After ordering our meals, we started up a game of chess. The owner approached us, a lovely and down to earth gentleman, and shared his history with chess. Great service and even better food. Really down to earth and friendly vibe about to the place, will visit again.

The room was comfortable and the food in the restaurant was delicious. The hostel is perfect for people interested in the night life or families wanting to relax. Everyone who I met that works at Southern Fried Rice was welcoming and helpful. I highly recommend this location to anyone interested in coming to Phuket.

We stayed here right at the end of the low season. The decor looks a little tired but everything was clean & comfortable. If you're after luxury, this probably isn't the place for you, but we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as an excellent budget guesthouse. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The pool table in the restaurant downstairs... More

Stayed here for one week. The room was really cheap (low season helped reduce the price). It is quite spacious, has a small Safe, TV, Double bed and fridge. However, is was a bit dirty, the sheets were torn in some places and the bathroom (outside the room in my case) was always wet and a bit messy due to... More

I am traveling solo and stayed here a few nights. I was very happy to have my own nice and big room! The staff is very friendly, the food is good, and the beach is 5-7 minutes walking. There isn't a whole lot to do there if you don't have a scooter or another means of transportation. But it's good... More
