fashioned and unclean, the toilet looked... More
