Arrived in Phuket on a late evening flight, but it was a hassle-free trip from the airport to the guesthouse because I requested for an airport pickup from Steve days before I flew in. And although it was already very late (almost midnight, I think) when I reached the guesthouse, somebody is still up to meet me & checking-in was... More

I cannot recommend this guesthouse highly enough. We had been told my everyone to skip Phuket, or get to an island as soon as we could. We happened upon Pineapple Guesthouse at Karon, and ended up loving it so much we came back again post-island excursions before heading North. It is SO close to the nicest beach in Phuket, and...

We were arriving in Phuket late at night and booked a taxi through the guesthouse. Unfortunately there was no taxi there and it turned out that the manager had not passed on the information about us needing a taxi. We were bothered by the 'taxi mafia' at the airport and felt unsafe. We managed to call Pineapple and they sent... More

I couldn't remember this incident with the taxi but then realised the review is from a guest who stayed almost a year ago, so no surprise. Mistakes do occasionally happen and we can only apologise. More

Nice clean hotel with friendly staff located reasonably near kata beach (15-20 min walk) Good wifi. Good size room. A bit hard to find at night coming from the airport. Staff will arrange taxi for you for day trips at a good price.

Hi Travelers! I am sure most will find this hostel acceptable (comparably speaking)..and for the price its O.K. However, upon our arrival we did not feel welcomed. Staff were not overly friendly. They didnt bother to pull up our reservation so they gave us a room with a balcony. We offered to switch rooms because that was not what we... More

Not the same story regarding the room as I, the unfriendly Brit, got from my staff. The guests said they thought they had booked a balcony room whereas we had them booked into a standard. They were the ones that couldn't find their reservation. They then decided the area was too quiet for them so asked to check out after... More

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights while she was visiting me in Thailand. The property was close to the beach, has all the amenities we needed and has great owners. I got really sick and Steve went out of his way to make sure I was okay and got taken care of. They were able to point... More

Stayed in the 10 bed dorm for two nights and had a great time! The staff are amazingly friendly and there was never a single problem when we were there! There were plenty other people travelling and it was good to meet them all as we shared the same dorm! Aircon was available and we all had lockers with private... More

This guesthouse is really good value, the room was very clean and a nice little balcony. TV had limited channels but we didn't come to Thailand to box watch. We didn't eat here but the meals I saw looked good and generous portions. We arranged Transport to Koh Samui and the staff couldn't be more helpful Steve was friendly and... More

We loved this place. Steve one of the owners was extremely helpful with great advice and help he suggested a couple of very good and reasonably priced restaurants. There were good croissants one morning with good coffee at the guesthouse. We also appreciated beach towels.

I stayed for 4 nights in a dorm with fans, air-con at night, which was nice and clean (2 showers and a toilet in the dorm). You have your own locker and the staff is always willing to keep your key for you if you wanna go to the beach. The friendly staff were always happy to help, doesn't matter... More
